At the Law Offices of Hodge and Snyder, the health of our clients is of utmost importance. Our goal is to help restore our client’s personal and financial loss that they’ve suffered at the hands of someone else’s negligence. Following an injury, and after you’ve made arrangements for medical attention, then contact us.
The road to recovery can be a long, uphill battle. Communicating with hospitals and insurance companies can often be an arduous chore. Whether your injury or your loved one’s injury was the result of an accident involving cars or boats, as a driver or a passenger or riding a bike or were a pedestrian, call us. If you were hurt in a store or on someone else’s property, we are well experienced in the many different facets of a personal injury claim.
When considering whether or not to pursue a personal injury claim there are a few factors to consider:
I’ve been in an accident, what should I do?
If you’ve been in an accident where injury has occurred it is important to first seek the proper medical attention. Many times people attempt to “walk off” an injury underestimating the potential seriousness of the situation. Many people have never sought legal counsel in the past and are hesitant to do so now. Once you have sought the proper medical attention it is important to follow up with any recommended medical treatment. Call us to discuss your situation. Getting your questions answered and knowing your rights and options is important. Let us help you.
How long will the process take?
In determining how long your injury claim may take to resolve, you must take into account the extent of your injuries and the time it will take to treat those injuries. The more extensive the injuries the longer the treatment process and the longer the treatment process the longer it may take for you to reach Maximum Medical Improvement. Maximum Medical Improvement (or “MMI”) refers to the point in your medical treatment beyond which you are not expected to get any better from further medical care. That is not to say that your medical treatment is finished. In many cases, you will still require ongoing treatment (e.g., medications, physical therapy, or assistive devices), but the continued treatment is intended to maintain your current level of health and functioning.
At MMI, you are better able to determine the full extent of the damages you have incurred due to the negligence of someone else’s actions and the potential cost of the effects of these damages facing you in the future.
What compensation am I eligible for?
Every personal injury case is different and must be approached with an outlook tailored for your specific requirements. This individualized method of making sure your claim is treated as a unique circumstance is not the exception but the standard of the Law Offices of Hodge and Snyder.
