When you’re injured because of another’s negligence, your world can be turned upside down. Time is lost at work in order to care for your injuries which means you aren’t getting the paycheck that you are used to getting. Some injuries may even prevent you from going back to the same line of work. Medical bills are piling up and insurance may not be providing the coverage that you thought it would. Your rent or mortgage and other regular monthly bills aren’t going to go away just because you are injured and haven’t been able to make money. You have all of these expenses but no way of paying, how is that fair to you?
When you are drowning in bills with growing medical costs you up can end up being financially and emotionally distressed while recovering from your physical injuries. You deserve compensation from the at-fault party to reduce the burden placed upon you and your loved ones because of someone else’s negligence. The Stroud Fenner Law Firm will work diligently and compassionately for and with you to help you turn your world right-side up again.
If you are in an accident or injured due to the negligent actions of another, it is important that you not only seek necessary medical care but that you also reach out to an attorney to make sure that you understand your rights and that those rights are protected. Too often and too easily, insurance companies try to get you to agree to a settlement or admit to some fault for an accident to reduce their responsibility and to increase their bottom line. When you are injured due to the negligence or wrongful act of a third party you may be eligible for compensation for:
- The amount of past and current medical bills
- The amount of future medical and recovery costs
- Loss of past wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering from physical, mental, and emotional injuries
