What will a personal injury attorney do for me?

An experienced personal injury attorney will do the following:

  1. Thoroughly investigate the accident, and help you memorialize important information with photos and interviews.
  2. Advise you to follow your doctor’s recommendations or seek a second medical opinion.
  3. Protect you from unscrupulous insurance companies that want to diminish the value of your case.
  4. Monitor your medical records for accuracy and consistency with what your doctor is telling you.
  5. Advise you to seek medical attention, if necessary, in order to reach maximum medical improvement and to receive fair compensation for your damages.
  6. Contact you on a frequent and regular basis for personal status reports.
  7. When the time is right, prepare a detailed “demand package” with an eye toward settling your case, if possible.
  8. Attempt to negotiate a fair settlement for you.
  9. If you wish, file a lawsuit to pursue your claim if the insurance company is unwilling to pay you a fair value to settle.
  10. Negotiate a reduction of your medical expenses.
  11. Settle and pay all liens against your case.
