On Behalf of | Nov 15, 2021 | Firm News |

When you get into an auto accident or are hurt visiting friends or family, you need to know that you have an opportunity to seek compensation. You can start a personal injury claim, which is designed to help you get compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other financial losses that may impact you as a result of your injuries. A personal injury claim may also help you seek damages for pain and suffering and other factors involved in your case.

When your injuries are related to someone else’s mistakes and actions, you have a right to recover your damages. How you do that will vary based on the circumstances.

How to collect compensation after an auto collision

To start with, if you are involved in an auto collision and suffer injuries, you may be able to seek compensation by having your attorney negotiate with the other party’s insurance agency. If they did not carry car insurance or were not carrying much insurance, you may also be able to make a claim against your own insurance for coverage. Depending on the circumstances, you might even pursue a lawsuit.

Long-term, if you’ve worked for long enough, you may be able to seek Social Security Disability benefits to cover your financial needs if you cannot return to work.

How to collect compensation for a personal injury on someone else’s premises

If you are hurt on someone else’s property, such as at a grocery store or when you’re walking down the stairs of a residence, then you might be able to seek compensation from the person’s renter’s insurance, homeowner’s insurance or business insurance coverage. This will depend on where you were hurt, why you got hurt and the duty of care owed to you on that property.

There are plenty of things to think about when you want to make a claim after you get hurt. The severity of your injury as well as the cause of the injuries and situation leading up to those injuries will matter in your case. In any situation, you should be able to make a claim against another person if their actions resulted in your injuries.
