Were You Hurt As A Result Of The Actions Of Another Person?

Personal Injury Lawyer

Were you hurt as a result of the actions of another person? Were they acting irresponsibly, negligently, or carelessly when this happened? Did it result in the loss of income, injuries, or emotional trauma? If so, then you might be able to seek compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. A personal injury case is different from pressing charges. These cases go to civil court where the plaintiff must pay for damages if found guilty. However, it can be hard to know whether your case is worth bringing to court. If you have questions, speaking with a personal injury lawyer can provide you valuable insight into whether there is evidence and tort law to support your claim. Consulting with a lawyer early can help your case. A few reasons you may want to hire a lawyer are:

  1. You have suffered significant injuries. If the actions of another person or entity caused you permanent or temporary disability, pain, suffering, or injury, then it can greatly impact your life. You may be unable to work while you recover or possibly ever. Losing income may impact your ability to maintain the standard of living you previously had. Hiring an attorney can allow you to focus on recovering while they fight for you in court.
  2. You can receive a larger settlement. Lawyers go to school to learn how to negotiate. They understand the law and more importantly, they know the judges and attorneys representing the other party. They will understand what negotiation tactics will be most effective given the people involved in your case. Lawyers are also experienced in determining the monetary value of both tangible and intangible losses. They may be aware of losses you suffered that you wouldn’t have considered otherwise.
  3. The insurance company isn’t cooperating. Ideally, the insurance company will take care of you in your time of need, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case. Insurance companies make more money the less they pay in claims and this sometimes leads them to offer less compensation than you deserve. Often, lawyers are thought of in the courtroom, but they also assist people dealing with insurance companies. They understand how to negotiate and can often get you larger settlements. 

Most personal injury lawyers operate on a contingency fee basis so there isn’t a cost if you don’t win the case. This makes pursuing your case an easier decision since you don’t have to pay legal fees if you are unsuccessful in winning your settlement.
