Summary: Questions to Consider before Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim

No one ever wants to imagine themselves in a situation where they or a loved one is injured in an accident, but unfortunately, many of us will have to face the reality of a being involved in an accident and getting injured due to another’s’ carelessness or negligence.  Pursuing a personal injury claim can help you and your loved ones deal with the burdens (physical, financial and emotional) of an accident, but there are some considerations that must be taken prior to that step. Before you call your trusted Bucks County trip and fall lawyer to pursue a personal injury claim, consider these questions.

Have I taken care of my health first?

The most important thing in any personal injury accident is to treat the injury immediately. If you do not have health insurance and do not know who will pay for your medical care, it may be tempting to try to find legal help first, but failure to treat the injury as soon as possible may cause the injury to get worse, which can leave you partially responsible for the severity of harm.  A good lawyer can always figure out who should be paying for your medical care, but it is the injured person’s responsibility to seek treatment where it is necessary.

Was the accident someone else’s fault?

If you’re looking to pursue a personal injury claim in court, you will need to show that another person or company is liable for the accident that was sustained by you or your loved one. If you believe that you or a good lawyer can show that another party was responsible for the event that caused the accident, consider calling a local personal injury lawyer and discussing your case.

Am I speaking to the right attorneys?

Not all attorneys are created equal! For your personal injury case, you need to contact a law firm that’s experienced in personal injury claims and knows how to get you the compensation that you deserve.
