Under the Personal Injury Law, a lawsuit can be filed by a person who has suffered bodily harm and/or mental harm as a result of a negligent act of another person. However, to a limited extent, damages may be received from the insurance by both parties disregarding who was at fault. Depending on the case, the claimant’s entitlements might be modified slightly in compliance with the relevant Act. In motor vehicle accidents, the party who is at fault may also be awarded statutory benefits while the victim who is not at fault can claim common law damages by way of lump sum compensation in addition to statutory benefits. In workers compensation claims, compensation may be awarded regardless of negligence. However, the employer still has to take preventive measures to eliminate the risk in the workplace as work injury damages might be charged against them in case of negligence.
Managing the process of personal injury claims
In personal injury claims, negligent action or lack of action should be proven by the claimant or their representative as these claims are based on liability. Frankly, the procedure is quite complex. Establishing the negligence, understanding the inherent risk and providing the necessary information and the documents might be overwhelming.
Your expectance should suit to the reality. But at the same time, you should secure your financial safety by way of compensation as permanent impairment reduces one’s capacity to earn drastically. It is near impossible to evaluate the case on your own. A quick search might persuade you that lack of knowledge, experience and professional competence might lead to unexpected and unfavourable results in the case.
Issue Management Skills
Once it is evaluated that the accident and injuries were not due to your negligence, your lawyer will not tolerate anything that might decrease the compensation you may receive. In other words, your rights will be protected and nothing less than what you rightfully deserve will be accepted.
You will be kept away from the process while your lawyer handles it. Many people are not aware how a single word coming out of your mouth might affect the claim. Easy-going people can be manipulated easily. A simple ‘’sorry’’ might be used against you and can be determined as accepting liability or partial fault.
Commitment to the Case
Feeling apprehension due to loss of income, concern for the future and family and feeling distress might lead you to lose your focus to the claim. On the other hand, personal injury claims demand strong attention. Giving procuration to a lawyer will be a smart choice so that you can focus on your daily life.
