What is a Personal Injury Claim?
When someone is injured due to the reckless or negligent actions of another individual, the victim may have the ability to pursue a personal injury case. The most common types of personal injury cases tend to be car and truck accidents. However, there are a variety of incidents that can rise to the level of requiring a personal injury lawsuit for resolution.
Dog bite cases, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents, there are all situations that may warrant legal intervention. This legal intervention holds the negligent party accountable for their actions and it also strives to recuperate compensation for the injured victim. Victims of accidents often encounter financial setbacks because of the high cost of medical care and the income they miss from being out of work while they recover. Is it fair that they should incur these costs when someone else was responsible for injuring them in the first place? At The Law Offices of Briggs & Briggs, we don’t think so.

Vehicle accidents are an unfortunate event that occurs on our highways and roads. No wants to be in a car wreck, but if you are, the first step is to notify your insurance or the insurance of the at-fault driver. Your next step is to hire a car accident lawyer. Immediately seek out medical attention and follow their advice. Many times, symptoms from injuries do not begin to display for days or even weeks after the accident.
When you are in an accident, never give a statement to the insurance company without consulting an auto accident attorney first. This is because they ask certain questions in a specific way hoping you, the non-fault party will inadvertently admit full or partial liability for the accident. This can and will make a significant difference in your ability to recover any money for your case. When you hire a personal injury attorney, the attorney will handle with the insurance company on your behalf.

Personal Injury Lawsuits are Designed to Protect You
Many people, understandably, have apprehensions about pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. The most common fears are that it is too expensive, or the legal process is too complicated. However, personal injury lawsuits are designed to protect you, the victim. After a serious accident, you will likely end up with medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, sometimes even the cost of property damage. Your life can be upended and even finding the money to pay everyday bills becomes a challenge. Your financial stability has been shaken and there is no telling if or when things will ever get “back to normal.”
Personal injury lawsuits are a legal recourse for victims to pursue the compensation they deserve for their injuries and the costs associated with those injuries. When someone else causes a serious accident, it should become their responsibility to make the situation right again. Without the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, an induvial may be able to get away with injuring you and laying the financial responsibility for those injuries at your feet.
As for the argument that hiring a personal injury lawyer is going to be too expensive, the cost of not hiring a lawyer may be even higher. Those that turn to a personal injury lawyer for help after an accident tend to recover more in the way of financial compensation than those who try to recover compensation on their own. Not only that but at The Law Offices of Briggs & Briggs we don’t ask for any money upfront. The initial consultation to discuss the merits of your case is free. After that, we work a contingency-fee-basis. That means we don’t get paid unless you recover compensation for your case. Still, think the process is too complicated? Let us do the heavy lifting. We take on the burden of investigating your case and can guide you through the entire legal process from start to finish.
