How Can the Attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers Assist with My Case? 

If you suffered a serious injury in an accident, you’ve likely found yourself in a precarious financial position. Even minor injuries can cost a small fortune to treat, leading to thousands of dollars in expenses. If you suffered a permanent disability or catastrophic injury, your bills could climb into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

Fortunately, filing a personal injury claim could help you recover compensation for many of your losses. A personal injury attorney can guide you through the challenging weeks ahead, answering your questions and explaining your role at every stage of proceedings. Let’s look at a few more ways our lawyers may be able to assist with your case:  

  • Investigate the Accident: Even if it seems clear that the other party is entirely at fault for causing the accident, it’s likely that his or her insurer will dispute aspects of your claim. As such, you should investigate the accident and gather evidence to prove liability and damages. At HPIL, our legal team can assess your situation as part of a free case review, conduct an in-depth investigation into the incident, and help gather the necessary evidence to support your claim. 
  • Estimate Fair Compensation for Your Losses: From medical expenses to lost income to loss of enjoyment in life, there are many different types of damages that might be recoverable as part of your claim. Our attorneys can review the available evidence to determine which losses may be available to you, and take steps to gather the necessary proof to demonstrate your damages. We can also consult with expert witnesses to help approximate reasonable compensation for the losses you’ve incurred. 
  • Provide Tenacious Representation Throughout Proceedings: Whether you’re negotiating a settlement amount or preparing to file a lawsuit against the liable parties, our legal team is with you every step of the way. Not only do we have a track record of success both in and out of court, but we can also help make sure that proceedings are as simple and stress-free as possible for you and your family.  

What Factors Could Affect the Outcome of My Truck Wreck Claim? 

From replacement services to medical expenses to home modifications, the costs of suffering a serious injury can add up at a rapid pace. As such, you may be wondering how much your personal injury case is worth. After all, a favorable settlement could help you pay off your bills and get your life back on track. 

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a specific outcome for your case—no lawyer or law firm can. However, we can investigate the accident, review the available evidence, and consult with expert witnesses if necessary to determine fair compensation for the losses you’ve incurred. 

Let’s take a look at a few factors we might consider when approximating a reasonable settlement: 

  • Were You Unable to Work? If you could not return to work due to your injuries, or your condition is likely to impede your ability to work in the future, you may be able to recover compensation for lost earnings.  
  • Did You Make Any Mistakes? While another party might appear to be 100% responsible for causing the accident, you could still be held liable for some or all of your damages. For instance, if you made mistakes such as deviating from your treatment plan or failing to visit the doctor within a reasonable timeframe after the crash, you may be on the hook for a portion of your losses. At HPIL, our legal team can help you navigate the challenging days ahead, advising you on how to avoid common oversights, mistakes, and errors that might otherwise harm your case. 
  • How Serious Are Your Injuries? Long-term or permanent injuries will almost always cost more to treat than relatively minor conditions. If you suffered a serious injury, it’s likely that you also suffered a greater degree of pain and suffering. As a result, the severity of your injuries will usually have a major impact on the potential value of your claim.
