Everything You Need To Know About Personal Injury Claims
Thursday, December 6, 2018

If you or your loved one gets seriously injured, you can file a personal injury claim against the person or party responsible for the accident. A personal injury claim can help you receive compensation for the damages you incurred because of your or your loved one’s injury.

Personal Injury Claims Aren’t Just Limited to Car Accidents

Many people know that they can file a personal injury claim if they are involved in a car accident. However, personal injury claims aren’t just limited to car accidents. In any instance where a person suffers harm because of another individual’s or party’s negligence, they can file a personal injury claim. Personal injury claims can also relate to faulty consumer products, accidents at work and dog bites.

Compensation in a Personal Injury Claim

Personal injury lawsuit may allow you to receive compensation for:
  • Lost wages
  • Medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
Time and Evidence are Crucial

If you or your loved one suffered harm because of someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t wait to file a personal injury claim. Depending on the state, there is a certain period for filing a personal injury lawsuit. Once that period is over, you won’t be able to file a claim in the court and won’t get compensated for your damages.
It’s also important to collect evidence to prove to the court that you or your loved one suffered harm because of the defendant’s negligence. For example, if you suffer an injury in a car accident that results from someone else‘s negligence, you must prove the other driver’s negligence. Evidence that you may have to gather in that case includes photographs of the accident, witness testimonies, police report, etc.

Keeping Details of Expenses and Losses is Essential

In a personal injury claim, the court will require you to provide records of financial expenses and losses incurred as a result of personal injury. For example, you may receive treatment for your injuries after an accident. You’ll need to provide medical bills so that the court can calculate the compensation you’re entitled to. Compensation for financial damages can be calculated through reports like medical bills, paystubs, etc. However, calculating non-financial damages like pain and suffering can be difficult. You can take help from a personal injury attorney from Wolterman Law Office in this regard.

Don’t Accept Settlement Offers

Before you file a personal injury claim, insurance companies of the person or party who caused you harm will likely contact you and make an early settlement offer. The offer will be worth much less than the compensation you’re entitled to. Therefore, you should discuss the situation with an attorney and ask the insurance company to offer you a fair compensation. If they deny, you should take the case to the court by filing a personal injury claim.
