What is Personal Injury?
Personal injury refers to any incident where you are injured due to someone else’s negligence. Personal injury can happen because of an automobile accident, defective product, medical malpractice, slip and fall, and other ways as well.
If you are involved in an injury, make sure you take the necessary steps to ensure you are fairly compensated for your injury. The first thing is to make sure everyone is okay and seek medical treatment if necessary. Exchange information with the other party involved. Get the names and phone numbers of anyone who might have witnessed the incident. Take photos and notes detailing what happened. If you are contacted by the other side’s insurance company, tell your attorney and have them speak to the other insurance company.
If you believe you might have a personal injury case, it is a good idea to have an attorney represent your case. When you go up against the insurance companies alone, you will probably settle for a lot less than you deserve. An experienced attorney, like here at ESR Law Group, know how to deal with the insurance companies and the procedures to follow for a personal injury case.
