The Benefits of Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

While it may seem daunting to consider filing a lawsuit, it’s important to remember that by doing so, you may help protect others from getting injured by the person or people that were negligent or committed wrongdoings. Personal injury lawsuits send a powerful message that can’t be ignored and may ensure that a drunk driver, for example, doesn’t get behind the wheel intoxicated again, or that a nursing home changes its hiring procedures to keep residents safe.

In many cases, it may also be possible to file a personal injury claim in addition to any criminal charges in place. During the process of filing a civil claim, your personal injury lawyer may uncover unique details about the case that can help improve future policies or even laws due to the unique way that civil lawsuits tell a victim’s story and sometimes garner public attention.

Finally, the financial benefits of filing a personal injury lawsuit can’t be disregarded. A successful claim can bring a family relief in countless ways. Funds can go towards past, current, and future medical bills in addition to other recovery costs, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more. A lawsuit can’t undo the incident itself and the anguish it caused, but it can pave new recovery options and grant peace of mind.

If you feel you may have a potential claim, we encourage you to get in touch with the Lexington personal injury lawyers at Peterson Law Office today. We’re happy to speak to you about your case at no cost and help you determine if taking legal action is in your family’s best interest.
