An average person on a normal day takes a lot of chances. Ordinary, everyday things like going to work (sometimes work itself), getting out of the bathtub, riding your bike or crossing the street can be dangerous. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, getting killed by accident is the 3rd leading cause of death in America, and Florida is among the most dangerous places to live. “Based on new injury statistics,” according to the National Safety Council, “an American is accidentally injured every second and killed every three minutes by a preventable event – a drug overdose, a vehicle crash, a fall, a drowning or another preventable incident.” In fact, preventable deaths have reached record numbers. Nearly 170,000 people died in accidents in 2017.
Whether it’s an auto accident, a slip and fall, a workplace injury or some other mishap, accidents are expensive. Aside from any bodily injury, the cost involved in missing work, unpaid bills, and medical expenses like physical therapy can pile up. That’s why many accident victims file a personal injury claim through an accident attorney. An experienced trial lawyer knows how to use the legal system to get the best settlement in a personal injury lawsuit.
Trial Lawyers Help Accident Victims Recover Losses
Getting justice after an accident can be difficult. Insurance companies operate for profit, not your well-being. They’d love for you to take their first offer and then go away. Once you cash their check, they can forget about you. But what if someone’s negligent actions cause long-term problems? Often, car accident injuries, for example, aren’t apparent right away. That’s why it’s important to see a doctor right away if you’ve been in a serious car accident. You might wind up with unexpected medical bills, or you may not be able to work. Although most personal injury accident claims are settled out of court, an insurance company knows when they are up against an experienced trial lawyer who can and will go to trial if need be.
