Why Do I Need A Flint Personal Injury Lawyer To File My Injury Claim?

The fact that you were injured is not sufficient to prove that you should receive compensation. You must prove the legal elements of a personal injury case to receive money for your claim. For most personal injury cases, those elements are duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages.  The first and the last elements are usually the easiest to prove. For instance, drivers owe a duty of care to operate their vehicles in a safe and reasonable manner. Property owners have a duty of care to maintain safe premises for their visitors and guests. Doctors owe a duty of care to their patients. Proving you suffered damages involves providing copies of your medical records and other documents as evidence.

Proving a breach of duty and causation can be a bit more difficult. You must obtain evidence showing the person’s actions or inactions were negligent, reckless, or intentional. Then you need to connect those actions or inactions to the accident or incident that resulted in your injury and damages.  Most personal injury cases require a thorough and comprehensive investigation to determine the cause of the injury and to identify the party responsible for the event that led to an injury. It also requires extensive knowledge of Michigan’s personal injury laws. For these reasons, it is in your best interest to consult a Flint personal injury attorney.

What is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

This question about personal injury cases is one of the most common questions our attorneys answer during consultations. Unfortunately, until we perform an investigation, it is impossible to know how much a claim is worth. If an attorney suggests a value for the claim during an initial consultation, you need a second opinion. Valuing a claim too early usually results in the client losing money.  Our Flint personal injury lawyers want to increase the chance you receive full compensation for all your damages. Therefore, we invest the time and resources that it takes to learn the true value of your personal injury claim.

Factors Used in Valuing a Personal Injury Claim

Several factors are used to calculate the compensation we believe you deserve for your injury claim. However, we do not want to place a final value on the claim until you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI).  Your doctor will issue a final prognosis when you reach the point in your treatment when further medical treatment will not result in any improvement in your condition. In other words, you have recovered fully, or you have a permanent impairment or disability because of the accident.  This element is very important because you may be entitled to compensation for a disability or permanent impairment. The future lost wages and ongoing medical care could be substantial.  Therefore, valuing your claim before you reach MMI could result in a much lower settlement amount.  Factors that are used to calculate the value of a personal injury claim include:

  • The actual financial losses sustained because of the accident, including your medical bills and lost income;
  • The type and severity of your injuries;
  • Whether or not you suffered a permanent impairment; and,
  • The length of your recovery.

Through years of experience, our Flint personal injury lawyers have developed winning strategies using the facts and circumstances of a case to determine the value of many common personal injuries. We utilize evidence and information gained during the investigation to maximize the amount of money we believe you should receive for your claim. Once we arrive at the value, we fight for full compensation.  Whether or not you receive the full amount for your claim depends on numerous factors that are unique to your case. We are very open and honest with you during your case as to your chances of recovery based on the facts in your case.  If you have questions about filing a personal injury claim, call The Clark Law Office at 517-347-6900 to schedule a free legal consultation with one of our Flint personal injury lawyers.
