If you are hurt in an accident or a fall due to the negligence of another person, you should file a claim and try to obtain money to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages as soon as possible after the accident. You want to do this before you lose relevant evidence or miss the statute of limitations, which limits how long you have to seek compensation for your injuries.

You increase your chances of obtaining recompense for your damages if you file your claim while fresh evidence of your injuries is available and before you lose that evidence. Your medical records and bills should clearly show the nature and extent of your injuries. Filing a claim right away also increases the likelihood of an insurance company to pay for your damages. An insurance company is more likely to repay your medical bills in full if you file your claim early in the process, supported by compelling evidence.

You should talk to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after you are hurt by scheduling an initial consultation.

Navigating the Initial Consultation

When you have your initial consultation with your personal injury lawyer, you want to make sure that you are as prepared as possible. You should ensure that your lawyer has all the information necessary to properly review your case. Important items that you can bring to your lawyer are any police or accident reports or investigations that have been done on your crash. Oftentimes, the report will have the parties involved and describe what happened, including who may be at fault for what occurred.

Photographs of any injuries you sustained, along with medical records and bills, can show what medical treatment you received and how long it might have taken you to recover. For example, you can bring pictures of the scene where the accident happened, your injuries, and the damage to your property as evidence of what happened. Doing so can help you or your lawyer understand your damages and injuries. Trying to explain what occurred can be complicated without visual evidence.

Additional documents to bring to your consultation include copies of your health and automobile insurance policies and your correspondence with your insurer about your claim and the accident. These documents can help you and your lawyer understand your coverage, what your carrier says about your insurance and any communications they’ve had with you about the accident.

The Role of Expert Witnesses in Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases often benefit from the testimony of expert witnesses. These professionals can provide knowledge and insights that are crucial for establishing liability and proving the extent of the injuries you sustained.

Whether it is a doctor detailing your injuries and medical needs or an accident recreation specialist explaining how a crash occurred, an expert’s testimony can provide crucial evidence in a case. Here at Corrales Law Group, we work with a nationwide network of independent, credible experts so our clients can have the assistance to support their claims. Our attorneys take the time to vet experts and thoroughly prepare them so they can explain highly technical information to judges and juries in a way that helps win cases for our clients.

FAQs

Q: What If the Insurance Company Offers Me a Settlement?

A: If you’ve been injured and the insurance company for the person who hurt you offers you a settlement, then you need to consult a personal injury attorney before accepting the settlement. Oftentimes, that first settlement offer is lower than what you are entitled to receive. You cannot file a claim later if you’ve already accepted a settlement.

Q: What Is a Serious Personal Injury?

A: A serious personal injury is any injury that impacts your day-to-day life by altering your normal function or making your daily routine difficult to accomplish. Typically, a serious injury requires the intervention of medical personnel and can take a long time to treat and recover from.

Examples might include:

  • Burns
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractures
  • Permanent disability
  • Permanent disfigurement

Because these serious injuries result in large medical bills and lost wages, those who suffer them deserve significant compensation.

Q: What Are Special Damages in Personal Injury Cases?

A: Special damages are monetary losses caused by an injury that can be directly proven and quantified. These damages factor into personal injury cases and include medical costs, lost wages, property damage, and other expenses specific to the injury. These are different from general damages (non-economic losses), such as pain and suffering. A successful personal injury case requires sufficient documentation and evidence to calculate and assert special damages.

Q: What Is the Most Serious Type of Injury?

A: One of the most devastating injuries that can arise from a personal injury incident, such as a car crash, is a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. A TBI can cause catastrophic loss of cognitive, emotional, and physical functionality in the injured person. Other well-known personal injuries are spinal cord injuries or burn injuries. These can require prolonged care and often result in pain and suffering for the victim.
