Our Law Firm Can Help You Understand Your Rights After an Injury
Every day, millions of emergency vehicles transporting patients in need of immediate medical attention speed down roads at high speeds. With their screeching sirens and bright lights, ambulances notify those in the area of their presence, urging a path to be cleared. However, like any other vehicle on the road, ambulances are vulnerable to collisions—especially considering their high speeds.
If you have been injured due to the negligence of another person, if a loved one has been hurt, or if you’ve lost a loved one, then you have a right to file a personal injury claim. You may be unsure of how to navigate the legal process at this point. You know you need to file a claim, but are unsure how. It’s possible that you are entitled to rights and benefits that you aren’t even aware of. You may need help determining if you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits or, if your loved one has was killed, you may be wondering how wrongful death cases are handled.

What Do I Do If I’m Not Getting the Best Care?
One of the most common questions that we hear from people who contact us concerns the care that they’re receiving for their injury. If you feel as if you are not receiving the best possible medical care, you may need to switch doctors. You need a doctor who will listen to your concerns and help improve your medical conditions. A doctor chosen by your company or an insurance adjuster may not have your best interests at heart. You want a doctor who cares about your well-being first and foremost. Do not settle for a doctor who does not listen to your problems—find a medical provider who will listen to you and assist you throughout your case. If you feel like you need a better doctor, please contact us. We can be reached at 800.793.3903. We can work with you to determine who the most qualified doctor is to treat your particular problem.
What If My Employer Wants Me to Sign an Agreement?
Another common concern is employees injured on the job who feel as if they are being pressured into signing an agreement. After an accident, companies often try to force injured workers to sign an agreement or release in exchange for a small payment. You should never sign anything without talking to a skilled personal injury attorney. Most often, the insurance companies are really trying to pay you the least amount possible. They will also require you to give up your legal rights later on. For this reason, it is imperative that after being involved in a personal injury accident you retain legal representation immediately. You should not sign anything, or give any kind of a statement, before consulting the situation over with an injury attorney. Having a skilled lawyer on your side will help you avoid jeopardizing your case.
