Personal injury attorneys provide legal representation to people who have been injured in accidents due to another person’s negligence. They help injured victims recover financial compensation from at-fault parties.
Personal injury attorneys generally do the following things:
They help clients understand what their legal rights are and advise them on how to proceed with their personal injury claim.
They handle all legal paperwork and ensure that all the documents are properly completed and filed within the deadline set by the courts.
They gather evidence to support the plaintiff’s claim, such as police or incident reports, medical reports and witness statements. They can also retain evidence for the case such as property damage, camera footage or other evidence.
They handle all communications with the insurance companies and prevent victims from doing anything that may jeopardize their claim, such as giving recorded statements.
They negotiate settlements with insurance companies on behalf of the plaintiff. They review policy details and determine the maximum level of compensation available to the plaintiff based on the specific circumstances of each case.
They prepare complaints against the defendants. Complaints set out the legal arguments for putting the responsibility for the accident on the other party.
If cases go to trial, personal injury lawyers represent clients in court. They are familiar with court customs and procedures. They prepare opening and closing statements, examine and cross-examine witnesses, and convince juries that plaintiffs are entitled to compensation.
