Car Accident Litigation is Okay

Car Accident

Car Accident Attorneys deal with a multitude of hurdles when they try to recover damages on behalf of their Car Accident clients.  These can range from ambiguous evidence, a lack of or not enough insurance or an opposing party that refuses to even negotiate.  One of the biggest hurdles that Car Accident Attorneys will sometimes need to negotiate is the Car Accident clients themselves.

It is very easy to find statistics that point to our society becoming, if it is not already, overly litigious and there are a multitude of examples of what many would call frivolous lawsuits.  However, if Car Accident victims take the time to speak with Car Accident Attorneys about their case they will find that they should not feel any stigma about seeking compensation for a Car Accident and injuries that are not their fault.  Most Car Accident Attorneys stringently screen their Car Accident clients because there is no success in filing frivolous or questionable lawsuits.  In many Car Accident cases it is the Car Accident Attorneys themselves that are paying the costs of putting the Car Accident Case together and Car Accident Attorneys are spending valuable time working on the case, it is just bad business for Car Accident Attorneys to invest in Car Accidents with questionable liability or injuries.  If Car Accident Attorneys are willing to take on your Car Accident case they probably believe in its viability and by extension the justness of it.

Seeing Your Own Doctor In a Workers Compensation Case

Workers Compensation

In Missouri the law requires your employer to pay for any medical treatment you may require as a result of your work injury and Workers Compensation case but that does not mean that when you suffer a work injury you are free to go to any doctor you wish and obtain any treatment you like without caveat.  While your employer must pay the cost of the medical treatment in your Workers Compensation case the law also affords them the ability to choose what doctors you will see and while you have the ability to go to any doctor, a visit to a doctor not chosen by your employer may mean that you have to pay the cost of that visit out of your own pocket.

The way that the system is setup makes it very important for you to have a Workers Compensation Lawyer on your side.  An unfortunate consequence of this arrangement is that in many cases the employer will send their injured worker to a doctor that will either under diagnose the problem or recommend less treatment than may be necessary to fully address the work injury.  When this happens your Workers Compensation Lawyer can work to help you obtain additional treatment or obtain payment for medical bills that were accrued from doctors you visited without the consent of your employer.
