How do I Know if I’m Eligible for Personal Injury Compensation?

What is a personal injury case and why are they sometimes necessary after you have sustained serious injuries? A personal injury case takes place when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else may be legally responsible for that harm. Usually, they are solved in settlement before court even occurs, but this is not always the case. So how do you know if you are eligible for compensation for your injuries, if you have been injured in a truck accident or on the job? We will go over the many signs that point to you gaining compensation after an injury.

Signs That You May be Eligible for Compensation  

Accident Wasn’t Your Fault: If you know that negligence played a role in your case, then you are a candidate for a successful lawsuit in many cases. Here are some common examples: Your car being rear-ended because somebody was texting and driving, somebody leaving damage on their sidewalk so you trip and fall, or an employer who does not supply necessary protective equipment to you.

Pain and Suffering Extends Beyond Physical Injuries: Physical injuries are not always the main thing you have to worry about. What if you also lose time at work, sustain masses of medical bills, and so much more? This adds worry to your plate and you should be able to receive compensation to cover these necessities. In many cases, bills begin to mount due to the aftereffects of an injury, so this is something to consider. 

No Liability Insurance: Perhaps an uninsured driver or an employer without workers’ comp insurance caused your injury and now you are wondering where to turn and how to receive compensation you deserve. You can pursue a personal injury claim in court to receive this compensation even in the hardest and trying times.

Now that you understand eligibility in personal injury cases, ask yourself: Do I have a claim? Do you have mounting bills due to an injury that you know was caused by negligence? Then you have a case and should give us a call today.
