My husband was in an accident a few years back. It was not his fault. He was hurt on someone else property. He was out of work and had medical bills piling up. When you are going through something like this it is so stressful and you have so much going on you do not know what to do. That is when you contact a personal injury lawyer. He had bills from the day of the accident. When he had left the hospital they told him his leg was badly sprained and bruised. The following day the hospital called and they had another doctor reread the X-rays and his leg was broke. Now we had to worry about the expenses of getting his leg casted and also for crutches. We also had to have him see a specialist. These bills added up very fast and can be very stressful.
My husband’s accident happened a little over 8 years ago, and we used a recommended attorney we had heard of through a friend. However, it is a lot easier to go online and search. For example, if you live in the Tampa area, you could do a search for personal injury attorneys in Tampa and find the office of Winters and Yonker. They even have an online chat window where you can talk to someone about setting up a consultation.
His attorney dealt with the insurance company of the homeowners that insured the property. It is helpful to have an advocate because they know the ins and outs and can help get you more compensation than if you did this on your own. They take into consideration the costs from your hospital and rehabilitation, loss of pay as well as problems that you may face down the road. They will look at your medical records and also help get you evaluated and see a physician. You need to have all your paperwork, bills and whatever you have available and the attorney will get the rest. Make sure to keep a list of doctors names and numbers for your lawyer. If you live in Tampa, for example, Tampa injury attorneys, like Winters and Yonker, can help you find doctors in your area that will be covered by your insurance to be able to get treatment without being denied It is always easier having an advocate help you get things processed quicker and easier.
