Before you can settle on an accident of negligence, you should contract a personal injury attorney or legal advisor. You’ll initially need to comprehend what individual damage case is. The vast majority believe that an individual damage guarantee is an auto or engine vehicle mischance assert. While damage managed in a car crash where another was to blame would be individual damage guarantee. Often, there are numerous different issues that additionally fall under that heading.
A personal injury attorney handles matters where there has been a personal injury, either physical or emotional. These incidents are generally caused by the negligence of another. If there was no negligence then there is no case. There must be negligence, whether intentional or unintentional, on the part of another, for a claim to be valid. Additionally, there are other variables that could come into play. You would need to seek the advice of a good personal injury attorney, in order to determine your rights.
Sometimes there are matters other than car accident matters that can many times be included under personal injury. From slips and falls, to workplace accidents (after a workplace accident you may be covered under workers compensation or disability but you may also have a personal injury claim). Or injuries caused during a storm or power outage, airplane, bus and train crashes. Plus, construction accidents, fires, food poisoning, drug or vitamin overdoses. You can also experience animal bites, getting beat up, robbed or otherwise injured inside or outside of a business, medical malpractice and even malpractice by an attorney.
How can a Personal Injury Attorney Help You?
There are many variables that can come into play in determining negligence. Many times you may think that there was no negligence on the part of anyone when there actually was. I myself, know of a case where a party was struck by a car while riding a motorcycle and injured severely. He settled with the driver and the driver’s insurance company for the $100,000.00 maximum of the driver’s insurance policy. This settlement did not even begin to cover his medical bills.
Some time later, a personal injury attorney, while speaking with a member of the injured party’s family, found about the case and was asked to look into it for the family. The injured party was broke and paralyzed. The attorney did some research. He learned that even though the man had accepted the settlement, there might still be a case. He then hired my detective agency and another to do further research.
Finally, he filed a law suit against the car driver, the drivers insurance company, the motorcycle manufacturer and others. I won’t go into the whole case, but suffice it to say that he went to trial and ended up obtaining a verdict against several of the parties, including the drivers insurance company and the motorcycle manufacturer, for several million dollars and the injured party is no longer broke.
If you have been injured, you should seek the advice of a competent personal injury attorney even if you don’t think that there is anyone at fault. Only a good experienced personal injury attorney can attempt to make that determination.
