Personal Injury Claims
Whether to file a personal injury claim or not is typically a personal decision. For most, the choice is a no-brainer. With medical bills piling up and possible property damage to contend with, few have the financial capability to withstand an accident. You’re confused, stressed, and at your wit’s end. It’s okay, though. You’re not alone. Countless individuals file personal injury claims every year. They’re one of the most common complaints in the world.
When you need to file a personal injury claim, your first step should be to speak with an experienced attorney. You’ll want someone who understands the intricacies of insurance claims. Someone who has dealt with companies and adjusters in the past. We’ll see to your case and ensure you’re on the correct path to a settlement that is worth your time. An agreement should cover all your expenses, including medical and property.
Personal Injury Process
While accident and injury lawsuits vary widely, the primary stages remain consistent. First and foremost, seek out medical attention. Chances are you’ve sustained some injury during your accident. Whether you’re in intense pain or not, it is crucial that you seek the assistance of a licensed physician. Once that’s done, it’s time to handle the legal and insurance side of an incident. These portions of personal injury lawsuits are often confusing and stressful. However, you aren’t alone. We are happy to help.
You’ll want to schedule a consultation meeting with our office. We’ll sit down and discuss your case, consider every facet of your accident, and find a viable financial solution. Should a settlement be agreed upon, you’ll have monetary compensation to handle your medical bills and loss of working hours. If not, we’ll take the case to court to get the compensation you deserve.
Personal Injury Settlement
If you’ve ever been injured due to negligence or the intentional act of another individual or company, then you know the pain and suffering involved. Chances are if you’ve been injured, your medical bills are piling up. Healthcare is not cheap. It’s easy to become overwhelmed with doctor’s orders and bills arriving in the mail. Not to mention, it can be frustrating dealing with the financial consequences of property damage to your vehicle and the loss of work hours. It’s an expensive injury.
Often, individuals involved in personal injury cases choose to settle out of court. The defendant is more than happy to pay a sum and avoid a courthouse. At least, the insurance companies are. This settlement can vary in amount, though. It’s almost impossible to estimate the amount you’ll receive. You’re offered enough to cover all medical bills, personal property damage, and loss of work hours. Chances are you’ll receive extra for pain and suffering, too.
Fair Settlements for Personal Injuries
Between insurance companies, adjusters and other attorneys, you may feel pressured to accept the initial offer. But you should be aware that these parties are often only interested in mitigating costs, not in fairly compensating you for your injury. Oftentimes the compensation is well below what the injury has cost you in medical bills and lost wages. That is why you need a personal injury attorney to fight for a fair personal injury settlement.
Fair compensation for personal injury settlements include:
- The full payment of all medical expenses
- Payment for your economic losses, such as lost wages
- Compensation payment for your pain and suffering
Our personal injury attorneys are often able to win settlements larger than the insurance company was initially willing to pay. They do this through:
- Strategic legal planning
- Deep and thorough investigations
- Innovative technological presentations
- Access to specialists and expert witnesses
