I was injured because of someone else’s negligence. Now what do I do?
The first thing you should always do if you’ve been injured because of someone else’s negligence is get any necessary medical treatment.
After your treatment, you should immediately contact a personal injury lawyer. You have a legal right to seek compensation for damages, and a lawyer will help you do that. Also, you cannot rely on the insurance companies to give you a fair settlement. Insurance companies are not in the business of paying out claims. They will do everything they can to pay you as little money as possible, with no care for you or your losses.
Retaining a personal injury lawyer for your case will help ensure that the insurance companies don’t get the chance to take advantage of you. Your lawyer will either negotiate a fair settlement, or fight for maximum compensation in court.
