Our Law Firm Gets Asked Everday…
Personal injury law gives victims the right to file a civil lawsuit against the negligent parties that have caused them harm. Because this is a civil matter, the defendant will not be found guilty or not guilty at the end of the case. Instead, the defendant may be ordered to compensate the victim for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Many personal injury cases—around 95% of them, in fact—are settled outside of the courtroom in pretrial negotiations.
With so many personal injury law firms in the area, you may be wondering how to choose the right attorney. You can find personal injury attorneys in your area by asking the local bar association, friends, or family members for recommendations. Once you get a short list of names from these sources, do your own research online by looking up each attorney’s reviews. In general, it’s a good idea to cross an attorney’s name off of your list if he or she has countless negative reviews online. Narrow down your list to a handful of attorneys and then schedule a free consultation with each of these legal professionals. Before you attend the meeting, prepare a list of questions to ask. First, you will need to find out how many years of experience the attorney has practicing personal injury law.
Then, ask how experienced he or she is in cases similar to yours. For instance, if you have been injured in a car accident, you should not work with an attorney who primarily handles medical malpractice cases. You will also need to know how much compensation each attorney typically is able to recover for clients in cases that are similar to yours.
Finally, learn more about the law firm before making your decision. Who’ll you be communicating with if you choose to hire the firm? How often will you be updated about the status of your case? Has the law firm won any awards? After hearing each attorney answer all of these questions, you should have a better idea of who you should hire.
If you’ve been injured, you may be asking yourself “What is a personal injury attorney?” or “Why do I need to hire a personal injury attorney?” It’s imperative that you understand the importance of working with a personal injury attorney if you are filing a personal injury claim.While you recover from your injuries, your attorney will be hard at work investigating your case to gather enough evidence to prove that the other party is liable. Then, an attorney will get to work calculating the value of your claim by estimating future medical expenses and lost wages and quantifying your emotional distress.
Your attorney will then begin the process of negotiating with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Because you have an experienced legal professional on your side, the insurance company won’t try any of their usual tricks that they otherwise would if you were negotiating a settlement without an attorney. For example, the insurance company will know better than to try to get you to answer misleading questions with an attorney around. As a result, you will be able to recover the compensation that you deserve instead of being tricked or pressured into accepting a settlement that is far less than you deserve.
