What is an Injury Attorney?
Personal injury attorneys represent people who have suffered injuries due to someone else’s actions. Under our laws and through our civil courts, a person who suffers damages may seek monetary compensation from the person (or corporation) that causes these injuries. We know that no one likes to call an attorney but when you or your family has been hurt and is suffering, you need legal protection and guidance in order to fairly compensate you and your family after you have been wronged. Most reputable personal injury attorneys do not charge you a fee for an initial consultation or phone conversation, and it is well worth your time to find out what options are available to you.
The Injury Compensation Process
Once you begin the process of seeking compensation, you typically will encounter an insurance company or claims department that tries to persuade you to not bring your claim or to settle for a small amount of money. This is when you need to know your rights and know how to fight back when the insurance companies try to take advantage of you. This is when you need a personal injury attorney.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do For You?
A personal injury attorney will represent you and your family and strive to make sure your rights are upheld and get you the compensation that is fair for your unique circumstances. Typically, most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis – this means that the lawyer gets paid a percentage of the money that you receive when the case is over, either through settlement, mediation, arbitration, trial or appeal, if necessary. Usually there is no retainer or upfront money that needs to be paid to the attorney. Through these types of arrangements allow you, no matter your economic status, to have access to an attorney. Many attorneys market themselves with slogans like “No fee unless you win” or “We don’t get paid until you get paid.”
Types of Injury Cases
Personal injury law most commonly involves cases in which someone is injured in a car accident. This would also include motorcycle accidents and truck accidents. It also includes slip and fall injuries at a grocery store and certain types of injuries suffered while at work.
