What is a Personal Injury Claim?

Written by award-winning Injury Lawyer Larry Lapidus

If you have suffered a personal injury, you might find yourself faced with the task of filing a personal injury claim. The goal is to get a fair and reasonable settlement for a wide range of things, including medical bills, loss of employment wages, and pain and suffering, and so much more. 

A personal injury attorney at The Lapidus Law Firm can help you with your claim by challenging the insurance companies if they aren’t offering a favorable settlement.

Common Causes of Personal Injuries 

Personal injuries can occur anywhere at anytime. Our clients come to us with injuries sustained in a variety of different ways, and some most common include:

  • Car accidents 
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Fall and injury accidents in stores and parking lots
  • Animal attacks (including dog bites)
  • Bed bug injuries
  • Medical malpractice

If you have suffered any of the above injuries, our professionals at The Lapidus Law Firm are here to inform you of your rights and speak with you to determine your best chances at obtaining a successful, fair settlement. 

Additionally, we also represent families whose loved one has lost their life because of someone else’s negligence.  This is referred to as a wrongful death claim, and our job is to ensure the victim’s family receives a fair and reasonable settlement on behalf of their loved one.

What to Expect From Personal Injury Claim

Once you have hired one of our experienced, skilled attorneys, we will follow a careful procedure to ensure all the legal aspects of your case fall in line. Keep in mind that the entire litigation process can take a significant amount of time, but it is our firm’s priority to move through each step as quickly and efficiently as possible with one goal:  to reach favorable settlement terms. 

In some cases, we are able to reach a favorable settlement in a matter of weeks. However, in other situations, things can become a bit challenging if the insurance company refuses to fulfill its moral obligations.  This is yet another reason why it is imperative that you have a skilled attorney on your side.

Without a great personal injury lawyer who knows the laws surrounding your case, the insurance adjusters can “duck” the laws and their moral and legal responsibilities.  Alternatively, your legal team – when experienced and skilled – will use its knowledge in working toward getting you the largest fair and reasonable settlement possible.
