What is the role of a personal injury lawyer in an injury lawsuit?

When you work with a professional injury attorney, you can expect comprehensive legal representation throughout your case. Your lawyer should:

  • Gather evidence to support your claim
  • Build a strong case based on the evidence collected
  • Speak to the insurance companies and their legal teams for you
  • File documents and take the necessary steps to progress your claim

Injury victims can claim compensation for all the ways they’ve suffered after an accident, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical care
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation costs
  • Property damage
  • Lost incomes
  • Loss of future earnings capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

We can help you get monetary payment for your losses if you were injured in an accident. You shouldn’t have to pay for somebody else’s mistake. Contact our office now to see what your injury lawsuit may be worth and how we can help you claim the full value for all your damages.

Why is having a personal injury lawyer important?

While we expect insurance companies to uphold their end of the contract after an accident, this is not always the case. Insurance adjusters quickly minimize losses and often pressure accident victims to accept less than their claim is worth. However, with legal representation on your side, you can fight back.

A personal injury attorney can help you build a strong case that includes the total value of all your damages to ensure you get fair compensation. Without a lawyer, you may not even know what damages you can claim or what your rights are.

According to a Martindale-Nolo research study on personal injury claims, clients with legal representation were much more likely to secure higher average settlements than those who did not retain a lawyer. Also, negotiated settlements were about $30,000 more than those who accepted the first offer from the insurance company.

Overall, working with a personal injury attorney can help get more for your claim through aggressive negotiations and a deeper understanding of the process.

How can I get my personal injury claim compensation?

Accident victims must be proactive in order to get fair compensation for their damages. Because there is a limited time to bring a legal claim after an accident, you should take action as soon as possible and work with an experienced attorney to help you secure your settlement.

With several locations throughout Colorado, Bachus & Schanker can help injury victims throughout the state get justice after an accident. Contact us now to schedule your FREE, confidential consultation with our team today!
