How Can A DC Injury Attorney Help?

Accidents can occur in the blink of an eye and cause immense physical, emotional, and financial challenges. It is incredibly unfortunate when the cause of the accident is because of someone else, and if this happens to you, you must remember this: do not downplay your injuries. If an injury is causing you any lasting pain, the person who caused it should be held responsible.

If you or a loved one has been hurt as a result of someone else’s carelessness, you do not have to suffer through it alone. Reach out to an experienced attorney at The Lapidus Law Firm so we can review your case and determine if a fair and reasonable settlement could be in order for your injuries.

Types of Injury Claims

There are many accidents that can occur as a result of someone else’s negligence.  Some of the most common include:

These events can be not only incredibly scary, but they also often lead to weeks, months – and possibly years of pain and suffering. We represent clients with a wide range of injuries, including:

  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Concussions/ Head Injuries/ Brain Damage
  • Fractures

  • Torn or pulled muscles, ligaments, and tissues
  • Loss or Impairment of Hearing or Sight

When you file a lawsuit, your attorney will have to compile your list of claims that could be included in your settlement.  Those include

  • Ambulance and hospital bills
  • MRI tests and exams
  • Lost wages because of time away from work due to injury
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Cognitive Dysfunction
  • Emotional trauma
  • Impairment of Daily Activities
  • Diminished quality of life
  • And much more!

How Will My Settlement Be Calculated?

The settlement cost for injuries sustained will vary depending on individual situations. It is important to understand that insurance adjusters will find any way to lessen your settlement amount. For example, when you are involved in an accident or any event resulting in injury, it is crucial that you seek medical attention immediately — not only to ensure your well-being but because insurance adjusters may use the delay of medical attention as a reason to minimize your settlement.

Another factor that will affect your settlement is continuity of medical and therapeutic treatment. If the treatment has significant time gaps or if an injured person misses medical appointments, the amount of the offer will be significantly lowered.

Filing a lawsuit can be a long  and stressful process, and it is best that you have someone with you along the way that will make it go as smoothly as possible – someone that has a full understanding of how the insurance system operates, and also has experience in representing clients just like you!
