Traffic accidents can be frightening and overwhelming. And the repercussions – medical treatment for injuries, pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, and insurance claims – can be even more frightening and overwhelming. Our experienced legal team can help guide you through the personal injury litigation process with individual attention and reliable counsel.
Accidents often require immediate medical treatment resulting in costly doctor and hospital bills. Other times, injuries may not be apparent until days or weeks after the accident when painful symptoms begin to appear. This often occurs when a person suffers soft tissue injuries, which typically produce stiffness, numbness, soreness, headaches and similar symptoms.
If you’ve been in an accident and suspect injury, it is critical to seek medical treatment as early as possible. A medical professional can generally identify potential injuries before the onset of acute symptoms.
Awards for personal injury cases often include reimbursement for medical treatment already received and compensation for the estimated cost of medical care needed in the future because of the accident.
Repairing your damaged car is often one of the most pressing issues that needs to be resolved when you’ve been in a car accident. Unfortunately, many insurance companies do not feel the same sense of urgency. Whether your car is drivable or considered a total loss, the wait and unresponsiveness can be frustrating. At Harman Law, PLLC, we assist our clients during every stage of the property damage process, from scheduling initial estimates to ensuring repairs are performed in a timely manner. If your vehicle is deemed a total loss, we also work diligently to get you fair and prompt compensation.
Numerous studies have shown that personal injury settlements are often much lower when individuals represent themselves instead of hiring an attorney to negotiate on their behalf. Why? Knowledge and experience.
At Harman Law, PLLC, we work with insurance adjusters every day. We understand the ins and outs of the negotiation process. Our extensive experience and track record of success work to your advantage in negotiating for higher awards.
Pain and Suffering and Emotional Distress
Pain and serious discomfort suffered during an accident and its immediate aftermath, along with ongoing pain attributed to the accident, can also be grounds for compensation. Similarly, emotional distress damages linked to more serious accidents can be awarded to personal injury victims to compensate for the psychological impact of an injury, such as fear, anxiety and sleep loss.
When you’ve been in an accident and sustained injuries that prevent you from returning to work, you may be entitled to compensation for the accident’s impact on your salary and wages – not just income you’ve already lost but also the money you would have been able to make in the future, if not for the accident.
