Accidents happen. All too often, they lead to serious injuries or even death. Sometimes, no one is at fault. In other cases, accidents occur because someone acted carelessly or irresponsibly. When the negligence of a person, company, or other entity causes an accident, then the injured party has the right to sue for damages.
In other words, they have the right to file what’s called a personal injury lawsuit. The victim pursues a legal case in the hopes of obtaining compensation for their medical bills, damaged property, emotional distress, lost wages, and any other costs associated with the accident.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Personal injuries come in many forms. Common causes of injuries and wrongful deaths include:
Slip and fall accidents
Nursing home abuse
Defective or poorly labeled products
Why Do I Need an Injury Lawyer?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, a personal injury attorney can help you get compensation, particularly if someone else caused the accident by their negligence. If the accident occurred in a workplace setting, you might be able to obtain worker’s compensation even if no one was at fault and there was no negligence involved. In either case, a personal injury attorney can help you wade through the legal process and negotiate on your behalf.
What Can a Personal Injury Attorney Do that I Can’t Do?
It would be easy to recover damages if the law were simple and straightforward. It’s not. The personal injury lawsuit process is time-consuming and complex. A personal injury case involves many intricate points of law. In most cases, only an experienced accident lawyer can cut through the considerable red tape and navigate the maze-like process that is a personal injury lawsuit. In the end, an experienced attorney can:
Advise you on your legal options
Evaluate your case in light of their experience
Use their resources to investigate the accident
Negotiate with insurance companies
Negotiate with the other side’s lawyers
Represent you in court, should the need arise
Give you the best hope for a just and fair settlement
