Personal injury law generally involves seeking compensation or settlement due to injury or any form of suffering (financial, mental, physical, social) caused by negligence and or carelessness of another individual or organization (work, landlord, mall, driver etc). As you hire an attorney to guide you through your claims, it is also important to note that the kind of accident, location and other factors may come into play. Common issues that may require a personal injury lawyer include; work related injuries, medical malpractice /botched operations, traffic accidents, strain injuries, falling at your place of work/mall, sickness as a result of prior work/living experiences etc.
Key points when pursuing a personal injury case is ensuring beyond any reasonable doubt that the accused bears liability in terms of their responsibility to the plaintiff and the injuries suffered are as a result of their negligence e.g. failure of a construction site to have appropriate gear and markings to protect workers/people on site.
Clearly defined harm also makes it easier for an attorney to pursue the case, this may be anything from a fracture/ wound that proves physical harm consistent with the accident. According to the law, a bigger injury should attract a larger settlement while minimizing your own liability as the plaintiff/victim in the accident should also give you a handsome settlement.
A good attorney also comes in handy when determining your personal injury settlement by quantifying the extent of injury, medical bills, lost revenue/ work wages and general pain and suffering as a result of the accident.
At the tail end of the case, the attorney also assists in following up the payments either with the accused parties or insurance of the accused while coming up with appropriate terms of compensation either dependent on an out of court settlement or a court settlement.
