What Constitutes a Personal Injury Case
There are a number of factors that go into a strong personal injury claim. An attorney is your best bet for legal guidance, but to give you an idea of where your case falls, ask yourself these questions.
- Do I see or feel injuries or pain?
- Could this have been prevented by the other party?
- Is there insurance involved?
- What did my doctor say about the diagnosis?
- What does my lawyer think?
If you do feel pain, and your doctor agrees that you are injured, the next step is to contact a Sandy Springs personal injury lawyer from the law office of John Foy & Associates. An attorney will help you sort out the details, such as fault, and can handle battling the insurance companies. With a lawyer by your side, your rights will be stood up for.
When and When Not To Call An Attorney
Many people have been incorrect in their assumptions when it comes to personal injury, and we’d like to help clarify a few rules of thumb for the general public.
For starters, not every injury qualifies as lawsuit-worthy. The harm you’ve sustained must have been caused by someone else, and not caused by actions made by yourself. In addition, you must have solid proof that you are, in fact, injured. The best way to do this is to have a medical professional document your injuries. Thirdly, the injuries you’ve encountered must be real. Something like a hair in someone’s soup would not qualify. While it is unappealing, there was no real harm done that caused them to need medical care or pain.
The truth is, even if you think your claim might not be a solid one, it’s best to consult with a Sandy Springs personal injury lawyer to clarify your legal options.
