Personal injury is a legal term for any injury that may occur to the body, mind, or emotions. This legal definition may sound simple, but if you have ever endured any type of personal injury, you are aware of the complexities and immense difficulties a personal injury accident can cause. A personal injury accident may include anything from an auto accident to a workplace injury, or an injury caused by a defective product. From a minor injury to the most serious of injuries, everyday life can become challenging for the injury victim who is simply trying to recover and move forward.
In the unfortunate event you are injured as a result of another person’s negligence, you deserve compensation to aid you in your recovery. A skilled personal injury attorney with Lipton Law can provide you with the quality assistance you need to get back on your feet after an injury accident.
Why File a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury accident can be extremely devastating not only for the victim, but for the family who is helping their loved one recover. Depending on the situation, an injury accident may leave a person with costly medical bills, treatment, and rehabilitation, and the time an individual needs to recover may be lengthy which means daily life (including work) may be put on hold. Following an injury accident, the last thing a person may want to do is speak with an attorney, and it may seem like an additional hassle in an already stressful situation. However, filing a personal injury claim can be extremely important in recovery.
Seeking compensation from the at-fault parties liable for the accident can not only assure the negligent party is held legally accountable, but can also ensure you receive the financial assistance you are entitled to which can help pay for any accident-related losses you may incur. Relieving the financial stress that often accompanies an accident will allow you to focus on healing and moving on from the accident.
Compensation to Recover
In a personal injury case, the injury victim can be awarded certain damages to help them recover from both their injuries and the actual event of the accident. Most importantly, a personal injury claimant can be given compensation to pay for medical expenses, including hospital expenses, medications, rehabilitation, and personal therapy. Depending on the severity of the injuries, medical bills can be very expensive and add up quickly, so receiving compensation to cover these expenses is crucial. A personal injury victim can also be given compensation for lost and future wages, as well as any damage to one’s property, such as vehicle repair in an auto accident.
Damages in a personal injury case can also be given for pain and suffering, which is the legal term for the physical and emotional stress caused by an injury and/or accident. Physical pain, mental or emotional trauma, and loss of consortium (or loss of spousal companionship and services) are all examples of what one might be awarded for pain and suffering. A skilled MI personal injury attorney can help you determine what types of compensation you may be entitled to receive.
