Personal injury lawsuits may result from a wide variety of accidents, including car crashes, truck accidents, and slip and falls.
The first thing that should occur when the unfortunate happens is making a report of the incident. For example, in a car accident case, you should call law enforcement immediately so a report can be made. Your next step should be to immediately contact me to evaluate your case. Never speak with the other party’s insurance company until you speak with me. Once the police report is complete, seeking medical attention should be your next step. If you miss any work, you should retrieve evidence to show the amount of days and lost wages which result from the accident. If you follow these steps, you have set yourself up for a strong case. The earlier you contact me, the better settlement we can achieve, and a better chance at a successful trial.
We have had a good track record of winning the claims of personal injury that has been built over the years. The claim of personal injury has very strict deadlines. In case of personal injury, your claim should be submitted within three years to the court, after the injury has taken place.
I will always take the option of going to trial if the need arises. In these cases, a victim will need to show that the party responsible for their injuries acted negligently in causing the accident. Negligence is a legal term that describes the appropriate precautions that apply to any given situation. Drivers are expected to obey traffic rules and stay alert to their surroundings, while stores and restaurants are supposed to clean spills and maintain their property for customers.
After proving that the defendant failed to meet the applicable standard of care, the plaintiff will need to show that the accident was a foreseeable result of the defendant’s carelessness. This issue of causation is important because victims will not be able to recover compensation if they were in any way responsible for the accident. An experienced personal injury attorney at our Charlotte office can help you assess your claim and gather evidence that places the fault for your injuries where it belongs.
If you have an injury because of the negligence of another person then you can make your claim of personal injury. After the injury has taken place, contact Schehr Law immediately after the occurrence. We will assess if you are eligible to claim personal injury or not. You might be liable to compensation based on the type of your injury. In some cases, you may get a damages payment that will ensure that all your cost is covered to get you back to the state that you were in before your accident, by the offender.
Your personal injury lawyer will evaluate the specific situation that you are in. There are various types of accidents and all accidents are different from each other. The entire process takes some time so get in touch with your insurers and collect all the medical evidence to make your case stronger.
Not only will I work tirelessly to retrieve a settlement or a win at trial, but I will negotiate with medical providers and insurance companies to reduce your medical bills. Reducing your bills will increase your settlement recovery.
