Have You Been Injured In A Serious Accident?
The first question to ask yourself is, “how serious are my injuries?” If you had to visit a hospital after an accident, and incurred medical bills, got surgery, or had to miss work, it’s a good idea to talk to a personal injury lawyer. Not all injuries show up right away, so get checked out by a doctor after any major accident. If you’ve been injured in an accident and are having trouble paying for the medical bills, then you should definitely speak to a personal injury attorney. They can evaluate your case and speak to your doctor about a plan to help you move your case forward while also getting the medical treatment you deserve.
You Were Injured Due To Negligence.
If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident due to negligence, someone (other than yourself) is liable. Did you get hurt because someone failed to do their job properly, follow the law, or fix something that was broken? If the accident occurred because a person or a company was “negligent”, then they are liable for paying for the damages that were incurred. This can include slip and fall accidents on pavements or surfaces that are broken, nursing home neglect, medical malpractice, bike or car accidents, and even accidents at work.
