To win a personal injury suit, you as the plaintiff have to prove that your injuries are caused by the negligent act of another person or company. In North Dakota, you can recover damages for your injuries as long as your share of the fault does not go over 50%. If you talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer, he will be able to determine if you are eligible to claim damages and if you have a strong case.
Get Good Medical Care First!
Seeking prompt medical care is the single most important thing to do if you get into an accident. Focus first on your recovery so as to avoid further complications and aggravating your injuries. In most cases, the victim needs to fully recover from his injuries before the case can proceed. When you speak to your doctor, let him know that you are filing a claim so that you will receive the best medical care. Talk to him about your injuries, your medical history and all the pain and symptoms you are experiencing before and after the accident. If you need ongoing medical care or if you need to undergo a future medical procedure as a result of your accident, have your doctor include it in his report with the costs. Your attorney will be coordinating with your doctor regarding the documents needed in your claim.
Let Our Lawyer Handle the Rest!
When you sign a lawyer to handle your claim, communications with the defendants or their attorneys automatically becomes your attorney’s responsibility. Let him do the work and avoid talking to the insurance adjusters or any other lawyers aside from your own. They will try their best to get you to accept their offer and it is usually significantly less than what your attorney can recover for you. Always refer them to your lawyer if they try to communicate with you.
