Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
We can demand compensation for you
You’ve been hurt in a personal injury accident that was caused by the negligence of someone else. Medical expenses can add up fast. You may have missed time from work. You feel you deserve financial compensation and want to pursue a claim with the insurance company. Your case seems straightforward and you may ask yourself, “Do I need a lawyer?”
There is no requirement for you to have a lawyer. But when you are dealing with insurance companies, they often have the advantage. They deal with claims every single day and often use many tactics to try to pay you less. At Warner Law Offices, we don’t think that’s acceptable. We fight to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
How can having a personal injury attorney help you? Our firm can:
Investigate your accident – Negligent parties may deny doing anything wrong and insurance companies may challenge your claim. Our legal team investigates your accident to get the facts that prove negligence. We gather evidence, including any video or photographic evidence. We carefully review accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
Hold negligent parties accountable – We identify the negligent party or parties who caused the accident that left you injured. For example, a driver may have been speeding, texting or fell asleep at the wheel. Or a property owner may have failed to fix a hazard that caused you to slip and fall.
Determine your total damages – Damages is legal term for your accident-related expenses. These may include your medical expenses, including future medical treatment related to your injuries. You might also need money for lost wages if you had to miss time from work or loss of earning capacity if you can no longer work due to your injury. Other types of damages include property damage, disability, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life and pain and suffering.
Deal with insurance companies – Insurance companies will often try to pay you as little as possible. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or argue that they were pre-existing conditions. They may blame you for causing the accident or try to pressure you into accepting a settlement for less than you deserve. We deal with the insurance companies on your behalf so you can focus on healing from your injuries.
Negotiate a settlement – Most personal injury cases are resolved this way. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who are only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs and provides compensation for all of the damages you have suffered.
Fight for you in court – Sometimes, insurance companies are not willing to negotiate a settlement that works for you. We have decades of trial experience and know how to present convincing cases to juries.
Insurance companies have lawyers looking out for their best interests. You need an experienced attorney who will protect your rights and help you fight back.
