Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I know if I have a good case?

This requires a firm understanding of the law as well as some knowledge of the previous rulings within the relevant jurisdiction - which typically requires the assistance of an attorney

What are economic vs. non-economic damages?

Damages are split into two compensatory models: economic and non-economic. Economic damages are tangible losses that have been documented. They take the form of medical bills, follow-up treatments, lost wages, prescription costs, etc. Non-economic damages, however, are more abstract in nature. These are damages that cannot be easily documented or verified. Pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, disfigurement, loss of consortium constitute certain types of non-economic damages. Economic damages are typically looked upon more favorably by juries as they are more readily verifiable and less subjective than non-economic damages. William Sanders Law, however, has vast experience in helping injured individuals obtain non-economic damages by spending the time necessary to reflect on losses sustained and presenting that as a digestible narrative that juries appreciate

Who pays for my bills following an automobile accident?

Ideally, we want the insurance company of the individual who caused the automobile accident to be responsible for your medical bills. Unless fault is clearly established at the outset of the matter, insurance companies usually will not provide payment immediately. Even when fault is clearly established, insurance companies tend to delay payment while they evaluate their options. It's therefore necessary that you put the costs of medical treatment on your insurance to ensure that you don't have a larger medical bill than necessary so that you can maximize your recovery amount

How do you determine the value of my case?

Case values range according to a number of factors, including the severity of the accident, the property damages to the vehicles and/or equipment involved, how long you waited to seek treatment for your injury(ies), how long you were forced to miss work, your age and other relevant considerations. To add some hue, consider the case of a 75-year-old involved in a seemingly minor vehicle collision compared to a 30-year-old involved in the same, seemingly minor vehicle collision. The healing time of the 75-year-old is going to be longer, and this individual would be more susceptible to substantial injury due to the natural degeneration of the body that occurs over time compared to the 30-year-old. Lastly, many times case values depend on the nature of the policy limits of the at-fault driver. If the policy only allows for a maximum recovery of $30,000.00, then the practical value of your case is $30,000.00

Can I bring a suit for mental anguish?

Mental anguish is a form of non-economic damages that may be sought pursuant to certain causes of action. Consider the difficulty, however, that comes with bringing a lawsuit in which the only, or primary, form of damages is mental anguish. Typically, juries view non-economic damages dubiously as they are not easily verifiable. There are some instances in which mental anguish claims are more verifiable, such as when an individual obtains psychological treatment as the result of an event which causes mental trauma. Absent this, however, mental anguish claims are largely dependent on the narration ability of the plaintiff

Should I call the police after a motor vehicle accident?

Not if you were at fault for the accident, and not if you have illegal substances inside your vehicle or warrants. Assuming your ducks are in a row, police reports must be made within a short time period following police investigation of the accident scene. This is beneficial for the driver who is not at-fault as the investigating officer is typically asked to provide his/her opinion as to who was at-fault for the accident, an opinion which a jury can rely on at trial to make a more informed decision
