5 good reasons to file a personal injury claim

By Ken Gibson on October 21, 2016

Have you ever been hurt in a wreck, and wondered if you should file a personal injury claim?

While some people think that filing a personal injury claim is like trying to win the lottery, here’s the real story: If you or a loved one is seriously hurt (or killed) in an accident, a personal injury claim may be the only path for you and your family to stay afloat during extraordinarily difficult circumstances.

Good reasons to file a personal injury claim include the following needs:

  1. To recover lost wages when injuries keep you from working.
  2. To pay medical bills, which can add up quickly and can run into the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars.
  3. To handle future expenses from ongoing treatment or therapy.
  4. To provide future financial security if the victim is unable to work for an extended time or permanently.
  5. To provide financial support to help pay for lifestyle adjustments resulting from a permanent disability.

Bottom line: compensation from a personal injury settlement can help an innocent victim handle the life-altering changes caused by someone else’s negligence.
