Did another person’s negligence cause you injury? If so, you could be entitled to certain compensation for your damages and losses. Start the process of obtaining coverage for hospital bills, medical expenses, lost wages, property damages and much more with a personal injury claim.
The very first step to making a personal injury claim for your recent accident is already in the process, as you are reading this blog and learning what you need to know about getting started. The next step is to schedule your initial consultation with a seasoned and skilled personal injury attorney who is well-versed in the specific category of accident law that relates to your claim.
Continue below to learn the importance of this initial consultation, and where to find the most vigilant personal injury representation in Central Indiana and throughout Indiana.
Here are the reasons why your first personal injury evaluation will help you with your legal needs following an accident:
☑ They Confirm Merit
The primary reason why these evaluations are so vital in the beginning of the process is that they determine if your case is valid, or worthy of pursuing. Whether or not you actually have a merited case depends on a long list of factors; factors that only a seasoned personal injury lawyer will know. Such considerations include the state’s statute of limitations, prohibiting factors, total economic and non-economic losses, and much more. See our blog, “How Can I Tell Whether or Not I Have an Injury Case?” to learn more about assessing the strength of a personal injury claim. Once you have a legal professional on your side who knows you deserve to be compensated for your losses, you can feel confident knowing that someone will help you fight for your rights. Insurance companies have in-house attorneys on staff reviewing your claim and you should have your own attorney as well.
☑ They Educate You
You are probably not a lawyer yourself, which means that the law and related legalese can be quite confusing, if not entirely foreign to you. For this reason, it is important to have your case and the laws surrounding your case explained to you in a language you can clearly understand and comprehend. An initial personal injury consultation will provide this advantage. You can also refer to our blog, “A Review of Personal Injury Claim Terms and Definitions” to get a head start with some legal basics.
☑ They Offer Peace of Mind With No Obligation
If budget is holding you back from scheduling an initial evaluation with a personal injury attorney, you have no need to worry. Most personal injury law firms offer free initial consultations, which means there is no out-of-pocket obligation to you. So even if it is determined that you do not have a case, you will have peace of mind knowing that you learned the truth. Furthermore, if they take your case, there are usually no upfront lawyer fees since most firms work on a contingency-fee basis. See our blog, “How Much Does it Cost to Hire an Accident Lawyer?” to understand this pricing model better. The Law Office of Craven, Hoover, and Blazek P.C. does not charge upfront lawyer fees.
