If you've recently suffered a personal injury, it's absolutely normal to be considering taking legal action. However, you may also be asking yourself questions such as "Is my injury serious enough for a lawsuit?" or "When is the right time to call a personal injury lawyer?"
The Maryland Injury Guys attorneys for personal injury discuss this topic in the following blog entry.
Depending on the nature of your injury, you may have significant doubts as to whether it is worth it to file a legal claim or lawsuit. Many victims of injuries are often worried about how long the claims process can take or how much legal representation can cost.
Perhaps the biggest reason why injury victims don't pursue lawsuits right away is that they believe that an insurance policy will cover their damages. Whether it's their own insurance or that of the person who caused the injury, victims expect their medical costs and other damages to be paid for in good faith. Unfortunately, when it comes to insurance policy benefits, the cases in which all of the victim's damages are covered are more the exception than the rule.
The fact of the matter is that, without an injury lawsuit or other legal injury claim, victims may not get the compensation required to "make them whole again." Some may not even receive enough compensation to cover the existing medical bills, let alone any others that may come up in the future. Lost wages, another type of damage commonly recovered in injury lawsuits, is rarely taken into account by an insurance provider.
It is because of the previous points that we highly suggest contacting a lawyer after just about any injury. This is simply because most victims are not aware of the extensive legal options that exist for compensation. By speaking with an injury law firm, the injured parties can get a sense of what options are at their disposal. Even if they refrain from pursuing a claim, at least they have made this decision in an informed manner.
On the other hand, some specific situations can arise in injury claims and when they do, it is critical for victims and their loved ones to seek legal representation. For instance:
