What Types of Injuries Require an Attorney?

Although any type of accident injury situation can conceivably benefit from experienced legal assistance, an accident victim with minor injuries can often obtain fair compensation with a simple insurance claim.  Just as often, however, victims cannot collect fair damages without the help of a qualified attorney.

Collection for minor injuries can often benefit from retaining an attorney

Many minor injuries—such as simple broken bones, concussions, and whiplash—are typically compensated by filing a claim with the insurance company of the negligent party.  However, even these types of injuries can result in significant recovery time, lost time from work, and physical therapy extending way beyond the accident date.  Insurance companies may offer a quick settlement, but the compensation they provide may not cover all future expenses associated with recovery.  Experienced Indianapolis attorneys have the negotiation skills needed to ensure victims receive all compensation they deserve.

Fair compensation for serious injuries

Anyone who rushes to the emergency room to treat injuries should most likely consider retaining an attorney to handle your legal case.  But, particularly when injuries are so severe that recovery is a lengthy process, or when the injuries cause permanent or total disability, it is essential to retain an experienced lawyer.  Serious injuries include the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Any injury that results in death

Treatment for serious injuries can incur significant expenses beyond the initial medical treatment.  When disability is involved, the costs of the injury can extend for a lifetime.  Do not count on a simple insurance settlement to truly compensate you for these losses.

Experienced attorneys can make a difference in every case

You may not retain a lawyer after sustaining minor cuts and bruises in an accident.  But, even with minor injuries, it can be helpful to get informal legal advice before handling the case yourself.  For more significant injuries, the legal issues can quickly become complicated and may require the specialized knowledge of a law firm to ensure you are fairly compensated for your expenses.
