Recovering after an injury can take a lot out of you, and as a Christian you may feel that turning the other cheek is the best path. However as 1 Timothy 5:8 says, “anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” Setting things right for your family is important, whatever your religion.
A good lawyer can help you and your family get back closer to where you were before you were injured. While nothing can take away the pain and suffering that you or your family member felt, recovering lost wages and other damages can ensure that your relatives and household are provided for. Personal injury law runs the gamut from vehicle accidents to dog bites and injuries can vary in severity from a slip-and-fall all the way to wrongful death. Whatever the cause, and whatever the severity, your family may be able to recover for your lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical expenses.
When You Are Supposed To Turn The Other Cheek?
Before contacting an attorney ask yourself these questions:
- Where did the injury occur? Was it on someone else’s property?
- Have I seen a doctor and how severe is the injury?
- Are there any extenuating circumstances, was I doing anything unsafe at the time?
- Did the owner of the place or the person who hurt me know about the danger?
- Was any of my property damaged when I was injured?
- Who was involved? Was the person who hurt me on the job at the time?
- Have I heard about a history of this sort of injury in the past? Did they know about the dangerous conditions?
Remember that our attorney is there to help you. You need to tell him everything, even facts which might seem to harm the case. Knowing about and being able to anticipate damaging facts beforehand can allow your attorney to take steps to minimize their impact. He may even be able to choose a different cause of action which avoids an issue entirely.
