Calling a personal injury an accident and saying that “accidents happen” does not always capture the effect of the situation. In your case, the accident may not have happened if someone else did what they were supposed to under the circumstances. You have the legal right and ability to act when someone else has harmed you through their carelessness or recklessness.
Personal injury law actually includes a number of different types of cases. It encompasses things like:
Getting the best possible compensation is a matter of doing what you must and not doing anything that could harm your case. The problem is that others see your compensation as something that comes out of their bottom line. The same people who are on the other side of your settlement discussions are the ones who profit if they pay you less. This is a system that can work against the injured if they do not have the right help in the process.
There are two important professionals to contact after an accident. The first priority is getting the medical help that you need to understand the extent of your injuries and treat them. Waiting too long to see a doctor after your injury could hurt your chances of receiving compensation. The insurance company may dispute that your accident actually caused your injury. At the same time, the extent of some injuries is not always apparent right after your accident.
When you need post-accident medical assistance, the doctors at 388CEDA are here to help. Our physicians know the level of detail that insurance companies need to see when they review your documentation. We offer the following medical services:
While you are being treated by our doctors, you should also hire an attorney. There are many reasons why you cannot wait to hire a personal injury lawyer. They include:
You should not just hire any lawyer. Instead, you must find one with the experience and knowledge for your case as not all lawyers are the same. While every lawyer says that they will fight for your legal rights, you need to understand why a lawyer has to fight. If you don’t, the insurance company will walk all over you.
We get that it sounds like an exaggeration, but this is what insurance companies do every day. They do not want to pay you what you deserve because they are in business to make money and not pay claims.
You should expect a negotiation process to settle your claim. Claimants rarely, if ever, receive an initial offer that fairly compensates them for their injuries. Almost every claim will have a back-and-forth that includes offers, rejections, and demand letters.
In most cases, this will result in a settlement. In rare instances, you may have to file a lawsuit and take your case to a jury. As much as the insurance company wants to save money, they also want to avoid a lawsuit because that also costs them money.
All of these are strategic considerations that your lawyer will explain to you. Personal injury claims are about both facts and legal strategy, making your choice of lawyer all the more important. Not everyone should handle your case.
