7 Reasons to Seek Compensation After An Injury

At Genthe Law Firm, we understand that being injured in an accident can be an incredibly difficult time. Not only do you have to deal with pain and suffering, but you may also face mounting medical bills and lost wages. That is why we believe it is important to seek compensation after being injured in an accident. Here are just some of the reasons why:

1. You Have Limited Time to File a Lawsuit

The Texas statute of limitations for personal injury cases gives you just two years from the date of the injury to file suit in civil court. You have no idea what will happen over the course of those two years. 

But if some medical issue related to your car or truck accident crops up after that time goes by, you won’t be in a position to sue for what’s fair. That means being left alone with your injuries and later symptoms, with no recourse. You don’t want to do that to your future self. Therefore, hiring a personal injury lawyer can help you move forward quickly with any legal decisions you have to make to ensure you get paid.

Compensation allows you to obtain the financial security you need to cover your medical expenses. Reimbursement for missed wages can help provide you and your family with a much-needed safety net.

2. To Stop Worrying About Those Future Symptoms

Injuries to the head, back and spine are especially notorious for having aftereffects and sometimes causing symptoms in seemingly unrelated parts of the body. 

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can lead to major problems with movement and emotional regulation. It’s not fair for you to go through your injury alone or pay for those medical expenses down the line you don’t even know about yet.

3. To Make Use of Insurance

Whether you’ve been in a car accident or suffered corporate negligence, liability insurance aims to ensure that you, the victim, are properly compensated. 

There’s a reason liability is required, and it’s exactly what has happened to you. The system can work, if you let it. That means ensuring you get paid, getting a personal injury lawyer, and filing for your relief.

4. A Car or Truck Accident Wasn’t Your Fault

In a personal injury suit, your side needs to prove that another party acted recklessly or in negligence and that their actions (or failure to act) led to your harm. 

Those can be difficult to cover alone, leading some people to let the civil suit slide. But if those things are true, it’s in your best interest to get the law on your side and have a personal injury lawyer build a winning case.

Seeking compensation can send a strong message to those responsible for the accident. It shows them that you will not stand for their negligence or carelessness that led to the harm caused to you.

5. You Need Legal or Insurance Representation

Hiring a lawyer isn’t just about having someone to fight for you, although we’ll do that too. It’s also about navigating the treacherous and confusing waters of the courts and the insurance industry. 

Think of them both as mazes that have been put into place specifically to make sure you don’t get paid what you are owed, and you’ll see why filing suit with a lawyer is your best move. The lawyers of Genthe Law Firm can help you navigate these mazes and get you to the satisfaction at the core of the systems.

When you seek compensation, it holds those responsible accountable for their actions. This helps to ensure that similar accidents won’t happen again in the future.

6. You May Suffer Lost Wages

It’s not just the statute of limitations that you’re up against. If anything further happens because of your injury, you’ll be on the hook for those expenses, including lost wages. 

This alone is a valid reason for filing suit. Even if your early recovery goes quickly, you still don’t know what other effects your accident may have and how they can impact your ability to work.

7. To Deter Corporate Negligence

Some civil settlements are partially intended to deter people and companies from proceeding with the same lack of care that led to your accident. In the case of negligent companies, their insurance may work really well and lead to a settlement. But what about the next person they injure? 

Their next complainant may not be as lucky as you are. It only makes sense for companies to feel some financial pain, hoping to get them to behave better. You’re in a position to help make sure they do.
