A qualified personal injury lawyer should be the first thing you look for after being involved in an accident.
The quicker you locate an experienced attorney to assist you with legal matters, the better chances you have of getting the compensation you deserve. At J. Renya law firm, an attorney will seek the required information, like whether the property owner or person responsible had insurance to cover your injury.
What damages can I claim?
In a personal injury case, there are three types of damages that may be awarded to you.
The most common is economic damage. This will make up for your lost wages and medical bills. An attorney will help you prove these costs by locating recipes, credit card statements, bills, and employment documents.
The second type of compensation is non-economic damages. These include things that affected your quality of life, like emotional distress, disability, mental aguish, and inability to continue with your hobbies and activities.
The third type is not very common, but punitive damages may be sought if the jury feels that the wrongdoer exhibited extreme disregard for you and others. This might be the case when the wrongdoer had a high blood alcohol content. Punitive damages are focused on punishing the wrongdoer rather than compensating the injured.
What kinds of personal injury can I seek compensation for?
You can seek compensation for your personal injury in a variety of circumstances. Some of the most common include: construction accidents, car accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, malpractice, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, premises liability, slip and fall accidents, and product liability.
When should I seek a personal injury lawyer?
An attorney should be located as soon as possible.
Personal injuries undoubtedly lead to massive amounts of trauma, emotional suffering, and physical pain, but a victim of personal injury should immediately begin looking for a skilled attorney.
Why should I look for an attorney?
