What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do? Law Offices of Pius Joseph

Choosing the right personal injury lawyer after an accident in Southern California is one of the most important decisions you can make. An experienced attorney can guide you through the complex procedures of a personal injury case and get you through any obstacles you may encounter on the path to compensation.

The Role of a Personal Injury Attorney

A personal injury attorney is your advocate and ally for the duration of your legal claim. A lawyer performs numerous tasks as part of your representation, including:

Assessment and Initial Guidance

During an initial consultation, a personal injury lawyer can help you understand whether you have a valid legal claim, begin to identify liable parties, and explain your legal options.

Evidence and Documentation

Once you hire a personal injury attorney, they will investigate the incident that caused your injuries and gather evidence necessary to bolster your claim. They may work with accident reconstruction, engineering, medical, vocational, or financial experts for testimony regarding the nature of the incident, your injuries, and their effects on your life. An attorney will also gather documents substantiating your injuries and financial expenses to determine how much your claim is worth.

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

Most personal injury claims are resolved through settlements with the responsible party’s insurance company. Your personal injury attorney can file your claim and manage all talks with insurance adjusters so you can focus on your medical treatment and rehabilitation. Experienced personal injury attorneys know the tactics insurers use to minimize or deny injury claims. They also know how to fight back against them and preserve the value of their client’s claims.

Legal Procedures

If settlement talks fail, your attorney may advise filing a personal injury lawsuit and taking the case to trial. During litigation, your lawyer can present a compelling case to pursue a verdict in your favor.
