“Accidents happen when you least expect them” is a time-honored platitude for good reason. Accidents happen every single day. They happen to people who are cautious and prepared, and they usually happen in spaces that feel familiar and safe: Rosedale’s parking lot, Woodview Open Space Dog Park, or Roseville’s Highway 36. The effects of an accident can run the gamut from a slight inconvenience to additional physical and financial burdens. Severe accidents can alter the trajectory of day-to-day life for the foreseeable future, and sometimes the unthinkable happens, and an accident results in death.
When an accident happens that causes injury, legal help might initially be an afterthought–it might take the absolute gut punch of paying an enormous medical bill to realize that a personal injury lawyer is your best course of action. After the initial shock of it all wears off and urgent medical needs have been addressed, the next thing to do is call the team at Weston Law Office and discuss the incident with a personal injury lawyer. They will help guide you through filing a claim, and get you back on your feet.
First of all, if you think you might need legal help, you probably do. Occasionally, people are indecisive about contacting a lawyer because they inaccurately think it will end up costing more money or make their situation more complicated. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. If you’ve been injured due to a dog bite, car accident, trucking accident, slip and fall, or if there has been a wrongful death, you have a solid case for a settlement. You want an experienced lawyer on your side while you navigate the claims process. Weston Law Office provides a free consultation, and only gets paid on the contingency that you receive a settlement. It’s a win-win for you.
The basic steps in filing a personal injury claim are to first get medical attention. This should be a no-brainer because you need to have documentation from an accredited doctor if you want to proceed with a personal injury claim.
Next, you need to have an expert guide you through the process because you will have to deal with insurance companies, and they are notoriously difficult to work with. It can’t be stressed enough that a personal injury lawyer will be your best friend to get you the compensation you deserve. Remember–insurance companies have several lawyers on retainer, just waiting to go to bat. You don’t. That’s why it’s crucial to have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your team.
From there, the lawyer will coach you through the process, deal with the insurance company’s attorneys, and work to get you a settlement fast. If a settlement can’t be reached, they’re ready to face off for you in court.
Yes, accidents happen. It’s a part of life that people have learned to accept; however, acceptance shouldn’t mean that the responsible party isn’t held accountable. If you or your family has been adversely affected by someone else’s negligence or mistake, you deserve to be fairly compensated. Find comfort in the fact that you don’t have to go it alone–there’s no need to stretch your hard-earned money to pay for something that shouldn’t have happened to you in the first place. A lawyer can’t go back in time to prevent the incident, but they can protect your financial future and help make things right by getting you the victory in court you deserve.
