Have you been injured due to reckless or negligent actions of another person or entity? If so, you may have a personal injury case on your hands. Whether you are dealing with medical malpractice, a dog bite, a slip and fall injury, or even a car accident related injury, it is highly recommended that you consult with an attorney to explore your options.
Injuries can lead to medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other difficult obstacles. When you work with a personal injury lawyer they will advocate for your best interests, help you cover the costs of your medical expenses, and even communicate with insurance companies on your behalf. Our law firm offers free consultations to help you understand and explore your options after being injured in an accident.
When You Might Consider Hiring A Lawyer
The insurance company you are making the claim against will have attorneys representing and fighting for them. Lawyers are professionals who spend years and countless hours studying the particulars of the law and gathering knowledge to represent their clients to the best of their abilities. If the insurance company or the party you are taking to Small Claims Court has legal representation, it may be something for you to consider as well.
Your Injuries May Not Be As Minor As You Thought
Many people are reluctant to hire a lawyer for injuries that seem relatively minor. For example, if you get into a car accident and you bruise your arm and suffer a few scrapes, you may not feel it is worthwhile to hire a personally injury attorney. And if the other driver’s insurance company makes you an offer to pay your medical bills and give you a few hundred dollars extra on top of that, it may not be worth the hassle of finding legal representation.
But there are a few reasons why you might consider making a phone call or scheduling an initial consultation with a lawyer, even for seemingly minor injuries.
Minor Injuries May Turn into Major Ones.
If your injuries turn out to be worse than you and your doctor thought, and you have already accepted a settlement offer, there will be nothing you can do about it since you must give up any and all future claims arising out of the accident when you settle. A good lawyer will advise you to wait until you know the full extent of your injuries, and would help you to determine the right time to accept an offer.
You’re Entitled to “Pain and Suffering” Damages.
Pain and suffering and emotional distress damages would be considered by a jury if your case went to court, and so a settlement that doesn’t include these types of damages might not be a complete one. Your lawyer can explain all damages you may be entitled to, even for injuries that seem minor, and will advocate on your behalf to make sure you receive a satisfactory settlement.
Maximize Your Compensation After Injury
Even if you have a decent understanding of what your personal injury settlement might be worth, you will be unfamiliar with the legal procedures involved with litigating or mediating your personal injury claim. This includes not being aware which legal documents you need, how to properly fill out or file these forms, and the applicable statute of limitations for each.
The gap in your legal knowledge may allow the insurance companies to beat you on a legal technicality. There is no worse feeling than knowing that you missed out on thousands of dollars from your insurance settlement, simply because you did not follow the steps outlined by the court system.
Our team can help you navigate your personal injury lawsuit in order to maximize your compensation. We understand how difficult it can be following an accident to get back on your feet, this is why we work with you to ensure all of your financial needs are being taken into consideration.
We want to help you cover your immediate financial needs, while also considering any future problems or needs you will have. For instance, if your injury requires long term physical therapy or has lasting impacts that make it difficult to continue working in the same industry you currently do.
