If you’ve been injured, you’re probably asking yourself when you should call a personal injury attorney or if you should even bother. If you have an injury that’s serious, you should call an attorney. There is no reason to sit back and accept that your injuries are your new reality when there are so many options available to you. Here’s what you need to know if you’ve been injured and you don’t know if you should call an attorney.
Injuries Have Long-Term Consequences
If your accident caused an injury like a broken toe and nothing else, you needn’t really call a personal injury attorney. This type of injury heals quickly and relatively efficiently without requiring multiple visits to the doctor or hospital. The medical bills are minimal, and there are no surgeries involved in a minor injury such as this.
However, if your injuries are serious, they could have long-term consequences. Not only are you injured right now, you might be suffering from many problems you didn’t have prior to your accident. Did you have to spend time out of work because of your injuries? Did you lose out on income because you were not at work? Are you able to go back to work in the same capacity you were before your accident?
Some people’s injuries are so serious they’re unable to return to work doing what they did before if they are able to return to work at all. This means you might not just lose your income earning potential, you might lose your income as a whole. You also have medical bills piling up around you with injuries this serious. This financial setback doesn’t go away after time. You’re now saddled with medical bills from the accident, future medical bills for any therapy, checkups, and surgeries your new injury might require, and you don’t have a job or one that pays the same as the job you had before.
Financial Difficulties Are Not Your Problem
The good news is you aren’t saddled with these financial problems for the rest of your life if the accident was not your fault. If you were injured in an accident that was caused by someone else when they were negligent in any way, you could file a personal injury lawsuit to seek damages from their insurance company that will allow you to pay off your medical bills and live without your prior income. Damages in a personal injury lawsuit can include any of the following:
– Medical bills
– Pain and suffering
– Future medical bills
– Loss of consortium
– Loss of income
– Diminished earning potential
– Wrongful death
If you’re injured in an accident, you have new financial issues to deal with. You’re not required to face this problem alone if someone else is to blame for your injuries. You didn’t ask for your injuries. You didn’t ask for someone to hit you with their car or injure you at work, and you are legally entitled to ask them to pay for the damage they’ve caused.
Call an attorney if you’ve been injured in any type of accident. If the injury is serious, you have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit. An attorney can help you fight this case, prove you were innocent and someone else was negligent, and they can guide you through the process of filing paperwork and working with the insurance companies. You have better things to do with your time than deal with the stress of handling all of this and your regular life as it stands.
