A good personal injury attorney represents victims who have been injured because of medical mal practice, falls in a public place, being harassed by collection companies, being denied benefits, or car accidents. If you are not sure if your case requires help from a personal injury attorney, you should have a consultation with a lawyer to find out if he or she can help you. You may have been injured at work, in a public place, or while visiting someone. If you have been bitten by a neighbor’s pet, fallen due to a wet floor in a grocery store, or have been harassed to pay debts that you do not owe, a personal injury attorney can be of assistance. Even if you have a good reason to believe that you may need a lawyer, you should contact a lawyer so that you can be aware of your options.
There may be laws that may protect you that you are not aware exist. For example there is a law in place to protect people from being harassed by debt collectors. It is against the law for a debt collector to harass someone for money.Lipcon & Lipcon, P.A.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home, you should contact a personal injury attorney if you believe that the person has been abused or neglected. In some cases, patients in nursing homes have died as a result of abuse and neglect by care providers. Your loved ones may have been victims of physical or emotion abuse in the home. Some of the patients may also have bed sores or suffer from vitamin deficits, because they are not properly fed in the nursing home or the facility. Families of patients who have been injured or who have died in nursing homes or assisted living facilities as a result of improper care, should contact a personal injury attorney to file a claim.
Patients who have been prescribed medication or have taken some over-the-counter medications probably may have the basis of a suit if the medication has some ingredients, which may be harmful to people. People who have particular pre-existing incidents are also at risk. People who become hurt after using some mechanical products should contact a lawyer. For example harm from vehicles that are prone to roll over, factory equipment that is defective or defective toys may be the basis of claims. If possible, bring photographs of the defective equipment and photographs of injuries sustained when consulting with a lawyer.
