What is a personal injury?
Any event that causes pain or injury to a person's body, mind and/or emotions is considered a personal injury. Severe injuries that result in a fatality, are also considered a personal injury, and are referred to as a wrongful death. If a person believes they have been injured due to another's negligence they can seek the legal services of a personal injury attorney to represent them in the legal process of filing a claim and getting fair compensation.
What Does A Personal Injury Lawyer Handle?
A personal injury attorney may handle a wide range of case types or may specialize in only automobile accidents. Law firms with multiple attorneys are often able to match clients with a lawyer who has extensive experience in a specific type of case such as:
Nursing home abuse. Care facilities can be sued if a pattern of abuse or neglect becomes evident.
Wrongful death. If a relative's death was caused by negligence, a claim can be filed for burial and funeral costs, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
Premises liability. Injuries suffered while on someone else's property due to an unsafe condition that could have been prevented, i.e., broken furniture, unmarked construction areas, or slippery floors etc. are cases handled by a personal injury lawyer.
Medical malpractice. Personal injury from a health care provider's mistake or negligence that caused harm is considered medical malpractice and may be the result of delayed treatment, misdiagnosis, wrong medication or dosage, broken equipment, early release, or failure to refer to an appropriate specialist.
Dog bites. If a dog owner fails to restrain an animal and the negligence results in a personal injury, the victim can receive compensation for injuries and medical bills. Personal injury lawyers engage in a thorough investigation to get to the facts about liability in dog bite personal injury cases.
Is It Worth Getting A Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal injury lawyers are experienced at assessing claims and can inform accident victims and their families upfront whether their case is worth pursuing, saving the time and expense of preparing for litigation.
If a personal injury case is deemed worthy of litigation, a lawyer can cut through the red tape of legal procedures, confusing medical terms, and the mountains of paperwork that are often a part of personal injury claims, giving the victims and their families the time they need to recover and heal from the accident.
Insurance companies will often try to settle an injury case quickly by offering far less than the injured party deserves. Accident victims endure legal issues, pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and sometimes the inability to work for an extended length of time. Having a personal injury attorney who is experienced with the tactics of insurance companies can be extremely beneficial in a satisfactory outcome for the victim.
What Percentage Does A Personal Injury Attorney Get?
Personal Injury lawyers most often work on a contingency basis, meaning that if the victim does not win the case, they do not pay attorney fees. The fee percentage varies from case to case and should be openly discussed and agreed to before a particular attorney or firm is hired. Most law firms offer a free initial consultation where the merits of the case can be discussed, and terms explained and agreed upon.
