If you have suffered any kind of injury or loss through the fault of another party your first consideration after seeking any necessary medical attention of course, should be to contact a lawyer who has knowledge of the particulars associated with personal injury law. Not only will you want to be reassured by legal counsel asap, but there may be a statute of limitations that could have an influence on your case.

If your injury has inhibited your ability to work for instance, you may not have the sufficient savings to withstand the loss of your wages.
