WHAT DO ACCIDENT CLAIM LAWYERS DO?
Have you recently been involved in an accident? If so, you may feel that your life has been completely turned upside down. You may find yourself injured, unable to work, and struggling to keep up with mounting medical bills, while still providing for yourself and those you love.
If you are feeling this way, you’ve arrived at the right place. The compassionate, experienced team at Morgan and Morgan is here to help. We’re here For the People—and we’re here for you.
You may be asking yourself, what exactly do accident claim lawyers do—and why do I need one? It’s a good question. A few of the most important reasons you need a lawyer are:
- Insurance companies are out to protect their own interests. They are usually going to try to pay you as little as possible, so they can keep more money in their own pockets.
- A good team of attorneys will know the best strategies to pursue to increase your chances of receiving the maximum amount of compensation you deserve as a result of your accident.
- You deserve to focus on your recovery—not on stress and anxiety surrounding mounting medical bills and legal matters.
A knowledgeable and experienced team of attorneys, like the team at Morgan and Morgan, can fight for you. While every claim will be slightly different depending upon your circumstances, the general process includes:
- Seeking medical treatment: This is the first and most important step. Taking care of your immediate medical needs should come before any other concerns.
- Consulting and hiring an attorney: You’ll want to be certain that you find and retain an attorney who knows the best legal strategies to pursue on your behalf—and who will fight for you each step of the way. At Morgan and Morgan, we are those attorneys.
- Investigating your claim and reviewing records: Your attorney will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts surrounding your claim, and review your medical records for all important information.
- Negotiating and attempting to reach a settlement: Often, before officially filing a lawsuit, your attorney may attempt to negotiate a settlement on your behalf. If this is successful, you may be able to avoid a lawsuit entirely.
- Filing a lawsuit: If initial negotiations are unsuccessful, your attorney will go forward with officially filing your lawsuit.
- Attempting mediation and negotiation: In this phase of the claim, attorneys will again attempt to negotiate a settlement and resolve the case before undergoing a full trial.
- Trial: Sometimes, however, a fair settlement simply isn't possible and a trial is the best way to obtain the compensation you deserve.
If you are successful in your accident claim, you may be entitled to a variety of damages, including:
- Reimbursement of lost wages—both past and anticipated future;
- Compensation for past, current, and anticipated future medical expenses;
- Compensation for damage to your property;
- Damages for pain and suffering;
- And more, depending upon your circumstances.
