Your Rights as a Personal Injury Victim

Your Rights as a Personal Injury Victim

You hear personal injury lawyers talking about fighting and standing up for your legal rights after an accident. You may wonder what exactly these rights are. Simply stated, your legal right is to get full compensation for your injuries when you can prove that someone else was responsible for your injuries.

In certain situations, someone whom you have never met owes you a duty to act reasonably towards you. It could be a driver passing by you on the road or the driver of the bus that you ride every day to work. They must act as a normal and reasonable person would under the circumstances. If they fail to uphold this duty, you must be made whole, whether it is through their insurance company or their own assets.

You Must Be Paid for Your Injuries

Of course, an insurance company or responsible party cannot restore your health to what it was before their carelessness or recklessness injured you. However, money is used as a yardstick to measure the impact of what they did. They must pay for your physical and monetary losses. They must also compensate you for what you have gone through since the accident and what you would continue to endure.

Like every attorney would tell you, the best way to protect your rights is to hire an attorney. You may not even know how much money you deserve and how to prove that someone else was responsible for your injuries. These are things that we do every day for injured clients just like you.
