Innocent individuals become victims of personal injuries on a daily basis. Many of them understand that the law makes it possible to be compensated for damages resulting from negligence, but does one require an injury lawyer to file an injury lawsuit or claim?
Victims of personal injuries do not need to hire a lawyer to be able to file any kind of legal claim.
In fact, if you yourself suffered an injury yesterday, you can head to the courthouse tomorrow and present your official claim. But wait - which courthouse do you have to go to? Is it the closest one to your home residence?
What about the documents - specifically which papers have to be filled out and submitted? Who do I file an injury lawsuit against, anyway? Is it the property owner in a slip and fall, the other driver in an auto accident, or my own doctor if it is a medical malpractice case? What about the insurance companies - when do they get involved?
These are only a few of the most basic questions that you must have the answers to before filing a claim. Once the process is underway, countless other steps have to be followed error-free and in a timely fashion, or else the claim could fall apart over a missed deadline, a missing document, or even typographical error.
All of the questions presented above can be promptly answered and resolved by an experienced attorney. They are very familiar with the legal process, to the extent that they can foresee the direction in which a case is going and begin preparing in advance.
Aside from taking care of the copious amounts of paperwork, the legal team representing you will also be responsible for handling all communications. As alluded to earlier, your claim will likely be paid out by an insurance company if successful. Therefore, your lawyer will be in constant contact with these companies, arguing back and forth on the facts of the case and how they bolster or weaken your case.
Most importantly, having the lawyer by your side establishes your intent to see the case all the way to court if need be. Insurance companies count on victims giving up the fight and dropping their claims or settling for a lower amount than they deserve. Your legal defendant should have the resources necessary to keep the fight going as long as it is necessary to win the case.
Finally, the legal professional who represents you will be able to use their experience to estimate how much your case is worth. They can then use this knowledge in settlement negotiations. If it's possible to obtain more compensation for yourself and your loved ones due to the nature of your injuries, then they will be able to fight tooth and nail for every cent you deserve.
