If you have been injured in an accident, you may be able to hire a personal injury attorney who can help you receive compensation for your injuries, as well as other damages.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
It goes without saying that your attorney will work on your behalf throughout the legal process, doing whatever it takes to get you the money you deserve. However, this is just one part of what your attorney brings to the table. It can be helpful to understand exactly what your lawyer is doing for you, so you know just how valuable one is to your case.
Here are a few other things you can expect from your injury lawyer:
- Your attorney will be available to answer your questions, helping you better understand your case and how to move forward, based on the details.
- With an attorney on your side, you never have to deal with insurance companies or other third parties on your own – your legal team will handle all this for you.
- Somebody to lean on when you are down and out, wondering what is going to happen next.
- An expert who can help you calculate the value of your case. Some personal injury cases receive a settlement offer. But, you cannot know how fair an offer is until you determine the total value of your damages, as well as any non-economic costs. Your lawyer can also help you evaluate any offers.
- Defend your injuries. The other party, or their insurance company, will sometimes try to minimize your damages, so they don’t have to pay as much. Your lawyer is on your side, defending your injuries.
- Build your case. Demonstrating negligence in a personal injury case requires the collection of certain evidence, as well as witnesses. Let us do this work for you.
- Take your case to trial. Your case may or may not go to trial. If it does, your lawyer will help you prepare, so you know what to expect.
- Ensure timely payment. Even once you are awarded a settlement offer, the insurance company can take a while to pay. We know how important timely payment is so you can pay bills and receive any medical treatments that you might need. We will not only represent you during the case, but also after, ensuring you receive payment.
