¿Qué son los gravámenes de lesiones personales?

Casi todos y cada uno de los casos de lesiones personales tienen problemas de embargo. Estos gravámenes deben resolverse en el momento de la liquidación para que los fondos de la liquidación se distribuyan adecuadamente a todas las partes. Comprender qué es un gravamen, así como comprender los diversos tipos de gravámenes, es importante si tiene un reclamo por lesiones personales en curso que se resolverá en el futuro.

Los embargos son esencialmente intereses legales afirmados por partes que tienen un interés en el resultado del caso. Por ejemplo, un proveedor de servicios médicos o una compañía de seguros médicos pueden presentar un gravamen contra un acuerdo por lesiones personales. Eso significa que la parte que afirma el gravamen está afirmando un interés legal sobre las ganancias en relación con un acuerdo de caso de lesiones personales. Estos son algunos de los diversos tipos de gravámenes que se imponen contra reclamaciones por lesiones personales.

What are personal injury liens?

Nearly each and every personal injury case has lien issues involved. These liens must be resolved at the time of settlement in order for the settlement funds to be properly distributed to all parties. Understanding what a lien is, as well as understanding the various types of liens, is important if you have an ongoing personal injury claim that will be settling in the future.

Liens are essentially legal interests asserted by parties that have a stake in the outcome of the case. For example, a provider of medical services or a health insurance company may file a lien against a personal injury settlement. That means the party asserting the lien is asserting a legal interest to the proceeds in connection with a personal injury case settlement. Here are some of the various types of liens that are asserted against personal injury claims.

Tres cosas para tener en cuenta al contratar a un abogado de lesiones personales

Tan importante como contratar al abogado adecuado, es igualmente importante evitar contratar al abogado equivocado. Aquí hay algunas cosas que debe tener en cuenta mientras busca el abogado adecuado.

¿Tiene el abogado un historial de recibir quejas éticas?

Published on:

Just as important as it is to hire the right lawyer, it is equally important to avoid hiring the wrong lawyer. Here are some things to look out for as you search for the right lawyer.

1. Does the lawyer have a history of receiving ethical complaints? 

If so, it may be time to look for another lawyer. There is an abundance of lawyers that do not have any disciplinary charges filed against them. Always check out www.massbbo.org to search for an attorney that you are interested in hiring. If he has a spotty disciplinary history, it may be a red flag.

Three Really Important Questions to Ask a Personal Injury Attorney

It is very important to thoroughly research and to be very choosy when selecting which attorney you hire for your personal injury case. Massachusetts has roughly 50,000 practicing attorneys, and many of them handle personal injury cases. Here are some questions to ask any attorney you are considering hiring for your personal injury case.

1.Do you only handle personal injury cases?

Published on:

As I have written in my books entitled, The Truth Series, nearly all personal injury and Worker’s Compensation cases in Massachusetts require a lawyer’s services. But not every case needs legal assistance. For a very small case with very limited medical treatment and clear liability, it may not make economic sense to hire an attorney.

However, for more serious injuries, a lawyer should always be hired. Plus, the attorney does not get paid unless the case settles, and the attorney advances all necessary case expenses. This is called a contingency fee. Nearly every attorney in America handles car accident cases and all other personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. 

Many people wonder if it makes sense to pay a lawyer one-third of the settlement. Studies show that even after the lawyer is paid his or her one-third legal fee, you still will receive more money in your pocket than had you handled the case on your own. Specifically, the Insurance Research Council found that car accident victims, in particular, received a settlement roughly 3.5 times higher than they would have received had they not had an attorney handling their case.

¿Necesito un abogado para mi caso?

Como he escrito en mis libros titulados, The Truth Series, casi todos los casos de lesiones personales y compensación laboral en Massachusetts requieren los servicios de un abogado. Pero no todos los casos necesitan asistencia legal. Para un caso muy pequeño con tratamiento médico muy limitado y responsabilidad clara, puede que no tenga sentido económicamente, contratar a un abogado.

Sin embargo, para lesiones más graves, siempre se debe contratar a un abogado. Además, al abogado no se le paga a menos que el caso se resuelva y el abogado adelante todos los gastos necesarios del caso. Esto se llama tarifa de contingencia. Casi todos los abogados en Estados Unidos manejan casos de accidentes automovilísticos y todos los demás casos de lesiones personales en base a honorarios de contingencia.

¿Debo contratar a un abogado para un accidente automovilístico menor?

Casi todo el mundo en un momento u otro experimentará la desgracia de verse envuelto en un accidente automovilístico. Muchos accidentes automovilísticos, afortunadamente, involucran impactos menores que resultan en muy poco daño a la propiedad de los vehículos involucrados.

Existe la suposición de que un accidente automovilístico menor no causa ni puede causar lesiones personales a los ocupantes del vehículo. Ese es un mito que ha sido desmentido por la ciencia. Es un hecho que incluso una colisión menor de vehículo motorizado puede causar que una persona experimente lesiones personales y, a menudo, lesiones personales muy graves. Muchas personas que experimentan un accidente automovilístico menor desarrollan lentamente el dolor derivado del accidente.

Almost everyone at one time or another will experience the misfortune of being involved in a car accident. Many car accidents, thankfully, involve minor impacts that result in very little, if any, property damage to the involved vehicles.

There is an assumption that a minor car accident does not and cannot cause personal injuries to the occupants of the vehicle. That is a myth that has been debunked by science. It is a fact that even a minor motor vehicle collision can cause an individual to experience personal injuries, and oftentimes, very serious personal injuries. Many people who experience a minor car accident do slowly develop pain stemming from the accident.

Sometimes, this pain can be delayed for days or even weeks, but before you know it, you have neck and or back pain that is not going away. For many people, this type of injury can even get worse and become very significant with time. That is why no matter how the accident happened, and no matter how little property damage was sustained to the vehicles, it is always wise to at least consult with a Boston personal injury lawyer for a free consultation following a minor car accident.
