What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?

A personal injury attorney provides legal representation for those physically or emotionally harmed at the fault of another person. From car accidents to bed bug cases to slip and falls, having a personal injury attorney on your side could be very beneficial to helping you receiving the compensation you deserve. On top of medical bills and injuries, you may also have pain and suffering, lost employment wages, and other damages depending on the details of your case.

An experienced attorney will have the skills and in-depth knowledge to build your own unique case. Some of their tasks include:

• Gathering evidence
• Utilizing knowledge of liability laws and statutes of limitation
• Explaining laws and your rights
• Providing advice
• Effectively negotiating with insurance companies and other attorneys
• Drafting pleadings, motions, and discovery requests
• Assessing current and future damages
• Sending demand letters
• Representing clients at trial

A personal injury attorney can save you the trouble of filing a claim or having to deal with insurance company lawyers. You’ll be able to focus on the recovery process while knowing that your case is being handled by someone who has the experience and knowledge to get maximum compensation for your losses.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Personal injury attorneys typically charge based on contingency. This means that you will not have to pay anything up front. However, if you win your case (and only if you win), your lawyer will take a percentage of the recovery. This is a benefit to most people that do not wish to pay an attorney by the hour to pursue their case.
