Personal injury covers a wide range of accidents, including those caused by reckless, ignorant or negligent behavior. Car, truck, and most vehicular accidents or collisions are often considered personal injury, as well as slanderous speech, physical assault, injuries or issues caused by defective products, and medical/dental malpractice.
If you believe your injury is the result of one of these causes, contact Montagna Klein Camden today for your free legal consultation.
If you or a loved one have recently sustained an injury due to the negligence of another party, it is important to take the proper steps to ensure that your case is protected. Do not admit to any fault, always obtain the contact information of all other parties, and call the police and your Montagna Klein Camden personal injury lawyer immediately. We can take it from there.
We’ll make sure that the necessary and pertinent information gets documented; that witnesses of your accident are contacted and that you meet all deadlines and make all scheduled court appearances. We’ll make sure you’re not in this alone.
Your health is an important consideration as well. Your Montagna Klein Camden attorney can see to it that you make all the right appointments, get in to see all the right doctors, and make copies of all the right papers for court. We’ll see to it that you receive the compensation you’re owed, including payment of medical bills and funding to cover expenses while you or your loved one are unable to work.
The First Steps
When you realize you have been hurt, it’s important to first assess the nature of your injury and those of others involved. Have a trusted physician examine all wounds and determine whether or not you are capable of returning to your regular routine.
Although it may be tempting, although we live in the social media era, DO NOT POST PHOTOS of your incident online. Gather official records from medical and law enforcement professionals, make copies of everything and do not discuss your case with anyone, on or off the computer.
Your lawyer will help you determine how much you should be compensated for your loss of income and/or personal mobility while you recover. A wound that may seem superficial or temporary to you may actually turn out to have long-term effects on your health, which is why it’s important to have the expertise of an attorney in your corner. Contact an insurance company on your own, and you run the risk of receiving less money to which you could be entitled, forcing you to return to work when you may not be fully recovered.
