When an accident results in catastrophic losses, this is considered a serious personal injury case. Serious injuries can include brain damage, debilitating or life-altering physical injuries, emotional scarring and Wrongful Death. In serious injury cases, victims and their families often have to deal with unbearable pain and, in some cases, the loss of a loved one.

Following a Serious Injury
When a serious injury occurs due to the actions or negligence of another person or entity, the insurance companies are often involved. Too often are accident victims asked to sign documents that they don’t understand or are forced to give recorded statements that can ultimately affect their ability to receive compensation for their expenses.
Reaching a fair injury settlement with an insurance adjuster can be a very tedious and frustrating experience. It can be very difficult to navigate without the help of an experienced legal professional who has your best interests at heart.
Important Tips to Remember
The steps you take after a serious injury can seriously affect your ability to receive fair compensation for your losses. After suffering an injury due to no fault of your own, it is important to remember the following:
- Never sign a release or give a recorded statement until you have consulted with an attorney.
- Don’t wait to speak to a law firm. The sooner you begin the legal process, the better chances you have of recovering losses.
- Remember to document everything related to the accident, including the contact information of other parties and witnesses to the accident and photographs of the scene and of injuries.
