What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

As your personal injury attorney, a member of our team will walk you through every step of your personal injury case. First, we will begin by talking to you about your accident and your goals for your claim.

Below are the steps we will take as your personal injury law firm:

Gather Evidence

Photos, videos, witness testimonies, and police reports are all valuable pieces of evidence that can bolster your claim. Our team will spend time tracking down witnesses and getting photos of the accident scene to prove the other party’s negligent behavior. Evidence may also include medical records, employment documents, property damage reports, or employment reports.

Negotiate with Insurance Companies

In some personal injury cases, the best avenue for payment is filing a claim with an insurance company. However, insurance agents are often hesitant to give victims the payment they deserve. Our personal injury lawyers will talk to the insurance company directly on your behalf to negotiate a fair settlement that is right for you.

Send Demand Letters

If an insurance company is unwilling to negotiate with our team, we can send them a demand letter after investigating your claim. In the demand letter, we will state the facts of the accident and demand a certain amount of money for the damages caused.

Prepare for Court

If an insurance claim is not the right avenue for you, our team will move on to preparing your case for court. We will prepare a complaint against the negligent parties, defining why the defendant is responsible for the accident and how much they owe you in damages.

Represent You at Trial

Our personal injury lawyers have years of experience representing clients in court. If your case goes before a judge, we will represent you and present evidence to prove the defendant’s negligence. We are familiar with personal injury law, and we are confident we can get you the payment you deserve.

What Types of Cases Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Handle?

As a personal injury law firm, any accident involving negligence from another party is a case we can handle. Our Orlando personal injury lawyers are well-versed in personal injury law, and we are confident that our law firm can assist you.

Some of the cases our team has experience with include:

  •  Car accidents. Auto accidents have the potential to cause catastrophic injuries and even death.
  •  Truck accidents. Commercial vehicles often cause severe injuries and expensive property damage repairs.
  •  Bicycle accidents. Bike riders on the road can be seriously injured, even when wearing appropriate safety gear.
  •  Motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle riders are very likely to get into accidents with larger cars and trucks.
  •  Slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents are common premises liability cases that can lead to large payouts.
  • Pedestrian accidents. Pedestrians on the road can be seriously injured by motor vehicles.
  •  Rideshare accidents. Uber and Lyft accidents are complex, and claims can depend on your ride status and insurance company.
  •  Catastrophic injuries. Injured victims may experience life-long symptoms, leading to expensive medical bills.

What Kind of Damages Can You Claim in a Personal Injury Case?

In general, you can recover damages for any expenses you accrued as a direct result of the accident. You must prove that the accident caused these expenses, and you must also prove that the accident happened as the result of negligence from another party.

Depending on your personal injury case, you may be able to seek damages for the following:

  •  Medical bills, both present and future
  •  Property damage repairs
  •  Lost wages
  •  Emotional distress
  •  Pain and suffering

If your loved one was killed in an accident, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death claims provide compensation to the surviving family members of a deceased individual. Your loved one’s wrongful death claim can help pay for funeral expenses, unpaid bills, medical expenses, and more. To learn more about wrongful death cases and how they can help your family, contact our law firm today.

How Can You Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Case?

Whether you are pursuing a lawsuit in court or an insurance claim, proving negligence is essential. Negligence is any intentional or unintentional harmful act that causes danger to others. Our team of personal injury lawyers will help you prove negligence using photos, videos, witness statements, and police reports.

Negligence is often proven by showing how a party violated their “duty of care.” For instance, all drivers on the road have a duty to operate their vehicles safely. If a driver was operating their vehicle under the influence and caused an auto accident, they have violated their duty of care. By proving this violation, our team can help you recover financial compensation.

What Can a Personal Injury Attorney Do for Me?

Being injured in an accident can leave you with medical bills, property damage repairs, and lost wages from taking time off work. If you or your family members are in debt because of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve to seek compensation. A personal injury attorney on our team can help you pursue a personal injury case from start to finish, exploring all your legal options until you get the payment you deserve.
