Accidental Injury

A serious physical injury can affect earnings and quality of life for you and your family. It may cause a significant interruption in your normal lifestyle due to loss of work, substancial pain or disfigurement. The compensation you are entitled to receive often depends on the type of accident that caused your injury. For instance, there are different rules of recovery when the injury results from an automobile accident versus an on-the-job injury. To understand what rules apply to your situation, you should consult with an attorney.

Statues of Limitations

If you or a loved one has been injured, consulting an attorney is important for several reasons. First, each state has different time limits (or "statue of limitations") regarding how long you have to act and claim compensation for your injury. These limitations are particularly short when medical malpractice has caused the injury. If you do not act within these time limits, you may lose your right to make a claim for your injury. It's important to be aware of these limits because sometimes injuries which seem insiginficant when they occur may get much worse as time progresses.
