When an accident causes a permanent disability, it’s difficult to determine the long-term effect of your pain and suffering. An attorney will compare your injury claim to other claims that are similar. Attorneys and insurance companies will consult with legal publications that report the results of other cases that have gone to trial. Experts will be referred to your case to determine many of the physical and financial aspects of your lawsuit.
A person who has suffered permanent injury can sue the liable party, or the family of the injured can sue the liable party in the event that the permanent injury has rendered the person unable to seek litigation on his or her own behalf. For the best results in receiving complete compensation for your permanent disability, it’s crucial to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable in permanent disability cases.
