We at the Law Offices of Kenechi R. Agu understand that suffering a personal injury is difficult. As the victim, you have been hurt by someone else who acted negligently and yet you are left to deal with the consequences of that injury – the medical treatment and missed time at work, and you may even have suffered personal property damage as well, such as a wrecked vehicle or motorcycle. With everything that happens after you have been hurt in an accident, you don’t need the additional stress concerning the legal aspects of your accident. What you need is an experienced personal injury attorney by your side to help you through the aftermath of your accident.
There are many types accident or incidents that can result in a personal injury. For example:
- Motor vehicle accidents;
- Motorcycle accidents; and
- Slip and fall accidents.
These types of accidents all have a common element: they can all happen because someone acted negligently and another person, the victim, became injured as a result of that negligence.
If you or a loved one has been hurt or accidentally killed by the fault of another, you are likely entitled to compensation for your injury and/or loss, along with medical expenses, future medical expenses, compensation for lost time at work and compensation for pain and suffering. It is important to visit and consult with a personal injury lawyer to help you get a comprehensive understanding of what rights you have, what you can do, and determine how much you might be entitled to.
There are many factors that play into how a personal injury case will be resolved. A few more important factors include the extent of the injury sustained, whether the injury will require life-long treatment, where the injury happened, how it happened, who was at fault, and whether an insurance company is involved.
When Insurance Companies Become Involved
More likely than not, the at-fault party’s insurance company will get involved in your personal injury dispute in an attempt to mitigate the damages that they may have to pay you. When this is the case, as the victim or as surviving family member, it is important that you contact a personal injury attorney to help you through the aftermath of your accident. Insurance companies notoriously act in a self-serving manner, and are often convoluted and confusing when dealing with accident victims or their surviving family members. It is in the insurance company’s best interest to be difficult and frustrating so that the victim is more likely to accept a low settlement offer, in order for the whole ordeal to be finished quickly.
Leave the Insurance Company to Your Personal Injury Lawyer
One of the biggest advantages to hiring an experienced injury and accident attorney is that he or she will deal with the insurance company on your behalf. They will have the patience and expertise to deal with the insurance company directly. This provides you with the much-needed time and freedom you need to heal, grieve and get you and your family’s lives back on track.
Careful analysis of the facts of your personal injury case will reveal who may be liable to you for your injuries, what sources of compensation are available to you and what legal strategies would best serve you in resolving your case quickly and to your satisfaction. For instance, many personal injury cases are resolved out of court through settlement negotiations. Settlement is usually preferable to going to court since it is usually a quicker and more efficient means for resolving a personal injury dispute.
