How Can I Protect My Rights?
Bear in mind that it’s difficult to tell how serious an injury is at the beginning. Doctors may say it will get better in weeks to find out later that there are complications. Because of this, we recommend you do two important things to protect your rights:
Do NOT take money from an insurance company or even sign any paperwork. Often people who took the money the insurance company offered realized they would need more treatment, costing far more than the coverage. The reason insurance businesses offer cash immediately is because they wish to settle your claim and give you the smallest amount possible. Never sign anything, or take a check, unless you have first consulted with a lawyer.
DO visit a lawyer right away. You get the information you want to make a smart decision when you consult with a lawyer. It may be the most important thing you do following an injury. A lawyer can tell you if you have a claim that is solid and be certain that you receive a medical evaluation. Insurance company offers will increase substantially when you have a lawyer working for you.
How Can I Tell if My Claim Is Valid?
In the event that you were hurt and it wasn’t your fault, you may have a claim. Injuries do not usually just happen, many accidents occur because someone else has been”negligent,” meaning they were not as cautious as they should have been. This can be true in slip and fall accidents and vehicle crash injuries. Negligence does not indicate that someone wanted to hurt you, but it will mean that the insurance provider of the negligent party is responsible for the injuries. Our lawyers in the city of Canton are here to assist you with the legal process.
