Being involved in any type of accident, whether it’s an automobile accident or a slip and fall, can be incredibly stressful. You and your loved ones may be facing hefty medical fees or other financial burdens due to the aftermath of the accident. You should not have that burden placed on your shoulders due to someone else’s fault.
If you were injured as the result of an accident, you need a Laredo personal injury lawyer on your side. You need Javier Guzman of Guzman Law Firm to fight for the compensation you and your loved ones deserve.
In an Accident? You May be Entitled to Damages
Whether it be a physical or nonphysical injury, accident victims could be entitled to special compensatory damages and/or general damages. Economic damages are those that can be measured and collected in monetary value. Examples of special compensatory damages include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical therapy
- Domestic help
- Heightened cost of living
General damages are less concrete and are subjectively evaluated by a jury. Examples of non-economic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of enjoyment/companionship
Though financial compensation cannot solve the pain and suffering you may be enduring, it can surely help ease the financial burden of piling medical bills and lost wages as you heal from your injuries.
When Should You Hire a Laredo Personal Injury Lawyer?
You should contact a Laredo personal injury lawyer if you or a loved one have been involved in the following incidents:
- Car Accidents
- Wrongful Deaths
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Dog Bites
When disaster strikes, your top priority should be your safety and wellbeing. Once you have sought and received medical attention for your injuries, no matter how minor, it’s important to contact an attorney that you trust as soon as you can. If you are able to safely stay at the scene of the accident, collecting evidence on-site can help to build a stronger case. This evidence can include the other party’s name and contact information, photographs of the accident scene, police reports, and eyewitness testimonies.
If you did receive medical treatment as a result of your injuries, keep a record of any medical bills that you could be compensated for. This will not only aid your argument but will strengthen your likelihood of winning your personal injury lawsuit.
Once you are ready to file a claim, be sure to contact an attorney you trust before speaking to an insurance company. An insurance adjuster will attempt to contact you with a settlement offer. Do not agree to anything until you have spoken to a personal injury attorney. Insurance companies are known to offer you much less than what you are owed. An attorney can ensure that you will get your deserved settlement amount in negotiations.
Why is it important to seek legal representation in an accident?
Accident victims can benefit from choosing a skilled personal injury attorney to represent them for many reasons, here are just a few.
- An attorney can deal with greedy insurance companies who are only concerned with protecting their client or company –– we, however, are only concerned with fighting for you. Javier Guzman will go toe-to-toe with insurance companies to fight for the maximum compensation you deserve.
- Being involved in an accident can be a traumatic experience for you and your loved ones, and you may not have the training or the time to take on the insurance company.
