Wondering About an Injury? Ask Us
November 26, 2013
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death in the United States. If you are seriously injured in a car or truck accident, legal help is available for filing and pursuing a claim for compensation.
There were more than 1,000 traffic fatalities in Pennsylvania in 2011. Beyond the death toll, many accidents resulted in major or minor injury. Any kind of physical injury hurts and is shocking, but many people want to move forward and try to forget it. As a working person, you may not want to take the time to see an attorney. Worse yet, you may call an attorney who tells you the injury does not warrant legal action. Should you pursue it further?
The answer is yes. If you were hurt, an attorney can assess your case and provide you with straightforward feedback.
Consider these points:
* An attorney without significant experience in your area of injury may not feel competent to pursue your case. Speaking with a second attorney about your case is essential to confirm or oppose the first lawyer’s assessment.
* Despite medical reports that indicate you have a disability as a result of your accident, you may play down your injury. Speaking to an attorney with years of experience representing clients with your type of injury is the only way to obtain the information you need pertaining to your case.
An injury should be taken seriously. If you suffer a job-related accident or are hurt because of the negligence of others, speak to a law firm for a free, thorough assessment of your case.
