How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?

If personal injury law or car accident claims are new to you, there is an awful lot you will want to know about the subject before you jump in and file a personal injury lawsuit or file a car accident claim. Even if you are one of the lucky people who have not been involved in an accident, you may still want to know more about the ins and outs of car accident claims. Dealing with an insurance company on your own or filing a lawsuit without an attorney can be a scary proposition. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the ways a personal injury can help with your claim.

Legal Information: When you ask a personal injury lawyer or law firm for information, you are simply asking for general information on a subject without application to the specific facts of your case. For example, a company or person might have heard about a new law and want to get some further explanation on it. Maybe you have a general question on the ownership of a piece of land or the damages that may be available to you in your personal injury claim.

Legal Advice: asking a lawyer for device is asking the lawyer to recommend a specific course of action based on the specific facts and the applicable law. Based on the lawyers advised a client will or will not do something to protect Israel his or her legal rights. If the lawyer is wrong in their advice there may or may not be a responsibility for malpractice. When you consult a lawyer, you must be clear on whether you want information or advice. Information is just general law and general information that’s not applied to your case. Alternatively, when a lawyer provides legal advice, the lawyer is taking into consideration the specific facts and laws that apply to your case.

Advocacy: After a lawyer provides a client with legal information and legal advice, the next way a lawyer can assist is through legal advocacy. After advice a client is given both general information on a legal subject and specific advice to do or not to do something under the applicable law based on the facts. At the advocacy stage a client now wants the lawyer to do something. Either the client wants the lawyer to get the client something the client feels he or she is entitled to under the law. During the advocacy stage there is usually going to be contact with third parties, insurance companies, or the responsible party. If a personal injury lawyer is not able to produce the desired results through legal advocacy, the next step is usually to begin negotiations or proceed to litigation or some form of mediation or arbitration.

Negotiation: A skilled experienced lawyer will negotiate with the opposing side with a view toward reaching an agreement that maximizes benefits to their client. If you have a dispute or some type of issue, a good lawyer will normally try to discuss a reasonable mutually advantageous settlement or solution to your case. Negotiation can take place any time before during or after the litigation process.

Litigation: Litigation is pretty much the most aggressive form of legal advocacy available. In some cases, litigation is a first step. But in most personal injury cases, litigation should follow only if efforts at negotiating a mutually agreeable settlement are unsuccessful. In reality, litigation can be pretty expensive, and no client should ever want to willingly engage in litigation unless they absolutely need to.

Alternative Dispute Resolution: Mediation and arbitration are two types of alternative dispute resolution because they are alternatives to traditional civil litigation. That means there is no traditional jury, no technical rules of evidence to deal with, and most importantly, no delays. This means that the entire mediation or arbitration process can get done quickly and efficiently. In arbitration, a third-party act like a judge. The third-party listens to the parties and their witnesses and makes it a legal decision. In mediation, a third-party uses skills and training and experience to get both sides to realistically understand their position and the in the other persons position and then come to their own agreement and they can both live with mediation and arbitration are cheaper and faster than litigation, and if it doesn’t work out, you won’t have lost so much by trying.
