Do I Have A Personal Injury Case?
Every situation is different and has a unique set of circumstances. Generally speaking, you must be able to prove both liability and negligence for a personal injury lawsuit. A personal injury attorney evaluates your case to determine whether it satisfies the basic legal requirements. If another person is responsible for the accident the next thing to consider is negligence. Negligence may be an action, or lack of action, that resulted in the accident and injury. Any time an injury has occurred it is helpful to immediately consult with a personal injury attorney to discuss the details of the accident.
First Steps in a Personal Injury Case
The first step in a personal injury case is to speak with a qualified personal injury attorney. Your personal injury attorney will discuss the details of your situation to determine what options are available to you. While not all accidents qualify for lawsuits, many do. It is essential that you talk to your personal injury attorney before you speak with the insurance company. As expected, many times an insurance company will want to settle the case as quickly as possible for as little compensation as possible. This could leave you without the funds you need to handle the expenses associated with the injury.
Compensation for Personal Injuries
A serious injury can cost thousands of dollars in medical expenses and may need to include ongoing care. You and your family may need to be compensated if the injuries were due to negligence on the part of another. Some of the compensation you may receive includes:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Future Treatments
- Funeral Costs
Remember that you and your loved ones deserve the money to pay for the expenses, pain and suffering, and other costs that have occurred as a result of the injury. A reputable personal injury attorney will help assess your case to determine how to proceed.
Negotiating a Settlement
Surprisingly, most personal injury cases are settled before they get to court. This happens for a number of reasons. It is typically in the best interest of both parties to resolve the case as quickly as possible. Going to court may take much longer than you may like. Additionally, many companies and others prefer to settle the case in order to prevent negative publicity. On this basis it may be in your best interest to hire a personal injury attorney with a strong negotiation background to get top results. Negotiation of a fair and equitable settlement is the responsibility of your personal injury attorney.
What to Do After an Injury
Accidents occur quickly and without warning. The first and most important thing to do is seek proper medical attention. The injuries may have an impact on the injured person as well as the entire family. Contact a personal injury attorney as soon as it is reasonably possible to do so. The sooner you seek legal help the better your personal injury attorney will be able to help you. When possible, do not make any statements to police, insurance agents, or other attorneys until you first talk to your own personal injury attorney. Remember that there are time restrictions that limit how long you have to file a lawsuit. It is always best to talk to a personal injury attorney as quickly as possible after the injury occurred.
Seek Help from an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney
A skilled personal injury attorney takes immediate steps to resolve your case. Your personal injury attorney will interview you as well as any witnesses to the incident. If a police report was filed, this will be reviewed. Other steps may be taken to obtain important details. For example, if the case involved a vehicle accident, a reconstruction team may be required to provide precise details. When a slip and fall accident has happened, your personal injury attorney may visit the location where it happened to take pictures and measurements. If surveillance cameras are located in the area they may be reviewed. All data regarding your case will be located and analyzed by your personal injury attorney to ensure the best possible outcome.
