With so many cars on the road, automobile accidents are inevitable. We all hope we’re not involved in one. If you have been severely injured in an automobile accident that results in pain, suffering and economic loss, you may be entitled to sue for your personal injuries and financial losses.
It is important to note that pain and soreness from an accident may take time to show up. Medical testing of the injuries can also take a month or more to properly diagnose. Many insurance companies know about this time gap and may offer you a minimum settlement soon after the accident to avoid paying for the potential medical costs of the true, underlying injury diagnosed by doctors. Don’t accept any settlement or sign a release prior to seeking the advice of an attorney.
When you seek medical attention be sure to inform the doctors that your injuries are related to an automobile accident to ensure that your medical bills are covered by the appropriate No-Fault Insurance coverage, failing to do so may result in a medical lien against money that may be awarded to you.
If you are a construction worker, heavy equipment operator, sub-contractor or truck driver, you know that the workplace can be very dangerous. Whether you’ve fallen off a ladder or scaffolding or have been injured in any way while on the work site, you may be entitled to full compensation.
