When to Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer

The idea of “personal injury” brings to mind an accident or negligent act that has caused physical harm. But did you know that the term also can refer to pain and suffering? If you are suffering due to the negligence of another, contact a personal injury lawyer at Silverthorne Attorneys.

Sometimes it is difficult for you to know if your situation warrants legal action. You may need to seek the assistance of a lawyer in the following types of cases:

  • Severe injuries, such as a dog bite, fall or car accident. An injury that seems minor at the time could cause continuing medical problems for which you would incur expenses. A lawyer can help determine if you should receive help paying such expenses.

Accidents in the home, on the road or at work, along with assaults and product defects, can be the basis for personal injury cases. Silverthorne Attorneys can help you determine if, due to the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.

You may need legal representation in the case of complex legal rules for your particular situation or serious injuries that might mean compensation would vary greatly from what is typical. Asking trusted friends or family members is one way to find referrals for legal representation. Once you get some names, interview anyone you think can be of assistance.
