Accidents are an inconvenience caused by our actions or someone else’s actions. But someone else who is involved in your accident can affect you in several ways. A personal injury accident is an accident that is caused intentionally or unintentionally by another person. That person’s careless actions must have caused you to experience serious harm.
If you’ve been hurt in a personal injury accident, you deserve a legal team that takes the time to listen and fight for your best interests. Contact a Lenox personal injury lawyer to see how we can help you make the best decision for your case.
Car accidents are some of the most common personal injury accidents. Car accidents qualify for a personal injury claim when the driver acts negligently and hurts other drivers. In a car accident claim, you would have to prove that the driver is the at-fault driver of your accident. If successful, you can sue the driver for your medical expenses, lost time from work, and pain and suffering.
Another common accident is a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle accidents can happen because of a motorcycle rider’s actions or the actions of another driver. Motorcycle riders who drive under the influence or speed can be held liable if they cause an accident.
Motorcycle riders can also be victims of motorcycle accidents. It’s usually other drivers who cause harm to riders, even when they are driving safely. Even though you can file a motorcycle accident claim, you may be walking in with a disadvantage. Many courts still have a prejudiced view of riders and will consider that with their claims.
Premises liability accidents are accidents that happen on another person’s property. The property owner can be held liable for your accident if a safety hazard on the premises caused you harm. The property owner must remove any hazards from the premises immediately.
Some examples of premises liability accidents include dog bite accidents, swimming pool accidents, slip and fall accidents, and even negligent security.
Truck accidents are one of the most complex personal injury accidents to prosecute.
Several parties can be held liable for a truck accident. Truck accidents are often caused by the negligence of the truck driver, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer, and the cargo loaders.
Product liability accidents happen because of the negligence of a manufacturer. The manufacturer’s failure to properly design, manufacture, or market a product can cause serious harm to consumers. Manufacturers can be sued when their defective product has put someone in harm’s way.
Boating accidents are personal injury accidents that many people don’t think about. But boat owners can be held liable when they act negligently at sea. Some common boating accidents are intoxication, dangerous steering, and recklessness. Like life jackets, boat owners who fail to keep safety gear on the boat can also be held liable.
All of these personal injury accidents can cause you to experience serious injuries. You can experience serious trauma to the head and suffer a brain injury. The pressure on your spinal cord can lead to temporary or permanent paralysis.
You can lose one or several limbs and even suffer from vision or hearing loss. The damage from personal injury accidents can cause you to experience catastrophic injuries.
Whether your injuries are temporary or permanent, they will cost you. They can cost you the medical procedures that you need to recover. They can cost you the time you will miss from work dealing with your injuries.
If you can prove that the other person was liable for your accident, that person may be responsible for paying your compensation. It’s not right for you and your family to pay for injuries at someone else’s expense.
A Lenox personal injury lawyer understands your injury claim’s importance and will fight for every bit of compensation you deserve. Our lawyers will do everything in their power to maximize the value of your case and deliver the results you need.
There are times when your injury prevents you from meeting in person. Our lawyers can continue to communicate directly with you and ensure all your paperwork is filed.
We can also use our expertise to determine the best strategy for your claim. Based on the results you need, we can decide whether you should settle with the defendant or reach a verdict at trial.
Many personal injury claims often end in a settlement. That means you need someone with excellent negotiation skills to help you with your claim. The insurance agents may appear cordial, but they want to avoid paying out your claim as much as possible.
Even with serious injuries, they may attempt to discredit you. A Lenox personal injury lawyer can effectively prove the defendant’s negligence. The greater you are at proving the defendant’s negligence, the more likely the insurance company may listen to you.
Your lawyer can also make sure that you receive what you are owed. Insurance agents are known for recommending low payouts to personal injury victims. Because many victims do not have the finances to wait for insurance companies, they will accept the low offer.
A Lenox personal injury lawyer can assess what your claim is worth and will not back down until you receive that compensation. If your injuries are permanent, you are automatically entitled to greater compensation, and we can make sure that you receive it.
