When a person is injured in an accident, the injuries can dominate that person’s life to such an extent that it can feel overwhelming. The pain, suffering, depression, anxiety, and uncertainty can occupy your every thought. The goal is for you to get back to normal, to live life as it was before the accident, but this can be difficult to do while a lawsuit is ongoing and injuries are at the forefront of your mind. Instinct might tell you that the best thing to do is to settle your lawsuit as quickly as possible, so that you can move on. But by settling quickly, before your body is fully healed, or before your doctor has a good idea of your future health and healthcare needs, you could be missing out on the compensation you deserve. Your health may worsen, or you may require costly medical care that should have been paid for by the person who injured you, but that will now have to come out of your own pocket. The right Personal Injury Lawyer can help, by dealing with your claim so you don’t have to, and by letting you know when it is appropriate to settle your claim.
