Consulting a Lawyer Before Speaking to an Insurance Adjuster
Some insurance companies make it difficult for injured people to get the financial recovery they need. They may delay the process, downplay your injuries, or even deny your claim with the hope that you will simply give up.
You never have to accept an insurance company’s settlement if you believe it will not cover your expenses. An attorney might be able to give you a better understanding of what you may be entitled to.
An attorney on your side can stand up to the insurance company on your behalf. This gives you the time you deserve to focus on feeling better.
- Obtain evidence and testimony to show how the other party is responsible for your injuries.
- Request files and legal documents that give us information on the other party.
- Gain a better understanding of your injuries and how they may prevent you from working or returning to certain activities.
- Represent you to the insurance company or the court, if necessary.
You have rights as a victim of a personal injury that deserve protection and preservation.
We Handle Many Types of Personal Injury Cases

Many of the above personal injury cases successfully resolve cases without going to court. However, we can litigate the case if we are unable to arrive at a fair settlement with the insurance company.
We Establish Liability
There are certain elements needed to show how the defendant (the other party) is responsible for your injuries. A personal injury lawyer can consider the circumstances of your case based on these elements:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care to take reasonable measures and avoid injuring you.
- The defendant breached this duty of care in some manner.
- This breach caused the plaintiff’s injury.
- You have damages from these physical and emotional injuries.
In some personal injury cases, there is more than one liable party. We can identify all liable parties and determine their direct or indirect involvement.
What Damages You Might Recover in a Personal Injury Case
A personal injury lawyer will take a close look at your damages for both your physical and emotional injuries.
Each case is different, but here is a list of compensatory damages that might be involved in your financial recovery:
- Medical treatment (present and future)
- Lifecare expenses
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning ability due to injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were almost 170,000 deaths from unintentional injuries. If you lost a loved one in an accident caused by another’s negligence, you might be entitled to damages from a wrongful death suit. We can help you and other surviving family members through this process.
