A personal injury attorney is an advocate for those who suffered a debilitating hurt or now deal with the aftermath of an accident and the medical bills that come with it. Frequently, our clients wonder if they really need to seek professional assistance in protecting their legal rights.
To make your decision a bit easier, we have narrowed down the types of cases that usually benefit from the involvement of counsel.
- Medical malpractice. If a medical professional, because of negligence, lack of practice or simply because of a human error, has harmed you, you may experience lifelong results from that one mistake. Thinking long-term during the resolution of your case allows you to plan for the availability of funds to pay for future medical bills or make up for future lost wages.
- Product liability. Car recalls, disabilities and deaths associated with prescription use, and problems with chargers powering consumer goods from hover boards to e-cigarettes and cell phones all fall under the product liability heading. When used as intended by the manufacturer, a product is supposed to be safe. If you have followed all the directions and still got hurt because of a product defect, you may benefit from seeking legal advice to protect your rights.
- Premises liability. Slip and fall accidents happen more frequently than you think. Although oftentimes the victim of the fall gets up, brushes dust from the clothes and moves on, there are times when the fall results in a debilitating personal injury. Whether it happened at a grocery store, at the DMV or in the parking lot of your child’s school, you may need assistance with filing a case when there were unsafe conditions the business or organization should have known about.
After filing a report and seeking immediate medical treatment, it is always a good idea to consult with a personal injury attorney as well to learn about your rights. Contact us today with your questions or to find out what it takes to protect your rights.
