Knowing if you have a personal injury claim isn’t always easy to determine on your own. Whether or not you need to file a lawsuit in order to receive compensation for your injuries is a question best answered by an experienced personal injury attorney. However, there is some basic information that can help you decide if you might have a personal injury claim that should be pursued.
If your injuries were sustained as a result of the careless actions of another person or by some else’s negligent behavior, it is quite likely you have a personal injury claim. Your personal injury may be due to an auto accident, medical malpractice, a defective product or a slip and fall accident, just to name a few categories. No matter what type of accident caused your personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation if someone else caused the accident.
Once you establish that you do have a personal injury claim, you and your personal injury attorney can begin to discuss what damages you have. Compensation for damages may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages, present and future
- Medical bills, present and future
- Physical therapy
- Hospital or in-home care
- Property damage
