The law allows you compensation when someone else caused your injuries in an accident. First, you must prove that the other person was negligent. The legal definition of this term does not allow for any speculation. Instead, you must show four things:
While this is the test, there is much that must happen between your injury and financial compensation. Essentially, you need the evidence that takes your side of the story from something that you say to something that you can prove. The average person may not have the time or skill to gather the evidence necessary, especially when they are dealing with accident injuries. You may need the following to prove your case:
A personal injury lawyer can get to work in assembling the evidence that you need to file a claim or a lawsuit. Some of this evidence can be lost if you do not act quickly after your accident. However, many people are unable to do things on their own, and they may not be in the best position to investigate their own accident.
Most personal injury claims involve filing a claim with the insurance company. This is where things can get difficult. Never assume that you will simply receive the amount that you deserve by just asking for it. This is not how insurance companies do business. Instead, they make you reject lowball offers and turn around and demand what you deserve. This is an age-old game, and they expect you to have an attorney on your side. If they see that you do not, they will try to economize on your payout.
Your best hope is that you can reach a settlement with the insurance company that fairly compensates you for your injuries. If that is not possible, you may need to file a lawsuit in court. The legal process can be complicated, and insurance companies have lawyers at the ready to try to defeat your case.
This is why you need an experienced attorney to fight for you. The personal injury litigation process can take years to work through as your case makes its way to trial. Along the way, there are numerous filings and things like depositions that you need to help advance your case.
Of course, it is not a guarantee that your case goes to trial. Most personal injury actions will settle without a court hearing. However, you should always be prepared for the worst, and this means lining up the legal assistance that your personal injury case requires.
One thing that is almost always an issue in these cases is the extent to which you have been injured. The insurance company has every incentive to downplay your damages because it means that they pay less money.
It is extremely important to seek medical attention as soon as you can after an accident. Not doing so may allow your injuries to worsen, pain to increase, and recovery time to lengthen.
