Ross Personal Injury Lawyers
Though Ross residents know how to be careful, not every accident is always avoidable. Personal injury accidents, from falling in a grocery store to getting in a car accident, happen all the time. But how do you know when your accident and subsequent injury warrant a lawsuit? That’s where our Ross personal injury lawyers at Chaffin Luhana come in.
A personal injury lawyer will work closely with you to determine if negligence was involved in your accident, who is liable, and how best to proceed with a personal injury lawsuit case to help you achieve the best possible outcome and maximum compensation.
Auto Accidents (FAQs)
Whose fault is it?
One of the biggest parts of a personal injury case is determining who is at fault, or liable. The only way to do this is to gather and analyze the evidence from the case. This evidence varies from case to case and can be anything from eyewitness accounts and CCTV footage to expert testimony, physical evidence from the scene, and background information.
As the evidence is vital in a case, it’s imperative that you do your best to not change or touch the scene in any way until police or your lawyer can investigate.
Immediate steps to take after an accident:
The first thing you should do after an accident is to call first responders, be it an ambulance to deal with an injury or police to deal with gathering evidence and filing a report.
The second thing you should do is get any necessary medical attention. First of all, there is nothing more important than your health and safety. Second, not seeking immediate medical treatment after an accident can sometimes reduce the amount of money you can recover in a lawsuit.
Third, you should do your best to remove yourself from any potential confrontations with the liable party. There is no need to discuss injuries, emotions or fault with anyone except your lawyer or a responding police officer.
Call a lawyer
As soon as you’ve done those three things, you need to call a lawyer. Your lawyer will immediately begin to gather evidence and build a case, which is all easier to do if the accident is recent. The longer you wait to call a lawyer, the less likely it will be that he or she will be able to gather sufficient evidence to make a successful claim.
Also, Ross has statute of limitations in place that put a time limit on how long you can wait to file a personal injury claim. Again, the longer you wait the harder it will be to be awarded the compensation you deserve for your injuries and suffering.
