Personal Injury Attorneys
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, you’re probably entitled to more financial restitution than you think. Our state-specific guides to personal injury attorneys can help you get it.
For example, did you know that personal injury can go beyond physical damage? You can suffer mental distress after an auto accident as well. Then there’s financial hardship; how much work did you miss due to doctor’s appointments and recovery time? All of this falls under the legal umbrella of personal injury law, also known as tort law.
Our Guide to Personal Injury Attorneys
If you are recovering from an injury caused by an auto accident, you might be entitled to compensation in addition to what your insurance company initially offers for your medical costs. In fact, you might be able to receive a settlement to help with other losses such as:
- Lost wages.
- Additional medical bills.
- Domestic help while you’re incapacitated.
- Emotional distress.
- Pain and suffering.
- Loss of quality of life.
Auto insurance companies, however, have large legal departments dedicated to minimizing what they pay out to policyholders. By yourself, you have little leverage. With the help of a personal injury attorney, you have a much better chance of getting a better settlement.
Luckily, our state-by-state guides to personal injury attorneys can put you in touch with someone who can advocate on your behalf. Many will gladly give you a free initial consultation.
If you seek legal advice, it’s important that you do so as soon as possible after an accident. You’re more likely to get the compensation due to you if your attorney is able to act quickly.
