What is a Personal Injury Attorney?

A personal injury attorney provides legal representation to anyone who has been injured in an accident. If the accident happened due to someone else’s negligence or injury, you might be entitled to restitution under the law to cover medical expenses, loss of income or earning capacity, emotional distress, mental anguish, and more. A personal injury attorney can help if you have been involved in a vehicular accident, slipped and fell on someone’s property, been bitten by someone else’s pet, or have an elderly loved one who was neglected or abused in a nursing home. During the course of your case, your attorney will investigate claims, gather evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, handle pertinent correspondence, and represent you at trial if necessary. Working with a professional allows you to focus on recovering from your injury because you know your claim is in experienced hands.

What to Know Before Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

There are some things you should know before reaching out to a personal injury attorney.

You have a limited window of time during which to file a lawsuit. The first thing you should do after your accident is to seek medical attention to care for your injuries. Your next priority should be to reach out to our office. Statistically speaking, those who hire a personal injury attorney are awarded larger settlements. This is because experienced counsel can advise you every step of the way. Contacting a lawyer sooner rather than later will ensure that your case is handled appropriately from start to finish. Don’t sign anything or agree to any recorded conversations with third parties until you have discussed your options with a personal injury lawyer. We will advise you on how to handle the proceedings; follow our instructions and save all your documentation for your best chance at a maximum settlement.
