What Does a Personal Injuries Attorney Do?

You could be entitled to damages if you suffered an injury due to another’s negligent or deliberate conduct. A personal injuries attorney at Morgan & Morgan can help you navigate the legal process to recover compensation for your injury’s physical, emotional, and financial consequences.

Advocate for Your Rights

A lawyer can protect your rights and ensure you receive the compensation you need to move forward. They can help gather evidence, interview witnesses, and build a strong case. Your attorney can also communicate with insurance companies, medical professionals, and other parties involved in the case to represent your interests.

Guide You Through the Legal Process

A personal injuries attorney can guide you through the legal process from start to finish, including:

  • Filing a claim or lawsuit
  • Negotiating with insurance companies
  • Representing you at trial

They can explain complex legal procedures, answer your questions, and help you identify your next best steps.

Assess Your Damages

An experienced personal injuries attorney at Morgan & Morgan can identify the impact of your injury on your health, career, and home life. They can calculate your damages accordingly, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Car damage
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of life enjoyment

Your attorney can also help estimate future costs, such as ongoing medical treatment or long-term disability. Knowing the full impact of an injury is essential for pursuing fair compensation and can ensure you don’t leave money on the table in negotiations.

Represent Your Case Powerfully in Court

If an adequate settlement agreement with the insurance company or at-fault party is impossible, a personal injuries attorney can represent you in court and take your case to trial. They can present evidence, call witnesses, and argue your case before a judge and jury. Having a skilled and tenacious attorney on your side can be crucial for success at trial.

Handle Your Claim on a No-Win-No-Fee Basis

Most personal injuries attorneys work with a contingency agreement, meaning you only pay attorney’s fees if you win and receive compensation. However, since some lawyers charge hourly fees and retainers, discuss your law firm’s fee structure before signing an agreement. Morgan & Morgan never charges clients anything upfront. We only get paid if and when you receive compensation.

Provide Moral Support

Morgan & Morgan’s personal injuries attorneys know what you are going through. We see the emotional toll of personal injuries on victims and families every day. Our compassionate lawyers can offer you a shoulder to lean on, listen to your concerns, and provide reassurance throughout the legal process.

You Could Have a Personal Injury Case

Not all accidents qualify for compensation. However, you could have a personal injury claim if you have suffered harm and financial loss due to someone else’s negligence or intentional wrongdoing. Here are some questions that help determine whether you have a legal claim:

  • Did your accident happen relatively recently?
  • Did you suffer an injury?
  • Did you incur damages, such as healthcare costs, loss of income, or others?
  • Is another responsible for the accident?

If all the above apply, you could have a personal injury claim. However, the best way to determine whether you have a case is to speak to a personal injuries attorney. Morgan & Morgan offers free case reviews, allowing you to learn about your legal rights and options for recovering compensation.

Cases Personal Injuries Attorneys Handle

Personal injury covers a broad field; many accidents can become personal injury lawsuits. Here are some examples of the cases injury lawyers handle:

Traffic Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are common causes of personal injury claims. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), almost 32,000 individuals died in traffic accidents in the first three quarters of 2022 alone. Crashes can occur due to reckless driving, distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and other factors. If you were involved in an accident another driver caused, you could have an injury claim.  

A personal injuries lawyer at Morgan & Morgan can help you navigate the complex insurance and legal process to get the compensation you deserve for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Slips and Falls

Slip and fall accidents can occur at grocery stores, restaurants, and on other properties due to dangerous conditions, such as:

  • Wet floors
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Clutter
  • Lack of warning signs

Property and business owners must maintain their premises properly, keeping them safe for guests and patrons. If you or a loved one suffered harm due to a fall on another’s property, seek legal advice promptly, as you could hold the property owner or occupier accountable.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, provides substandard care that harms the patient. Sadly, medical malpractice is common in the U.S. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, more than a quarter of a million individuals die annually due to medical malpractice. Common medical errors can include misdiagnoses, medication errors, surgery mistakes, early discharge, and others.  

Dog Bites

Dog bites can cause serious injuries, including infections, scarring, and disfigurement. If you or your child suffered injuries in a dog attack, you could recover compensation from the owner or their insurance company. A personal injuries attorney at Morgan & Morgan can help you determine the dog owner’s liability and hold them responsible for your injuries and financial losses.

Dangerous Products

Manufacturers, distributors, and sellers are responsible for ensuring their products are safe and free from defects. If you are hurt by a faulty product, an injury lawyer could help you recover compensation from a manufacturer or another party involved in the distribution chain. Product liability cases involve injuries caused by defective or dangerous products, such as:

  • Electric appliances
  • Toys
  • Vehicles
  • Medication

Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents can result in severe and permanent injuries, such as limb loss, burns, or traumatic brain injuries. Employers must provide a safe working environment for their employees, including proper training and safety equipment. If you have been injured on the job, a personal injuries attorney lawyer can help you pursue compensation through workers’ compensation or a third-party personal injury lawsuit.

Assault and Battery

Assault typically involves intentional harm, such as physical violence or sexual attacks. Victims of assault and battery may suffer from physical injuries, emotional trauma, and financial losses. If another individual attacked or assaulted you, you could file a personal injury lawsuit and seek justice and compensation.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death can occur when a person dies due to the negligence or intentional act of another. Surviving family members could recover compensation for their loss, including funeral expenses, lost income, and lost companionship. A personal injuries attorney at Morgan & Morgan can help you navigate the legal process and get the compensation you deserve.

Personal injury lawyers can handle many more cases than the ones mentioned above. If you believe someone else is responsible for your injuries, whether an individual, business, or government entity, seeking timely legal advice can be crucial.

A Personal Injuries Lawyer Can Help You Recover Fair Compensation

When you are hurt due to another’s fault or carelessness, you should not have to pay for your damages; they should make you “whole” again. You deserve to recover what you need to rebuild your life and face the future without financial insecurity. While damages can vary from case to case, here are some examples of compensation you could receive:

  • Lost income and future lost earning capacity
  • All necessary current and future medical expenses
  • The costs for a home health aide
  • Physical pain and anguish
  • Emotional trauma
  • Reduced life enjoyment
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring
  • Disability

Morgan & Morgan’s personal injuries attorneys work hard to recover fair compensation for our clients. We are here to assess your damages, discuss the worth of your case, and identify your next best steps for getting what you deserve.

  • When Should I Hire a Personal Injuries Lawyer?

    If you suffered an injury due to someone else’s mistake or deliberate action, consider promptly hiring a personal injury lawyer to protect your interests. Here are some reasons why getting a lawyer on your side as soon as possible can be an excellent idea:

    Access to Medical Care

    An injury attorney can help you access medical care and treatment. They can refer you to doctors specializing in treating your injuries and help you obtain the medical documentation necessary to support your claim.

    Preservation of Evidence

    An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you preserve crucial evidence related to your case, including photographs and videos of the crash scene, medical records, and eyewitness accounts. The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to gather and preserve this evidence.

    Negotiation With Insurance Companies

    Insurance companies will often try to settle personal injury claims quickly and for as little money as possible. By hiring a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible, they can take over all communication and negotiation with the insurer, protecting you from any manipulative tactics designed to reduce your payout.

    Having a determined personal injury lawyer by your side from day one can be advantageous for many reasons. Most importantly, they can immediately protect your rights and give you the best chance of recovering what you truly deserve.

  • What Should I Do If Injured in an Accident?

    If you suffer injuries in a car crash, slip and fall, or another type of accident, seek medical attention immediately, even if you do not think your injuries are severe. You should also document the accident, gather evidence, and report the incident to the police. Finally, consider contacting a personal injuries attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

    Generally, the statute of limitations in your state determines the amount of time you have available to file a personal injury lawsuit. The statute is a legal deadline that sets the maximum time you can wait to file a lawsuit after the injury or incident occurred.

    In most states, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is between one and three years. However, the deadline to file a lawsuit can vary depending on the type of case and your state. Therefore, consider speaking with a personal injuries attorney as soon as possible after your accident to clarify your legal rights and determine all applicable deadlines. Waiting too long can mean losing your right to sue and recover damages.

    We understand that getting what you deserve can be frustrating, especially if your case is complex or if you must stand up to a powerful corporation, landlord, or government agency.
