Assisting Individuals in Plainfield with Complex Personal Injury Claims

Possible injuries suffered in an accident can include soft tissue injuries, broken bones, paralysis, head injuries, and even death in the event of a serious accident. When these injuries come about as a result of someone else’s negligence, they become legally compensable. 

The Plainfield personal injury attorneys at Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., understand the pain, suffering, and inconvenience that often result from serious accidents and personal injuries. Our legal team can help you file a claim against all potentially responsible parties and work to negotiate a settlement on your behalf. In the event the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to offer you a reasonable settlement amount, our team welcomes the opportunity to litigate your case in the court system, or even take your case to trial if that becomes necessary. Contact us online to learn more about how we could assist you with your personal injury case. 

Steps to Take Following Your Accident

If you have been involved in an accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence, the first thing that you should do is obtain medical treatment as soon as possible. This might mean following up at a local urgent care facility or a hospital emergency room. It might also mean seeking treatment with your primary care doctor if you can get an appointment quickly. 

Initial medical treatment following an accident is extremely important. First, it can help to prevent a relatively minor injury from becoming a more serious injury. It also shows the insurance company that you are taking your medical condition seriously and that you likely suffered an injury in the accident. After seeking your initial medical treatment, you should follow up with a Plainfield personal injury lawyer for help handling the legal aspects of your case. 

How a Lawyer Can Help

There are many ways that an experienced Plainfield personal injury lawyer can assist you following your accident. Specifically, a personal injury lawyer can help you with all of the following:

  • Gathering up all of your medical records and bills after you have finished treating for your injuries and submitting a demand package to the insurance company for an adjuster’s review
  • Working to negotiate a settlement offer of your claim by going back and forth with the insurance company – and making a recommendation about whether or not a particular settlement offer is worth accepting or rejecting under the circumstances
  • Filing a lawsuit in the court system on your behalf, in the event the insurance company refuses to offer a reasonable amount of money to settle your personal injury case
  • Litigating your case through the court system and assisting with written discovery, depositions, and other aspects of the discovery process
  • Recommending your likelihood of success at trial and assisting you at trial if you opt to go that route
  • Recommending certain alternative dispute resolution measures, such as mediation or arbitration, as an alternative to trial and assisting you throughout those processes

A knowledgeable Plainfield personal injury lawyer can help you handle all of the legal aspects of your case while you concentrate on recovering from your injuries and getting back to work.

Individuals who have suffered injuries in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence still have the burden of proof in any personal injury claim or lawsuit that is filed. When the accident victim is able to meet this burden, he or she could obtain monetary compensation for all of the medical bills and expenses resulting from the accident, in addition to lost income. Accident victims could also pursue compensation for their pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of use of a body part, and loss of family support or spousal companionship.
