How a Personal Injury Case Works

Again, we handle very serious cases of personal injury that involve a lot of damage. 

The people involved in a personal injury claim are as follow:

  1. You, the injured party; also known as the plaintiff 
  2. Your North Carolina personal injury lawyer
  3. The person or entity responsible for your severe injuries; also known as the defendant or liable party
  4. The insurance company representing the liable party

The case starts with your serious injury. That may have happened in a workplace accident, you may have been severely hurt in a truck accident, or you were a victim of medical malpractice, etc. 

From there you MUST go to get medical care. You’re likely in a ton of pain. You may have even been taken to the emergency room on an ambulance. Any way you see it, you still have to get yourself to a doctor. It could be the emergency room, urgent care facility, or your primary doctor. 

The next thing that typically happens is you reach out to your North Carolina personal injury lawyer to set up a consultation. You are going to want to find someone who has experience handling a case as severe as yours. These cases are complicated and you don’t want someone who is just trying to get your case over with. H Bright Lindler wants you to be represented by a lawyer who knows how to navigate the challenges of these types of cases.

So you go to the doctor and you have a lawyer ready to go. Now you bring your claim. You gather all necessary documents you need, get the treatment your body needs, investigate the scene of the accident, and so on. You will be bringing the claim against the person or entity that caused the accident that you were severely harmed in.

In essence, this claim should cover your damages. They will try to get rid of your claim or reduce what they owe you. Your lawyer has the task of fighting them to protect your rights to a fair result.

The case could settle or it might have to go all the way to trial. Be sure your North Carolina personal injury lawyer is up to the task.

Things You Don’t Want to Do When You Bring a Claim

You have some power in these cases to get the results that you deserve. Understand that the insurance company is the group who are supposed to be compensating you for your damages and they are the same people who want to get rid of your case. That’s why you have to be very careful with what you do.

There are three main things that you need to be careful about:

  1. Getting medical care and treatment in a timely manner
  2. Admitting to guilt to anyone
  3. Giving the insurance company a recorded statement

First, you need to understand how important it is that you get the medical care you need as soon as possible. If for some reason you weren’t taken on an ambulance to the emergency room, you are going to have to get yourself to an urgent care or an emergency visit into your primary care doctor. The consequences of not doing this right away are twofold:

  • your condition will likely get worse which means you stay in pain
  • the insurance company becomes suspicious of you

If the insurance company sees a gap in treatment, they are automatically going to become suspicious of your claim. They won’t care that you are a parent who needed to care for their kids or you are worried about missing time at work. They will say that you were lying about your injuries. Avoid this headache. Get medical attention immediately.

Admitting guilt seems like an obvious no-no but it happens often. If you’re in an accident and you say in passing that you’re so sorry and it was your fault, they can hold some weight when we’re trying to show that someone else was the liable party. Witnesses can claim that you admitted you were guilty. It’s best not to say anything at all.

Last, do not give the insurance company any kind of statement. They will  try to use anything you say against you to throw out your claim or reduce what they owe you.
