What Are an Injury Victim’s Legal Rights?
Anyone – at any time – can be accidentally injured. When you’re injured suddenly and abruptly because of another person’s negligence, you are entitled by law to compensation for your medical treatment, your wages lost due to injury, and all of your other injury-related expenses.
You’ll need an experienced and savvy personal injury lawyer who can prove that you are entitled to that compensation. If you are injured by negligence in or near Northampton County, seek medical treatment first, and then speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer at KaplunMarx.
If an injury caused by another person’s negligence is a catastrophic or permanently disabling injury, a KaplunMarx personal injury lawyer will insist on monetary compensation that will be sufficient to pay for your treatment, surgeries, and rehabilitation for as long as you need it.
A personal injury attorney with KaplunMarx can represent you in a personal injury case arising from a traffic or workplace accident, a slip-and-fall on private property, or a medical malpractice incident. We also handle claims for the surviving family members of wrongful death victims.
Why You Need to Act Immediately After You’ve Been Injured
If you are the plaintiff in a personal injury case – that is, if you are the injury victim – a personal injury attorney at KaplunMarx will fight diligently to obtain the compensation and the justice that you need and deserve. But you cannot afford to wait. Here’s why.
In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the statute of limitations in a medical malpractice, personal injury, or wrongful death case is two years from the date of the injury, the malpractice incident, or the wrongful death. If you do not act within two years, you lose your right to file a claim.
Don’t wait for two years. If you can’t work because you’re injured, you’ll need to be compensated as quickly as possible. Furthermore, the longer you wait, the more difficult it becomes to prove an injury claim – that is, to link your injury to a specific incident or incidence of negligence.
Exactly What Cases Does Kaplunmarx Handle?
Any negligence by another person that results in an injury could conceivably be the basis for a personal injury claim. As you might guess, most personal injury claims are generated by traffic accidents – auto, bus, SUV, and truck collisions as well as bicycle and pedestrian accidents.
Personal injury law also covers injuries that happen on private property because a property owner was negligent – “premises liability” cases. If a neighbor’s dog bites you, or if you trip and you’re injured on your neighbor’s cracked sidewalk, you may have a premises liability claim.
Premises liability law also covers injuries that occur at stores, restaurants, hotels, and other privately-owned businesses. Poor lighting, slippery floors, falling merchandise, and even food poisoning could potentially be the basis for a premises liability claim.
What About Workplace Injuries?
KaplunMarx also represents the victims of job-related injuries. We can help you file a workers’ compensation claim, and if your claim is denied, we will handle the appeal. We routinely assist construction workers and other job-related injury victims obtain their workers’ comp benefits.
In some cases, you may be allowed to file a personal injury claim based on a workplace injury – if a third party had any responsibility for the accident that injured you. Your KaplunMarx attorney will review every detail of your case to determine if a third party may have liability.
And as mentioned above, we also represent the victims of medical malpractice and families with wrongful death claims. If you’ve been injured by negligence in or near Northampton County – or if you’ve lost a loved one because of negligence – talk to one of our attorneys promptly.
What is the Contingent Fee System and How Does It Work?
If you’re concerned about the cost of an attorney, don’t be. KaplunMarx handles personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases on a contingent fee basis, so you pay no lawyer’s fee unless and until we obtain an out-of-court settlement or a jury verdict on your behalf.
It’s a system that allows every injured victim of negligence to seek justice. The attorneys at KaplunMarx know what it takes to win against powerful defendants like insurance companies, corporations, and hospitals – and their attorneys.
Learning more doesn’t cost anything, either. Your first meeting with a Northampton County personal injury attorney at KaplunMarx is free, and there’s no obligation. You’ll learn how the law applies to your case, and your attorney will recommend the best way for you to proceed.
How Long Do Personal Injury Cases Take?
Most personal injury and wrongful death claims are resolved privately, out-of-court, often in just a few weeks or no more than several months. However, if the other side does not negotiate in good faith, and if no acceptable settlement is offered, we may suggest taking your case to court.
If your case does go to trial – and that’s not likely – it might take a year or even longer to resolve. At KaplunMarx, our experienced personal injury attorneys are dedicated to getting your compensation – every dollar that you are entitled to – into your hands as quickly as possible.
