Accidents happen and are completely unexpected. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury caused in an accident which was someone else's fault, you might be entitled to reimbursement. However, you have to be careful of insurance agents trying to settle your claim. Rarely these are ever fair and if you sign them, there is not a thing you can do later to get the justice you deserve.
Personal Injury Claim
Most insurance companies know that the best time to settle your claim would be at the accident site or just right after it. This is when you are most vulnerable and not thinking clearly. The insurance company agents are extremely good at persuading people that they don't need to file a claim and that if they sign the insurance claim, they will get the best results possible. However, this is far from the truth.
To get the maximum results from your personal injury case, you need to hire a professional personal injury lawyer. It is more than enough that you had to suffer the consequences of your injury, so it's only fair that you get the compensation you deserve.
Now, the question you should be asking yourself is not "should I hire a personal injury lawyer", but rather "which personal injury lawyer should I hire". Also, keep in mind that most people look for a car accident attorney or for a wrongful death attorney.
Personal Injury Law
The definition of a personal injury case is when one person suffers from an injury caused by some other person. The person who caused the accident which caused the injury can be held responsible by law. A personal injury case can become formalized through civil court proceedings that seek to find others legally at fault through a court judgment. Disputes might be resolved through informal settlement before any lawsuits take place:
A formal personal injury case, which is different from criminal cases, typically begins when a person files a civil complaint against another person, business, company, corporation, or government agency. The case will be stating that the responsible party acted carelessly or negligently in regards to a situation that caused an accident, which ended up with the person filing the case being injured. This exact action is called filing for a personal injury lawsuit.
An informal settlement are much more common than formal lawsuits because in reality, most people solve their problems with each other one way or another. Insurers and attorneys can still get involved to ensure their clients' justice. The informal settlement is usually in the form of negotiation between the two parties with a written agreement being the end result, which solves the dispute. The written agreement also states both sides forgo any further action concerning this case.
Aside from the types of personal injury cases, there is also a Statute of Limitations law, which simply states that plaintiffs have a limited time in which to file for a lawsuit. This time begins to countdown the moment the plaintiff gets injured or finds the injury.
The Statute of Limitations is created by state law and varies by injury types. The time span also varies from state to state which is why it is important for you to work with a personal injury attorney who knows all of the state laws where you got injured. Local lawyers will always have the better experience than an outside attorney.
Questions to Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer
You need to be aware of these in order to make the best possible choice in a personal injury attorney:
What is your contingency fee?
Will I be held responsible for any advanced case costs if we lose?
Do you have any experience with this type of personal injury case?
Do you have the necessary time to work on my case right now?
When will the lawsuit be filed?
Will my personal injury case go to trial and when?
What is my personal injury case worth?
Will you be the attorney who will handle my case or are you just doing the consultation?
How will I participate in the personal injury lawsuit?
Will you get me more reimbursements than other personal injury attorneys and why?
