What Do Personal Injury Attorneys Do?

What Do Personal Injury Attorneys Do?

A personal injury lawsuit is the result of a civil wrong, often referred to as a “tort.” Our personal injury lawyers attempt to right these wrongs through the civil justice system.

Our experienced attorneys understand how to effectively represent your rights to obtain money damages for your losses. Our lawyers will inform the defense attorney and the insurance company of the facts:

  • The injuries you have sustained and other related losses

  • The circumstances of the accident

  • The reasons your injuries are the fault of the defendant

Our Process

1. DOCUMENTATION

First, your assigned legal team will gather records related to your claim, including medical records, medical bills, and insurance policy information.

These documents will help your attorney understand the extent of your injury, and build your case for compensation.

2. INVESTIGATION

Your attorney and legal staff will investigate your accident in great detail to gather the necessary evidence.

They may look at dashcam footage, security camera footage, police records, and more to help build your case.

3. NEGOTIATION​

Your attorney will negotiate with the defense, outside of the courtroom, to help get you the compensation you may be entitled to.

If settlement negotiations are unsuccessful, your attorney is prepared to go to trial and present your case in the strongest possible form.
