Suppose one day your car is sideswiped by a driver running a red light in Buena Park and you incur injuries that require you to be rushed to the hospital and spend months recuperating and undergoing physical therapy before you can go back to work?
Or suppose that you are in a building owned by a large Buena Park corporation where a malfunction to the elevator, one that could have been caught with proper inspection and maintenance, causes you serious injury? Or suppose a neighbor’s dog, unrestrained by a fence or a leash, attacks your child, leaving them hospitalized for months?
In an each case, you or a loved one will have incurred a personal injury, one that can lead to serious medical expense, personal pain and the loss of the ability to go to work or school. The expenses associated with such an injury can be ruinous, driving you to bankruptcy or, worse, leaving you unable to afford proper treatment for the injury itself.
If the person whose negligence was responsible for the accident is insured, you may be offered a monetary settlement, but it’s unlikely that this settlement will even come close to paying for the damages that you have suffered. It’s an unfortunate fact of life that an insurance company doesn’t make its money by paying out fairly on claims. They make their money by paying as little as possible.
It’s unlikely that you can negotiate a fair claim on your own. You need a personal injury lawyer to help, someone who knows what’s fair, knows how to negotiate with insurance companies and other lawyers, and knows how to obtain the settlement that you deserve. If the accident took place in Buena Park, a Buena Park personal injury lawyer will know the Buena Park area and Orange County in general, and will be in the best position to fight for what is rightfully yours.
Don’t try to go it on your own. Negotiating a fair settlement in a personal injury case is a job for professionals. Locate a Buena Park personal injury lawyer via the Yellow Pages or an Internet search engine, schedule a free consultation with them, and decide if they are the right lawyer for you. And don’t wait. This is something that you should do as soon as possible after the accident that caused the injury. That’s when you need a lawyer by your side. It’s not a decision that you’re likely to regret.
