When a person is injured, the last thing they should have to worry about is what their legal rights and obligations are. However, if someone else was responsible for the injury, then you might have to think about this. One of the first questions victims often have is: Do I need to call a personal injury attorney? In truth, it depends on several factors – three of which are listed below. If you have further questions, or want to request a free consultation, call The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000.
- Someone Was Seriously Injured
- The Liability Issues Are Complex
- The Defendant is a Corporate Entity
There are two things that are almost always present in cases of catastrophic injury. First, it is likely that there will be excessive medical bills well beyond what the insurance company covers. Second, it is likely that the victim will have life-long effects form the injury. Both of these issues mean that extra compensation is necessary, and it is unlikely that an insurance company is going to offer a settlement that covers the actual damages.
In California, it is possible for more than one person to be held responsible for the same accident and injury. There are pros and cons to this. The advantage is that you might have more than one insurance company to pursue for compensation for your damages. The drawback is that this can get complex – especially if you are partially at fault.
While it is good that a person who is partially responsible for an accident can still sue a party that is more at fault, it can be difficult to prove the percentage of fault. All sides of this argument are going to have different versions of what happened and it is essential that you have a legal professional on your side.
If you are suing a corporation then you will absolutely want an attorney on your side. You can assume that the corporation is going to have at least one, if not a team of attorneys on their side. They are likely to have extensive experience that you cannot battle on your own. You need an attorney who has fought corporate clients like them in the past.
