Do not Settle Your Personal Injury Claim Before Speaking to an Attorney
You are entitled to full and fair compensation if another person or company’s negligent actions resulted in injury, death, or property damage.
When another party is at fault, often their insurance company will immediately contact you to secure a release before you can talk to a personal injury attorney.
Do not sign anything and do not make any statements about the incident until you have retained counsel. Insurance companies are not there to help you and they are not acting in your best interest. Their interest is to preserve their bottom line and minimize their own exposure often at the expense of people who have been injured and who they are obligated to compensate.
Personal Injury Damages
In any type of accident, people can suffer a wide range of injuries some that are immediately apparent and some that may not appear immediately.
Physical injuries that accident victims suffer include fractures, injury to internal organs, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, neck injuries, and back injuries. Some accident victims will require extensive and expensive medical care such as ER visits, hospital stays, surgeries, rehabilitation, medical equipment, and long term care if the person is disabled. Many people are unable to work during their recovery from an accident, forcing them to lose their source of income, and their future earning capacity may be reduced because of the injuries.
Full compensation means payment for monetary loss that has already happened such as hospital visits, medical care, or property damage, but it also means payment for future losses such as long term care and complications that may arise because of the injuries. Full compensation also includes noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering and mental anguish, and it may also include compensation for your spouse. In cases of intentional conduct or gross negligence on the part of the at-fault party, punitive damages may also be awarded.
Determining how much the at-fault party owes you requires an in-depth review of the facts of your case and the applicable law. Even after proving liability, you will have to prove each element of the damages to which you are entitled before you can collect full compensation. Insurance companies will sometimes deny liability and attempt to not pay your claim at all. Even when liability is clear, they will still do everything possible to devalue your damages and pay you the least amount possible.
