What Does A Personal Injury Attorney Do?

by | Jan 4, 2016 | Attorney

If you’ve been fortunate enough to have never been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may not be aware of what a Personal Injury Attorney can do. This type of attorney represents individuals who have been a victim of a negligent act and suffered injuries. They offer legal information and knowledge so the individual can make an informed decision about their case. This type of attorney will represent an injured person from the beginning to the end of a settlement for compensation from an insurance company for their injuries. They offer caring and compassionate legal guidance to their client while fighting diligently against an insurance company.

A Personal Injury Attorney should be contacted before signing any documentation from an insurance company after an accident. The type of accident an individual was injured in does not matter for settlement agreements. If the accident was a slip and fall, 18-wheeler or car accident, settlement papers should not be signed before discussing it with a knowledgeable attorney. Some injuries are permanent in nature and could need a lifetime of medical care which should be compensated by the negligent party’s insurance. It’s more important for someone who is suffering from a devastating emotional and physical accident to concentrate on their well-being and not fielding questions from a pesky insurance adjuster or claim’s representative.

An attorney can field all of the calls and answer the questions appropriately. Many individuals are on pain or anxiety medication after an accident due to the trauma. Between the pain medication and the trauma from the accident, an individual may offer information that isn’t correct which could be used against them later in the settlement process or court hearing. This is why the most important thing to do when someone’s been seriously injured is let an attorney experienced with personal injury represent the injured person.
