What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?
A personal injury lawyer can assist you in settling an accident case with an insurance company. If you or a loved one is facing accident-related expenses and significant medical bills and hiring legal counsel for a personal injury accident is the best move.
Personal injury lawyers are highly trained to evaluate injuries and they understand the intricate issues and circumstances of every case. A personal injury attorney at MyPhillyLawyer will take a case to trial if attempts to settle with the insurance company are unsuccessful.
Personal injury attorneys at MyPhillyLawyer also ensure your claim is filed on time before any statute of limitations runs out and determines which parties can be sued in a case with more than one possible defendant. Survivors cannot do this.
While survivors may attempt to negotiate with an insurance company on their own, they are typically at a disadvantage because they do not have legal counsel. The insurance company attempts to offer a claimant a very low offer or even try to dismiss it using various excuses, such as the accident was partially the plaintiff’s fault or the injuries were pre-existing, so the injured survivor is not entitled to compensation.
What Are Your Injuries Worth?
Most injured survivors in injury accidents do not know what their injuries are worth. Although a personal injury calculator can offer an approximation of the worth of an injury, it is not accurate in estimating the final value of a settlement.
This is because there are several moving parts to ultimately determining a final settlement. Those factors include how serious the injuries are, how they impact the plaintiff’s life, whether their medical condition will affect them permanently, or if they could recover, whether surgery is involved, or if a traumatic brain injury is debilitating.
An injured plaintiff can only guess what their injuries could be worth, and should they try to file a personal injury claim on their own, they stand to lose thousands of dollars by not knowing the value of their injuries and not knowing the legal process or procedures – a fact that could even result in their case being thrown out in court or dismissed by an insurance company.
MyPhillyLawyer personal injury attorneys are highly trained and have extensive litigation and negotiation experience. We know what your claim could or should be, and that is what we fight for.
Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
If a plaintiff attempts to represent themselves, they do not have the knowledge to know which documents to file, how to fill out the forms properly, how to file them or where to file them, how to deal with insurance companies effectively, or how to use the law in their favor.
Insurance companies know that plaintiffs trying to represent themselves can be beaten easily by using legal technicalities that the plaintiff does not know about or understand. No lawyer? That usually results in a very low or no settlement. MyPhillyLawyer knows how to deal with insurance companies and obtain a favorable outcome.
Understanding how insurance works in the aftermath of an accident is something a personal injury attorney is intimately familiar with and knows that other damages can be claimed. Plaintiffs trying to handle their claims do not comprehend whose insurance pays for what in any car accident, which can be even more complex if both parties to a crash or other type of accident are involved.
Pennsylvania has choice no-fault insurance, which means, should you be involved in a vehicle accident, and have full tort insurance; you are eligible for compensation for suffering and pain. If you have limited tort coverage, you are not eligible for pain and suffering.
Showing Liability in a Personal Injury Case
The biggest issue in a personal injury accident is the question of liability. A personal injury attorney from MyPhillyLawyer can show that a claim is based on provable liability on the part of a negligent person or persons in a case. Proving liability is vitally important because to obtain a payout from an insurance company or another at-fault individual, fault/liability must be established.
In personal injury cases, the plaintiff’s attorney strives to prove the claimant was owed a duty of care by a negligent defendant; that the defendant was in breach of the duty owed to the plaintiff; and can show that injuries sustained by a survivor were the direct result of the defendant breaching their duty of care. A personal injury attorney also shows that the plaintiff/survivor’s injuries directly resulted from the defendant’s negligence.
