Jamestown Injury Lawyers

If someone else’s negligence causes you or someone you love to be injured, the path toward recovery can be long and difficult. Obtaining just compensation for your physical, financial, and emotional losses, however, can help you reach your fullest recovery and move beyond this challenging experience. One of the most important steps you can take in this process is consulting with a dedicated Jamestown injury lawyer early in the process. 

Common Personal Injury Claims

Some of the most common personal injury claims fall into the following basic categories:

  • Traffic accidents, including car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents, dog bites, and other premises liability claims

Workers’ compensation claims (for injuries sustained on the job), wrongful death claims (for those who succumb to the injuries they suffer), medical malpractice claims, and nursing home abuse and neglect claims are all very similar to personal injury claims. 

The Elements of Your Claim

In order to bring a successful personal injury claim, the following specific elements must be met. 

  • The at-fault party had a responsibility to your safety, which is referred to as owing you a duty of care. A prime example is the duty of care we owe one another when we drive. 
  • The at-fault party neglected that responsibility – the way drivers who are distracted, impaired, drowsy, or aggressive do. 
  • You were injured as a result of the other party’s breach of responsibility.
  • You suffered losses that are addressed by personal injury law. 

The Losses You Experience

Personal injury law covers those losses experienced by accident victims in all the following categories:

  • Medical expenses, including current healthcare needs and those that are ongoing or that are expected to arise in the future as a result of the accident in question
  • Lost income, including any ongoing or permanent losses
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering

Protect Your Personal Injury Claim

You have been laid low by someone else’s negligence, which makes recovering for your full range of losses paramount. Your claim is unique to you and the situation at hand, but there are universal steps that all claimants should take to help protect their claims, including:

  • Follow your medical team’s instructions and advice carefully
  • Reach out and consult with an experienced injury lawyer early in the process and allow him or her to work with the insurance company on your behalf
  • Step away from social media until your claim is finalized (the insurance company will be mining for any information it can mold to its own purposes – making it better to be safe than sorry)
  • Don’t accept an early settlement offer until you’ve reviewed the matter with your lawyer (an early offer is likely an attempt to resolve your claim before you recognize the full extent of your losses)
