What to Do If You’re Injured Due to Negligence
Step 1 is to seek medical treatment since proper medical care is essential to your recovery. Many people hesitate to seek medical treatment, because they are concerned about mounting medical bills or missing work. Do not make this mistake. A Leesburg personal injury lawyer can help you recover these expenses from the person who is legally responsible for causing them in the first place.
Step 2 is to contact Hilton &Somer for a free consultation to discuss the facts and circumstances surrounding your injury. You can come to our office, but we are just as happy to come to you. In fact, we have met countless clients in their homes, hospital rooms, and rehabilitation residences. We recognize how stressful the entire situation can be, so our goal is put your mind at ease as soon as possible.
When we meet, we will discuss how you got injured, the nature of your injuries, and your medical team’s plan for your recovery. This will give us an idea of whether your case is within our areas of expertise.
