How Can A Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me
A personal injury lawyer represents injured accident victims in claims against insurance companies and in lawsuit against the responsible individual or company. They will order your medical records and bills, the police report, if any and interview eye-witnesses. A personal injury lawyer will send a settlement package along with a settlement deman to the insurance company that will contain all documents needed to support your personal injury claim. These documents include medical records and bills, wage loss information, photographs, and videos of the accident scene or your injuries. The lawyer will then negotiate with the insurance company to obtain for you a fair settlement.
The lawyer can also help in having your medical bills reduced and may negotiate with your health insurance to lower the amount of money you may have to reimburse them if the health insurance company paid of your medical bills. The health insurance company’s right to be reimburse out of any settlement with the responsible party’s insurance company is called the “right of subrogation”.
If the insurance company fails to offer you a reasonable settlement, the lawyer will then file a lawsuit and prepare you case for trial. This means taking the depositions (sworn statements) of the defendant, the investigating police officer, if any, the treating physician and any eye-witnesses to the accident. In complex personal injury lawsuit you lawyer may also retain expert witnesses to prove liability or negligence on the part of the defendant or to prove your loss of earning capacity in the past as well as the future.
If you or your loved one will require a large amount of future medical care your lawyer may hire a vocational rehabilitation expert to prove the costs of that future medical care. This expert witness is usually used in catastrophic injury claims like traumatic brain injury, paraplegia and quadriplegia.
