It’s not unusual for personal injury victims to have questions after sustaining injuries in an accident. That’s because most people don’t think about how injury cases work until they need to bring a claim. Unfortunately, this may mean there are some misconceptions about injury cases. We’ve found the following questions to be among the most common. Read on to learn more about what happens in an injury case, and how a personal injury attorney can help. If you’d like more info, feel free to visit EAPDLaw, a Los Angeles personal injury law firm.
Am I At Fault?
The first thing you should know is that a personal injury claim isn’t necessarily about fault. If you are injured, it doesn’t matter who was at fault. If someone else caused your injuries, they are liable for damages. This means that even if you were partially at fault for the accident, they still may be required to pay compensation for your injuries and losses.
How Do I Know If My Injuries Are Serious?
Personal injury claims only cover physical injuries that are serious enough to warrant compensation. You must have sustained an injury serious enough to require medical treatment or medication, or to impact your job performance or ability to work in some way. Whether the injury is deemed serious will depend on where you live and your doctor’s opinion regarding the severity of your injuries. A personal injury attorney will discuss this with you during a free consultation so you can know whether or not you have a viable claim before moving forward with any legal action against the negligent party responsible for causing your injuries.
How Are Accidents Investigated?
After a personal injury accident, the police will investigate it and determine who was at fault. Then, the other driver’s insurance company will pay for his or her medical bills. This is an easy process if you were involved in a car accident, but other accidents may prove more difficult to investigate. However, there are still ways to determine fault in these cases. For example, if you were injured when someone’s dog attacked you, there will be records of the dog’s vaccination records and behavior. Similarly, if you were injured by someone else’s property – such as a construction area – witnesses may be able to show how the accident occurred and who was at fault.
What Is The Role Of An Attorney In Injury Cases?
Personal injury attorneys help their clients seek compensation for their injuries after an accident has been settled. This helps ensure that the client receives the full amount they deserve for their injuries – including lost wages and emotional damages caused by the incident. An attorney can help clients go over all documents pertaining to their case so that they can make informed decisions about how they should proceed with their claim. They can also negotiate with insurance companies on behalf of their clients while guiding them through any legal issues that arise during litigation or settlement discussions. Finally, an attorney can provide guidance to clients about how much compensation they should expect from an injury case based on similar cases or settlements in different regions of the country or state where the case is being heard.
Can You Get Compensation For Pain And Suffering?
Yes! Most people do not realize that pain and suffering are compensable types of damages in personal injury claims; however, these can be a big part of what makes up your total compensation package because they reflect your own feelings about what happened and how your life has changed since then due to your injuries and any related problems you have experienced as a result of your injuries (such as post-traumatic stress disorder). It is important to note that pain and suffering are inseparable from medical damages; what this means is that even though medical expenses have specific dollar amounts associated with them (e.g., $100 for surgery), pain and suffering is not limited in this way – so it does not matter whether you have $1 million worth of medical expenses or $5 million worth of medical expenses: both could result in $1 million worth of pain and suffering damages if it fits into your particular case facts given by a jury/judge/mediator/settlement conference arbiter/etc… Ultimately, deciding whether or not something is compensable depends on whether it would cause “unreasonable discomfort” compared against other similar plaintiffs (in terms of age/health/etc…) who might have suffered similarly after having sustained similar injuries from similar incidents involving negligence on behalf of others who owed them legal duties to act reasonably towards them
