Motor vehicle crashes can lead to serious injuries for the occupants of the vehicles. These can range from things like broken bones to spinal cord or brain injuries. When these occur, the victims can rack up considerable medical bills and other expenses related to the crash. We know that this is a troubling time for you, so we are ready to help you pursue legal actions to recover the damages that you face related to the wreck.
When you are involved in an accident, you need to have the police come out to make a report. If you have any injuries, you need to have those evaluated quickly, so you can determine what treatment plan you need to follow to address them. As the complainant, you have a duty to mitigate the damages you have.
Your duty to mitigate means that you take reasonable steps to minimize the amount of damages that you have because of the incident. You aren’t expected to do anything that a reasonable person wouldn’t do. You also aren’t asked to do things that violate your religious beliefs.
There are many different types of damages that you might have in these cases. Medical care costs, lost wages and pain and suffering are a few of these. When you are launching your claim, you must ensure that you are accurately accounting not only your past expenses but also your future expenses. Once your case is resolved, you can’t come back to ask for more money. We are here to help you through the situation, so you know your rights and options.
