The combined costs associated with all types if personal injuries annually in the United States is over $230 billion, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This includes lost wages and medical expenditures associated with personal injuries of all types.
Pasadena personal injury lawyers find themselves representing clients with a wide range of different types of issues arising from accidents caused by the negligence of someone else. These attorneys are adept at assisting injured people in a number of different, and extremely crucial, ways.
At the heart of any personal injury case is the need to obtain appropriate compensation for an injured person. The reality of the insurance claim and civil court systems is that an injured person can face some seemingly insurmountable obstacles to obtain necessary compensation. Some observers make an argument that the cards are stacked against an injured person who lacks representation for a capable personal injury lawyer.
With the professional assistance of Pasadena personal injury lawyers, an injured person is in the best positon to obtain compensation for a range of different types of losses that include medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
Another reality associated with personal injuries is that problems of all types can carry forth into the future. A capable personal injury attorney will fight to ensure that an injured individual obtains not only appropriate compensation for current losses, but for those reasonably expected to be incurred in the future.
Medical bills very well may continue to mount into the future. Pain and suffering can persist for an indefinite period of time. An injured person may not be able to return to work, or return to working full time, in the immediate future.
Developing a Strong Case
Insurance companies are committed to minimizing the amount of money spent on settling claims. In the absence of a settled claim, filing a lawsuit brings an injured person into a very complex judicial system.
Another reason an injured person needs a personal injury attorney rests in the fact that skilled counsel is able to develop a strong case on behalf of client. This includes everything from investigating the facts and circumstances of an accident to making powerful legal arguments to further an injured client’s position in a claim or lawsuit.
A personal injury lawyer is also able to assist an injured person with settling claims with an insurance company. An experienced legal professional has the tenacity and knowledge necessary to take on even the most obstinate of insurance carriers.
Some injured individuals put off retaining counsel, believing they can effectively handle negotiating with an insurance company on their own. Time and again, an injured person with a lawyer obtains a higher settlement from an insurance company, according to statistics maintained by the American Bar Association.
If a reasonable settlement with an insurance company is not forthcoming, a personal injury lawyer has the ability to prepare, file, and pursue a lawsuit on behalf of an injured client. A personal injury case involves complex law and complicated court procedure. Only a lawyer with a background in personal injury litigation truly is capable of maneuvering through the judicial system on behalf of an injured client.
