Car accidents and the catastrophic injuries they cause are more common than most drivers realize. The consequences of such a crash can ripple throughout your life, either in the form of injury, lost wages, or something else.
Accident-related injuries are the leading cause of medical debt in the United States. These medical expenses are often unexpected, costly, and lead those suffering injuries to take on more debt than they can pay off.
These medical bills are in addition to other expenses, like your mortgage, bills, and other payments. They may also come when you are unable to work because of the injury.
You have the option to file a personal injury claim to get compensation for all of these costs. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, Biggs & Greenslade can help.

Filing a personal injury lawsuit will allow you to sue for compensation. Depending on the nature of your case, a judge or jury will award you damages to cover your expenses related to the accident.
After a car accident, your vehicle may be damaged or totaled. You may have also lost other valuable property. Normally an insurance claim will cover this, but it can also be part of a personal injury suit.
Medical expenses after an accident can be astronomical, especially if you require surgery or physical therapy. As part of your suit, Biggs & Greenslade will fight to get compensation for all of your medical expenses–now and in the future.
Your injury may force you to miss work, and you can seek compensation for those lost wages. You can also seek compensation for wages you may lose in the future because your injury prevents you from working.
Judges and juries may award you compensation for the pain and suffering your injury caused you. This can be either physical or emotional pain. There’s no limit to how much they may award, but larger amounts are normally levied to punish the negligent party.
Sometimes, the person who causes the accident is so negligent that a judge or jury will award you compensation purely to punish them. If we think we can get punitive damages, our attorneys will pursue it.
The first step is to schedule your consultation with Biggs & Greenslade. This is entirely free and can help you understand the specifics of your accident better.
During your consultation, the attorneys at Biggs & Greenslade will gather information about your accident. We’ll then help you decide whether to file a personal injury suit.

This ensures that your attorney fights to the best of their ability for your case. It also means that you pay them nothing out of pocket.
If you or anyone else sustained an injury in an accident that wasn’t wholly your fault, you could benefit from at least consulting with an accident attorney. They can help you understand the next steps you can take.

Your case may take some time to fully resolve. Your lawyer will want to ensure that you’ve completed all necessary medical treatment. This ensures that you get properly compensated for its cost–now and in the future.
Most personal injury lawsuits are settled out of court. However, it is possible that yours goes to trial. Before doing so, your lawyers will advise you about why they think going to trial is the best option.
But going to trial is optional. If you’d rather take the settlement against your lawyer’s advice, you are free to do so.
It’s impossible to tell how much you can get compensated. Everything depends on the accident, your medical expenses, lost wages, and other factors.
