Recovering Damages in a Personal Injury Claim or Lawsuit
If you were injured in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation, including lost wages from work, past and future medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, and more. Our experienced Maryville personal injury lawyers can identify all applicable damages and estimate how much compensation you deserve.
Obtaining compensation in a personal injury claim or a lawsuit isn’t a simple matter. An insurance company is in the business of earning a profit and minimizing the amount of compensation they pay out on claims. An insurance company will employ insurance adjusters and attorneys to minimize payouts on claims and protect their interests. Because of this, you must be represented by an experienced personal injury attorney to level the playing field and ensure that your rights are protected so that you can receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries and other losses.
Your choice of personal injury attorney can play a major role in the compensation you receive for your injuries and damages. This is because an insurance company considers whether the attorney you have hired has the experience and skills necessary to successfully take your case to trial.
We Have the Skills & Resources Needed to Win
The lawyers at the Ferguson Law Group have the skills and experience necessary to successfully take on insurance companies and their defense teams.
We also have the financial resources needed to work with field experts including accident reconstruction experts, medical specialists, engineers, and economists, in addition to other key specialists needed to explain the extent of your damages and injuries to a jury.
During this time, the insurance company’s team of lawyers will deny that your injuries were caused by the accident or that your injuries are as severe as you claim they are. A defense attorney may even claim that your own negligence resulted in the accident and that you should not be eligible to receive any type of compensation.
Winning a lawsuit will not only require that you prove your case, but that you successfully defend yourself against the tactics and strategies used by insurance companies that are designed to defeat your claim or minimize payout.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
There are strict time limits that you should be aware of when it comes to filing a lawsuit for a personal injury. Every state has strict deadlines for seeking compensation and they are important to follow and know. These deadlines can also change depending on the type of claim you’re filing.
In Arizona, there is a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases. This means you will have two years to file your case, or you may lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages.
Unfortunately, the clock starts ticking on the day of the accident. While two years may sound like a long time, many types of personal injury cases are very complex and require an extensive investigation that can be very time-consuming. The more time your attorney has to gather evidence and build a case, the stronger your case will be. Because of this, you must contact a personal injury attorney from the Ferguson Law Group as soon as possible.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?
The types of damages you can pursue are consistent across most types of personal injury claims, although the specific circumstances of your accident can make a difference. These damages are divided into a couple of categories, economic damages, and non-economic damages.
Economic damages will compensate the accident victim for all financial losses they have suffered such as medical treatment, future medical treatment, lost wages from work, and property damage.
Non-economic damages compensate the accident victim for non-financial losses that are associated with suffering an injury including emotional distress, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. Because non-economic damages focus on abstract losses, they are also referred to as general damages.
Negotiating with Insurance Companies
Our experienced and skilled personal injury attorneys have been successfully negotiating fair settlements from insurance companies for several years.
Our attorneys are familiar with the strategies and tactics insurance adjusters will try to use to minimize payout or avoid paying accident victims at all. We will take over settlement negotiations with an insurance adjuster to ensure you do not accidentally say something that may harm your case and we will also prevent an insurance company from pressuring you into accepting their lowball settlement offer.
Going to Trial
If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement amount, we will meet with you to discuss your other legal options. If we feel that you were able to get a higher award if you take your case to trial, then we will recommend you do so. If you agree, we will work around the clock to prepare your case for trial and present the evidence we have gathered in front of a judge or jury.
In many cases, once an insurance company is aware that we plan to take the case to trial they will request that we continue negotiations. An insurance company wants to avoid an expensive trial at all costs.
At the Ferguson Law Group, we will not let an insurance company take advantage of you or intimidate you. We will fight an insurance company head-on, and we will not back down until you receive the compensation you deserve.
