Personal Injury FAQ
Why Do You Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
Recovering from a traumatic injury can be complicated enough on its own, but a personal injury lawyer can help you see through the entire process. Personal injury claims tend to involve a number of different factors such as insurance claims, medical bills, and property damage, and the laws surrounding each of them can be too complex for the layperson to handle on their own. By hiring a personal injury lawyer like the compassionate and talented staff of Goodwin & Scieszka, you can seek the compensation and justice you deserve.
What is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law is a series of laws that cover disputes between two parties, when the actions of one have led to the other party being injured. While the laws around personal injury can be complex and difficult to navigate, the goal of these laws is to establish responsibility for your injury, and to assign financial liability as needed for your injury as well as your recovery.
What Do Personal Injury Lawyers Do?
During a personal injury case, the goal of injury lawyers is to help you seek the maximum possible compensation and determine responsibility for your injuries. Personal injury lawyers will work alongside you to help answer any questions the insurance companies may have, present your case to the judge as necessary, and determine what sort of financial compensation you may be entitled to. This financial compensation can include lost wages due to time off work during recovery, psychiatric therapy to help recover from the trauma of your injury, medical expenses, and overall pain and suffering from the events of your injury.
When Should I Contact A Personal Injury Lawyer?
It’s important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your injury. Whatever the cause of your injury (dog bite, car accident, personal assault, etc), you’ll likely be contacted by the other parties’ insurance company very soon after with a number of questions, and having a lawyer present to help answer those questions and address any issues will make sure you can get the maximum possible compensation for your injury.
What Should I Look For In A Personal Injury Lawyer?
A lot of lawyers out there say they handle personal injury cases, but due to the varied nature of these claims, personal injury law can require a large number of skills and experiences to help you get the maximum compensation for your claim. The right personal injury lawyer should have experience in a number of different facets of injury law and types of injury, as well as the strong winning track record to back it all up.
