Any physical or emotional injury caused by another person's conduct may give the victim grounds to take legal action in civil court. This type of injury is referred to as a "personal injury" and may offer the victim the foundation of a civil lawsuit that would enable him or her to seek financial damages for the many losses or injuries caused by the incident. For example, a driver in Winston-Salem may be broad-sided by a drunk driver who was not paying attention and ran a red light. If the driver was seriously injured, he or she may face extensive medical bills and financial difficulties if he or she misses work. By filing a personal injury claim, the victim may be able to recover money from the drunk driver (usually his or her insurance policy) that will cover current and future medical expenses as well as lost earnings and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering or emotional trauma. Although this cannot completely eradicate all memory or effects of the accident, it can help the victim begin rebuilding his or her life and moving on.
Often times accident victims are recovering in the hospital in the days, or weeks following an accident. It's not uncommon for hospital stays to lead to weeks or months of bed rest at home afterwards. During this difficult time when a victim should be healing and recovering from their injuries, they are supposed to be filing a claim with the legally liable party's insurance company. This can be next to impossible while the injured person is in the hospital and their family is scrambling to pick up the pieces back home. As a seasoned law firm with more than 35 years of experience in personal injury law, we can effectively handle the paperwork and your claim with the greatest amount of ease and confidence while you focus your energy on healing. We urge you to contact a Winston-Salem personal injury attorney from our firm as soon as possible so we can get started on filing your claim.
