With the help of your lawyer, you may reach a fair settlement with the responsible parties. However, your lawyer cannot settle the case without your consent. They can advise you on what fair compensation would look like in your case and take it to trial if an insurer refuses to agree to a fair award.
If you or someone you love was involved in an accident, you might be able to pursue compensation for your resulting losses. These could include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Your Lawyer Will Negotiate for a Fair Settlement
A lawyer from our firm can look out for your interests by negotiating a fair settlement on your behalf. If negotiation fails, they will bring your case to trial to advocate for your rights before a judge or jury.
Your Lawyer Will Search for Evidence
First, a lawyer with our firm can investigate your accident to find evidence of negligence. There are many circumstances in which someone else’s negligence can leave them responsible for your injuries. Some types of personal injury cases include:
- Car accidents: Negligent drivers who are drunk, drug-impaired, drowsy, distracted, or speeding may be held liable for the accident and injuries they cause.
- Falls: Slip and fall accidents may result from the negligence of the property owner.
- Medical malpractice: If your healthcare provider’s negligence caused your injuries or worsened your condition, you may have a case for medical malpractice.
The kinds of evidence we can uncover in your case will depend on the type of accident that caused your injuries. Typically, we will investigate to find video footage, photographs, witnesses, official documents, and records that can prove your case.
Your Lawyer Will Prove Your Case
Once we have collected evidence, we will build your case. To successfully recover compensation for you after an accident, we will need to prove that the following elements apply to your case:
- Duty of care: First, we will prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care. This means that you had a right to be kept reasonably safe at the time of your accident.
- Negligence: Next, we will prove that the defendant failed to meet this duty of care because they were negligent.
- Causation: Then, we will prove that this negligence is what caused your accident.
- Damages: Finally, we will prove that this accident caused your injuries and losses. These are called damages.
Your lawyer will present your case to the insurance companies
Once your lawyer has assembled the strongest possible case for you, they will negotiate with the insurance company to reach a settlement. Our team can assess any settlement offer to determine if it would leave you footing the bill for your injuries down the road.
Our firm cares about what is best for you, and we will not settle for less than what you deserve. If your lawyer is unable to negotiate a fair settlement, then they can take your case to trial.
