Why Permanent Disability Cases Are Often Tricky
The American civil justice system is set up to protect the rights of both the plaintiff (the party filing a claim) and the defendant (the party against whom a claim is being filed). According to this system, the plaintiff is given every opportunity to seek damages - monetary compensation for his or her losses and expenses - in a timely and expedient fashion. However, the system also protects the defendant from having a metaphorical sword from dangling perpetually over his or her head. This is why there are laws establishing time limits within which personal injury cases must be filed (statutes of limitations), as well as laws preventing multiple claims for a single incident. In other words, to use an age-old legal saying, plaintiffs get “one bite at the apple.”
As an injured victim, if you take your one bite at the apple, and you fail to get your full mouthful, you are not allowed another bite. In more literal terms, you need a lawyer who is able to identify and pursue all of the compensation to which you are entitled right now because there will be no second chance. If you or your loved one discovers in ten years that your lawyer did not anticipate a certain medical or home care expense, you will have no legal recourse to recover compensation for that expense. You will have to cover that expense on your own.
That is why it is so important to hire attorneys who are able to identify, within reason, the future losses and expenses that your or your loved one’s permanent disability will involve. While it may not be possible to anticipate every single expense that will arise, our lawyers have the ability to identify those that are most likely to occur. Accounting for those expenses will help to ensure that your financial future is not jeopardized from the start by a poorly executed personal injury lawsuit.
