An automobile crash or a slip and fall can change a person’s life in an instant. Such incidents can result in serious physical injuries, months of pain and suffering, and can have permanent, life-changing results. In some cases, the cause of this injury may be another person or a business, and this entitles the injured person to payment of damages by the person who caused the loss. However, securing the compensation to which a person is entitled can be a long and sometimes tricky process. There are many obstacles that injured persons must overcome in recovering their damages and they often have to do so while they are simultaneously receiving medical treatment and trying to return to their prior quality of life. The lawyers at Musgrove Drutz Kack & Flack, PC, are willing, in certain situations, to represent persons who have been injured on a contingency fee basis. This means that the injured person agrees to pay a certain percentage of any recovery to the lawyer, and the lawyer represents the injured person in seeking to recover from the person or entity that caused the injury. Legal representation in a personal injury case allows the injured person to focus on physically and emotionally recovering from his or her injuries. While an injured person will have to cooperate in any lawsuit, such as answering discovery requests or being deposed, the assistance of an attorney is very beneficial in dealing with insurance companies, developing the claim, and ensuring that the injured person receives a recovery that is commensurate with his or her damages and the fault of the wrongdoer. If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury that was the fault of another person or entity, the lawyers at Musgrove Drutz Kack & Flack, PC, may be able to help you. There are statutes of limitation that apply, which can bar such a claim, and thus it is imperative to contact a lawyer quickly about any claim you may have.
