How Serious Does Your Injury Need to Be to Call a Lawyer?

Some people are hesitant to file injury claims after they get hurt, especially if they believe their injuries aren’t serious. But serious is a subjective term, especially when it comes to injuries. Even an injury that’s relatively minor can result in major expenses.

For example, repetitive stress injuries occur over a long period and involve minor damage accumulating and worsening over time. But eventually, victims may become fully disabled by them. The same is true for many types of personal injuries.

It’s not uncommon for victims of auto accidents or medical malpractice to initially have mild symptoms, only for those symptoms to either worsen or become nagging to the point where they can no longer work or enjoy their lives. Although their initial medical bills may be low and their injuries described as “minor,” they still deserve significant compensation for how their injuries have affected them.

We know that no two injuries are alike, and some serious injuries may be recovered from more quickly and completely than injuries that appear minor or inconsequential in comparison.
