Causes of Injuries
Car accidents, work injuries and slips, trips and falls are the most common types of personal injury scenarios that often result in physical injury.
According to a CDC survey, in 2001, over 29 million people went to an emergency room for an accidental injury. Most were due to car crashes and falls.
However, it's important to note that many accidents that cause injuries are the result of negligence and could have been avoided.
Some common causes of personal injury include:
Injuries can vastly range in severity. Some injuries are temporary, but others are permanent, debilitating and require a lifetime of care. If you have been hurt, contact us today.
What Should I Do If I’ve Been Injured?
If you’re injured, seek medical attention as soon as possible. If you delay treatment, an insurance company may deem your injuries unrelated to your case. If you don't seek medical treatment you may not have a case at all.
You should also keep a record of all the damages in your case. Track your medical costs and any time lost from work. Also track the effects the injury has had on your daily life. Your attorney may be able to use this information to seek more money for your injuries.
Finally, contact our Cincinnati personal injury law firm to discuss your case for free. Lawsuits must be filed by a certain time. That's why you should seek the advice of an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
Personal Injury Damages
There is no precise way to calculate the value of a personal injury case. Each case is different and there is no standard payout for a personal injury claim. Therefore, it is impossible to know the worth of your case without a review by a personal injury attorney.
Personal injury cases often include costs which are easy to tally. Examples include medical costs and lost wages. These are called special damages. But some costs are harder to pin down, like what you may have to pay in the future. These are general damages that can include pain, scarring and disability.
If you settle with an insurance company, your case is closed. You cannot get any more money. If you need more medical treatment in the future, there is usually no way for you to get more money. Consult with a Cincinnati personal injury law firm before you settle.
How Does a Lawyer Help My Case?
Personal Injury lawyers are valuable allies. Your attorney can fight for more money for your injury claim. Specifically, an attorney can identify additional damages and negotiate with your insurance adjuster for a fair settlement for all your losses.
An insurance company is a business. One way an insurer protects its profits is by offering as little as possible for your claim. Our personal injury attorneys have over 30 years of experience negotiating for our clients. Our lawyers work hard to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
What Costs Are Involved in Hiring a Lawyer?
Many potential clients want to know how a personal injury attorney is paid. The answer is simple: we are not, unless we are successful. This is strong motivation for your attorney to do everything possible to get the MAXIMUM compensation for your injuries.
We collect a fee if our attorneys get you a verdict or settlement. Fees are usually a percentage of your award. You and your attorney will agree on the fee before any work is done.
An attorney can't accept a settlement without your consent. If a proposed amount is unsatisfactory, an attorney can file the case in court and go to trial.
