Attorney Frequently Asked Questions
Accidents happen, and many are just that: accidents, blameless and random. But in some cases, accidents and personal injury caused as a result of someone else’s actions (or lack thereof) may warrant legal action by the injured party.
Once you are represented by an injury lawyer, the insurance adjuster can no longer call you. You are then free to focus on your own life and concentrate on recovering from your injuries without the stress of worrying about how to handle a claim on your own.
The other party’s insurance adjuster and insurance defense attorney will work hard to deny your claims or minimize your damages. An experienced personal injury attorney knows how to fight back to overcome the Defendant’s legal defenses against your claims.
In order to win your case you have to prove liability – or prove that the other party was at fault. We work diligently to investigate to get proof that someone else’s negligence caused your injuries.
If you don’t have health insurance or can’t afford co-pays or other medical treatment costs, we can help you communicate with your medical providers about delaying payment until you get money for your injuries.
In order to receive the money you deserve for your injuries, you must be able to prove the extent of your injuries, document your lost wages, and demonstrate how your injuries affected your life. We collect the evidence and present your claim in a way that can get you the most money for your claims.
A successful personal injury attorney knows where to look for additional sources of money to compensate you for your injuries, besides just the other party’s insurance company.
Your own health insurance company, medical providers and hospitals that treated you for your injuries from the accident can make claims to try to take part of your settlement. We will negotiate subrogation claims and liens on your behalf to help you get the most compensation for your recovery.
