According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 175,000 Americans experience unintentional injuries annually. These rank as the third-leading cause of death after cancer and heart disease.
When you suffer such an injury, it is common to feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. You may believe that you can handle the situation yourself, yet that may not be your best course of action.
On the other hand, hiring a personal injury lawyer can help you to defend your rights while focusing on your recovery. The vast majority of injury victims should call an accident lawyer as soon as possible, in order to give themselves the best chance for recovery.
Judd Shaw Injury Law is here to help you get the justice and financial recovery you deserve. We offer risk-free initial consultations and stand ready to answer your call 24/7 at 1-866-909-6894.
After Your Accident
In the immediate aftermath of a personal injury, many have the tendency to try and get back to normal as quickly as possible. Some even neglect seeking medical care or looking into compensation options. It is vital that your physical and financial recovery are priorities, as needlessly delaying could cause you problems down the road.
At Judd Shaw Injury Law, we can help you get prompt medical attention and navigate the insurance process as well. Prompt treatment can improve your chances of financial recovery in a personal injury claim. Meanwhile, we take over the paperwork and communication with the insurance company, so you can focus on your recovery, which matters most.
After ensuring you are on the road to recovery, it is time to examine your financial status. In most cases, if your injury was caused by another person, there is a legal requirement to meet before you can receive compensation for what you have lost.
You will need to prove that the at-fault party acted negligently, which is where a qualified personal injury lawyer comes in. You need an experienced attorney on your side, making sure that you have the proof you need to get the maximum compensation you deserve.
Don’t try to take on everything by yourself! That’s one common way people receive a much smaller insurance settlement than they are truly entitled to receive. Insurance companies will take advantage of you if you are not careful.
So if you have been hurt by another person or entity’s negligent action or inaction, the right time to call a personal injury accident lawyer is now! You need professional advice to make sure your rights are protected.
Protect Your Rights
Personal injury victims have had their lives disrupted and many want to get things back to normal as soon as possible. Some even try to navigate the complex world of insurance claims and litigation on their own. However, this can further prolong your recovery. What’s more, tackling the legal system on your own can make you a target for unscrupulous insurance agents’ tactics.
You may not be aware of what you are owed for your injuries. Insurers know this and often make lowball offers while pressuring you to accept. We, though, want to defend your right to adequate compensation and advocate for the true value of your claim. When Judd Shaw Injury Law takes on your case, you know that we are committed to helping you and your family get the maximum amount of compensation available.
Successfully proving negligence and getting compensation is often a difficult process involving hours of investigation, evidence collection, communicating with other parties, and negotiations. The other side may challenge your claim and even want to take your case all the way to the courtroom. When this happens, you need someone who will be fighting your corner every step of the way.
What to Ask an Accident Lawyer
After an injury, when you decide to ensure your rights are protected, now comes the time to find a personal injury lawyer who you want to hire. There are many options in law firms, so it is good to research a few and be ready to ask some questions during your initial free consultation.
At Judd Shaw Injury Law, we find that our clients often feel confident in their choice of legal team after receiving the answers to the following questions:
- How much will it cost to hire you?
- How long will the process take?
- What are the next steps?
- What are my chances of winning my case?
- What is your strategy for my case?
- Do you have experience with cases like mine?
- How do you plan on communicating with me throughout the process?
- When can I expect my settlement?
Upon getting answers, you will hopefully feel confident in your lawyer’s level of experience and the game plan for your case. Make sure that open communication and clear instructions are included in your first interaction with the legal team. In the weeks that follow, your lawyer welcomes any questions or comments you might have, so please never hesitate to get in touch.
