Working To Obtain Full Compensation For Your Injuries
Personal injury is always a shock. No one gets in their car and expects to be injured in a car or truck accident or go for a walk in their neighborhood and suffer a dog bite. Compound that surprise with suddenly having to deal with medical treatment, insurance companies and their inevitable lawyers, and it can all be rather overwhelming.
At DeBerry Law Firm, LLC, I understand. I know how disorienting it can be for my injured clients to handle all the details. I can help take some of the stress of the situation off your shoulders. I know how to deal with insurance companies and work to obtain the compensation you need to recover from your injuries after an accident.
Personal Injuries May Arise From A Wide Variety Of Incidents
The category personal injury encompasses a large number of cases, including
- Motor vehicle crashes
- Dog bite cases
- Hit a deer
- Pool drownings
- Uninsured Motorist
- Falls caused by negligence in stores, restaurants and parking lots
Negligence Causing Injury
If you have been injured by someone’s negligence, you may be able to obtain compensation. Negligence occurs when someone has a duty to prevent harm, but fails to do so. A driver has a duty to operate their vehicle in a safe manner. A store has a duty to keep their aisles clean and dry to prevent trips, slips and falls. A dog owner has a duty to prevent their dog from escaping their yard and injuring passers-by.
These cases are often complex and I can discuss your facts and explain your options and your potential for recovery. With any injury case, it is essential that you receive medical attention as soon as possible. It is also important to work with an attorney as soon as you are able, as evidence can be lost or disposed of, and memories of witnesses can fade.
Time Is Limited
It is important not to delay taking action, as there are “statutes of limitations” on most actions that will prevent your filing a case if you wait beyond the statutory deadline. These deadlines vary by the type of case, but may be as short as two or three years. Failure to act before that deadline will mean you will lose any chance of obtaining compensation for your injuries from the negligent party.
