When a person is seriously injured through the negligent or intentional act of someone else, he or she can institute a Personal Injury claim. There are several reasons why this should be pursued. A serious injury can significantly impact the quality of a person’s life. There are medical bills to consider, both present and future. This could include special equipment such as a wheelchair. The injury may result in a loss of income. This could already have been incurred, and there could also be an impact on future earnings. General damages must be considered. This includes the pain and trauma experienced or the permanent lifestyle changes as a result of the incident. A successful settlement can give a person the financial means to rebuild his or her life. Another reason a Personal Injury Claim is important is the more prevalent the practice of claiming becomes; the more careful people will be to prevent injuries in the first place.
Is legal help for a Personal Injury Claim affordable?
There is a public misconception that legal help is not affordable. At Paul du Plessis Attorneys this is not the case. Cases are managed on a No Win No Fee basis. The firm carries all expenses arising from investigating the claim. The costs for quantifying the claim, and ensuring it is appropriate, are also paid. It is important to quantify it properly as typically once the settlement is reached, it is not possible to re-open a claim at a later date. Paul du Plessis Attorneys have an excellent reputation for achieving appropriate settlements for their clients. Once the claim is settled successfully, the legal fees and expenses incurred are paid out of the settlement. If there is no settlement, then the claimant pays nothing. The attorneys carry this risk.
