Whether you were in a car accident or hurt while visiting someone else’s property, Lavent Law can help you determine what your case is worth and how you should proceed. Personal injuries run the gamut and are as diverse as the situations that cause them. Depending on the specifics of your injury, different laws will apply on a case-by-case basis.
To find out if you should file a lawsuit after being injured, speak with a North Miami personal injury lawyer from our firm. After reviewing what happened, we can let you know if you have a strong case and whether you should file a lawsuit.
Personal Injury Cases Can Be Complex
In order to receive compensation, you must prove that someone else was negligent and to blame for your accident and injury. This is not always easy, and your North Miami personal injury lawyer will apply resources and determination to each case in order to gather the evidence required:
- That you were injured in an accident and the extent of your injuries
- The accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, whether an individual, business, or entity
- Your injuries require medical care, which has resulted in expenses and financial loss
- The impact your injuries have had on your life
We will also need to prove when and where the accident took place and that you had very little to do with causing it. By doing all of this successfully, we maximize the value of your claim and provide you with the best chance possible for a successful outcome.
Steps to Take After Your Accident
Protecting your rights begins the moment you are in an accident. You need to begin preserving and documenting evidence in order to demonstrate how your accident happened and why:
- Grab your phone and take pictures of everything
- Speak with witnesses and get their contact information
- File an accident report with the police or business involved
- See your doctor for a full medical evaluation
- Call an attorney to discuss your case and determine what your next step is
Maximize Your Compensation
Many times, accident victims leave money on the table because they fail to account for all of their possible expenses such as future medical bills. You can also request money for other ways that you have suffered financially. For example, your lost wages and any modifications made to your home in order to accommodate your injury should all be factored into your settlement.
By working with a North Miami personal injury lawyer, you can ensure that your end settlement amount takes into account all of your accident-related expenses and damages.
Aside from your personal injury case, permanent injuries may also qualify you for Social Security Disability payments. This is a separate process from filing your lawsuit and we can walk you through how to file correctly.
