Understanding Personal Injury Law
If you have been injured…
If you have been seriously injured due to an accident or the negligence of another person or company, I understand what you are going through. Most injury victims only want one thing; to get their life back in order. I talk to injury victims all of the time who say they are hesitant to “sue anyone” because they don't want to be seen as opportunistic or a “gold digger”. The fact is, if you have been injured, you are already in a legal situation. You are not going to “sue” anyone. Whether you were hurt in an auto accident, at someone's home, a private business or a public place you will recover compensation for your injuries from an insurance company.
Accident & Injury Victims Can Hire an Attorney with No Up-Front Fee
If you have been hurt, it can be hard to know how to take the first step. If you're missing time from work, or have medical invoices piling up, that can make a difficult situation even more stressful. The want to “put this all behind you” may lead you to consider an offer from the insurance company that is far less than you will need to make a full recovery. It costs you nothing to talk to an experienced accident and injury attorney in Dothan. If you decide to hire me, you will not have to pay anything up front. I will handle your case and then get paid a percentage of the recovery I secure on your behalf. Call or email me today to arrange your free initial consultation.
Assigning a Value to An Injury
The problem with settling with an insurance company on your own is that it's very difficult to accurately assess the correct amount of compensation for your injury. There are some amounts that are fairly straightforward to calculate, such as:
- Damage to your vehicle
- Medical costs for minor injuries that do not require on-going treatment
- Time missed from work
However, the real difficulty in assigning value to a case is with some of the more fluid numbers that can be open to interpretation such as:
- Future medical costs
- Reduced earning capacity
- Loss of enjoyment
- Pain and Suffering
- Permenent or Prolonged Disability
Don't Sign Anything Until You Talk to an Attorney
The most important thing to remember is that it's free to talk to an attorney before you sign anything. The insurance companies have experience and expertise on their side, and they will use it to pressure you into settling for less than your case is worth. If the insurance companies have attorneys protecting their rights, you should too. Call me today for a free initial consultation.
