In March, Attorney Todd Henningsen of Henningsen Injury Attorneys P.C.
spent some time speaking with Emory Mulling of Mulling at Work on
Newstalk 1160 Atlanta. Attorney Henningsen was asked about the difference between typical
personal injury claims and workers’ compensation claims including
the losses in productivity for workplace injuries and the overall costs
Attorney Henningsen also spoke to the different types of car insurance
including liability insurance, which he contended was insufficient for
the average driver, recommending Georgia drivers double their current
amount of coverage to protect them when at-fault in an accident. He also
expounded on the need for uninsured motorists coverage. Finally, he opined
on the need for medical expense coverage which can be as little as $5,000
and can pay for trips to the doctor for an accident. Disability insurance
can provide extra income if injured and you have no income.
Asked about what trends in personal injury law he was seeing, Attorney
Todd Henningsen remarked on the rise of subrogation whereby health insurers
pursue a third party which caused an insurance loss as a way to recover
the amount of the claim paid to the insured for the loss.
He was honest in responding to Emory when asked how long an average injury
case takes, saying if a case does not go to trial, a case can take months
to resolve, and potentially years if litigation is needed. This is all
time, Attorney Henningsen quipped, that clients are living essentially
out of pocket.
