What Should I Do If I Have Suffered a Personal Injury?
After an accident injures you, it’s generally important to do as much of the following as possible:
- Report the accident to the proper authorities.
- Get emergency medical attention if needed.
- Take pictures of the accident scene.
- Keep everything you have related to the incident (photos, accident reports, etc.).
- Report the facts of the accident to the insurance company (if applicable).
- Comply with all prescribed medical treatments.
- Get a free case evaluation to find out more about your legal options.
If you or a loved one has been seriously harmed and have limited capacity to take all of the above steps, the single most important thing to do after an accident will be to contact an attorney at Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, P.C.
What Type of Evidence Can Support My Claim?
The evidence necessary to prove your claim will depend on the nature of the accident and negligence involved. Generally, this may include (and is not at all restricted to):
- Accident reports
- Pictures of the accident scene and injuries
- Medical documentation, like doctor’s bills and diagnostic test results
- Correspondence from insurance companies
- Property repair bills.
Should I Accept a Settlement Offer from an Insurance Company?
No, you should not automatically accept or reject any settlement offer until or unless the offer has been carefully reviewed to assure that it properly compensates you. An attorney can review these offers and give you no-nonsense advice regarding whether you should accept them, make a counteroffer or take some other action.
What Type of Compensation Is Available for My Claim?
The specifics of your case will dictate the damages available for your claim. While our lawyers can give you more details regarding the value of your claim, in general, the compensation for personal injury cases can include damages for:
- Medical care and rehabilitation
- Lost income and/or lost earning capacity
- Damaged or destroyed property.
In addition to these types of compensatory damages, punitive damages may also be awarded for some personal injury claims.
