4 Reasons You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

When you are injured in an accident, the first thing that will most likely
happen is a visit to the doctor. Tending to any injuries will be the number
one priority.

After you receive medical attention, you may begin to realize how quickly
your medical bills add up. You may have to go back for follow-up appointments,
physical therapy, and medications. In addition, you may be put out of
work for a period of time, which then makes those medical bills feel that
much more significant.

Many people who are injured in an accident try to handle all of the bills
and their injury case on their own because they don’t know that
they can get the help of a
personal injury attorney. However, having an attorney on your side can give you a much more favorable
chance of obtaining compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and
physical and emotional damages.

There are many reasons why hiring a personal injury attorney is beneficial
to those who have sustained injuries. Here’s what an attorney can
do for you:

1. An Attorney Knows How to Gather All the Evidence Needed.

In order to prove liability in an accident, there is specific evidence
that needs to be gathered.
Personal injury attorneys do this on a daily basis for their clients and know the ins and outs of
what specific evidence is needed to prove a claim. Gathering evidence
also takes time and effort, especially if you aren’t familiar with
this process. Let your attorney do this work, so you can take that time to heal.

2. An Attorney Knows How to Handle Insurance Companies.

Most people don’t have to deal with insurance companies on a daily
basis. However, insurance companies deal with injury victims regularly,
and most will attempt to find ways to deny your claim to avoid paying
you money. The good news is that one of the jobs of
experienced personal injury attorneys is to deal with insurance companies so you don’t have to do it.
They will be able to communicate on your behalf and show evidence to get
you the best possible settlement.

3. An Attorney Is Not Afraid to Go to Trial.

In the event that your insurance company does not give you a settlement,
your case will then go to trial. Don’t worry though – a
seasoned personal injury attorney will not back down from fighting for the compensation you need. They will
provide you with aggressive representation in order to obtain a fair outcome.
Most of the time, having an attorney in your corner can dramatically improve
your odds of winning in court.

4. Your Attorney Is Motivated To Help You Win.

Many are under the impression that personal injury attorneys are simply
after the client’s settlement. However, this is far from the truth.
Most injury attorneys, including the ones at
Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci, work on contingency fees. This means that we do all the work for our
clients free-of-charge and only get a percentage of your settlement if
we help you win. That’s right,
clients don’t pay unless we help them win their case and they receive

Wrongful Death

Honoring the memories of the loves of his life

The story in the Joplin Globe of a Pittsburg girl, her mother and her dad is enough to break your heart and at the same time reaffirm a belief in the goodness of most people. The girl was just 13 years old when she was killed with her mom in 2009 by a drunk driver in a car accident. The girl died at the scene of the crash; her mom


Personal Injury Settlement

Should I settle my personal injury case?  If you’ve been wrongfully injured, you might want to file a personal injury claim to get compensated for your losses. While some of those lawsuits might go all the way to trial, the majority of cases are settled out of court. A settlement gives up your right to pursue further legal action in exchange for money.  How does a settlement work? And is

Medical Malpractice

One important reason to work with an experienced med mal attorney: gathering evidence

Last time, we began speaking about the potential importance increased documentation of medical care and surgical procedures could play in reducing the incidence of medical malpractice in the United States. As we noted, the suggestion that health care providers routinely tape surgeries and other procedures has certainly been met with some resistance, understandably so. For one thing, routine video documentation of health care delivery could potentially provide a significant avenue
