Following a serious injury accident, it can be easy to ignore the obvious signs that you need to hire a lawyer. You’re recovering from your injuries, you’re focused on getting back on track, do you really need to pursue compensation for medical bills and other expenses covered by your insurance?
Is your well-being important to you? Then listen up.
You may have been pushed around before, but when it comes to your emotional, physical, and financial well-being following a serious injury, you’ve got rights. If someone else can be held legally responsible for your injuries and the pain and suffering you’ve endured, you deserve to receive that compensation, just like anyone else.
When big business fails to keep their consumers safe, they get sued. When drivers cause car accidents, their insurance companies get sued. This is how our justice system works for those who have been injured due to negligence. No one is going to say they’re sorry, but they can be ordered to pay for the expenses you’ve been forced to endure.
If you do not pursue your claim for damages, the only people that suffer are you and your family, and you may be putting your future at risk.
Those who suffer injuries that require compensation must be injured enough for the injuries to negatively impact their lives. For the vast majority of victims, this means life-threatening situations that result in thousands of dollars in medical expenses, at the very least. Most victims do not want to sue, but are forced to because of their inability to obtain proper treatment without being compensated.
Many people believe that insurance companies are their friends, a fantasy that becomes painfully clear once an insurance provider fails to provide you with the money you need to obtain treatment. Most people have to ask themselves, do I want to end up with a lifetime of debt? You may not want to pursue a claim, but you probably can’t afford to avoid it.
While no two cases are the same, experienced injury attorneys go through similar experiences with the same insurance companies over and over. You can count on a great lawyer to be able to let you know, generally, what you can expect.
A settlement or award as a result of a claim for damages does not just provide compensation for accrued medical expenses. Many of those who suffer injuries are able to obtain compensation for the pain and suffering that they endured. An experienced attorney will know how to assess what reasonable damages are in order to get you the largest amount that you deserve.
Do you know how much your suffering is worth in a court of law? For most, no dollar amount would be enough to right the wrongs endured. You need knowledge of the law in your state to know what award amounts are deemed acceptable. While an attorney cannot tell you exactly how much you will receive, they can negotiate agreeable terms with the responsible insurance company, and pursue a judgment in court if they refuse to provide adequate compensation.
Lost wages, depression, and other damages resulting from your injuries can likely be compensated for. Without a skilled attorney, you won’t be able to properly evaluate what costs can be compensated and for how much.
Do you not think that those who are negligent in causing harm to someone else should take responsibility for their actions? Should these people and businesses be held accountable for the damage they have caused? Many injured parties like you merely want the party responsible to acknowledge that they are responsible. The best way to accomplish this is by taking them to court.
You may be primarily interested in getting your medical bills paid, and making sure you are compensated for the suffering you’ve been forced to endure. However, having the party that is responsible for your injuries publicly accept responsibility for their wrongdoing, and possibly do something to prevent the same situation from happening to someone else, can have a positive impact on thousands of other people.
