Scott Interviews Nick about what to do after an accident to make sure you can pay the bills. Scott Hi, I’m Scott Bourquin. And I’m here with Nick Mastrangelo. And this is the Mastrangelo minute, one minute to answer a quick question about personal injury and law. And if you need a personal injury attorney,. Nick, I was in an accident and they paid all the bills then, but I’m still hurting. And I can’t work. Is there anything that you can help me with or is there a reasonthat an attorney can help me when I’m calling the insurance company and they keep saying that it’s all paid. Well, yeah, it’s not all paid for because you’re still hurt and you’re entitled to more than just the medical bills that you’ve incurred so far. Nick You’re, you’re entitled to medical bills for treatment that you’re going to need in the future. You’re also entitled to any wages that you’ve lost, even if you’ve usedyour sick or vacation. You are entitled to recover that back. And you’re also entitled to general damages for pain suffering inconvenience, and having to go through the whole process. So it’s not just done because they paid your medical bills. I can help you with that and, and I can help you recover the damages that you’re entitled to the insurance company does not want to give that to you if they can avoid it. So it, itwould be a good idea to call an attorney at that point. Scott So there you have it. With Nick master Angelo, about where you might have the need for an attorney and why Nick? What should they do?  Nick If they need an attorney, they should call me. Thanks, Scott. There you go. Call me.
