There are few things more disconcerting than being injured at the hands of a negligent party. However, it happens, and the chances of accidents occurring in a huge city like Washington D.C. are even higher. That is why if you are someone who has recently sustained a traumatic injury, you are most likely now looking into recovering financial compensation. Please read on and speak with our experienced Washington D.C. personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help.
How do most injuries happen in Washington D.C.?
Our firm has seen lots of injuries happen through the years, though the most common types of injuries are either sustained in auto accidents or serious fall/premises liability accidents. Auto accidents, of course, include cars, trucks, motorcycles, Uber/Lyft accidents, and more. On the other hand, serious falls and other premises liability-related accidents can occur just about anywhere, including supermarkets, parking lots, elevators, sidewalks, and more.
What injuries can I sue another person for?
Though most of us are fortunate enough after a car accident or serious fall that we are not seriously injured. However, this is not the case for everyone. Some of the most serious–yet not uncommon–types of injuries sustained in these accidents can include broken bones, spinal injuries, nerve damage, PTSD, permanent scarring, brain injuries, and more. Fortunately, the system in place makes it so that you do not have to suffer through these injuries alone. We can help you via filing a personal injury claim.
Why do I need to hire a personal injury attorney to file a lawsuit?
First, you will need an attorney who can determine the party liable, or responsible, for the injuries you have sustained. This is oftentimes more challenging when dealing with premises or product liability cases. Once your attorney does so, he or she will have to then gather various types of evidence, arrange it, and present it as efficiently as possible. Though it is always best to take pictures or videos at the scene of the accident, this is not always possible, in which case our firm will work to subpoena security camera footage of your accident, if need be. Keep in mind that since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Washington D.C. is three years, you will only have three years from the date of your accident to file a claim, so you must act fast–do not put it off. We are here to help.
