PERSONAL INJURY

 

The Wilson Advocacy Group, P.A., our goal is not to maximize our legal fees, but to restore you to as close a position as you were before your incident. Sometimes all you need is help getting a medical provider — not an attorney — and we promise to let you know if this is the case or if you need aggressive representation in court.

 

What Is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

 

Understanding exactly what counts as personal injury can be confusing.  On the surface, the phrase “personal injury” is pretty broad and can cover a lot of ground especially if you’re wondering if you’ve got a situation that could be a lawsuit. A good plain English description of what constitutes a personal injury is:

 

“Personal injury is an injury not to property, but to your body, mind or emotions. For example, if you slip and fall on a banana peel in the grocery store, personal injury covers any actual physical harm (broken leg and bruises) you suffered in the fall as well as the humiliation of falling in public, but not the harm of shattering your watch.”

 

A personal injury lawsuit is a legal case where someone sues another person or company for compensation to cover physical and mental damages. A personal injury lawyer will tell you that a lawsuit can be filed whether the injury is intentional, accidental or a result of a faulty product.

 

Types of Personal Injury:

 

While the following are examples of potential personal injury lawsuits, they do not include all the potential types of personal injury cases.

 

  • Bodily Injury is the most commonly understood type of personal injury case where the victim has been injured due to the behavior of another person, property owner or company.

  • Economic Injury - Certain personal injury cases come from economic damages instead of physical injury. For instance, if someone's negligent behavior reduces the value of your home or other property that counts an economic injury.
     

Do I Need to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

 

Since so many types of injuries fall under the category of “personal injury”, it’s especially important to talk with a lawyer.  Keep in mind that the goal of insurance companies – both your own and that of the defendant – is to make a profit and they don’t make a profit by paying settlements. For that reason, you should speak to an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.

 

You don’t have to have a lawyer if your goal is to settle with the insurance company but having a lawyer represent your personal injury case has many benefits.  If you have a lawyer negotiate with an insurance company it’s entirely possible they will offer you a larger settlement than if you negotiate directly with the insurance company. A lawyer will also know what documentation you will need to help build the strongest case possible.

 

Another benefit of hiring a lawyer is that they know what questions to ask such as:

 

  • What are the insurance liability limits?

  • Are there other sources of insurance?

  • What is the monetary value of your case?

  • What is the best way to approach the negotiation?

 

A lawyer can also help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. Once a lawsuit has been filed your attorney is now dealing with another attorney instead of an insurance adjustor.  Also, once a lawsuit has been filed the court is involved in the supervision of the case. Now your case has deadlines for the filing of various documents, depositions of witnesses may be taken and important documents may be subpoenaed. Having your lawyer file a lawsuit doesn’t guarantee a larger settlement but you are more likely to get a settlement that reflects the true value of your case.

If you have been injured in an accident that occurred because of another person's negligence, you have the right to be fully compensated for any losses you suffer as a result. While you would hope that the responsible party's insurance company would honor its obligation and offer a fair settlement, it will almost always default to protecting its own interests and attempting to settle for the lowest amount it can or deny the claim completely, if possible.
