If you have sustained a personal injury in Sioux City or South Sioux City, you should know you have many rights. For many people understanding these rights can be a bit complicated. With a qualified attorney on your side, though, you can rest assured that your rights are being protected. From helping ensure that you receive any compensation due to you to knowing when and if you need to appear in court, an attorney can explain the process of filing a personal injury claim.
A personal injury case has legitimacy when an accident takes place and a party or entity is responsible. For example, if you are injured in a car wreck that was caused by a drunk driver, this qualifies you to file a personal injury claim. The exact amount of money owed to you for your injury is determined by many factors, including the extent of the injury and the aftercare treatment that is necessary to help you make the fullest recovery possible.
It is important to understand that some personal injury cases can be settled without having to file a lawsuit; this is why it is imperative to have a legal representation. At the Fitch & Stahle Law Office, we can assess your case and determine whether or not a lawsuit needs to be filed. Please note that unlike a criminal lawsuit in which a government authority starts a case, a personal injury lawsuit is initiated by the injured party (you). And in some instances, you may have only a certain amount of time to file the lawsuit. If you have sustained a personal injury in Sioux City or South Sioux City, contact us today to learn more about making sure you meet any lawsuit deadlines.
