An Augusta personal injury lawyer can do much more for you than simply file a case in court. The sooner you begin working with legal counsel, the sooner they can provide advice and representation that could make a tremendous difference in the outcome of your case.

In general, the best time to call for a consultation is right now. An experienced personal injury attorney could evaluate your circumstances, explain your options, and help you work toward obtaining full and fair compensation for your injuries.

Situations Where a Personal Injury Lawyer Could Help

Not everyone in Augusta realizes that a personal injury lawyer could help in situations beyond just auto wrecks. Depending on the circumstances, an Augusta personal injury attorney could fight for the interests of those suffering harm due to:

  • Defective consumer goods
  • Auto accidents involving trucks and other commercial vehicles, motorcycles, and/or pedestrians
  • Accidents on someone else’s property, including those stemming from failure to maintain appropriate security
  • Mistakes by a healthcare provider
  • Injuries at work
  • Animal attacks

If an injury causes the untimely death of a loved one, a legal representative could help with recovery through a wrongful death claim.

The Importance of Prompt Action

To recover after a personal injury, the filing party—or plaintiff—must provide evidence to show why the allegedly responsible person—the defendant—should be held liable for the consequences of that injury. The best time to collect and preserve evidence is usually right after the injury, since as time passes an accident scene will change, witnesses become harder to locate, and video footage of an event could be lost.

In the same vein, it is generally wise to secure representation from a personal injury attorney as soon as possible, since investigators and insurance representatives may try to take advantage of the situation. Assistance from a lawyer could prevent an accident victim from inadvertently taking action that could jeopardize their claim.

An attorney could also ensure that claims are prepared and filed within the deadline established by the statute of limitations. In most cases, if a lawsuit is not filed within two years, the right to seek recovery is lost.

Damages Could Cover a Range of Consequences

Those who suffer injuries in accidents and other situations involving legal negligence often endure a variety of negative consequences. They may miss time from their jobs, and their ability to work in the future may be compromised. There are usually costly medical bills involved, as well as the prospect of more care needed in the future. In the most extreme cases, accident victims may require caregivers or need modifications to their homes.

A personal injury lawyer in Augusta could calculate the value of these economic losses, including those projected for the future. Following that, an attorney may be able to use legal precedent as a tool to establish a value for intangible losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. The injured person could pursue damages for each of these factors regardless of whether a case proceeds to trial or settles out of court.

Contact a Dedicated Augusta Personal Injury Attorney

When you are trying to put your life back together after suffering traumatic injuries, the last thing you want to deal with is pressure from investigators and insurance companies. Fortunately, you could turn matters over to a dedicated Augusta personal injury lawyer so that you can focus your energy on healing.

Your personal injury attorney could serve as your advocate throughout the litigation process, fighting to protect your rights and your future. Call today to schedule a consultation and learn more about what may be possible in your case.
