Should I File a Personal Injury Accident Claim?
Victims of injuries sustained due to someone else’s negligence may recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages. Our personal injury attorneys will assess your case and advise you on the best course of action to ensure that your rights are protected and you receive the compensation you deserve.
Should I Seek Medical Attention for My Injuries?
After any accident, you should seek medical attention immediately. Documentation that includes medical examinations, X-rays and other diagnostic tests can help to provide evidence of your injuries and support the facts of your claim.
The Insurance Company Offered Me a Settlement. Should I Take It?
Insurance companies are in the business of making money, and will try to compensate you for the least amount possible. Injuries sustained in accidents such as motor vehicle crashes often do not manifest themselves until days or weeks later; and can leave you stuck with costly medical bills down the road.
Whether you are dealing with your own insurance company or the insurer of the negligent party, it is vital to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury accident lawyer. Do not accept a settlement or sign anything without first speaking to a qualified attorney who will protect your rights.
How Much Is My Case Worth?
No two cases are the same, and several factors go into determining the value of a claim. The extent of your injuries, medical expenses, and other damages are all taken into consideration when determining how much your claim is worth. You may be able to recover compensation for:
- Medical Treatment
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
- Loss of Companionship and Consortium
- Property Loss
- Punitive Damages
How Long Will It Take to Settle My Claim?
The vast majority of personal injury accident claims are settled out of court. The length of time it will take to settle your claim depends on the individual circumstances. Some cases take just a few months to settle; others may take years.
