Have you been injured in an accident? Was someone you love a victim of events that resulted in a personal injury? If so, and you live in the Seattle, Washington area, you need an Everett personal injury attorney on your side. An experienced attorney fighting on behalf of your interest understands what it takes to receive fair compensation for injuries.
If you are suffering from an injury and you do not sure what to do, here is what you should know:
Do not speak with insurance companies or representatives of insurance companies. Chances are anyone who tries to contact you is a lawyer representing the interests of those responsible for your accident. Their goal is to escape the situation with as little financial damage as possible. No matter how kind they might seem or how willing they might be to give you a settlement, they are not looking out for you.
Do not assume everything will be fine. It is human nature to crave homeostasis. Your goal after an accident is likely to just return to “normal.” This is understandable, but it might not be an option, at least for a long time. However, your focus should be on your health and your personal well-being during this time. Working with an experienced Everett personal injury attorney means someone is looking out for you, while your attention is on getting well.
Your case might not go to trial. Many victims are reluctant to hire an attorney because they assume the case will be dragged into court. They might want to get past the accident as quickly as possible, even if it means receiving less financial compensation than a trial would provide. You should not cheat yourself out of what you deserve because you want to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. Personal injury attorneys can represent you even if you decide to settle out of court. In many cases, victims walk away with more financial compensation in a settlement than if the case had gone to court.
You are entitled to complete compensation because of the accident. Whatever happened to you, it was not your fault. You should not have to pay medical costs or alter your way of living any more than absolutely necessary. Depending on the extent of your injuries you might be left with no other choice than finding a new way to live. If this is the case, you deserve to be compensated fairly. Working with a personal injury attorney can offset the damage done by an accident that was not your fault.
