Don't be afraid to make a personal injury claim

Many people don't like to make personal injury claims after an accident. They may think that doing so requires them to sue a friend, relative or local business, and that is something that they are unwilling to do.

Still, the medical bills are piling up from their injuries after the collision or slip and fall and it hardly seems fair that the injured person and their insurance company must pick up the tab.

If you find yourself in a similar situation, you should understand that there is a difference between making a claim for damages and actually filing a lawsuit against the person or entity that is responsible for your injuries and damages. While lawsuits begin with claims for damages, not all claims for damages turn into lawsuits.

In fact, most claims are satisfactorily resolved without ever having to file a lawsuit. Even if an attorney does file a personal injury lawsuit, that is often to prevent the claim from proscribing and their client losing their right to take civil action in the matter. It is not indicative that the claim will ever be litigated in a court of law.

The reason that people bother to carry insurance (other than to comply with the law) is to protect them from personal liability while driving, operating their business or other activities. Of course, the goal is to engender no claims for damages, but that ship sailed out of port the moment you were injured due to negligence or even just bad luck.

If you were injured in an accident or a collision, we can help you get the financial compensation that you need to move forward after the accident that injured you.
