What Is a Personal Injury Attorney?
A personal injury attorney is a legal professional who can provide services to those who have suffered a personal injury as a result of a car accident or another person’s negligence.
However, it can also be caused by the negligence of an entity such as the local grocery store. Personal injury attorneys can help their clients claim the compensation they are entitled to. They can also help them to navigate the often complicated and confusing legal system.
What is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a claim that you can make against another person or entity. For example, you could claim against a store if you tripped and injured yourself in or outside the store.
A claim is a legal process that asks the court to prosecute the person or entity responsible for your injury. The court will take a look at your claim and ask you questions to support your case.
Every single case will have two basic points:
- Liability – Was the defendant (The individual or entity you’re taking to court) liable for your damages? (Injuries).
- Damages – If the defendant is liable what is the nature and the extent of those damages? (medical bills, pain and suffering)
If you can prove to the court that the defendant is liable you could be awarded compensation. The compensation you receive will depend on:
- When the accident occurred
- The severity of the accident
- Your injuries
- Your medical costs
- If you suffered emotionally due to the accident
- If you had to take time off work
- And other considerations
A typical personal injury case involves automobile accidents. However, each case is different and they will, therefore, be treated as an individual case.
How to Give your Personal Injury Claim the Best Chance
If you have been hurt in a personal injury accident you might not like the prospect of dealing with an attorney and an insurance company. This whole process can seem quite daunting. However, when you have the right information to hand you can make your claim much more successful.
Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer
One of the best things you can do to help your personal injury claim is to hire an attorney. William Franchi has many years of experience with personal injury claims and he can help you fight your corner.
An attorney can make a world of difference as they know how to present your case in court. They also know how to use the law to your advantage. Navigating personal injury law can be complicated and frustrating.
If you don’t have adequate or any representation you could find yourself liable for the court costs. The best thing you can do in this situation is to hire an attorney who can fight in your corner and give you the best possible chance of recovering the compensation you deserve.
If you need someone to show the court that you’re serious about your claim, William Franchi is the attorney you need.
If you have had an accident you will need to give the court as much evidence as possible. Your attorney will tell you how to preserve your evidence so you can show the court. If you do not have any evidence your attorney can show you how and where you can get the evidence you need.
For example, if you were involved in a car accident you could take photographs of your car before it is repaired. In addition to this, you could gather together photocopies of the bill the repair firm has sent you.
You might also wish to record or note down any conversations you have had with your doctor about your injuries. Try to obtain a copy of your medical records and your medical bills so the court can see them. This will go a long way to prove that you have been injured in the accident.
If you have spoken to the police about your accident ask them for a copy of the accident report. This is something that could prove useful in a court of law.
These are examples of the evidence you will need to show the court. However, your personal injury attorney will help you gather as much evidence as you can so your case has a better chance of being successful.
