There are always people looking for the fastest, easiest ways to earn a quick buck, and getting rich quick is an ideal situation in the minds of many people. This society is one in which people will jump at the opportunity to file a lawsuit and reach a settlement, and it makes those who have a legitimate reason to sue hesitate to do so for fear of coming across as the kind of person who just wants money without doing any work. It’s unfortunate, but it’s the truth in this world. Lawsuits are everywhere, and many of them are baseless and ridiculous.
This leads us to the concept of an actual lawsuit with some validity to it. When you are the victim of someone else’s negligence, your entire world can change. Say, for example, you are in a car accident caused by someone else. You’ll find that personal injury attorneys want to help you, but that doesn’t mean you must sue. If the accident was minor, you have no injuries, and the insurance companies are doing their part, you probably have no reason to sue. You’re not out of work, you’re not out any money as a result of the accident, and your life isn’t changed other than the slight inconvenience of driving a rental car for a few weeks while your car is repaired. This is an ideal situation, and it’s one you can walk away from without a lawsuit or any other lifechanging processes.
When your accident is serious, injuries are involved, and your life changes, it’s time to consider a lawsuit. We know you aren’t looking to get rich quick, but you are entitled to damages in many instances. Don’t let the fear of looking like a get-rich-quick type prevent you from seeking the damages to which you are entitled.
Was Your Life Changed?
The best way to determine whether you have a case worthy of a lawsuit is to ask yourself this simple question. Did your life change as a result of this accident? These are some of the most common situations we want you to consider when you ask this question:
– Are you out of work for recovery?
– Are you suffering financially because of medical bills?
– Are your injuries serious enough to cause you to seek medical care for the rest of your life?
– Were your injuries catastrophic?
– Did you lose your job or income?
– Can you return to the same job you had before, or are you unable to return to that line of work?
– Do you require special medical equipment or lifelong medical care?
If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you have a lawsuit on your hands. The simple fact is you are a victim, and you should not spend the rest of your life suffering financially because of someone else’s negligence. You might not be looking to get rich quick, but there is nothing wrong with filing a lawsuit so you can afford to pay the medical bills you wouldn’t have if someone else hadn’t hit you. Your life shouldn’t change for the worse because of someone else. You have rights, and we are here to help you determine what those rights are.
Damages from a Lawsuit
If you’re injured in an accident caused by someone else, you might not welcome the knowledge your medical bills will not all be covered by their insurance company. In fact, laws only require insurance covers your medical bills up to a certain amount. This amount depends on where you live, what kind of policy is carried, and several other factors. If your injuries are severe, it might only take a few days to reach that point, and then you are responsible for your own medical bills.
Even with insurance, you might not be able to afford your medical bills. It’s not uncommon to find out you have to pay these bills for the rest of your life when you are catastrophically injured. In addition to this, you might not be able to return to work right away, at all, or you might not be able to return to a specific job. This means you’re out a paycheck, you might be unable to earn a living, and you might not be able to earn the same kind of living you did before as a result. This is not your fault, and you should be compensated for this.
The damages you can seek when you file a lawsuit aren’t in place to make you rich. They are in place to protect you and your financial future when someone else’s negligence changes your life forever.
– Medical bills since the accident
– Future medical bills incurred as a result of your accident injuries
– Lost income
– Diminished earning capacity
– Pain and suffering
There are many ways you can seek damages from your accident, and not accepting the first offer the insurance company presents you is one way. Let us help you find the compensation you deserve to keep your life on track following an accident. You didn’t ask for these things to happen to you, and there is no reason your entire life should change for the worse because someone else was negligent.
