Personal Injury


Posted By on Aug 15, 2017

After a horrible accident, the most important thing is recovery. The injuries that an accident can cause are devastating and deserve medical attention and time to heal. However, paying for the medical attention is a heavy burden. There is no way of knowing when, where, and how an accident can happen, so a person may not always be financially ready when it does happen. Finding a lawyer for help with legal advice after the accident is always a good idea. Personal injury lawyers, such as those at Brunkenhoefer P.C., can cover a wide range of accidents:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Product liability
  • Wrongful death
  • Construction accidents
  • Gas field injuries
  • Longshoreman accidents
  • Maritime accidents
  • Oilfield accidents
  • Plant & refinery accidents

When choosing a lawyer, take their experience, training, and background into account. An expert in one field may not make for the best in another. For example, immigration lawyers may not be the best choice to fight for a personal injury case.

In dealing with an accident, getting a lawyer that will cover the paperwork aspect so that the victim and their loved ones have time to heal is one of the best decisions. If the lawyers can prove another party involved in the accident was negligent, then the victim can receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and for some personal property damage that may have happened in the accident.

Time is very important in this process. If the victim waits to long to file the lawsuit, the case may reach its statute of limitations, forcing the victim to forfeit all their rights to any compensation.
