Personal injury victims do not plan to get injured. Their injuries are caused by circumstances that are outside of their control, and usually by circumstances that are linked to the negligence of others.
The negative experiences that a person has after a personal injury can affect them and their family for months or even years after the incident takes place. In addition to the physical trauma a personal injury victim experiences, there is the mental, emotional, and financial challenges they face.
Physicians and mental health professionals may work with the victim to help them repair the injuries to their mind and body. A personal injury lawyer works to help the victim to seek the financial compensation needed to repair the damage done to their quality of life.
At El Dabe Law Firm, we have been working with clients in Encinitas for more than three decades. Our goal has always been to help them put their lives back together after a personal injury.
The Benefits of Using a Personal Injury Attorney
In the same way that a doctor is needed to help a personal injury victim repair the physical injuries they have sustained, so a personal injury attorney is needed to address the financial and legal concerns connected to the injury.
Personal injury attorneys help their clients in the following ways:
Assessing the Claim- Our personal injury attorneys work with accident claims daily. Thanks to our years of experience, we are able to evaluate whether or not the injury claim is valid, and whether or not a lawyer should move forward with the client. This helps a victim from being victimized further by spending money and energy on a court case that will go nowhere. When it is decided that a case deserves legal action, personal injury attorneys can recommend the best course of action to pursue.
Communicating with Insurance Companies- Insurance companies are easy to communicate with when you have to pay your premium bill. They are kind, they are friendly, and they are inviting. However, the situation completely changes when you are seeking compensation for an injury. Now, your interest as a victim and the insurance company’s interests no longer harmonize. Communications go from friendly to hostile. Our Encinitas personal injury lawyers will do the communication and negotiation for you. We serve as a liaison, alleviating the stress associated with your claim.
Providing Practical Medical Information- When you experience a serious physical injury, it is likely that this is the first time you have ever dealt with that type of injury. However, it is likely that our personal injury attorneys have seen that injury before, and we know the physicians, medical tests, and procedures that you should follow in order to get the best care as well as the right information needed for your case. We will work with you and your doctors to explain your injury as well as the impact of the injury will have on a potential settlement.
Legal Advice- The law is very complicated when it comes to personal injuries. There are statutes of limitation that might hamper your ability to get to the compensation you deserve. If you try to handle your case on your own, you might make a misstep that will damage your case permanently. Our expert legal team deals with these types of cases daily, and so we won’t miss a beat when it comes to defending you.
Determining the Value of Your Settlement- When you or someone you love is the victim of a personal injury, it can be difficult to be unbiased. It can be difficult to accurately identify the value of your claim. Our lawyers can give you a realistic, unbiased figure for what a likely settlement in your case will be. We can help you from overshooting, but we can also help you from under evaluating your case.
