What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim allows injured victims to seek financial compensation for injuries and damages that they have sustained due to someone else’s negligence. There are many types of accidents that may lead to a claim; however, the victim will have to prove that the accident was the direct result of someone’s wrongdoing.
Most, if not all, personal injury accidents are preventable. By definition, personal injuries are caused by the negligence or recklessness of others. Such negligence can occur in many ways and be committed by a number of different parties, such as drivers, doctors, city or state entities, and even product manufacturers.
Some of our Bowie personal injury attorneys’ key practice areas include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- First responder injuries
- Workers’ compensation
- Premises liability
- Defective and dangerous products
Consequences of Injury
Personal injury accidents can cause any number of injuries, from minor bumps and bruises to broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal trauma, and even death. The repercussions of these injuries can create significant hardships for the injury victim as well as his or her family. Not only would a severe personal injury victim have to undergo medical treatment, but he or she may also require rehabilitative and/or long-term medical care. Such injuries may even result in permanent disability. A personal injury victim may never be able to work again. How then can they financially support themselves and/or their family? How can they be sure to get the medical treatment and care they need to maintain the best possible quality of life? The answer is simple, though the process is complicated: by holding the at-fault party liable for their negligence.
Damages in a Bowie Personal Injury Claim
A successful personal injury claim will usually result in financial compensation for the victim. Under the law, a personal injury claim by the victim can only include specific types of damages. Some of the damages you can claim are medical expenses, lost wages, cost of hospitalization, and rehabilitation including physical therapy and chiropractic care. Other damages may also be available. Victims will usually need the help of an experienced Bowie injury lawyer to determine what damages they can claim.
The Importance of Retaining an Injury Lawyer
Anyone injured in an accident may decide to tackle the case on their own. This would actually be the right route if you have not suffered any injuries. However, if you sustain serious injuries in a car accident, you need a skilled personal injury lawyer on your side – one who will fight for your rights and look out for your best interests.
