What Are Some Common Serious Injuries?
The specifics of every severe injury are unique. However, some accidents tend to occur more often than others. Some of the most common injuries that we handle at McNally Law Office include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Broken bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Burn injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Road rash
- Partial and total paralysis
- Wrongful death
Certain injuries, such as head trauma or damage to your spine, can take a long time to fully develop. That is why it is critical to consult with an experienced lawyer who can help you recover the full amount of damages that will protect you over the long term, instead of just planning for the near future.
What Is The Personal Injury Claims Process?
After you have sought medical treatment for your injury, the next step you should take is consulting an attorney. Your lawyer can assist you with filing a personal injury claim with your insurance provider. In some situations, it may be necessary to hire outside professionals to research the accident, investigate the circumstances of the crash and provide expert testimony. Your lawyer can also communicate with the other party’s attorney and insurance company, if necessary.
If you do not receive an offer for the full amount of compensation that you need, your next step may be a lawsuit. In a personal injury action, an attorney files a formal complaint and summons with the court. The other party has the chance to negotiate a settlement or proceed to a trial in which a judge or jury will issue a decision regarding an award. The claims process can take several months to resolve. Some cases even take multiple years.
Avoid Talking To Your Insurance Company
Your insurance company’s representatives will likely contact you soon after the incident. Do not speak with them. Insurance providers do not want to pay the full amount that you need to pay for your damages. Insurance representatives use cunning tactics to deny and devalue claims, including:
- Contacting you immediately after the accident when you still feel disoriented
- Trying to shift the liability for the accident onto you
- Disputing the value of your damages
- Minimizing the severity of your injuries, even if they are catastrophic
- Getting you to sign a medical authorization form
- Offering a lower settlement than what you really need
- Making you feel so intimidated and exhausted that you give up
You should always have a lawyer on your side to ensure that your insurer does not underpay you. We have taken on some of the most powerful insurers in the country on behalf of our clients. With us, you will know that you have strong allies who are prepared to negotiate a settlement or litigate your case to seek a favorable award.
