Personal Injury Claims and Other Losses

Do I need a lawyer to file or settle a claim for personal injuries?

No, it is not necessary to be represented by a lawyer for your personal injury claim. However, it may be a very good idea to get legal advice about your rights and how to negotiate the best settlement.

The personal injury attorneys at Wiener & Lambka, have extensive experience in helping clients assert their rights with insurance companies to receive fair settlements.

We prefer to be involved in a case as early as possible so that we can prevent mistakes in the handling of our client’s claims. Because you cannot “unbake a cake,” the surest path to achieving a fair settlement is to obtain legal advice promptly. Adjusters are trained by insurance company attorneys to negotiate the lowest settlements possible; it is only “leveling the playing field” to have an experienced attorney in your corner as well.

If you have been injured as the result of an accident, please contact our office so that one of our auto accident attorneys can speak with you regarding your potential claim for personal injury.

What types of losses can be covered in personal injury claims?

Depending on the type and severity of the injuries, some of the following losses may be covered by a settlement from an insurance company:

  • Medical treatment for injuries, including doctor visits, hospitalization, surgery, medications, and more.
  • Loss of income due to absence from work while recovering from injuries.
  • Compensation for pain and suffering from the injuries.
  • Other consequential losses that can be reasonably attributed to the injuries.

The auto accident attorneys at Wiener & Lambka will be glad to consult with you about your personal injury claims resulting from an accident. Please contact our office so that one of our auto accident attorneys can speak with you – by phone, at our offices, or at a place convenient for you (home, workplace, hospital, etc.). We will travel to you to demonstrate our commitment to superior customer service.

What about damage to my personal property in the vehicle?

If your personal property in the vehicle was also damaged, you have the right to recover those losses as well. You will need to document the damage to the property, such as photographs, and you will need to provide evidence of purchase of the property.
