Belcarra Personal Injury Lawyer
Sudden, catastrophic injury can turn your world upside-down. The world seems to stand still as you lie in a hospital bed. It’s not long before medical bills pile up, the insurers begin calling, and the police want your version of what happened. Through all this confusion, it helps to have a professional who is on your side.
At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we take excellent care of our clients, whether it’s finding a reputable medical specialist, aiding with accident investigations, negotiating a fair settlement with insurers, or holding third parties accountable for their role in causing the accident. You will always have access to your representative when you need it.
Did You Suffer A Personal Injury?
You may be wondering whether your case requires assistance from a personal injury lawyer. Ask yourself:
- Were you seriously injured? Minor cuts and scrapes are generally insufficient grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Broken bones, torn soft tissue, paralysis, scars, burns, or chronic pain are common injuries cited in lawsuits. If your injury required casting, stitches, surgery, lengthy rehabilitation, and time off work, you might need compensation above and beyond what you can afford out-of-pocket or what insurance companies are willing to pay.
- Was someone else involved? Liability is what makes an accident a “personal injury,” legally speaking. When another person directly or indirectly caused the accident that injured you, the other party may owe you compensation. Personal injury lawsuits are based on injuries caused by negligence or recklessness. Negligence is defined as “a failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances.” Recklessness is defined as “the state of mind where a person deliberately and unjustifiably pursues a course of action while consciously disregarding any risks flowing from such action.”
- Did the accident happen recently? The window of time within which you can initiate a personal injury claim extends to two years after the date of the accident. Exceptions exist in cases where victims are unaware their physical symptoms are related to an earlier incident – in which case the two-year clock starts ticking upon the discovery of harm.
Lawyers Investigate Accidents and Lend Support
In addition to filing lawsuits, much of the work we do involves compassionately listening to survivors of horrific accidents describe what happened to them, finding the best places for our clients to obtain medical care, working with local law enforcement to investigate the incident, and negotiating a fair settlement with insurance companies and defendants outside the courtroom. If necessary, we are ready to take your case to court and argue your claim before a judge.
