What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?

April 30, 2021

Many people know that a personal injury lawyer can help you receive compensation for injuries sustained in a car accident. But that’s not all a personal injury lawyer can help with. Most personal injury lawyers can help with other types of personal injury cases. The attorneys at Saladino & Schaaf have experience in several practice areas that fall under personal injury law.

What Types of Cases Can My Injury Lawyer Handle?

Each injury law firm focuses on different types of cases. The attorneys at Saladino & Schaaf handle personal injury cases resulting from the following:

What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

Focusing on your recovery after an accident should be your number one goal. As you focus on your medical treatment, medications, surgeries, and therapy, your attorney will focus on protecting your legal rights. Your attorney will become a barrier between you and insurance companies and other parties who can disrupt your recovery process and peace of mind. Your personal injury attorney may help with the following situations:

  • Medical bill payment negotiations with hospital administrators.
  • Responding to questions from investigating officers.
  • Collecting statements from witnesses at the scene of the accident.
  • Providing information and statements about the accident to the insurance company and adjusters.

While you may be able to do some of these things on your own, it’s best to seek an attorney’s advice to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Your attorney acts on your behalf to help navigate confusing post-accident legal processes. A personal injury attorney recognizes and anticipates legal issues before and as they arise, which involves a structured flow of legal tasks.

  • Understanding and Advising You of Your Rights
  • Case Investigation & Discovery
  • Preparing Recorded and Written Insurance Statements
  • Preparing Notices
  • Sending Formal Letters of Representation
  • Reviewing Active Insurance Policies
  • Providing Testing and Review of Defective or Faulty Products
  • Conducting a Detailed Liability Analysis
  • Collecting Medical Bills and Records
  • Requesting Lost Income Information
  • Locating Medical Experts and Expert Witnesses
  • Gathering Economic Projections for Future Wage Losses
  • Confirming Tort Exceptions
  • Filing the Lawsuit
  • Participates in Mediation or Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Preparing for Trial
  • Trying Your Case
  • Requesting and Collecting Damages
  • and much more

As you can see, a personal injury attorney carries a lot of responsibility that would be difficult for someone without legal experience to handle. If you have been injured in an accident, your priority is to get well. Hiring an experienced attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve while giving you the peace of mind to focus on your health.
