What Does A Personal Injury Lawyer Really Do?
“You were injured as a result of another’s negligence”, then the radio announcer says to visit a website to learn how this particular Personal Injury Law Firm can help you. The website is filled with lots of generic information, videos telling you about their firm and some social media links, yet lacks the answers to your exact questions.
Yes, you are injured and yes, maybe you do need legal representation. But, when an advertisement or in this case a radio announcement informs you about a website and that website doesn’t tell you why you need a personal injury lawyer or even what a personal injury lawyer really does, it kind of makes you feel like you were misled. Doesn’t it?
You would think that a lawyer would want to educate you on what you should know and expect. Unfortunately, that’s not always how it works. And, when you visit their website, you’re hoping to find solutions yet you leave feeling even more frustrated.
So let’s talk about what a personal injury lawyer really does and why you might need to enlist them for your case.
A personal injury attorney is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who have been injured as result of negligence or wrongdoing from a person, company, government agency or other entity. A personal injury attorney generally represents victims of work injuries, automobile accidents, defective products, medical mistakes and slip and fall accidents.
In addition, a personal injury attorney is responsible for interviewing prospective clients, evaluating their case to determine validity, identify issues that caused the injury and then if determined, will move forward with a case. Ultimately, a personal injury lawyer helps obtain compensation for his/her client’s losses.
So if a personal injury attorney is supposed to all those things can’t any lawyer that advertises as a personal injury attorney help?
And that, leads us back to how this article started. Some personal injury attorneys do more to educate than others. Some indeed do care how they are perceived and if they tell people to go to a website that there is ample information that tells those injured what steps to take and why they are taking those steps.
