Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 28, 2006
Most personal injury victims are facing once-in-a-lifetime circumstances, and so aren’t familiar with personal injury law, the insurance claims process, case valuation, statutes of limitations, and all of the other important but technical information that factors into the viability and valuation of a personal injury case.
The issues become even more complicated because laws and procedures vary from state to state, so even accurate information a personal injury victim has heard from a relative or seen on the news may be misleading. Total Injury strives to provide accurate, easy-to-understand information to help personal injury victims understand their rights and options, and to connect them with local personal injury attorneys who provide free consultations.
On the Total Injury website, personal injury victims can learn about the typical steps in a personal injury case. At the same time, most will be relieved to discover that the vast majority of personal injury claims settle before trial.
Finally, since most personal injury victims are concerned about the value of their claims, Total Injury provides a resource explaining the factors that play into the valuation of a personal injury claim, and a round-up of personal injury verdicts from news sources across the country.
These brief descriptions of injuries, settlements and verdicts from numerous states illustrate the range of cases personal injury lawyers handle. Recent verdicts truly cover the spectrum, from a $25,000 award to a mail carrier bitten by a dog to a $26.8 million dollar verdict in favor of a woman injured in a collision with a police car. Personal injury victims can read about cases similar to their own: car accidents, slip and fall injuries, bicycle injuries, workplace mishaps, and more.
