Accidents can occur, but when one happens that results in personal injury or death, an Injury Lawyer should be contacted immediately. They can help victims of personal injury, product liability, workers’ compensation and wrongful death accidents. They will file a lawsuit for justice on a victim’s behalf. A lawyer that handles these types of cases does not get paid unless they recover benefits or money for the victim. If a victim is unable to travel to their office, they can give them a free consultation over the telephone. If they agree to take the case, they will travel to the victim.
Many personal injury claims occur because of automobile accidents. They can also occur due to slip and falls and someone else’ negligence or carelessness. Defective or dangerous products cause injuries to people every year. This type of injury law is different than a personal injury claims because the laws are more lenient to recover damages. A manufacturer or seller can be held liable when they place a faulty or defective product in the hands of an end user. When the product defect causes injury, the seller of the product can be held financially liable.
Workers’ compensation is another type of law an Injury Lawyer can assist with. A worker that was injured on the job is entitled to wage and medical benefits and permanent partial disability. Wages will be paid at two-thirds of someone’s weekly wage. The maximum someone can receive is $550 per week. Benefits are not payable until a physician has placed someone on a no work status. An injured worker is not required to pay any type of deductible for their medical treatment when they’ve been injured on the job. An insurance company has 21 days to investigate the injury. Often times, they are slow in the process which will slow payment on the claim.
