Personal Injury Attorney- What Happens If I’m Involved In An Auto Accident?

A personal injury attorney is a legal professional that offers legal assistance to individuals who claim to have recently been injured, either physically or mentally, due to the negligence of another individual, institution, industry or government agency. Personal injury attorneys primarily practice within the area of personal law recognized by the American Bar Association as tort law. Tort law governs the rights of those injured to recover damages from an individual, institution, or entity that was deemed to be negligent in some way. Negligence is defined as a course of action or inaction that leads to the causing of harm or death to a person. Personal injury attorneys deal with cases that involve medical malpractice, automobile accidents, slip and fall injuries, construction accidents, wrongful death, and medical malpractice. They also can help clients that were injured due to products or services produced by companies within the realm of advertising.Learn more about us at Personal Injury Attorney

The typical process that an attorney would follow in these instances is to seek reimbursement for the damages incurred, whether or not the victim was able to recuperate monetary damages on his own. From the start, it is very important that the client and his attorney work together to establish the validity of the claim. From the insurance company’s perspective, it is always best to settle the matter through negotiation, arbitration or trial. If the case does end up going to trial, the personal injury attorney may work with the insurance company’s attorney to draft a fair, reasonable and favorable settlement claim package. To determine if a settlement is fair, the attorney needs to look at all of the facts surrounding the incident. If negotiations fail to close, the client may move forward with a lawsuit, filing the claim against the responsible party through the courts.

Once the personal injury attorney receives his or her settlement offer, he will review the case to determine if he feels that the settlement offer is sufficient enough to satisfy the client’s needs. If not, the case will move forward. In some cases, the insurance company will simply deny the claim, telling the attorney that they will not agree to any settlement offer. If this happens, the attorney has to fight to prove that the company is in violation of their settlement agreement.
