Personal Injury FAQ
Answers From A Philadelphia Injury Attorney
After a serious accident, you probably have a lot of questions running through your head. Laynas & Georges, P.C. understands how confusing and difficult your situation is and we are here to help. Below are answers to some common personal injury-related questions to get you started. We then recommend that you contact a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer to help you get started on a claim. The sooner you retain legal representation, the better your chances are of recovering fair compensation.
What Do I Need To Do After A Car Accident?
First, exchange information with the other driver(s) involved in the car accident. Only share your name, phone number, and insurance information-never admit fault. If a police officer writes up a report, be very careful what you say in your statement, because your words could be twisted in an attempt to prove that you were responsible for the accident.
Second, seek medical attention even if you don't feel like you're injured. Many signs and symptoms of injury do not appear until days or weeks later-sometimes even longer than that. By getting yourself checked out by a doctor, you can gather proof that you were injured and deserve to be compensated.
Lastly, hire a personal injury attorney. The sooner you have legal representation, the higher your chances will be of filing a successful claim and recovering the full amount of your damages.
How Do I Prove The Other Person Was Responsible?
Whether you were injured in an auto accident or by a negligent doctor, the key to any personal injury claim is to establish liability. To prove the other person was responsible, you will need to gather and preserve evidence of their negligence or recklessness. In car accidents, this evidence can include photos of the accident scene and your injuries, a copy of the police statement and witness accounts, doctors' notes, and the like. Other accidents and personal injury cases may require some investigation in order to gather sufficient evidence. Our firm can help with this entire process so that you can focus on healing.
What Compensation Am I Entitled To Receive?
Every personal injury claim is different. Every accident and injury involves different levels of damage, which means that it is not possible to determine the exact amount of compensation that your case deserves.
