A personal injury lawsuit can be scary. The reality is that even a successful personal injury claim doesn’t make you rich—it gets you the money you need to recover the losses you have suffered because someone else acted in a negligent or careless manner. Part of the personal injury lawsuit process may include a required deposition. A deposition is an interview that is recorded to determine what the person knows about the facts of a case such as a car accident in Florida. A deposition will provide sworn, out-of-court, oral testimony for all parties involved in a lawsuit including witnesses if called upon to:
- Obtain important facts about the case
- Gather information about the strengths and weaknesses of the parties' arguments in the case
- Figure out how effective a plaintiff or witness may be when testifying at trial, and
- Determine how and when the underlying accident or injury occurred
You may also be wondering what happens after a deposition?
After a deposition occurs, the next step is a trial if both parties feel confident and strong about their case. While going to trial may seem scary and expensive, having an experienced Florida car accident lawyer by your side can make the process seem less daunting. The Law Offices of Matthew Konecky has over 17 years of experience fighting car accident cases in Florida and the resources to assist you.
At any point during a personal injury case, a settlement can be reached. The purpose of a settlement is to come to terms in which both parties agree. It's best to consult your Florida personal injury lawyer before settling to make sure you're not getting the worse end of the deal. You should never bear responsibility for the costs and loss of income associated with a car accident that was entirely out of your control. Before accepting a car accident settlement you should take into account:
- Pain and suffering
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
How Do I Pay My Medical Bills After a Car Accident in Florida?
A very common concern of accident victims in Florida is how they are going to pay their medical bills until they receive their settlement compensation. In most cases, you will not receive your financial compensation until the case is fully processed which can take months up to a year. Most injuries need immediate medical attention and cannot wait to be treated.
After a car accident, there are multiple ways to pay for needed medical attention such as PIP, health insurance, car insurance, and workers compensation.
No amount of money can ever restore your life after a severe accident, but a Florida car accident lawyer will fight on your behalf to obtain the compensation you deserve.
