It is your right when injured in an accident to pursue any compensation that is owed from the at-fault parties. No matter the claim and injuries, it’s always best to hire a personal injury attorney who can help navigate the post-accident experience.
If you’ve been injured in an accident contact The Haymond Law Firm.
Reporting the accident and seeking medical attention are the first things you should do. It’s wise to contact a personal injury lawyer after immediate medical attention has been given.
People often think that they’re not injured after an accident takes place. It is common to find out a later date that an internal injury has occurred. Regardless of whether you think you are injured or not, make sure you get checked out by a doctor after being in a vehicular accident.
Costs related to injuries from the accident
You must have received injury as a result of someone else’s negligence to file a valid personal injury claim. Two common entities that are sued after a car accident or motorcycle accident are the other driver or the manufacturer(s) of the motor vehicles involved.
Don’t be misled into thinking that the only thing you can sue for is medical expenses. A personal injury attorney can help you sue for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Exemplary damages
- Physical impairment
- Loss of wages
- Reduced earning capacity
At fault in an accident does not automatically mean no compensation
If the accident is ruled as partly your fault, you still may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. The best way to determine if you should pursue a personal injury claim is by speaking with a professional personal injury lawyer.
