What is the Role of a Personal Injury Lawyer in a Case?

Posted on July 15th, 2021 by Zane Cagle

personal injury lawThe role of an experienced personal injury attorney is to look out for your best financial interest. Our attorneys navigate the legal process so that you may focus on your recovery and return to normal living. If you’ve recently been injured in an accident, such as a fall or a car accident, you might not know what to do next. Many might not even be aware that they might need a professional to help in this situation. However, many people who have been injured don’t get the amount of compensation they deserve from insurance companies. Financial compensation is crucial in helping injured persons recover from their injuries, making working with a personal injury lawyer necessary for many.

The Cagle Law Firm has a team of experienced personal injury lawyers prepared to help those who have been injured due to someone else’s negligence.

What Types of Cases Do Personal Injury Lawyers Handle?

It’s important to know that not all personal injury lawyers are the same. Personal injury cases can vary significantly depending on the circumstances, so not every personal injury lawyer is equipped to handle your unique case. You will want to hire a personal injury lawyer who specializes in cases like yours. At The Cagle Law Firm, we work with clients who have experienced various types of accidents and injuries. 

Here are a few types of cases that our personal injury lawyers handle. 

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Commercial vehicle accidents
  • Defective products
  • Dog bites
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Premises liability

How Do Personal Injury Lawyers Help Clients?

Lawyer reviewing paperworkIf you’ve recently suffered from a personal injury, you might be asking yourself, “what is the role of a personal injury lawyer in a case?” Of course, you might know that a lawyer will provide you with expert advice and guidance during this time, but you might not know what exactly they can do to help. 

Here’s how a personal injury lawyer can help you and your case.

Personal Injury Lawyers Gather Evidence

A personal injury lawyer knows that gathering evidence is critical in building an injury claim and documenting damages for fair compensation. Unless you frequently gather evidence for a personal injury claim, most don’t know exactly what evidence is needed or the sometimes difficult task of getting access to that evidence.

They Know How to Build Your Case

Without the right experience and knowledge, most people don’t fully understand what their damages are worth. If an injured person doesn’t know the actual cost of their damages, it’s difficult to fight for accurate compensation, and one might end up taking less than they deserve. A personal injury lawyer will closely analyze a case to determine the value of their client’s damages and work with them to help them receive it.

You Won’t Have to Deal with Insurance Companies Alone 

Most people know that insurance companies can be difficult to work with, even if they haven’t experienced it themselves. An insurance company may not always have the injured person’s best interests at heart. Even when the injured person is the insurance company’s own insured party, they generally do not just submit payment without attempts to devalue. Speaking with insurance companies can be extremely difficult, and an injured person could end up unintentionally damaging their own case by talking to the insurance company. A personal injury lawyer will take on the work of communicating with insurance companies.

Personal Injury Lawyers Will Represent You in Court

Many personal injury lawsuits settle before going to court. However, there’s always the scenario that a case will not settle prior to trial. When a case needs to go to court, you want a lawyer that has prepared the case from the beginning for litigation. Our attorneys approach every case as if it is going to need to be litigated. Whether a case needs to settle out of court or be tried in court truly depends on the client and what is best for the client. It is critical that you select an attorney who prepares every case as if it is going to be litigated.
