Why Should I Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Just about every injury lawsuit utilizes negligence to prove another party is responsible in causing your injury. Negligence can be thought of as the failure to take reasonable care to protect others. In this particular type of lawsuit, a lawyer must be able to prove that the other person owed their client a duty to act with reasonable care. Some common examples include a driver of a vehicle owing a duty of care to other driver(s) on the road and doctors owing a duty of care to their patient(s). In addition to this, an attorney must also be able to prove that the negligent party failed to meet a standard of care and the injury directly resulted from this failure.
The final piece is proving that their client has actually suffered damages. These damages can be either economic (medical expenses) or non-economic losses (pain and suffering) that occurred because of the defendant’s negligence. Many people are hesitant to contact a personal injury attorney after suffering an injury. The assumption is that hiring a lawyer will cut into the compensation they could potentially receive. However, numerous studies have shown that injured victims still recover more compensation than those who attempt to settle without an attorney. In fact, it’s been shown that insurance companies encourage telling their clients that a lawyer is not necessary because it saves them 200-300% in payouts. Here’s a few ways that we can help you!
- Collecting witness statements
- Conducting accident reconstruction investigations
- Hiring and paying for highly regarded and relevant experts
- Building theories of negligence and developing evidence and arguments as support
- Responding and dealing with insurance companies involved and organizing medical bills/records
- Advising our clients how to proceed during each phase of recovery
- Preparing evidence and building a strong case to present to insurance companies, judges, and juries on your behalf
What Damages Can I Recover in a Lawsuit?
There are a variety of types of financial compensation that you might be entitled to receive from your personal injury lawsuit after negligence has been established. These damages have the purpose of compensating the injured party for economic and non-economic losses that they have sustained as a result of the injury or accident. Some of these damages include:
- Medical Expenses
- Wage Loss
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Loss of Consortium
