Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

An experienced person injury lawyer understands the law and has the ability to represent his client in legal proceedings for compensation owed to the client because of another person's negligence. After suffering from the negligence of another (e.g., dog bite, car accident, or a slip and fall), an injured person should contact a personal injury attorney. An experienced personal injury can successfully maximize your recovery by taking the necessary steps.

An experienced personal injury lawyer understands how to navigate complex negotiations with big insurance companies. The personal injury lawyer needs to understand a client's injuries and the drastic effects of those injuries to the client's life. Knowing this, the personal injury attorney can better ascertain the value of the client's case. Next, the experienced personal injury attorney will not buckle for lowball offers from the big insurance. And, when the big insurance companies refuse to pay fair compensation for the client's injuries, the experienced personal injury lawyer will sue to obtain a maximum award.

Car Accident-Related Personal Injuries

Accidents involving negligence can arise in the following ways:

  • A car hit by another car;

  • A pedestrian hit by a car while walking or jogging;

  • A person hit by a car while on a bicycle;

  • A person hit by a car while on a motorcycle;

  • Falling on an uneven sidewalk;

  • Tripping, slipping, and falling in a business or retail space (the mall, the grocery store)

  • Assault

  • Sexual assault

A personal injury is any type of injury that a person experiences due to an accident. As illustrated above, there are numerous ways and places that a person can be hurt, resulting in a personal injury case. These injuries can be serious or minor, temporary or permanent.

Investigating Claims - A Personal Injury Lawyer Must

An experienced personal injury lawyer knows that investigating a claim thoroughly is crucial to the success of the case. The personal injury attorney needs to obtain necessary information to recover the maximum amount of compensation from the at-fault insurance company. Investigating a case thoroughly may include performing an open records request, obtaining video footage, surveying the scene of an accident, contacting witnesses, and/or hiring a private investigator. Insurance companies will find any reason to deny liability on the part of their insured. Thus, a complete investigation is necessary to defeat any argument that the injured person was liable.
