No one wants to become a victim of a personal injury. Injuries, whether they’re serious or not, are a real frustration. They impact the things you want to do and the arrangements you have in the future.
A serious personal injury is something that most people don’t plan for. Whether it’s a broken leg from a car crash or a brain injury that impacts your ability to speak clearly, your injury could have a significant impact on your life. For that reason, it’s always important for you to assert your rights and to get the compensation that you deserve following an accident.
The other party is at fault, but I’m not angry. Should I still claim against them?
Filing a claim against another person isn’t an aggressive act. It’s simply a business transaction. If you’re hurt, their insurance should cover your medical care and other financial losses. Under the right circumstances, the case shouldn’t have any real implications for that person’s finances, at least where insurance is involved.
If the other party does not have insurance, you may need to go to court for a personal injury claim unless you can come to another agreement outside court. That’s something that you may wish to speak with your attorney about before you pursue a court case.
