When You Need a Lawyer for Personal Injury Claims
With most personal injury cases, you should consult with an experienced attorney. But there are some cases in which hiring a Connecticut personal injury attorney can be an invaluable asset to your case. At Licari, Walsh & Sklaver, LLC we have dealt with many different types of personal injury situations, but here are a few in which we highly recommend you seek the aid of an attorney.
Long-Term or Permanent Disability Injuries
Some accidents cause significant injuries that can have a lasting affect on your capabilities or appearance—over a year or even permanently. Calculating the compensation an injury like that should be worth requires the knowledge and guidance of an experienced attorney. There are lifelong consequences to consider, such as careers, pain and suffering, as well as emotional effects like loss of consortium or depression.
The severity of your injury is usually determined according to the amount of your medical bills, the types of injuries incurred, and the length of time it requires to recover. As the amount of your potential compensation increases, so does the range of compensation. You may need an attorney because of the complex legal element of your case or simply because an insurance company refuses to settle fairly.
Medical malpractice is defined as injury or illness caused by the negligence (carelessness) or incompetent treatment from a doctor, nurse, hospital, laboratory, clinic, or other healthcare provider. If you have suffered from an experience of medical malpractice, the medical and legal questions involved are complex and specialized. You almost certainly need a lawyer with experience in medical malpractice cases to make sure that you receive the compensation and future treatment that you deserve.
Exposure to Toxic Chemicals
Injury claims of exposure can be difficult to prove and often involve complex scientific data. In addition, chemical and products industries have an army of legal staff to protect themselves from legal consequences. Make sure that you have an expert lawyer on your side as well to get the compensation you need.
When an Insurance Company Won’t Settle
Sometimes, regardless of your injury or the resulting financial issues, an insurance company or government agency responsible, refuses any fair settlement offers. In cases like this, it is best to hire an experienced attorney to fight with the law on your side.
