What Is A Personal Injury Lawyer?

We Are Often Asked What Personal Injury Lawyers Do?

If you have been injured, you may be wondering why you should hire a personal injury lawyer? People know that we go to court and fight for our clients, but few realize that the majority of our work occurs outside the courtroom.

Personal injury lawyers help you get better by accessing the treatments you need and the resources that can promote a faster recovery.

To do so, we need to understand the cause, nature, and extent of the injury as well as how the injury affects your employment and activities of daily life.

We then help identify the type of treatment that you need to get better by consulting our wide network of health care professionals.

Your job is to focus on healing. Our job is to ensure you are compensated to the fullest extent possible.

We sift through scores of medical, employment, and financial records to figure out how much the injury has cost you. We then apply the law to obtain for you the compensation you deserve.

The Majority Of The Preparation For A Personal Injury Case Happens Outside Of Court.

A good personal injury lawyer abides by the principle of: court if necessary but not necessarily court.

Many personal injury lawyers are expert negotiators. We would rather settle your case on the phone or in mediation than in court because this can save you money and result in a better recovery for you.

If you are not happy with a settlement offer, we will continue to work on it until the judgment is fair. This is what personal injury lawyers do.
