After a serious injury, dealing with the pain and recovery of the injury is difficult enough. Before dealing with insurance companies, have an advocate on your side that can get you the most for your claim.
When is an injury serious enough to file a lawsuit?
Injuries can be physical or psychological. Serious injuries are those that cause life changing effects, or result in death. Permanent effects of an injury, such as disfiguration, nerve damage, traumatic brain injury, blindness, loss of limb, and other such problems are devastating. A lawyer can tell you what you might be able to recover in a lawsuit.
There are over 192,000 injury-related deaths every year in the US.
Examples of the most common serious injuries include:
- Construction injuries
- Exploding batteries
- Major burns
- Railroad injuries
- Workplace injuries
There are over 40 million emergency department visits for injuries every year in the US.
What should you do if you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury?
If you have been seriously injured and it was not your fault, or if you are acting on behalf of someone else who has suffered or died because of an injury, then you should consider taking legal action. If you want to do so you will need to get advice from a team of lawyers who know how to handle serious injury cases. You should also aim to do so as soon as possible as many serious injury cases have strict time limits within which legal action can be taken.
