A Guide to the Types of Injuries That Require a Lawyer, Columbia Falls, Montana

When you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, the other party’s insurer is financially responsible for your damages, including your medical expenses and lost wages. In some cases, you may be able to file a claim on your own, especially if your injuries were relatively minor, but many situations require the expertise of a skilled legal professional. Knowing when to call a personal injury attorney will help ensure you’re fairly compensated for your losses.

What Types of Injuries Call for a Personal Injury Attorney?

Serious or Disabling Injuries

personal injury attorneyThe more serious your injuries are, the more difficult calculating the full extent of your damages becomes. This is especially true if you’ve been permanently disabled or suffer consequences that require lifelong care. A personal injury attorney has the legal understanding to calculate the full extent of your damages and negotiate a fair settlement that covers your lost income and your medical expenses.

Medical Malpractice

When a doctor, nurse, or other health care provider fails to provide an accepted standard of care, patients often suffer disastrous consequences. Proving liability in these cases almost always requires expert testimony from medical professionals, which most victims don’t have access to. Established law firms possess the resources to compel insurers to make a fair offer or defend your rights in court.

Claims Insurers Refuse to Pay

Insurance companies often refuse to honor valid claims, in the hopes that you will simply accept the decision and give up your rights. If the insurer has already denied your claim, a law firm can leverage the threat of expensive, time-consuming litigation to force them back to the negotiation table.
