San Francisco Injury Attorney

Suffering an injury is never easy, but if someone else’s negligence is to blame, it makes a grim situation even grimmer. If that’s the situation you find yourself in, an experienced San Francisco injury attorney can help ensure that you receive the compensation to which you’re entitled, and that covers all the damages you’ve incurred (in their entirety). 

Accidents and Common Causes

While personal injury cases can come in innumerable forms, there are some types of accidents that are most commonly associated with these cases, including:

The kind of accident that leaves you injured isn’t as important as working closely with an experienced injury attorney is. 

The Damages Incurred

The damages you experience as a result of someone else’s negligence can be considerable, including:

  • Medical Costs – Medical costs begin with emergency care at and transportation from the scene of the accident and extend to surgery and hospitalization, follow-up care, treatment from doctors and specialists, physical therapy, prescription medications, rehabilitation, and much more. If your injuries are serious, you can also face secondary health issues into the future – along with significant expense.
  • Lost Hours on the Job – You’ve been injured, and this likely means that you are going to lose hours on the job and that you will also experience decreased earnings. A catastrophic injury can leave you unable to return to work altogether, which amounts to a lifetime of lost wages. 
  • Pain and Suffering – Though it’s more difficult to quantify than your other damages, the physical and emotional pain and suffering associated with being injured because of someone else’s negligence is very real and should not be overlooked.

Establishing the complete array of damages you’ve suffered is very important to your claim.

Dealing with the Insurance Company

You have been injured by someone else’s negligence, and now you have to go through an insurance company for compensation. The most important point to keep in mind is that the insurance company is a for-profit business that is motivated by those profits. In other words, the insurance company is not motivated by your best interests. 

In order to obtain compensation that addresses your damages in their entirety, the best practice is to allow your experienced injury attorney to skillfully deal with the insurance company on your behalf. You are not required to supply the insurance with a recorded statement about the accident, and you do yourself and your case a favor by not doing so. Further, staying off of social media is another good practice in your situation and represents another way to avoid communicating with the insurance company (they will be perusing your posts, pictures, and comments).
