If you or a loved one has recently been involved in a motor vehicle crash, slip and fall or any other type of accident, you should see a doctor right away. Although you have no visible injuries, you may be suffering from serious internal injuries such as bleeding and organ damage.
If another person’s negligence caused your internal injuries, you have a right to seek compensation for all medical expenses you incur to treat them. You may have other options available to you as well, including workers’ compensation or Social Security Disability benefits.
As one of the oldest and largest personal injury law firms in Virginia, Marks & Harrison has the skill, experience and resources you need when seeking a full recovery of your medical costs and other damages after suffering internal injuries through no fault of your own.
With offices located in Richmond and nine other cities throughout Virginia, we can meet with you today. Call or reach us online to get started with a free consultation.
Marks & Harrison can get to work on your case right away. If you have suffered internal injuries due to the suspected negligence of another, we can conduct an immediate investigation of your case.
The goal of our investigation will be to determine how you suffered your internal injuries and who should be held responsible for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages.
Our firm features experienced investigators who know how to gather important evidence in accident and injury cases. We also work with highly qualified experts who can help us to determine the nature and extent of your internal injuries.
We will pursue all of your legal options, which may include:
When you are in a car, truck or motorcycle collision – or struck by a car as a bicyclist or pedestrian – you suffer blunt trauma to the body. The same trauma occurs when you suffer a fall or get struck by an object.
The impact may leave you with only minor cuts, bumps or bruises on the outside. As a result, you may think you have suffered no serious harm and see no need to get checked by a doctor.
However, inside your body, you may have suffered major internal damage caused by your body’s absorption of the force of the impact. Areas of your body that may have been impacted include:
The reality is that most of us do not know whether we have suffered these or other internal injuries due to an accident. This is the main reason why you should always go to the emergency room or get examined by your primary care physician after you have been involved in an accident of any kind.
However, there is another highly important reason: Protecting your legal rights. An insurance company will look for every opportunity to deny a claim or diminish the amount you receive. When you fail to see a doctor and get your injuries diagnosed – including internal injuries – it gives the insurance company the opportunity to argue that your injuries are either unrelated to your accident or not as severe as you claim.
If you are concerned about affording medical treatment or believe your insurance company is forcing you to see a doctor that is not your choice, contact Marks & Harrison for immediate legal assistance.
You will have no idea if you have suffered serious internal injury in an accident unless you see a doctor. You also will have no idea about your legal rights and options unless you meet with an experienced lawyer.
Marks & Harrison is ready to help you. Our goal will be to secure the maximum amount of compensation and/or benefits for you and your family.
