MRI’s On Personal Injury Cases, The Double Edged Sword

When ordering a MRI on a personal injury case increases the value of the case.

The general rule for personal injury cases is, the higher the medical expenses, the higher the settlement amount of the claim. This, however, is not always the case. One of the most common diagnostic tests performed on someone following a personal injury is a MRI (which stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging).

Not All Cases Are Created Equal

Similar cases settling for different amounts of money

Often times when I am trying to settle a case for a client, the client will say, “my friend had a case just like mine and his case settled for more money than my case.” And my answer is always, “no he didn’t.” This is simply because no two cases are exactly the same. 

Premature Denial Letters From Insurance Companies

Sometimes, insurance companies will send denial letters to clients and attorneys without having all the necessary facts regarding an accident. My general rule of thumb about these letters is that if I receive a denial letter before I receive the police report, chances are that the denial is premature.

Information Your Lawyer Needs For New Cases/Clients

Case Intake Information You Provide Your Attorney

When taking in a Personal Injury or Workers’ Compensation case, I find that it is very important to get as much information up front as possible which will help in the management of the case for its duration.  Little things such as a social security number, spouses name will come into play especially when it comes time for settlement as all insurance companies require these pieces of information before releasing a settlement check.

If you get pulled over for speeding or for any other moving violation, and are given a ticket, what should you do? Many people think that they should just pay the ticket and send it in. This is not your best move. If you do that, the ticket goes on your record as a conviction. What does this mean?
