What is a Lawyer?

Lawyers have extensive legal training and knowledge. It is their responsibility to understand your legal rights. Because it is impossible to know every aspect of every category of law, many lawyers will specialize in specific areas of the law.

The area of law known as “torts” encompasses the work of lawyers who represent clients in personal injury cases, such as those involving automobile collisions, slip and fall incidents, and dog bites. A significant number of lawyers choose to further specialize their practices by focusing exclusively on either initiating or defending legal cases.

Why Should I Hire a Lawyer to Represent Me in a Case Involving a Personal Injury?

Legally speaking, you can file a lawsuit on your own without the assistance of a lawyer. However, having a personal injury lawyer on your side can add a significant amount of value to the case you’re trying to win. Injury lawyers handle a wide variety of cases that are extremely similar to yours on a daily basis. They are able to put their expertise and experience to work for you by doing the following:

  • Evaluating your situation to determine the value of your claim in comparison to similar cases in your area and the likelihood that you will win your case at trial.
  • Negotiating with an insurance company, your employer, or anyone else involved in your case.
  • Investigating the accident. 
  • Gathering and analyzing medical records. 
  • Knowing what to prove and how to prove it in order to win your case.
  • Presenting your case in front of a judge, jury, or insurance adjuster.

Although many people are hesitant to hire a lawyer because they believe they will be too expensive, our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. That means you won’t have to pay your lawyer anything if you don’t win your case. You get a lot of value for no money upfront. Furthermore, having an experienced lawyer on your side increases your chances of winning your case or receiving a higher settlement amount.

Which Lawyer Do I Choose?

No one lawyer has all the knowledge. Many lawyers concentrate their practice to specific legal fields, allowing them to gain a deep understanding of those areas. For this reason, you wouldn’t want the same lawyer to help you with your personal injury case and also draft your will. They most likely lack the expertise, knowledge, and experience necessary to make a strong case after an accident. That person is still a competent lawyer despite this! It simply means that you must employ one for your will and another lawyer for your injury case.
