During the month of June, I am addressing common questions that get asked in our practice. Today’s Question is: Who will find out about my case?
That question depends on a lot of different things. If your case ended up going to trial, it would be out in the open and anybody who did an internet search or went to the courthouse, could find out that you had a case. But before the case is actually filed, there are very few people who are involved. The defendant usually finds out about the case when they receive our initial letter. This does not need to be done if we know who the insurance company is already. The adjuster for the case will know what is going on, along with their supervisor most likely, but the reality is that you are just one of many. Some Insurance companies will register claims with the Chicago Index. Our law firm does not talk about our individual cases with anyone other than the people who you authorize us to speak to. The individuals you see as part of your care will also know things regarding your case. If you have any concerns about privacy, you should bring up those issues at your initial consultation. It is not unusual to have a client who requests certain personal issues not be disclosed unless absolutely necessary.
These questions are not intended to replace a consultation with an attorney, nor do they take into consideration facts that may differ about your particular case. Here at the Injuryboard, we have experienced attorneys who can deal with your individual questions and best help you with your case. Feel free to get the help you need by contacting one of us.
