An example of the difference between permanent and serious injuries is this. Suppose you are in a car accident, are hit from behind by an individual, and you need to have back surgery because of the injury.
And then rehab. Then trouble sitting for any length of time. Not permanent but serious problems. Understand?
Let Pittsburgh Wrongful Death, Car Accident, Medical Malpractice and Slip & Fall Attorney Bernie Tully help you prove that the injury affected your daily activities for a sustained period of time.
This is a good reason why it is important to immediately contact an attorney after you are involved in a car accident. Why?
Because we can immediately start to document the treatment that you have been receiving since the date of the car accident.
We can get your records quickly for you if we are involved in your case from the beginning.
The value to that is that we can send all that paperwork over to the insurance company and tell them that this is a case that gets over the limited tort threshold because of the length of your treatment and the fact that it is affecting your daily activities for a long period of time.
So the bottom line is even if you select the limited tort option for your car insurance, don’t give up.
At least contact Pittsburgh Wrongful Death, Car Accident, Medical Malpractice and Slip & Fall Attorney Bernie Tully for a FREE meeting and discussion of your case.
And it won’t cost you a dime!
One of the saddest things I have to do as an attorney is take calls from people who were in car accidents and they want to know if they can sue.
They tell me that they were rear ended in an accident by another driver. Great start.
Next they tell me that they had sprains and strains of their back and neck and have received treatment with their family doctor, physical therapist and possibly a chiropractor.
Lastly I ask them that follow-up question.
What tort did you select? They tell me limited tort.
I then tell them that they may or may not be able to pursue a $$
claim for their injuries because they selected limited tort.
Usually what they will say to me is why is that? I didn’t cause the accident. Somebody else did.
That is very true.
However, the law says if you select limited tort, even if it is the other person’s fault completely, you may not be able to pursue a claim for your injuries unless you can get over that serious injury threshold.
The only way to know for sure is to call us.
Did I tell you the consultation is FREE? Ha Ha Yes, I know I did.
That’s all for now.
How about them Steelers? Will they make the play-offs?
