Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you have suffered injuries in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be in need of a personal injury lawyer. Dog bites, motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall cases, medical malpractice claims, and defective product injuries may all require the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer if you hope to receive compensation for your injuries.
Determine Fault in Your Accident
By working with a skilled personal injury attorney, you can be sure that every detail of your accident will be examined by a legal professional to properly establish blame for your injuries. Any number of individuals can be named as defendants in your claim.
Motor vehicle accidents can hold drivers, parts manufacturers, and even local government agencies responsible, while product liability claims can affect almost any person or company involved in the distribution of the defective product that injured you.
In any type of accident, it is crucial that we determine who is liable for your injuries so we can obtain the full compensation you deserve from the negligent party.
Collect Damages for Your Injuries
After we’ve established fault in your case, we can begin the process of calculating how much your claim is worth. We usually consider the effects of both economic and non-economic damages in our computation of a reasonable compensation request.
Economic damages include all of those that affect you financially, such as any loss of income, lost earning potential, and medical expenses stemming from your injuries. Your non-economic losses will be all of those not tied directly to money, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, or loss of companionship.
The assistance of a personal injury lawyer can help guarantee that the total impact of your injuries is included in your claim so you aren’t stuck with unexpected costs as a result of your injuries long after your personal injury claim has been settled.
