Hit by a Car? Make a Claim

 
If you’ve sustained injuries as a result of being hit by a car, Sokoloff Lawyers can help you with your claim. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, whether as a pedestrian or a driver, an insurance claim can compensate you for your injuries. Teaming up with an experienced and fair team of law professionals experienced in personal injury law is your best way to take an appropriate course of legal action when negotiating a superior financial settlement.
 

How Can I Make a Claim?

 
In order to receive reparation for catastrophic injuries as a result of a traffic accident, lawyers must prove that the person, or persons, who caused said injuries owe a duty of care for your well being.  You are entitled to make a claim, for example, if you have been hit by a car while stepping onto a crosswalk and have been disabled, either permanently or temporarily as a result.
 
When negotiated properly by an experienced law firm, your claim will be able to cover any psychological and physical losses, including both past and future costs. This also includes all medical expenses, including, but not limited to, medication, home health care, rehabilitation and private nursing. Also subject to remuneration is any loss of earnings from having to take leave from your job while recuperating, damage to your vehicle or person, as well as pain and suffering.
 
How much you can claim depends on a multitude of factors. Your age, how much care you require, and for how long, the total amount of lost wages and the severity of your injuries are all determining factors in identifying a fair sum for your compensation.
 
Attempting to tackle the legal process of making a claim without the assistance and expertise of a legal professional is not advised. Doing so will undoubtedly leave you tangled in a web of red tape from the courts, paperwork that does not make sense to the average person. It will also leave you at the mercy of defense lawyers who may have less than righteous motives and who routinely make it normal practice to place blame on the innocent party.
 
Another benefit of appointing lawyers to act on your behalf has to do with the timeline of your trial. Trials without legal assistance may draw out for long periods of time, which is not only frustrating, but may also impede your ability to recover from your injuries. Trained lawyers are also adept at expediting the process of not only making a claim, but also making sure that all settlements are upheld to the letter. Oftentimes, guilty parties will try to find loopholes in the court system, which could indefinitely delay your financial compensation for damages sustained. Stay on the fast track with trained professionals.
