Hiring a Missouri Personal Injury Attorney
When you’re injured on somebody else’s property or due to another person’s negligence, their insurance company will want to settle the claim right away. It’s imperative that you talk to a lawyer first, or you may be leaving money on the table. An insurance company operates on a for-profit basis, their goal is to settle your claim for as little money as possible. The problem is, too often this number doesn’t even cover medical bills, let alone account for other damages.
When you’re faced with a situation like this, the best thing you can do is reach out to an attorney right away. At the Byrnes Law Firm, we’re more than happy to review your case free of charge.
Understanding the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
A statute of limitations is a time limit placed upon taking a legal action. These statutes vary by state and by case type, so it’s important to communicate well with your attorney. If you wait too long to hire legal counsel, you may find yourself with no recourse to file a claim.
Damages to Consider in a Personal Injury Case
A personal injury came frequently goes beyond the immediate injuries you suffer in the accident. Of course you’ll want to seek compensation for medical bills incurred the day of the accident, but what about other damages? You’ll need to consider follow up medical treatment, lost wages due to the injury, loss of quality of life due to permanent or long-lasting injuries, property damage, and more.
By working with an experienced personal injury lawyer, you’ll ensure every angle is covered.
The Cost of a Personal Injury Lawyer
Cost is a big obstacle for many owed financial compensation for damages. Fortunately, the personal injury attorneys at the Byrnes Law Firm operate on a contingency basis. That means you agree that a certain percentage of the compensation you receive will go to your attorney, and if the case is not successful, you don’t have to pay.
