A personal injury claim is an important legal mechanism for helping to right a wrong. If you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you can seek justice in the form of compensation for your physical, financial, and emotional damages via a personal injury claim. If you have been so injured, don’t delay consulting with an experienced Riverside personal injury attorney.

Personal Injury Claims

No two personal injury claims are ever exactly alike, but there are specific basic elements that must be present to bring your claim, including:

The at-fault party owed you a duty of care

The at-fault party can be a motorist, a business owner or manager, a dog owner, an employer, or anyone else who is responsible for helping to protect the safety of others (in relation to their position).

The at-fault party failed to uphold his or her duty of care

When a motorist gets behind the wheel of his or her car, for example, that driver is responsible for sharing the road safely with other motorists, and if he or she fails to do so, the driver breaches his or her duty of care. Similarly, a business owner who fails to keep the premises in reasonably safe repair for his or her customers, clients, or other guests fails to uphold the duty of care owed.

The at-fault party’s negligence caused the accident in question

If you are injured in an accident that was caused by an at-fault party’s breach in his or her duty of care, you may have a viable personal injury case.

You suffered verifiable damages

Finally, you must be able to demonstrate that the at-fault party’s negligence caused you to suffer physical, financial, and/or emotional damages. These can include medical expenses, lost earnings, and/or physical and psychological pain and suffering.

If all of these elements relate to your claim, it’s time to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. If you aren’t sure if the accident you were injured in qualifies as a personal injury claim, reach out to a dedicated personal injury attorney to learn more.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

Nearly every personal injury claim begins with negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company. You’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence, and it’s only natural to assume that, while you focus on your recovery, you’ll allow the insurance company to do its job and compensate you for the damages you’ve suffered. Unfortunately, it’s rarely this straightforward.

When it comes to the insurance company involved, it’s important to remember that it’s a for-profit company that is adept at generating profits. Some of the techniques it may employ in your case to help ensure robust profits can include:

The insurance company may deny your claim outright in the hope you will give up in discouragement.

The insurance company may offer you a speedy settlement offer that fails to address the full spectrum of physical, financial, and emotional damages you’ve suffered. Such an offer is generally made in the hope that you will accept it out of gratitude (considering the medical expenses and lost wages you are likely facing) before you recognize how woefully inadequate the offer actually is. You are well-advised not to accept an insurance company’s settlement offer until after you’ve consulted with an experienced personal injury attorney.

The insurance company may stall or complicate the claims process in an effort to frustrate you to the point that you lose interest or simply give up.

The insurance company may attempt to misdirect fault toward you and away from the at-fault party (their client).

Whatever the insurance company throws your way, your resourceful personal injury attorney has experienced it before and is well prepared to continue defending your rights in pursuit of just compensation. Ultimately, you are not required to provide a statement to the insurance company, and it’s in your best interest to allow your accomplished personal injury attorney to communicate with the insurance representative on your behalf.

Assessing Your Full Range of Damages

One of the most important tasks in any personal injury claim is assessing and addressing the full scope of the victim’s damages. If this isn’t accomplished, you’re unlikely to obtain the compensation you need to reach your fullest recovery. Consider all of the following damage categories:

Medical Expenses

If you’ve been seriously injured, you’re facing serious medical expenses, and your bills are likely piling up. Medical care is notoriously expensive, and serious injuries often develop into secondary health concerns that have overarching implications. In other words, it’s unlikely that your medical concerns and costs are going to come to a complete halt anytime soon. Medical expenses can range from early costs such as emergency care and transportation through to surgery and hospitalization and on to treatment from doctors and specialists, physical therapy and rehabilitation, prescription medications, adaptive physical devices, and beyond.

Lost Wages

Serious injuries translate to lost hours on the job, which in turn translate to lost wages. Watching your costs rise while your pay decreases can be especially disheartening and difficult. Further, if your injuries stop you from returning to your job at full capacity, you could face a decrease in earning potential into the future. An altered career trajectory can be as emotionally crippling as it is financially difficult.

Pain and Suffering

Physical injuries are very physically painful, but they can also be exceptionally painful emotionally. Facing the fact that your life has been altered (possibly irrevocably) as a result of someone else’s negligence can lead to serious emotional hardship. Further, the long journey toward recovery ahead is likely to be arduous and emotionally fraught. Never underestimate the emotional pain and suffering wrought by a personal injury claim.
