Do You Know The Signs In Which You Need To Consult An Attorney?

Not every car accident, injury on the job, or other accident or injury is going to require the help of an attorney. Because of that, you might hesitate to contact an attorney after getting hurt. If you are unsure if an attorney can help you, ask yourself these three questions:

Was There Substantial Bodily Injury?

If you were involved in a car accident which was caused by someone else and which resulted in severe bodily injury including whiplash, broken bones, lacerations, and other injuries requiring hospital care, contacting an attorney is likely a good idea.

Falls or other injuries suffered while at work which result in severe bodily damage which leads to lost work days or medical care may also require the help of an attorney. Dog bites, falls in public locations, and other accidents which result in bodily injury may also be reasons for contacting a qualified attorney.

Was There Lasting Damage?

If an injury resulted in death, disability, brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, or other lasting negative consequences, you likely have a case. An attorney can help you understand exactly what rights you have concerning your injury.

Was Someone Else Clearly at Fault Due to Negligence?

If your own actions, especially your own negligence, led to your injuries, you may not have a case, but if someone else’s actions led to injury or death, seeking the help of an attorney is likely a good option. Negligence on another’s part could include inappropriate care at a nursing home facility, failure to yield at a stop sign, allowing unsafe work conditions, or other actions or lack of actions, which resulted in injury or death.

Of course, these are not the only reasons you may want to seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney. For more free legal advice, including a free case evaluation, contact us. Even if you are unsure if you have a case, we can help you understand your legal rights.
