With summer recreational activities and vacations comes an increased risk of injury. When a person sustains an injury that results from another’s negligence or misconduct, that person may have a right to recover financial compensation through a personal injury case. A claim may be brought against the property owner where the injury occurred or the person who caused the injury. If you have suffered a summertime injury, then the Las Vegas personal injury attorneys from Albright Stoddard Warnick & Albright are available to assist.
What should you do if you experience a summertime injury?
If you have been injured, you should seek out immediate medical treatment. Be sure to comply with any treatment recommendations from your medical providers and have consistent followup appointments.
As soon as possible after the accident, you should contact a personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney can provide legal advice that is specific to your case. This will improve the chances of recovering a settlement. An attorney can also file a claim on your behalf and represent you throughout the process.
Throughout the process, be sure to keep records of everything related to the accident. You should also document your injuries and the accident scene as much as possible through photographs, video recordings and other media.
What happens in a personal injury case?
In most personal injury cases, the insurance provider for the person responsible for the accident will either admit or deny liability. If they admit liability, then they will make a settlement offer to resolve the claim. If the insurance provider denies liability or the settlement amount in insufficient, then you can file a lawsuit through the court. If the lawsuit is not settled, then there will be a trial to determine liability and damages.
