When you’ve been seriously injured by the negligence of someone else, you can file an injury claim to recover financial damages to cover your losses. Find out how to handle your claim by working with a Racine personal injury lawyer.
If accidents were predictable we could all save ourselves time, money, and pain. Unfortunately they’re not, and they happen on a regular basis. In many cases, an accident can lead to serious injury, and then you’re really in for it once the medical bills start coming through.
So what do you do when you’ve been hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault? You can fall back on the insurance companies involved to take care of your expenses, but you’ll likely end up undercompensated and over-frustrated in that scenario.
Your best choice after an accident is to hire an experience Racine personal injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Gary S. Greenberg. Hiring an attorney is your chance to have a fair fight against the insurance companies and get the compensation you’re entitled to—no matter what type of accident you’ve been involved in.
Types Of Personal Injury Accidents
Even the most minor accident can cause a catastrophic injury that justifies a personal injury claim. No matter what kind of accident you’ve been in, it’s likely that a Racine personal injury lawyer can handle your case. Some of the most common cases are listed below:
Motor Vehicle Accidents – All accidents involving you and another motorist, whether with a car, semi-truck, bus, or motorcycle
Medical Malpractice – Any injury sustained due to medical negligence
Premises Liability – An injury sustained while on someone else’s property or residence due to a hazard present on the grounds
Product Liability – Injury sustained while using a product as intended
Our firm will fully investigate your accident to determine what exactly happened and who, or what, is at fault. Both the cause and the fault of the accident can have an effect on the amount of compensation you are eligible to receive.
Compensation for Your Catastrophic Injury
Regardless of how the accident happened, you’re likely most concerned with how much money you are going to receive from the responsible party to cover your damages and losses. It should be noted that if you are found to be at all at fault for your accident, your compensation could be reduced accordingly, making it necessary to build a case that minimizes your level of fault.
Your Racine personal injury lawyer will negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf so that you don’t fall into their trap of quick settlements and undercompensation.
So how much are you eligible to receive? That depends on many factors, including the severity of your injuries and the parties at fault. While an exact estimate isn’t possible without all of the factors included, there are a few things you can expect to receive compensation for:
Medical bills, current and future
Pain and suffering
Lost income, wages, and earning potential
Rehabilitation or physical therapy costs
Repair or replacement of personal property
