Common Questions
About Personal Injury

Why do I need a personal injury attorney?
Three reasons: First, you are far more likely to obtain full compensation with a lawyer than if you faced insurance companies or negligent parties on your own. Based on our knowledge of personal injury law and our ability to file a lawsuit on your behalf, we can obtain better settlement offers. Second, it is much easier to have an attorney handle all the legal paperwork and details. We can identify all of the responsible parties and their insurance companies, set up the necessary claims, monitor the deadlines for each claim, order and follow up on a complete set of medical bills and records for your treatment, locate and contact witnesses, order police reports, and negotiate on your behalf. Third, our D.C. personal injury attorneys are better equipped to determine if the insurance company is making a fair offer. If you have no experience with the law surrounding the damages to which you are entitled, making decisions yourself would be equivalent to guessing -and well-meaning advice from friends and family can sometimes make matters worse by guiding you in the wrong direction.
The insurance company said I don't need an attorney - is that true?
Insurance companies often tell people who are making a claim that they don't need an attorney, and that the insurance company is on their side and will be fair to them. Don't forget whom they represent -the person who injured you. The insurance company has only one goal: paying out as little money as possible in every claim, and preferably nothing. Therefore, insurance companies tell you that you don't need a lawyer because they know it is to their advantage for you not to have one. The best thing to do if you are in doubt as to whether you need a personal injury attorney is to contact one who will consult with you for free and without any obligation. You can then make an informed decision. The personal injury lawyers at Simeone & Miller, LLP offer free consultations and, if you do not need an attorney, we will advise you of that. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by calling.
Do I have to pay the attorney's fee upfront?
We generally operate on a contingency fee policy - meaning nothing is charged upfront, and you only pay if your case is successful. In other words, if there is no recovery in your case, there will be no charge either.
What damages am I entitled to recover?
In a personal injury case, you are generally entitled to the following damages: (i) past and future medical bills, (ii) past and future lost wages, (iii) compensation for past and future pain, suffering, and inconvenience, (iv) compensation for mental anguish, and (v) compensation for any other expenses proximately caused by the accident or incident that injured you. Every case is different, however, and you may be entitled to other damages as well, including punitive damages, loss of consortium, and damages for emotional distress.
Can my health insurer file a lien against my case?
Very often the terms of your health insurance contract or state or federal law allow for a health insurer to recover its payments to your medical providers from your recovery in a personal injury case. However, this is a complicated area of law and there are several limitations to an insurance company's rights. Moreover, the health insurer is often required to reduce the amount it receives to account for the attorney's fee you paid in your case. There are some insurers who actually have "super liens." These are liens that can be enforced at any time regardless of whether the insurer put you on notice. Some states, including Virginia, have what are known as "anti-subrogation" statutes that limit or prohibit health insurance liens. However, many health insurers claim exemption from this statute under federal laws. Again, this is a complicated area of law and is one of the reasons why having an attorney is a good idea. You could lose your insurance coverage or face a lawsuit if you fail to comply with health insurance lien laws.
How do you determine the value of my claim?
We determine the value of your claim after you have consulted with a medical professional about your injuries. At that point, a physician can forecast your need for future care, the cost and nature of that future care, and the nature and extent of any permanent injury. At this stage, we also have a complete picture of your past medical treatment; lost wages; and the pain, suffering, and inconvenience you suffered and may continue to suffer. All of these factors are used in the valuation of your case. We can review the strengths and weaknesses of your case, consider the effect of the case on you and your life, your comfort with pursuing litigation, verdicts and settlements in similar cases, and our experiences in the jurisdiction in which your case is located. Our pre-litigation team can also bring their input on these matters as we develop our strategy. Based on all of this information, we will arrive at a determination as to the fair value of your case and then consult with you on the ideal course of action toward a good recovery.
Idon't want to go to court. Can you still help me?
Definitely. The vast majority of our clients settle their personal injury cases without having to go to court. So, even if you do not wish to go to court, you can still pursue a claim. Plus, many cases that are filed in court settle outside of court without our clients ever having to step foot in the courtroom.
Should I notify people myself about my intention to file a claim?
It is best practice to keep your intention to file a claim between you and your attorney. It is wise to keep the case between yourself and your lawyer in order to preserve your rights and prevent others from declaring that your claim is unfair. By notifying a personal injury attorney about your case immediately, the chances of receiving a fast and fair resolution will increase. In addition, your lawyer can begin forming a strong and effective claim for your injury.
If I was injured while traveling, what should I do?
If an accident occurred somewhere other than in your home, be sure to locate and photograph any evidence or conditions you believe may have caused or contributed to the accident. You may be surprised to discover something you were not aware of when the accident occurred, but which may help explain what happened: a defect on the spot where you fell, a traffic light that isn't working, or a pertinent object that you previously did not see. Do not break any laws by removing things that do not belong to you, but remember to take photographs before and after removing any physical evidence.
