Some accident-related injuries are minor and can be easily paid for by the insurance company. However, other injuries may cause loss of valuable skills or abilities that, while not life-threatening, will change the course of your life forever.
If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident, chances are you’ll have at least some of the following:
- Hospital and doctor bills.
- Loss of time and pay from work.
- Emotional distress.
- Inconvenience.If the accident wasn’t your fault, you may be able to collect a financial sum for the money and time spent (and lost) on recovery.
While you are free to negotiate with insurance companies yourself if you wish, you are likely to have better luck with the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
You will likely get a higher settlement with a professional than if you brave the courts yourself. Tort laws in this country are a labyrinth of nuance and precedents, and a professional knows the system well.
