If you have been injured because of someone else’s negligence, you may deserve compensation for your injuries, including your pain and suffering, both physical and mental, and for your costs. Medical bills add up quickly and your ability to work may have also been diminished. A personal injury attorney can help you to restore your quality of life.

How can a personal injury attorney in Burbank, Glendale, and Los Angeles, like Akopyan Law, help you? Here are five things that you should know about personal injury law:

1)  Broad types of injuries

Personal injury law covers many types of injuries. Car accidents, pedestrian injuries, dog bites, medical malpractice, injuries from a product defect, negligence, and slip and fall accidents are all covered under the umbrella of personal injury law. Speak with a personal injury attorney to find out if you can be compensated for your injury.

2)  It is not just about medical bills

Your damages go far beyond just the medical bills that are piling up. If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, or carelessness, then you deserve to have your quality of life restored back to what it was before the injury occurred. You may be entitled to recover compensation for all of the pain, anguish, and stress that the injury has caused you and your family. Speak with a good personal injury attorney to determine your rights.

3)  Hold the Wrongdoers Responsible

A personal injury attorney can help you make sure that the person or organization that caused your injury is held responsible for their wrongdoing. By properly punishing the wrongdoer for their negligence, you will be taking steps to ensuring that what happened to you does not happen to someone else.

4)  A Personal Injury Attorney Can Help Protect your Rights

If you have suffered an injury because of someone else’s negligence, the last thing you may be thinking is filing a lawsuit, since you are focused on your recovery. However, it is important to be sure that you consult with a personal injury attorney because there are statute of limitations, i.e. deadlines that you must follow otherwise you can lose your right to file a lawsuit to recover for your injuries. A personal injury attorney will know what your deadlines are and will help you protect your rights. Consult with a personal injury attorney to avoid missing any deadlines that are applicable to you.

5)  Experts

Depending on the type of injury, the type of accident, the extent of harm, etc., your personal injury attorney may conclude that you need to hire experts for the time of trial. This decision is made on a case-by-case basis and it is important that you work alongside your attorney to have the suitable experts for your case. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will know when and what experts will be required for your case.
