Personal Injury Attorney - Better Defense

By Edited Oct 27, 2013 0 2

Hiring a personal injury attorney of law may seem a kind of a luxury for outsiders. However, personal injury claims and trials can be very tricky, causing plaintiffs to lose the case. Many times, personal injury is a fight between the weak and the powerful, because it's one human against a huge corporation, which has all the money needed to hire the best personal injury lawyers for themselves to prove that the victim is wrong and her claim is not based on real facts.

Another chapter where the personal injury attorney can help a great deal is the compensation for an injury claim. While the court may decide the plaintiff is right and entitled to claim compensations, the value of these settlements could be much lower than what the victim could get if she hired a lawyer for building and sustaining her defense case.

Many people may not be aware of this, but filing a personal injury claim can be done only within a specific period of time after the accident or the injury happened. It's not free, because the state has the interest to keep away those persons who have made a passion from complaining and bringing people to lawsuits even without reason. Going through such a trial is not the best experience that could ever happen to somebody, therefore it's possible that parties negotiate a settlement in order to avoid going to court. The lawyer is helpful, because he already knows the tricks of the trade, the negotiation strings and push buttons, so he might be able to get you a much better deal than if you negotiated it by yourself.

There are many types of personal injuries:

  • Work related injuries, or work accidents, which can be a consequence of defective or missing protection equipment.
  • Car accident injuries: when the other driver is guilty of the collision between your vehicles, you could file a personal injury claim and ask for compensations.
  • Medical malpraxis personal injury: attorneys can fight for you in court in case you have been the victim of a medical error with consequences for your health and for your quality of life.
  • Improper products injury: defective products, toys which are not suitable for children, not properly labeled, expired products can cause personal damage, therefore any consumer who's been a victim of defective or recalled goods can hire a personal injury attorney and file in the compensation claim.
Whether your case ends up with a lump sum settlement, a structured settlement or with a court trial, hiring the best personal injury attorney you can afford could be in your financial benefit at the end of the day, because the extra money you'd be able to obtain as compensationcould be bigger than what you agreed to pay the lawyer.

Lots of attorneys to this and their compensation is based on what the recipient receives. They won't take a case, they don't have a reasonable expectation of winning.

Talk with your chosen lawyer and don't hesitate to ask questions about his fees. There are some who offer to work on contingency basis especially if he sees a strong potential in your case. Also, avail of free consultations that some law firms offer to determine whether your claim is eligible or not.
