Frequently Asked Questions
With nearly 20 years in personal injury law, we’ve been asked a lot of questions. We’ve answered a few of the most common down below.
What Do Personal Injury Lawyers Do?
Personal injury lawyers have many functions, but their main goal is to uphold justice for each client. Depending on your individual case, a lawyer might file a claim, negotiate with insurance companies, gather evidence, and advise on further legal matters. A law firm might even partner with a non-profit organization to see a certain area of law make positive changes. Overall, the job of the personal injury lawyer is to defend your rights and pursue a settlement that is fair for your injuries.
What Types of Cases Do Personal Injury Lawyers Handle?
Depending on the law firm and region involved, personal injury lawyers handle a wide variety of cases. Personal injury law is tort law, not criminal law, which means crimes like battery and assault are not included under personal injury law, even if you were injured. Instead, personal injury law usually involves a level of negligence on the part of the defendant where you were put in harm’s way as a result.
How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?
Dealing with an injury is never easy. When you’re injured, dealing with legal matters is especially difficult. Letting a personal injury attorney deal with your case can ensure you can take the time to heal that you need.
Additionally, a personal injury lawyer provides experience and expertise that no amount of Internet searching could match. Their knowledge of the details of law (including tort reforms) and refined communication skills make it more likely that you will receive a favorable settlement. No matter what type of injury you’re facing, a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you.
Is It Worth Getting a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Hiring a personal injury lawyer may seem confusing at first. However, the process of finding and hiring the right attorney is absolutely worth it if you’ve been recently injured. First of all, most injury attorneys, including Wettermark Keith, charge clients on contingency fees bases, meaning that you won’t pay anything unless and until they win your case. Secondly, an attorney can tell you if the settlement you want is reasonable for your situation and then help you get there.
When to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
The sooner you can hire a personal injury lawyer, the better. Many types of personal injury cases have a statute of limitations. This means you should file your claim as soon as possible. Also, when you have a personal injury lawyer from the very beginning, you can avoid mistakes like negotiating with insurance companies and telling a doctor that you “feel fine.” A lawyer can handle those communication lines with and for you, making sure you get the maximum compensation available to cover your medical expenses and other punitive damages.
How to Choose a Personal Injury Lawyer
With so many personal injury lawyers out there, how do you choose just one? Start by doing some research. Ask friends and family and do a quick Internet search. After making a list of potential lawyers, request a free consultation with each one. Bring a list of questions that are important to you. Make your decision not just based on price alone, but also including their experience, case history, and personality. Also, make sure the plaintiff lawyers are members of the state bars associations.
