Welcome to the personal injury FAQ for Chalik Law. On this page, you’ll find frequently asked questions about personal injury law and what to do after you’ve been injured. This is general advice and should not be considered legal advice.
Personal injury is a broad category of law. There are so many ways that our bodies and minds can become injured. Transportation, work, and even birth are just some of the sources. The whole idea behind personal injury law is that people who are hurt due to the negligence or willful action of others deserve the money to be “made whole”, which means to be paid enough that you’re brought as close as possible to how you were before you were injured.
Of course, sometimes this isn’t possible. To take an extreme example, no amount of money can bring a person back to life. But it can cover medical and funeral expenses, lost income to the home due to their passing, and provide enough financial security that the family can focus on grieving and moving on, not surviving.
The first step in any personal injury case is to get medical attention. After you have been seen by a doctor, then call a personal injury lawyer to talk about your case. In some cases, you may need to speak with an insurance company as well. Your lawyer can advise you on how to approach them so you can get the settlement amount you deserve. If they will not pay, they will fight for you.
