Have you sustained injuries through another's wrongful act or negligence? If you did then it is justifiable for you to file for claims so that the damages on you and your property can be compensated, at least.
However, you must be warned that it would be a naivete to depend on the insurance companies' assurance that they will be compensating you. Insurance companies nowadays are most careful, perhaps even very careful of releasing amounts of money right after a claim is filed.
Insurance companies have lawyers in their employ whose jobs are to ensure that the lowest possible payout for insurance claims be made by the company to those that filed for it ? the injury victim.
Parts of the insurance lawyers' jobs are to offer the victims with a quick settlement payment in check.
If ever you are a victim, and you have been offered this, and you felt that the amount they are offering is not enough to compensate for all of the damages the injury caused you and your family, then do not accept it.
They may also present you with some documents to sign. Do not fall into the error of signing anything while you have not yet consulted a qualified attorney with experience on the injury and case such as yours.
In situations wherein you have sustained severe injuries and had terrible impact on your life and your family's way of life, it is best to consult with an attorney not just specializing in the particular personal injury case you were involved in, but also one with substantial experience in trial cases.
Do not delay on doing this because the statutes of limitation, depending on your injury case and the state where you are situated, have variations on the allowable period to file a case. An injury case could involve complexities and lengthy preparation. Discoveries, expert medical testimonies need to be prepared by you and your attorney.
As such, get your case process sooner and avoid being disqualified due to expired SOL by finding the attorney you require.
If you are still physically unable to process your case yourself, then you can request a family member or friend to start the process for you. Your friend can be the one to set up a short list of possible personal injury trial attorneys you can engage for your case.
Then, together, you can go through the short list and your friend could accomplish the initial calls to set interview schedules with the possible candidates.
Here are several ways of finding possible attorneys for your case:
- Recommendations of friends or relatives with experience on cases such as the one you are going to face or with direct contact to the legal community.
- Online search engines or directories and lawyer/legal sites
- Local, State and Country Bar Associations, their online sites and their directories
- Phonebook, yellow pages
Even as you need to have your case, running as early as possible, use discretion in hiring the attorney you can trust and depend on with the qualified track record and years of experience and the following:
- Established attorneys fee system and estimated litigation processing expenses
- Prompt in returning phone calls
- Assure regular updates on your case's progress
- Religiously provide and inform you of all the acquired copies of documents
