Personal injury lawyers are sometimes unfairly maligned as “ambulance chasers” or as attorneys who encourage people to be unnecessarily litigious. But anyone who has ever been seriously injured and assisted by an attorney knows that characterization isn’t accurate. A personal injury lawyer can help an injured person receive the compensation they need to pay their bills or make up for lost wages. At Feniger, Uliasz & Stacey, our team will help you get the compensation you deserve in the event of a serious injury.
These are some common circumstances that require the services of a personal injury lawyer.
Serious Injuries and Long-Term Disabilities
Minor injuries can often be handled through insurance claims, but serious injuries usually require legal services to resolve compensation disputes. Victims of serious injuries require higher levels of compensation to make up for the losses incurred by the injury. Because the circumstances deal with large amounts of money, it is important to clearly prove who is liable for the injury. If the injury results in long-term or permanent disabilities, the matter becomes more complicated, as ongoing payouts may be involved.
Disputed Liabilities and Multiple Parties
In order to receive compensation for your injuries, you need to establish who is at fault. It is not uncommon for a claim to be disputed, so a personal injury lawyer can help you make your case and establish who is liable. In some circumstances, multiple parties may be liable for your injuries. A lawyer can negotiate with all parties and determine how each will contribute to your compensation.
Lack of Fair Settlement Offers
Often when a company or individual is found to be at fault for an injury, they want to finalize compensation for the injured party and make the problem go away. In those circumstances, they will sometimes make an offer to the injured party and hope they accept without dispute. If the offer is fair or generous, there is nothing wrong with accepting it and putting the matter to rest. However, if they do not offer a fair settlement, a personal injury lawyer will negotiate on your behalf to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve based on your injuries.
