When an Accident Happens, You Need Personal Injury Services
Accidents can occur in the blink of an eye. Sometimes we’re responsible for an accident due to our own carelessness. In other situations, someone else’s carelessness, negligence or recklessness is the cause, which is why personal injury lawsuits exist. Accidents occur without warning, and can happen during a commute to work, while running errands or during one of the many menial tasks we perform every day.
Unfortunately, one major accident can derail the course of normal life and drastically alter your future. The term “personal injury” can mean many different things, and can be viewed from many different levels, including that of a distracted driver, incompetent doctor or even the manufacturing of a faulty or dangerous product. When carelessness or reckless conduct causes an accident, the injured parties are legally entitled to compensation for their losses from the responsible party.
If you or a loved one has been injured in any way due to the negligence of someone else, it is always in your best interest to contact the best personal injury attorney to handle your claim. Avrek Law Firm’s skilled legal team combines more than 50 years of experience handling personal injury cases and fighting for victims’ rights to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries.

How Do Personal Injury Accident Claims Occur?
Any type of personal injury may be compensable if it has been caused by the negligence of someone else. Often, personal injury claims arise in situations including:
- Auto Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
- Premises Liability/Slip and Fall Accidents
- Dog Bites
- Elder Abuse
- Defective Products
- Medical Malpractice
- Burn Injuries
In a perfect world, compensation for personal injury cases would be paid promptly and in-full to accident victims. However, since any type of personal injury claim can be complicated, you’re likely to face a fight from the insurance companies involved while you recover from your injuries. Contacting a top personal injury attorney helps sort through the details of your specific claim with an expert who knows how to deal with the red tape insurance companies use to discourage someone from pursuing compensation.
The amount of personal injury compensation will vary depending on the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident. Damage amounts are affected by the type of injury suffered, the extent of the injury itself and the time it takes for the victim to recover. Common types of personal injury compensation can include:
- Current and future medical bills and rehabilitation
- Lost income
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of quality or enjoyment of life
- Property loss
The outcome of harm inflicted by a personal injury case can be catastrophic in terms of the toll it takes on the health and well-being of you and your family, as well as the significant past and future medical costs you may incur. The bottom line? There is no need to take on an extra financial burden from an injury that has been caused by someone else.

Frequently Asked Questions
It is always best to call an experienced personal injury attorney to determine if you have a case. Sometimes people do not realize they even have a claim until they speak with someone that knows the ins and outs of the personal injury field. An attorney will be able to tell you whom you can file a claim against and what you can expect to recover. In most situations, you will have a case if someone acted negligently and that action resulted in your injury.
The statute of limitations to file a personal injury claim varies from state to state. It can also vary based on who can be found at fault for the accident. It is crucial that you call an attorney right away if you are involved in a personal injury accident so that you can properly file your claim in time. In California, for example, the statute of limitations for an accident is two years, but this statute can change if a public entity is found at fault, limiting the statute to only six months.
There is no clear answer on how long a personal injury case will take to settle. More serious injuries take longer to treat and heal, which prolongs the lifespan of your case. Negotiations between your attorney and the insurance company can also take some time, especially when the two sides do not agree on the value of the case. Talking to a lawyer will help you estimate how long your case will take from start to finish.
When it comes to the matter of personal injury, you should never be worried about how you will pay for an attorney. Avrek Law Firm takes every case on a contingency basis, meaning you do not owe us anything until your case is settled. Once your case is settled and the settlement check is received, then the attorney fee portion is paid directly from the settlement. The amount of the attorney fee is agreed upon at the start of your case when you sign up with the firm.
