It often involves several interested parties in addition to the injured person(s). Because initial medical treatment is likely paid for by your medical insurance company, they will likely want to be reimbursed and if a homeowner’s insurance policy provided coverage, they will be included in the settlement equation as well.
It is important to seek the advice of an experienced attorney to help you evaluate all your options and offers or you could find yourself with very little left to compensate you for your injury, past and future loss.
