Why Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?

Before you could make a choice concerning whether you must retain a personal injury attorney / lawyer, you first have to know just what a personal injury case is.

A lot of people believe that a personal injury claim is just a car o-r automobile accident claim. While an injury sustained in a car accident where yet another was to blame would be a personal injury claim, there are various other issues that also come under that heading.

A personal injury attorney / lawyer addresses matters where there has been a injury, either physical or emotional, which was brought on by the neglect of another. For alternative viewpoints, consider having a view at: failure to diagnose a carcinoma. If there was no negligence then there's no case. There must be negligence, whether intentional or accidental, on the part of another, for a claim to be appropriate. Quite simply, you'd have trouble making a case against your landlord, where you poured water on your own kitchen floor and then slipped and fell because of the water. Nevertheless, if the landlord had failed to fix the plumbing under your sink and the water was on the ground due to leaky plumbing then you may, I say may, have an incident. There are other variables that may come into play and you'd need to seek the advice of a good injury lawyer, as a way to determin your rights.

There are many matters besides car accident matters that can many times be incorporated under personal injury, IE: slips and falls, workplace accidents (following a workplace accident you may be covered under employees compensation or disability but you may also have a injury claim), injuries caused during a storm or power interruption, aircraft, bus and train accidents, building accidents, fires, food accumulation, drug or supplement overdoses, animal hits, getting pummelled, robbed or otherwise hurt inside or outside a business, medical malpractice and even malpractice by an attorney.

There are many factors that will come into play in determining negligence and many times you may think that there was no negligence on the part of everyone when there really was. I myself, know of a situation in which a party was hit with a car while riding a bike and wounded severely. He settled with the driver and the driver's insurance company for that $100,000.00 maximum of the driver's insurance policy. This arrangement didn't even begin to cover his medical expenses. A while later, a personal injury attorney, while talking to a part of the injured party's family, found about the case and was expected to look into it for the family. The injured party was paralyzed and shattered. The attorney did some checking and then agreed that, although the man had approved the settlement, there may possibly be a case. Then he employed another and my detective agency to accomplish further study. Finally, he filed a suit against the drivers insurance provider, the vehicle driver, the motorcycle manufacturer and others. I'll maybe not get into the whole situation, but suffice it to state that he went to trial and finished up finding a verdict against several of the parties, such as the owners insurance provider and the motorcycle maker, for several million dollars and the injured party is no longer broke. I would add the attorney took the case on contingency and advanced, out of his own pocket, all the expenses including court costs and investigation expenses.

The purpose of the foregoing is that if you have been injured, you should seek the advice of the skilled personal injury attorney even if you don't think that there's anybody at fault. Just a good experienced injury lawyer could try to make that determination..
