The aftermath of an accident can be frightening and overwhelming, especially if you are seriously injured. You may have bills to pay, a family to support, or real concerns about your future. Your injury may be preventing you from working or may require you to change employment all together. You can often feel like a ship without a rudder in the months after an accident. The general perception of personal injury lawyers tends to be negative. However, our first and foremost goal is to help people get their lives back on track and navigate the very complicated and stressful times after an accident.
If you are involved in a personal injury accident (motor vehicle accident, slip and fall, medical malpractice, etc.), usually there will be insurance in place for the at-fault party. Insurance adjusters can often seem pleasant and helpful if you are contacted by them directly. Do not be fooled, because one of the primary goals of an insurance adjuster may be to try and undermine your claim by getting you to discuss the case and say things that are potentially harmful. Before you speak with anyone from the insurance company, make sure you contact a personal injury lawyer to inform you of your rights and help deal with the insurance company.
Personal injury lawyers are experts in dealing with injury law. We do not deal with real estate, family law, or criminal matters. We are specialist in the field of personal injury law. Pursuing litigation can be complicated and sometimes overwhelming. You need to have a lawyer in your corner you know you can trust and who is skilled to either negotiate a good settlement of your case or bring it to a successful resolution at trial.
