If you suffered an injury in Bucks County, you are not alone. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), 209 people per day are injured in Pennsylvania accidents. Vehicle collisions are only one common type of accident, however. Personal injuries could result from slip and fall accidents or workplace accidents, for example.
Thankfully, a personal injury lawyer near Bucks County can help. Before you move forward with your own injury claim, you could benefit from a discussion with a law firm regarding your options.
How Your Injury Lawyer Can Help
Your personal injury attorney will fill many roles when handling your case. From start to finish, their efforts can have a significant impact on your claim, from identifying liability in your case to negotiating with insurance companies. Given the importance of the role, it is imperative that you carefully select your attorney before moving forward with a claim. The following roles are only a small part of what an attorney could do for you.
Identifying the At-Fault Party
One of the first steps a personal injury attorney can take on your behalf is identifying the entities responsible for your injury. This could be a single person or a variety of parties. The process of determining the at-fault party can be complex in some cases. While identifying negligence in a car accident case can be straightforward, it can be much more challenging to identify the parties responsible for a defective product.
Investigating Your Claim
A thorough investigation is needed before you can pursue a personal injury claim. Your attorney can carefully review every aspect of your injury in an effort to build a claim. This process usually starts with liability. Your attorney can evaluate the facts to determine if your injury resulted from the actions of another person. A strong argument for liability is important for any personal injury claim.
An investigation can also identify the compensation you are entitled to seek. This process begins with a review of your medical records. In addition to your medical costs, your attorney could determine the compensation you may be eligible to pursue for your lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.
Negotiating a Settlement
For many people with personal injury claims, a negotiated settlement with an insurance company is often likely. In fact, most of these claims never go to trial. Obtaining a fair settlement offer is never guaranteed, but your attorney can help you put your best foot forward.
Insurance companies frequently attempt to resolve claims early on in the process for less than the case is worth. They understand many injury victims may not know how to properly evaluate their claim. Your attorney could ensure you only accept a settlement offer that is reasonable.
Filing a Lawsuit
When a personal injury claim does not settle, a lawsuit may be recommended by your lawyer. The process of filing your claim requires careful preparation. A minor technical error or a late filing could cost you the opportunity to recover compensation for your injuries.
Your attorney can prepare and file your lawsuit as well as any motions that are required during the course of your case. If your case goes to trial, your attorney can play a major role every step of the way.
