When an individual is hurt in an automobile accident, pedestrian, slip and fall, dog bite, tractor trailer, motorcycle, or any other type of accident that resulted in injuries by another individual, a Personal Injury Attorney in Bellingham WA can help the victim receives compensation for their case. If an individual passes away because of the injuries they received, a personal injury lawyer can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the surviving family members.
Attempting to settle a case without an attorney is allowed, but a victim will find it to be a hassle and will be offered a lower settlement for their injuries than the victim is entitled. The pain, suffering, and other emotional losses an individual faces does not have to be added to with aggravation from the insurance company.
A personal injury attorney has outstanding negotiation skills that will be used to settle the case as quickly as possible. The victim should never agree to a settlement until they have completed their medical treatment. In the event the individual requires additional medical treatment after they have signed a settlement agreement, they will not be able to receive any further compensation for their injuries.
