Personal injury law encompasses a wide variety of claims that have caused you injury. Essentially, when you have been hurt, and someone else is at fault, you have a potential personal injury lawsuit. The end result is that you are seeking financial compensation for the damages that you have suffered. Your health may not be able to be permanently restored, and you may have lost property, but the law compensates you by giving you money.
Personal injury cases touch on many different areas of the law. These cases can include:
It is not an exaggeration to say that personal injury lawsuits are all about the facts. In order to become eligible for financial compensation, you have the burden of proof to show that another person or company caused your injuries. Otherwise, you would not be able to receive anything. With that in mind, you may be wondering how you can prove your claim or case.
Theoretically, anytime someone else acts negligently or recklessly and causes injury to another person, the victim can bring a personal injury cause of action. However, the most common causes of personal injury claims and lawsuits are:
Different causes of personal injuries can be subject to personal injury laws. It is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced personal injury attorney who can guide you through the personal injury process.
The most effective step that you can take when you have been injured and think that someone else was at fault is to hire a personal injury attorney. The claims process can get difficult and often contentious. The responsible party and their insurance company will not be lining up to write a check if they can avoid it. They may even try to fight you.
Here is what your personal injury lawyer may do for your case. They can investigate the facts of your claim. When you first speak with them at your initial consultation, they may ask you quite a few questions. They may ask you to provide things such as documentary evidence or witnesses’ contact information.
Then, your personal injury lawyer can represent you in dealing with the insurance company. They may help file your claim and keep people from speaking with you who may be trying to compromise your legal interests, such as the other insurance company. The lawyer will likely present your side of the story as you seek payment for your injuries.
At some point, the insurance company may make a settlement offer. Usually, it will take negotiations to reach an agreement that fairly compensates you. Your attorney would advise you whether to accept settlement offers as they are made. If they are inadequate, your lawyer will likely reject them with a demand letter setting forth your position.
If a settlement agreement is proving difficult to reach, you and your attorney would be faced with a choice about whether to keep negotiating or file a personal injury lawsuit. While very few cases end up going to trial, lawsuits are sometimes necessary to place more pressure on an insurance company. If there is still no settlement agreement, your attorney would argue your case to the jury.
