In a world where everyone seems to be going through so much all at once, it can be too easy to minimize our struggles, ailments, injuries, and experiences. If you have been injured in a car accident, you may try to put on a brave face. You may try to downplay the pain or hurt you are going through. You may waffle back and forth about whether you should contact a lawyer to handle a claim. Hiring a lawyer can sound like such a big step, especially for those who have never done so before. To be clear, being in a car accident can be a difficult time and you will have to find a way to navigate life after such an experience, but it is not the time to push through on your own and put on a brave face. Get the medical care you need. Get the legal counsel you need. These are things that will have far-reaching impacts on your foreseeable future.
Is My Case Big Enough for a Lawyer to Handle?
If you have been injured in a car accident, you should talk to an attorney about your legal options for recovery. Even seemingly minor accidents with what you may think are minor injuries can have big impacts on your health, finances, and life in general. After being in a car accident, go get evaluated by a medical professional. The full force of your injuries and symptoms may not present at first, but will eventually. Seeking treatment for your injuries right away and getting consistent follow-up care can help the healing process and help you get your health back on track.
When you retain a personal injury attorney to handle your case, your attorney will fight for you to get full and fair compensation for your injuries. In a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Cost of future medical care
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
If you doubt whether your claim is big enough for a lawyer to handle, you are engaging in some high stakes gambling. Foregoing an attorney because you think your claim may be too small can be dangerous. If you end up filing a claim, you may settle for much less than your claim is actually worth. You also may find out later on that you actually have significant injuries from the accident, but then it will be too late to pursue compensation and you will be stuck with the bills.
Attorneys handle a wide range of personal injury cases. Not all cases will result in million dollar settlements, but that does not mean other cases are not important or valuable. The important part is that you take steps to protect your health and your legal rights. A personal injury attorney can help you do just that.
