Most accidents are devastating when involving motorized vehicles such as cars or trucks, but a slip and fall incident may also have serious consequences. As such, their effects and severity on victims can be broad. Some injuries can be life-threatening, while others just require minimal medical attention.
Some of the common injuries in personal injury cases are:
The above-mentioned injuries may call for intensive care to help restore you back to your original quality of life.
Even mild injuries arising from someone’s negligence or fault may call for legal assistance. To ensure that adequate evidence is preserved as early as possible, your attorney will need document and investigate all potential causes of the accident which can be used in a court of law. What’s more, the proper party at fault can and should be notified of your need for recovery.
Some injury victims may choose to negotiate with the tortfeasor’s insurance company on their own, and in some cases this may be appropriate. For very mild injuries that only require a session or two of medical treatment by a primary case doctor, we advise our potential clients to handle the case without an attorney. However, majority of insurers refuse to offer reasonable settlements when a party is representing themselves. Should this be the case, you may end up accepting an offer that is far below the average settlement for a similar case. But with the competent legal assistance of a local personal injury attorney, you can rest assured that you will receive a fair offer or have your day in court.
When you are injured in an accident, you have the right to pursue just and fair compensation in court. However, there comes a time when victims find themselves at stalemates with the insurance company and do not know how and when to file a claim in the appropriate court. There are laws in our area that apply to how and when you may file a claim, and failure to follow them may result in the dismissal of your case.
If this is the case, you can easily and conveniently delegate these duties to your attorney to make sure that your claim is fairly heard in front of a judge or jury. He or she will make sure that you follow the necessary state and local rules and present the proper evidence to the court.
Our Pearland personal injury lawyers have the skill and experience necessary to receive just compensation from the insurance company. This may be through an out of court settlement, or if necessary, through trial. Our team can gather and present all appropriate sources of evidence to help your case. If you have been involved in an accident likely resulting from someone else’s negligence, please call our office for a free consultation.
