How Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help My Case?

Personal injuries can result in physical pain, financial struggles, and emotional anguish. When you’ve suffered injuries due to another party’s wrongdoing or negligence, seeking justice and fair settlement is a viable option. Here are some ways a personal injury attorney at Longo Biggs Injury Law, LLC can help your case:

Determining Liability

A personal injury attorney investigates your case to determine who is responsible for the incident or accident that resulted in your injuries. They can assess police reports, video footage, witness statements, and photographs to establish liability. By determining liability, they can understand the strength of your case and the legal route to pursue. At Longo Biggs Injury Law, we can help determine liability in personal injury cases such as:

  • Birth injury
  • Slip and fall
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Car accident
  • Truck accident
  • Wrongful death
  • Medical malpractice
  • Boat accident
  • Chemical exposure
  • Product liability
  • Worker’s compensation

Our attorneys can help establish whether the defendant owed you the duty of care and breached it by acting negligently or carelessly. We can also prove whether you suffered actual damages due to the defendant’s breach of duty. These damages can include medical expenses and lost wages. They can also include pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and property damage.

Negotiating Compensation

Some personal injury cases are settled out of court through negotiations. An attorney from Longo Biggs Injury Law can hold talks with the at-fault party and insurance company on your behalf. Our attorneys have the negotiation skills and experience to advocate for your rights and maximize your settlement.

We collect and organize all relevant evidence to build a solid case supporting your fair compensation claim. Throughout the negotiation process, the opposing party presents settlement offers. Our attorneys review and evaluate these offers, factoring in the extent of your damages and the strength of your case. Having a personal injury lawyer on your side can help you avoid the risk of insurance adjusters undervaluing your claim.

Representing You in Court

If the settlement negotiations fail, your attorney should be prepared to take your case to court. Before trial, your attorney reviews the evidence and consults with expert witnesses like medical professionals, accident reconstruction specialists, economists, or vocational experts to build a strong case. Your attorney can handle the paperwork involved with a court case. This includes filing the initial complaint.

During the trial, the attorney presents your case before a judge and jury. They also cross-examine witnesses, introduce evidence, and argue on your behalf. A personal injury lawyer should have the courtroom experience and expertise to submit your personal injury case and advocate for a just settlement. They should also effectively voice the impact of your injuries and the resulting damages. This can influence the case’s outcome. Hiring an attorney for your personal injury case can be especially helpful when insurance companies and at-fault parties have legal teams present during the trial.
