3. Treatment Focus On Treatment
Let us take care of everything while you focus on treatment. Our paralegals and attorneys take detailed notes of any pain you've felt as a result of your accident. Our #1 priority is making sure you get better. While you treat for your injuries, you can rest assured that we're handling your case for you behind-the-scenes. We'll keep you in the loop for any changes in your case and check-in with you to make sure your treatment is going well.
4. Investigation Gather The Facts
We'll deep dive into all the facts of your case. We will take over communicating with the insurance companies involved, gather all evidence, including police reports and video, 911 audio, incident reports, and more, and protect all evidence to refer to later in the case. We'll also gather your medical records to help prove your case. This will form the foundation of your demand for settlement.
5. Demand Calculate and Itemize Your Damages
Here, we'll put together a demand package for the insurance adjuster that includes every financial and physical damage you've sustained since your incident. This will encompass things like medical bills, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses, and even the cost of any future medical treatments you require because of the incident. Once you approve it, we'll send this demand to the insurance company, and begin negotiations. You'll be involved in this entire process, so you'll always know where you stand during these negotiations.
Common Causes of Personal Injuries
Doctors and other medical professionals are human, and make mistakes. Unfortunately, those mistakes may result in additional costly medical procedures, longer recovery time, or worse. Often, these mistakes are covered up, and the patient is left to pay for treatment that should not have been necessary, without having been told what actually happened. If you believe a medical professional has made an error, talk to an injury lawyer right away. Your lawyer can access your records and get the information that might prove that a mistake was made.
If you are injured in an assault, robbery, or some other crime, the criminal will be subject to prosecution and may face jail time, probation, or other punishment. In addition, there may be other responsible parties (landlord, property owner, security company) that may also be subject to a civil suit by the victim for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages, whether the criminal is caught or not.
People are injured every day by faulty products. An automobile accident may have been caused by faulty brakes or signals; an electrical appliance may catch on fire; a child may choke on a loose part on a toy. Finding the responsible party and proving that the product was unsafe is one of the jobs of an injury lawyer.
When you hire an injury lawyer you are creating a relationship that may last for weeks, months, or even years. You need someone who can treat you with compassion, listen to your concerns, and work with you. You also need someone who is willing and able to go to court to protect your rights if necessary. You can talk to an attorney at Brooks Injury Law that is passionate about helping injured people get the compensation they deserve.
