There are many different aspects to consider when determining whether you have a good personal injury claim. In order to recover for your injuries, you must be able to prove that someone else was at fault for your accident. The other person (or entity) must have either been negligent, reckless or committed an intentional act in causing the accident. For instance, if the other driver in a motor vehicle accident rear-ended your vehicle, it is highly likely that the other driver will found to be negligent. If someone hit you inside a bar without provocation, that is an intentional act for which a lawsuit for assault and battery can be brought. If the accident was only partially your fault and partially the fault of another, you can still make a personal injury claim based on the percentage for which the other party was at fault. You can expect that the other party will do their best to minimize their responsibility no matter the circumstances.
An experienced and skillful attorney can help you identify the potentially responsible parties that may not be clear to the average person. For example, the entity or entities responsible for a dangerous road or sidewalk may require research that is not always easily accessible for the public. Sometimes it takes the analysis of experts in the field to determine whether the manufacture or design of certain products should be held responsible when the product fails. It takes the collaboration of both attorney and client to fully understand the potential claim.
After you believe you can prove someone else was at fault, the next step is to prove the accident caused your damages. You can recover for both physical injury and emotional distress in the past and future. You can also recover for time that you missed from work or if you are unable to work in the future as a result of the accident. This is where the importance of seeking immediate medical treatment comes in. If you delay in obtaining medical treatment, the other party will argue that you could not really have been injured. The sooner you receive treatment, the easier it will be to get compensation. Moaddel Kremer has connections with doctors that will see you immediately and evaluate your injuries.
