4 Instances to Consult a Personal Injury Lawyer

For certain personal injury claims, you want to be sure that you consult a lawyer.  Experienced attorney Doug Lauenstein explains specific situations that require the assistance of such.

Consulting a lawyer can be useful in many legal situations, especially those in which complex laws or high compensation is involved:

Disabling Injuries
In some cases, an accident can have negative effects on your physical abilities and leave you disabled for an extended period of time, or indefinitely.  In these cases, it is extremely difficult to quantify what the injury is worth.  With the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, you may be able to receive the most out of your specific claim.

Severe Injuries
In general, accident-compensation is calculated based on the extent of your injuries.  This is measured by the medical bills, recovery time and the type of injuries sustained.  Overall, the higher the compensation that a case may carry, the wider the range of which the compensation may fall.  This presents a situation in which it is beneficial to have a personal injury lawyer review your case.

Medical Malpractice
This describes any injuries incurred due to the carelessness of a doctor, nurse or other medical provider.  Medical malpractice injuries should always involve the help of an experienced lawyer due to the complex nature of the medical questions and regulations that are involved with most cases.

Toxic Exposure
Becoming ill due to chemical exposure is often very difficult to prove and usually requires scientific data.  Additionally, chemical-related industries have taken many steps to protect themselves from legal battles so it is very important to have an experienced attorney on your side.
