I received a telephone call recently from someone involved in a motor vehicle accident asking whether they needed a personal injury lawyer. This is one of the most common questions asked after an accident. The decision of whether to retain an attorney or proceed on your own is one of the most important decisions you will make.
All personal injury cases are different. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes. While no two cases are exactly alike, these civil claims fall under the category of “personal injury law” and allows for the injured victim to seek compensation from another person for harm caused by negligence or an intentional act.
If you’ve suffered a serious injury that requires a hospital stay, lost time at work, or experienced long-term health effects, it’s best to retain an attorney. Medical treatment is expensive and insurance companies are notoriously known for being uncooperative.
This is especially true if it isn’t exactly clear who’s at fault for the accident. For example, if the accident involved multiple cars or questionable areas like construction zones, then a liability dispute could arise. Or if the details of the police are contradictory, it can be an easy justification for an insurance company to lower your compensation or deny your claim altogether. If any details conflict, it’s best to let a personal injury lawyer champion your claim.
If that’s the situation then your case can become complicated very quickly. Our attorneys at Carl Brizzi Law, can help resolve the issues. If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident call us today for a free consultation.
Has the accident effected your lifestyle? Are you unable to return to your current job or profession? Have you lost income, missed school, or other activities? Under Indian law, you have the right to seek compensation for all of the financial losses associated with and incurred as the result of the accident.
Even if your injuries are not life threatening or long term, the medical costs associated with treatment can be expensive and it’s your right to seek compensation for those expenses.
In addition to these fixed costs, many personal injuries result in emotional trauma, pain and suffering, or loss of companionship. Indiana allows injury victims to seek compensation for these emotional injuries as well
