How Can We Help You To Claim Damages For A Personal Injury Case?
In order for damages to be pursued and awarded, a third party must be found to be liable for the incident. Whether you are claiming injuries that occurred at your workplace, a property owner, or a medical facility, a third party could be found to be responsible for your accident, and this will be the first step in our legal investigation.
We will work for you to prove that the negligence or actions of this party directly resulted in your injuries, and this makes them liable to provide damages and compensation for expenses and costs incurred as a result of your injuries. These can be used to cover essential medical costs, including ongoing care and physical therapy. Adaptations can also be counted as an expense, including the need for additional home care or assistance. We will also fight for your loss of income, as well as pain, suffering, and the mental trauma you have faced.
What Is Medical Malpractice, And How Can We Help You Fight It?
A medical malpractice case arises when a medical professional or facility is found to be directly responsible for any injuries or illnesses an individual experiences as a result of negligent care. All medical professionals have a duty of care to their patients, and if this is breached in any way, injury can occur. In the event that this breach contributed directly to your injuries, you may be in a position to pursue the third party for a medical malpractice claim.
Common examples of these breaches can include misdiagnosis of a condition or a delayed diagnosis, both of which mean an individual is unable to receive the treatment they need in time. We can help you to examine your situation to make sure you have a case, and then work with you on the best course of action, to help you receive the compensatory damages and financial aid you need to move forward.
Recover Compensation for Care After Personal Injury
In the aftermath of any kind of personal injury, it’s important first and foremost to seek medical attention. However, the responsibility for paying for that treatment may belong to the person or persons found at fault. If you’re struggling financially, you may, unfortunately, find yourself feeling forced to make the decision not to seek the critical medical assistance you may require because of the cost.
Hilbrich Law Firm believes that no decision about your medical health and well being should be decided based on whether or not you can pay for it out of pocket. We can help determine where the responsibility for your injuries lies. When we do, we will make sure we fight for you to receive a fair settlement to help you get the care you need. Our compassionate, dedicated team of lawyers will do our best to guide you through every step of the legal process.
