Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind, or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. Personal injury law (also known as tort law) allows an injured person to go to civil court and get a legal remedy (damages) for all losses stemming from an accident or other incident. The purpose of the personal injury system is to allow the injured person to be compensated financially or "made whole” after he or she has suffered harm due to someone else's carelessness or intentional conduct.
Every case is different. A variety of factors go into deciding the average settlement for a car accident. Take into account the type of injury, treatment plan, length of therapy, loss of income, and severity of the wreck. In most cases, a settlement is only offered when the medical treatment has been completed. Permanent injuries will influence the amount of compensation that you receive.
Yes. Most of the time, you won’t feel pain right away because your brain may block or ignore pain signals so you can focus on keeping yourself safe. We always recommend seeing a doctor after an accident, and that’s because they can test for injuries that might not register right away.
Call around, preferably The Law Offices of Kevin M. Carr LLC, at 410-337-7474. My suggestion would be to work with an attorney that offers a contingent fee. A contingent arrangement ensures you receive the legal advice you need after being involved in a car accident without having to worry about how you are going to pay for the service. Only after you receive compensation, either through a settlement or verdict, will you owe attorney's fees.
