Someone else’s bad decisions on the road leave you injured, facing medical bills, time away from work, needing car repair – it is not fair! I agree. I also count my blessings that I am alive. The at fault party should be held responsible.
I’ve been helping the victims of auto collisions recover the compensation they deserve since 1980. Over the years I ‘ve counseled over twenty-thousand clients. Some are hesitant to make a personal injury claim. There are many reasons: they don’t want to be perceived as “someone who sues” or they feel like “accidents happen.”
Filing a lawsuit is the last resort. Claims are made against insurance companies.
Accidents do happen. You knock over the jar of jelly in the store – that was an accident. So you pay for it. So should the person who caused the accident injuring you.
It breaks my heart to hear accident victims say things like this.
We all have an obligation to be safe and attentive drivers. When you’re operating a vehicle, you obey the law and follow the rules of the road. You stop at STOP signs and at red lights, you use your blinker, keep your eyes on the road and maintain a safe speed.
If you fail to follow the rules of the road, you’re breaking the law and endangering yourself and your fellow drivers.
If you’ve been injured because someone else was distracted or is just simply a dangerous driver, you have the legal right to be compensated for all of the harms and losses you suffered. You were following the rules and expecting your fellow drivers to do the same.
Personal injury laws are in place to protect your rights if you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence. Making a claim can help you get your injuries treated by the right medical specialist and can mean you receive full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses.
If you are seriously injured you’ll likely need ongoing medical care and rehabilitation. It could take months or even years before your doctors agree you’ve reached maximum medical improvement. A personal injury claim against the at fault party can pay for your medical care today and your projected medical needs in the future.
A personal injury claim can provide full and fair financial compensation for your pain and suffering, disruption of your life, disfigurement, lost wages, property damage, decreased earning potential and decreased quality of life. This compensation can help alleviate the financial burden an unexpected injury can cause.
