Why Do I Need an Attorney for My Personal Injury Case?
An attorney may be able to provide you with a better chance of recovering compensation than if you were to file a claim on your own. In fact, statistics show plaintiffs with representation recover over three times more compensation in personal injury cases those without a lawyer.
Insurance companies can be difficult to deal with, and they rarely pay out adequate injury settlements if they avoid it. Similarly, personal injury litigation can be complex, and without a thorough knowledge of the court system, it may be difficult to secure the money award you deserve.
Our attorneys at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP have dedicated decades of their lives to representing victims in all types of personal injury and medical malpractice claims. We know the ins-and-outs of these cases, and are able to effectively handle them while our clients focus on recovering.
What Compensation Am I Entitled to In My Case?
That depends on the circumstances of your accident, but in general, a successful claim can award financial compensation for the economic and non-economic damages suffered by victims. This can include compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- ER, hospital, and medical bills
- Rehab / therapy expenses
- Future medical needs
- Loss of income and future wages
- Loss of quality or enjoyment of life
- Loss of companionship and consortium
- Property damage
- Other damages
Our attorneys have earned a reputation for helping clients obtain the compensation they need and deserve. We take into account all the ways that injuries have impacted our clients and their families, as well as how they are likely to affect them in the future. With this, we fight for the maximum recovery possible.
How Long Will it Take for My Case to Be Resolved?
This depends on many factors, including the injuries you have sustained, the severity of those injuries, and the number of other people involved in the accident.
An insurance company may be willing to pay you a fair settlement in a matter of days, weeks, or months. If a fair settlement from the insurance company is not forthcoming, or if legal action in a court is necessary, it may take years for you to reach a resolution in your case. Hiring an attorney will serve to increase the likelihood of a case that is resolved in an efficient manner.
