You may be eligible to file a personal injury case if you were hurt and you think that your harm was caused in whole or in part by someone else’s or a business’s negligence.

Is your wound serious?
Not all injuries necessitate hiring legal counsel. It can make sense to just handle it yourself if you have a relatively small injury and the time to process the insurance claims yourself. However, if your discomfort persists for more than a few days or if you believe your damage may be persistent, you should speak with a personal injury lawyer. You should speak with a lawyer if you have been hospitalized, need continued physical rehabilitation, or have other ongoing medical expenses.
Was someone else responsible for your injury?
No matter how severe your injuries, if someone else wasn’t at fault, you can’t sue them. You must consider whether it is possible to prove that someone else was at blame if there was. We can assist in gathering the necessary proof, so just because you don’t have it now doesn’t mean you can’t proceed. Call The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 to for a free legal consultation to learn more about your evidentiary alternatives.
Have you spoken with a person from the insurance provider?
To try and cut expenses, insurance companies employ representatives and adjusters. They frequently try to offer the lowest compensation for an injury. If an insurance representative has called you and asked for your statement, medical records, information release, or any other seemingly intimate information, you should get in touch with a lawyer.
Are you being given nothing or a small sum of money?
You should speak with a lawyer if the insurance company is attempting to postpone or refuse your settlement. You should speak with a lawyer if they are providing you with a significantly lower offer than you believe your case is worth. In the expectation that you will accept it, they can give you whatever little they want. They can be offering you less than you believe you are entitled to due to what appears to be a valid cause. Have no faith in them. To learn the whole story, speak with a lawyer.
Do you have legal training?
A personal injury lawyer is well-versed in the law. No matter how much research you undertake, you will never be able to catch up on decades’ worth of caselaw as a layperson. There are laws that you might not even be aware you need to look up.
The final line is that it is worthwhile calling for a free legal consultation if you have been harmed and think you might benefit from a personal injury attorney. Call 800-333-0000 right away to get in touch with The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker.
