Protect Your Vital Rights After an Accident with a Detroit Personal Injury Lawyer
In the United States, including in and around Detroit, there are over 31
million emergency room visits each year for accidental injuries, according
to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A considerable
percentage of these accidents are the result of the negligence of someone else.
A shocking 136,000 people are killed each year in accidents in the country.
This includes about 36,000 individuals who die in automobile accidents
on U.S. roadways.
If you have found yourself injured because of someone else's negligence,
you need to have a basic understanding of your legal rights and interests
following an accident. You also need to better understand how a Detroit
personal injury lawyer, like an attorney from The Doan Law Firm, can fight
to protect those vital legal rights and interests.
Common Types of Accidents that Result in Personal Injury
The two most common types of accidents that result in injuries to Michigan
residents are automobile and slip and fall accidents. These types of accidents
oftentimes can result in very serious, even disabling injuries.
Other types of accidents or incidents that give rise to personal injuries
include food contamination, assaults, and product defects. These are also
types of personal injury cases that can give rise to significant injuries.
Get the Money You Must Have After an Accident
After ensuring that you obtain proper immediate, and more long-term, medical
care and treatment, your focus must be on ensuring that an injury causes
you no unnecessary financial harm. You injuries may have already upended
your life. The situation need not be aggravated because of the financial
impact someone else's negligence has on you.
A Detroit accident lawyer has the depth of experience necessary to ensure
that you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled. The nature
and extent of recovery that may be available to you to compensate for
your injuries, losses, and damages, depends on the specific circumstances
of your case.
With that understood, a skilled personal injury lawyer can fight to ensure
that you obtain compensation for different types of losses that include:
- medical bills and expenses
- pain and suffering
- lost wages
- emotional distress
- permanent bodily injury
- property damage
A Detroit injury lawyer also understands the crucial importance of making
sure that you recover compensation not only for existing losses, but also
for those you reasonably can be expected to incur in the future. Medical
treatment and therapy may continue well into the future. Pain and suffering
may not abate any time soon. You may have difficulty returning to your
job full time in the immediate future. All of these represent examples
of why you need to obtain compensation for future losses as part of an
insurance claim settlement of judgment in a personal injury lawsuit.
Fighting Insurance Companies
A sad reality about the aftermath of an injury-causing event is not only
dealing with medical issues, but you very well may find yourself battling
an insurance company as well. The bottom line is that an insurance company,
including an automobile or homeowners insurer, is in business to make
money. The less that is paid out in claims, the more an insurance company
makes in profits for its shareholders,
A key reason why you need to be as proactive as possible in engaging a
Detroit accident lawyer is to ensure that your interests are protected
in the face of an aggressive, uncaring insurance conglomerate. You greatly
enhance the prospect of obtaining a fair and just settlement of your injury
claim with a lawyer from The Doan Law Office at your side.
