Parkland Personal Injury Attorney
Insurance companies know that victims of car crashes, slip and falls, and medical malpractice are all in need of serious financial assistance as soon as possible. They use this to their advantage when their insured is at fault for causing your injuries, and are quick to reach out with their condolences and a small cash offer. Make no mistake, this financial offering is most likely just the tip of the iceberg that you would otherwise be able to recover if you hold out. Do not accept any offer from an insurance company or any other party before at least talking to a Parkland personal injury attorney—you will be giving up your right to file a personal injury claim for the full cost of your damages if you do so.
Most Personal Injury Cases Settle Out of Court
Barry S. Mittelberg is an experienced litigator with an impressive record in court. While most personal injury cases are settled out of the courtroom, it is important to hire an experienced attorney who insurance adjusters have heard of, dealt with before, and lost trials to. This increases your chances of settling for a fair amount, as opposed to being presented with low offers and threats to drag the case out in court. We encourage you to call the Law Offices of Barry S. Mittelberg to set up a free case evaluation and consultation before you discuss anything with an insurance company. Anything that you say to them over the phone can be used to harm your claim, even if what you said was unintentionally inaccurate or taken out of context.
What Damages Can I Recover?
Depending on the specifics of your injuries, you may be able to recover some or all of the following types of damages:
- Medical expenses and cost of future rehabilitative care or future surgeries;
- Lost wages and earning capacity;
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental anguish or emotional distress;
- Loss of quality of life due to a debilitating injury, permanent scarring, or disfigurement;
- Property damage; and
- Punitive damages in some cases.
Why an Attorney is Necessary
Proving negligence is a requirement of collecting compensation from the party who you believe caused the injury. That party, as well as their insurance company, are sure to put up a fight and deny liability by blaming you or a third party. An attorney will gather the evidence and witness testimony to put these claims to bed. Additionally, an attorney will fight back against allegations made by insurance companies that claim your damages are not as bad as you say. It takes time to assess the true nature of a victim’s damages. After all, according to a recent study one in four whiplash victims end up suffering long term chronic pain—pain that causes lost joy of life that may not be fully realized for many months later. The cost of future care for severe disabilities must be taken into account, particularly since healthcare costs have risen so dramatically in the past few decades. From 1990 to 2018, the cost of healthcare as a percentage of GDP rose by nearly six percent, according to Statista. For all these reasons, and more, you need an experienced attorney on your side.
