FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I handle my own case?
Can you? Yes. Should you? Probably not. Most people are not as skilled in the law and negotiating with insurance companies and therefore cannot get maximum value for their case.
What will Josh Jones Law, P.A. do for me?
Attorney Josh Jones personally handles every case that comes through the door. Along with his team of skilled investigators and paralegals, he will: 

  • Request your medical records
  • Communicate with all parties including insurance companies and doctors
  • Send a demand letter to the insurance company or defendant
  • Negotiate with the insurance company or defendant until they make an offer that is acceptable to you
  • Attempt to negotiate unpaid medical bills
  • Possibly file a lawsuit if a settlement cannot be made
How much is my case worth?
There are no guarantees that you will receive a certain dollar amount, however we will work hard to get you the best possible settlement for your injuries. This is determined by:

  • Seriousness of your injuries
  • How long you received medical treatment
  • The amount of your medical bills
  • If your ability to earn a living is reduced
  • The insurance limits of the person who caused your injuries
  • Possibly file a lawsuit if a settlement cannot be made
  • If the employer of the person who caused your injuries is also responsible
How long will my case take?
Josh Jones Law will do our best to handle your case as quickly as possible but there are no guarantees of a specific timetable. Most cases take about 12-18 months. Though it is not likely that your case will go to trial, if it does, this will affect the length of your case. Other issues that can delay your case include:

  • How long your medical treatment lasts
  • Large hospital or medical bills that need to be reduced
  • Clients not communicating with the attorney
Will my case go to trial?
Most cases settle without going to trial. But sometimes it may be necessary to file a lawsuit in order to get the best result for a client. If we believe your case falls into this category, we will explain your options and make a recommendation so that you can make an informed decision regarding what direction to go with your case.
Who pays for my doctors?
Your health insurance may pay some or all of your medical bills. If you were in a car accident, PIP insurance may also pay some of your bills. For any left over bills, we will do our best to negotiate them so they can be paid with a part of your settlement. If we succeed, you will not owe your doctors money.
What is Personal Injury Protection (PIP)?
PIP is insurance that is used to cover medical bills and lost wages if you are in a car accident or hit by a car. If you own a car in Florida, you must purchase PIP – also known as ‘No Fault Insurance.’ You are entitled to PIP even if you were at fault in the accident.
How much will PIP pay?
PIP insurance pays up to $10,000 for the following:

  • 80% of each medically necessary medical bill
  • 60% of lost wages
  • 100% of replacement services such as childcare, housekeeping and yard work
  • Up to $5,000 in death benefits
  • 80% of prescription expenses
  • Mileage Rembursement
*There may also be a deductible
