What To Do If You’ve Been Personally Injured
If you’ve experience a personal injury in Battle Creek, Michigan, it is important that you seek medical care as soon as possible after your accident. In some cases, such as with traumatic brain injury, symptoms may not immediately appear. It is important that you follow the instructions of your doctors and follow through with all follow-up appointments. Not doing so may compromise your ability to make a claim with the help of a Battle Creek personal injury lawyer.
If you’ve suffered a slip and fall or other accident and are experiencing mood changes, memory difficulties, sleep problems, dizziness, balance problems, or other issues, you may want to consult with your doctor about the possibility of mild traumatic brain injury. Post traumatic stress disorder is sometimes also not diagnosed immediately after an accident. If you have difficulty being in situations where your accident took place, are experiencing heightened levels of anxiety, or other emotional problems, it may be a good idea to speak to a doctor.
What is My Claim Worth?
The value of your claim depends on many factors. Your Battle Creek personal injury lawyer will make an assessment of your claim based on your medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, and lost wages. Your lawyer may also assess pain and suffering damages. Unlike medical expenses and lost wages values, pain and suffering estimates are more subjective and are based on the severity of your injury and how life-altering your injury will be. When assessing pain and suffering amounts, a personal injury attorney will ask you about lifestyle changes, and about your life before and after your injury. Depending on your answers, your accident lawyer will perform a calculation using a formula to estimate your damages.
