What should I not do after suffering an organ injury?
One of the things that we prevent our clients from doing is speaking to insurance companies immediately after suffering an internal organ injury. Insurance companies will always try to get to you after an accident, and get some type of statement from you. They will either try to use this statement against you to downplay their liability or offer a very low settlement offer. The offer may seem like a large amount at first, but insurance companies do not always compensate you for all of the damages.
Organ injuries will almost always require future treatment. That is why hiring an attorney will make sure that you get the compensation you deserve. Our accident attorneys have been negotiating with insurance companies for years, and understand the different types of tactics they use. Call us today.
How much do our organ injury attorneys cost?
Our organ injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. We understand that nobody has financial compensation readily available to hire the attorney and pay them upfront. That is why we do not get paid until our clients get paid. This means that until we win the settlement or judgment in our client’s favor, we will not collect any compensation.
When should I file my organ injury lawsuit?
Every state has a statute of limitations. In California, a person who wants to file a lawsuit against a negligent party after suffering organ injuries must file their lawsuit within 2 years from the date of the accident. Many may forget to file their lawsuit, and will lose the right to file the lawsuit and seek compensation. For more information on the statute of limitations time period in California, contact our experienced accident attorneys today.
Construction Accidents and Internal Bleeding
Construction accidents are one of the most common causes of internal organ damage. One of the main reasons is because there are several tools lying around at construction sites, and many construction workers are not experienced and may not be able to use the tool properly. This may result in losing control of the tool, and causing severe accidents.
