Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim?
The one factor you need to decide when filing a personal injury claim is whether another person’s negligence contributed to your injuries. Negligence happens when the other person didn’t act in a reasonable manner that could have prevented you harm. It can be an action that caused your injuries or a failure to act. A common type of personal injury claim is a car accident. You might have a claim, but it can be hard to tell if you don’t consult with a lawyer first.
Many lawyers offer no-cost consultations where you can simply discuss the case and see if you have a claim for your personal injury. You can also see if they would be a good fit to potentially partner with you as you file your case.
Should I Accept the Offer from My Insurance Company?
Unfortunately, many insurance companies offer low settlements and offer that is not fair for your injuries and pain and suffering. If your injuries will require long-term medical care or will prevent you from earning the same salary you were before the accident, it might be best not to accept the first offer from the insurance company.
If you don’t share whether your offer was fair or not, you can contact an attorney before accepting. They will be able to advise you on if the offer is fair or if you should try to negotiate for more.
You can also consult with your doctor about your long-term injuries and see if they agree with the amount. They might be able to see how much you will spend on medical care in the future and see if the amount is too low.
When Should I Partner with an Attorney After a Personal Injury?’
If you are confused with the proceedings of your personal injury case and aren’t sure what kind of paperwork to file or action to take, you might want to consider partnering with a lawyer. You should also look for a lawyer if you’re confused about the insurance offer or if you aren’t sure whether it’s fair or not.
If you decide to enter into a lawsuit against the other party, a lawyer is almost always required. They can negotiate on your behalf.
