When it comes to personal injury cases, experience is key to getting the best possible recovery.
If you have been hurt in an accident, you may be overwhelmed by your situation. You may have substantial pain and suffering and the need for ongoing medical treatment. Coupled with mounting bills and the potential of not being able to return to work, this time can be incredibly stressful. You know that you could probably recover money for your losses, but don’t know where to start. Who can you trust to get you the money you deserve?
Personal injury cases are unique from other types of law. Technically, any attorney can file a personal injury claim — but that does not mean that they will do a good job handling the case.
In a personal injury case, there are many moving parts. It typically starts with an investigation where an attorney can use his or her knowledge of the law to determine if there is a case — and if so, who can be sued. Next, a demand letter is put together and sent to the responsible party and/or their insurance company. Negotiations follow, and if a settlement cannot be reached, the case goes to trial.
Insurance companies are not in the business of just paying out awards for every claim that is filed. They maximize their profits by paying as little as possible on claims, or by denying them outright. They employ experienced adjusters and attorneys to reach these goals, who use a variety of tactics to minimize claims. If an insurance company has this level of experience on their team, don’t you want an attorney who knows these tricks and how to combat them?
A personal injury attorney with experience will make a difference right from the start of your case. They will understand the complexities of your case, and how to properly document and value your claim. Some damages are obvious and easy to tally up — like property damage or medical bills — but others are a lot harder to put a number on, like pain and suffering or emotional distress. A skilled personal injury attorney will understand exactly how to value your case — and how to put forward the best possible claim so you get the money you deserve.
From evaluating the merits of your claim to assessing who to sue, to negotiating with the insurance companies and convincing a judge and/or jury of the need for a verdict in your favor, a lawyer who has practiced for years in the field of personal injury will help you get the money that you need to recover and get your life back on track. A well-established personal injury attorney can often take cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you are never charged a fee unless you get a recovery. That can be a substantial asset to anyone who is struggling to pay bills in the aftermath of an accident.
