What to Expect from Your Lawyer During a Personal Injury Case

Posted on in Personal Injury

Campbell County personal injury attorney

Whether you have been in a vehicle collision, truck accident, motorcycle crash, or any other type of accident and sustained a personal injury as a result, you are probably going to want to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages in court, especially if the costs of medical bills and your own trauma are preventing you from moving forward with your life. However, before you proceed with hiring a personal injury attorney, you should know what to expect from them to ensure they are working in your best interests.   

What to Expect from Your Personal Injury Attorney 

From analyzing your case to determine compensation to filing paperwork and arguing your case in order to expedite its settlement, your personal injury attorney can do many important things for you to make sure everything goes smoothly and you obtain the best possible outcome. Here are a few examples of how your personal injury lawyer can assist you:

  • Willingness to assist from the start—Not all personal injury lawyers offer free consultations, but those who do recognize that their knowledge and experience are a great benefit to their prospective clients regardless of whether they are taking on the case. To be willing to help from the start without charging a fee is priceless.

  • Understanding a fair compensation amount—Your personal injury attorney should be able to review and evaluate the circumstances surrounding your personal injury case and determine a ballpark figure for how much you might be able to settle for at the start. When necessary, he or she will bring in subject matter experts to further attest to the amount of money he or she has assessed you need and deserve.

  • Drafting pleadings, discovery requests, legal filings, and other motions—These documents make up the brunt of the legal work that your personal injury attorney will do for you. Your attorney and any assistants know how to write formal documentation to present to the court, dealing with the administrative tasks necessary to make sure the case is processed quickly and correctly.

  • Being your advocate, always—Your personal injury lawyer and legal team should always be on your side and fight for you. This includes being compassionate and receptive to your pain and suffering, especially if the circumstances surrounding your accident are complex.

  • Interviewing witnesses—This includes deposing witnesses as well as collecting other such testimony to support your case. Your lawyer should be well-versed in interrogation and know how to get the answers that are essential from eyewitnesses.

  • Going above and beyond—Last but not least, and possibly most importantly, your personal injury lawyer should go above and beyond your expectations to maximize your settlement for that case. For example, Attorney William F. Evans exceeded his client’s expectations by personally tracking down an eyewitness of an accident who moved across the country for a recent Knox County personal injury case. Lawyers who truly want the best outcome for their clients will go above and beyond what is expected of them.
