5 Reasons You Want a PI Attorney on Your Side

ELI5: Negligence

If you’ve been injured and need to file a personal injury claim, you may be wondering if it’s worth it to retain a personal injury attorney to represent you with your claim. Knowing what your personal injury attorney will do for you can help make that decision easier. Here are five things you can expect from your personal injury attorney:


5 Reasons You Want a PI Attorney on Your Side

Your personal injury attorney will gather evidence to help your claim. The “evidence” is anything that will help prove your claim for compensation. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, your attorney may reach out to your doctor for medical records. She’ll want to get a copy of the police report that was filed, pictures of vehicle damage, or accident location. Depending on your situation, your attorney may enlist the expertise of someone familiar with your injury. Your attorney will use the evidence to build a stronger claim and help you win a better settlement.

Write a Demand

After gathering evidence, your attorney will write a letter to the insurance company of the person responsible for your injuries. This letter will include a demand for compensation using the evidence gathered and compiled by your attorney. She’ll make the case that you’re entitled to a certain amount of compensation because of the damages and injuries you’ve experienced.

You were probably thrown into the world of personal injury law with little or no idea of what to expect, but your attorney isn’t just there to make your case. She also has the experience and training to answer your questions and give you peace of mind while you wade through the challenges of a personal injury claim. She’ll advise you of how much you can expect from your case, and what a fair settlement would be.

Negotiate for Settlement

Your attorney may go back and forth with the insurance company as they negotiate for the settlement you’re entitled to. Your attorney will let you know how much you can expect, and advise you when to agree to a settlement. Once the settlement is finalized, your attorney will take care of satisfying the medical bills and other payments that you’ve collected because of your injury.

In the rare scenario that your personal injury claim goes to court, you’ll want your attorney there at your side. The idea of a trial might be sound scary, especially after an injury that’s caused so much pain already, but your attorney will bring previous experience and knowledge to fight for you.
