There are a number of ways that a person can be injured due to someone else’s fault. Motor vehicle accidents (car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle), ATV accidents, dog bites, and “slip or trip and falls” happen all the time. Some cause minor injuries that heal relatively quickly. Others cause serious injuries, permanent impairment, and losses that can last a lifetime. Given that there are many types of personal injury claims and that the severity of injuries can range so much, how do you know when you should hire a personal injury lawyer?
