What Is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
A personal injury lawyer provides legal representation for someone who is physically or psychologically injured due to negligence or wrongdoing. Our attorneys specialize in a variety of personal injury cases including work injuries, automobile accidents, defective products, and medical malpractice.
Often times, insurance companies will try to pay the injured party as little as is legally permissible – after all, insurance companies are businesses. But don’t settle for less than what you know you deserve. A skilled personal injury attorney will also know what a person should expect from an insurance company or another defendant when it comes to compensation and damages for property loss, medical bills, and pain and suffering. There is also a chance to receive punitive damages, which is granted when the defendant’s actions are so severe, a judge believes he or she should face financial consequences.
If your attorney isn’t able to obtain a fair settlement during the negotiations process with an insurance company, your lawsuit may be brought to civil court. If the insurance company refuses a reasonable settlement agreement, a lawsuit may be the only way to resolve the issue.
Refrain from Discussing Your Case
It’s a simple rule – don’t talk about your case. Insurance companies will scour your social media for posts and information about an incident that could make it possible for them to deny a claim or pay far less than what is fair to you.
