If you’ve been in an accident, whether an auto collision, slip-and-fall or other type of personal injury lawsuit, you might hesitate to file a lawsuit. Many clients worry that their injuries aren’t severe enough to warrant a claim. However, when someone else’s negligence or recklessness is responsible for your injuries, you could be stuck with hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost wages and more.
The Law Offices of Tim Misny have represented clients with mild to severe personal injuries. Never assume your case is too minor to recover damages: call our personal injury firm to find out your legal options.
What kind of injuries qualify for a personal injury lawsuit?
Depending on the individual facts of your case, plaintiffs can sue when they suffer physical, mental and emotional injuries. While damages depend on how severe these injuries may be, even “minor” injuries are often worth pursuing. Whenever your injuries require doctor visits, therapy, medication or other types of care, you can recover those costs through a lawsuit. Similarly, if your injuries have caused you to miss work, you may be able to claim damages.
If you’re worried an injury is too minor for a lawsuit, call the Law Offices of Tim Misny. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine whether it’s worth pursuing a case.
During your initial consultation, your lawyer will want to know:
- Did the injury require medical attention?
- Is the injury preventing you from working?
- Have you already lost income as a result of the injury?
- Are you in pain? What kind of pain? How long has it persisted?
- What kind of medical or emotional/mental treatment have you sought?
- Are the medical bills more than you can afford?
Damages are meant to “make the plaintiff whole again,” or return them to as close to the pre-accident state as possible. Ideally, they should make up for what the plaintiff has had to pay or go through since the accident. For example, if your leg was broken in a car accident, you might ask for compensation to pay for medical bills and the income you lost while you couldn’t work. If not for the defendant’s conduct, you wouldn’t have lost wages or had these specific medical bills to pay.
