If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s fault, you likely want to be reimbursed for your injuries. Whether you are in a car accident, suffer a sports injury, or slip and fall in a public place, you are probably facing some amount of medical bills and other financial losses and want to know who will pay for these. The general answer to this question is sometimes not very satisfying, because the answer is: it depends.

In order to answer all of these questions, it is important that you seek help from an experienced personal injury attorney in Fayette County as soon as possible after your accident.
The amount you can recover depends on many factors. These include:
- What type of injury did you receive? What kind of medical bills do you have? Did you injury require emergency services, surgery, extended hospital stays, follow up visits to doctors or specialists, physical therapy or other types of rehabilitation?
- Did you have to miss work because of your injury? If so, for how long? What amount of wages, benefits, or other compensation did you miss out on as a result of your accident and injury?
- What was the nature of the accident and specific cause of the injury? Was it a car accident, a premises liability case like a slip and fall, an injury at work?
- Who was at fault? Were you partially at fault or was the accident a direct cause of someone else’s negligence? Was the accident preventable?
