Next, a claim requires some sort of injury to a human being. A personal injury claim does not include injury to your car or some other non human object. It has to be an injury to your body. The Robert Hahn Law Firm routinely handles car accident cases involving serious injuries. In such cases, there is usually a corresponding property damage claim. Our firm will provide assistance in resolving property damage as a courtesy to our clients while we are also handling their bodily injury claims.
So what exactly constitutes an injury?
A civil claim can be made when you have any sort of injury to your body which necessitates medical treatment. While the law does not actually require that there be medical treatment, both juries and insurance companies expect you to seek medical treatment before they will believe that an actual injury occurred. If your injury is such that you don’t feel it’s serious enough to go to the doctor or hospital, then you should really consider yourself lucky and not think further about pursuing an injury claim.
What I Think of Sue-Happy People
For those who might feel like a hypocrite making a claim if they have previously criticized “sue-happy” people, I have an easy answer: there’s a huge difference between valid injury claims and what I like to call frivolous claims. Frivolous lawsuits—like suing the cleaners for a million dollars for losing your pants—give the legal profession a bad name and negatively affect the public perception of the injury claims process.
I’d like to point out that I am not sue-happy either and I flat-out hate unnecessary or frivolous litigation. I refuse to represent people who wish to pursue these types of lawsuits. I respect my profession and the legal system way too much for that kind of nonsense, so I only represent clients with valid and legitimate claims. Chances are if you care enough about your situation to research by reading through my website and articles, you are probably not the type of person who wants to pursue a frivolous claim.
I would also like to mention that valid claims are pursued every day by those from all walks of society. I have had the privilege of representing all races and ethnicities, as well as those with all sorts of financial backgrounds, education levels—even different political affiliations! The point of all this is that all types of people bring claims and your decision to bring a claim or a lawsuit does not mean that you are sue-happy. All it means is that you’re trying to obtain fair compensation to get yourself back to the way you were before your unfortunate accident wrecked your life.
