Each Lear Werts LLP personal injury lawyer in Columbia, MO can help navigate the various problems that will arise and work with you to maximize your recovery following a serious personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence.
Of course, the first step after an accident or injury is to make sure everyone involved is safe and to get needed medical attention.
Only then should you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to find out your options and protect your rights.
The period following an injury is difficult for both the victim and the victim’s family. So many issues must be addressed at a time when you are least able to handle them. Injury victims often must immediately seek medical attention and may also be faced with arranging for the care of their family if incapacitated.
In addition to determining whether the accident was the result of negligence, a personal injury lawyer can help you identify all of your losses — including recovering medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and compensation for permanent injury.
If you have been injured because of the negligent or intentional act of another, you should discuss your situation with Lear Werts before accepting an insurance company’s settlement offer.
While you need fair compensation to take care of yourself and your family, you also need time to heal, and to not rush into talking with an insurance adjuster about policies and liabilities. At your initial free consultation, we will explain your legal options and suggest a course of action.
