With Washington, DC, being such a hub of activity, personal injury lawsuits are common. At Schleifman Law, our experienced personal injury lawyers are well versed in navigating the complicated process of filing such a lawsuit. Personal injury claims arise because of negligent or reckless behaviour of a person or business, which results in an individual suffering a physical, emotional or mental injury.

You can file a lawsuit against another party if they inflict any of the following on you:

  • Bodily / physical injury or harm.
  • Trauma.
  • Mental anguish.
  • Embarrassment.
  • Pain and suffering.

If you have suffered personal injuries because of another party’s actions, it’s best to seek out the advice and guidance of a qualified personal injury attorney, before processing your claim. The process can be further complicated by filing your claim too soon: injuries can possibly only present later. On the other hand, filing your claim too late can result in it being barred by the statute of limitations. Furthermore, all the various laws that govern each respective state must also be considered, as laws vary from state to state. A professional personal accident lawyer in Washington, DC, will be familiar with the law and ensure that you follow the correct course of action when filing your claim.

Once your lawyer has proven that your injuries are a result of the accused’s actions, you can be correctly and suitably compensated for your physical injury as well as economic and non-economic damage. In many cases, external parties like insurance providers and employers will be required to bear witness. Your attorney will ensure that all required parties are prepared and available for your case. It is important to seek out legal aid soon after sustaining an injury, so that you can follow the correct steps towards sufficient compensation.
