You Have Important Legal Rights
A person who has suffered catastrophic injuries has legal rights and may be entitled to bring a lawsuit against responsible parties. The injured person may sue the parties both directly and indirectly responsible. This could include not only those who personally caused the harm, but also manufacturers, suppliers and installers of products and equipment which were involved.
Even if you have been injured through no fault of your own, you should not expect an insurance company to be on your side. Their goal will generally be to provide as little compensation as they are required, in order to maximize their profits. As your legal representatives, on the other hand, our job is to help you recover as much as possible through a settlement or jury verdict.
You May Be Entitled To Damages
The damages that may be recovered include:
- Medical bills related to treatment
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income and/or earning capacity
- Loss of companionship or a spousal or parental relationship
- Loss of financial support
- Funeral and burial costs
Act Without Delay
Prompt action is required. The laws vary state from state, but the statute of limitations in every state requires that lawsuits be filed within certain time periods. In Hawaii, an injury lawsuit must be brought within two years of the incident. To successfully bring a lawsuit against those who were responsible, it is important to act quickly so that none of your legal rights are lost.
