Do You Qualify for a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Anyone who is seriously injured by the negligence or reckless behavior will likely qualify to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person(s) responsible. It is important to note that each state has a statute of limitations outlining how long a person has to file a claim from the time of the accident. Because of this, it is important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to make sure you don’t run out of time and miss your opportunity to file.
It is also important to keep in mind that memories fade, evidence can disappear and insurance companies can delay or deny claims. If you are injured in an accident, try to document as much of the accident as possible (if you can). You will want to take pictures and video of the accident scene, write down the names and contact information of any witnesses and get the names and contact information of anyone involved. You will also want to visit the doctor right away and contact an attorney as soon as possible so he or she can investigate while evidence and memories are still fresh.
Serious injuries can change a person’s life forever. The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to recover compensation for injuries and losses so the injured person can focus on getting better and moving forward with his or her life. Compensation might cover losses such as:
- Medical bills (hospital bills, long-term care and other medical bills)
- Lost wages in the event that the injured person can’t work
- Loss of earning capacity if the injuries are long term
- Decreased quality of life
- Loss of companionship and economic support in wrongful death claims
- Funeral and burial costs
Serious injuries can be devastating for an entire family. At Chaffin Luhana, we recognize the seriousness of your injuries and will do everything we can to get you the maximum amount of compensation possible so you and your family can focus on moving forward with your life.
