Did you know that 700,000 personal injury cases are filed per year? If you have been involved in an accident at the hands of another, you might be wondering what you should do — and whether you can or should get help from a Lillington lawyer.
The first step is to determine if the accident falls into the personal injury category. In most personal injury cases, a physical injury has occurred, but not all. You can still file a personal injury claim if you have suffered a non-physical loss.
Let’s go over some of the common incidents where you might need a personal injury lawyer.
How Can We Help?
Generally, we can assist with personal injury cases that include accidents involving alcohol, as well as bicycle, automobile, or truck accidents. We help people with dog bites, head injuries, hit and runs, medical malpractice, negligence, nursing home injuries, pedestrian accidents, slip, trip, and fall accidents, and under/uninsured motorist claims. You can read about the types of accidents we cover at Kelly & West here.
So, Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Many people feel weird about filing a lawsuit after an accident. But rest assured, 98% of cases settle out of court without a lawsuit having to be filed. Also, most accidents cost you money. Those costs might be medical bills, even if you have insurance. The accident might mean paying higher premiums or missing work hours, shorting your paycheck. If the accident is someone else’s fault, it makes sense that he or she or his or her insurance company should pay those costs, not you.
You might think you can work it out on your own. But your case might be more complicated than you think. A personal injury claim can be overwhelming, and we are here to break everything down and inform you about every step. We take pride in making sure you are kept informed and updating you on the status of your case.
