How Can a Paso Robles Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me Recover?
In a personal injury case, your lawyer will need to prove several key facts. First, he or she needs to convince an insurance company – or a California judge or jury – that the other party was at fault by acting negligently, that is, with reckless disregard for your safety. Your lawyer will also need to draw a connection between the other party’s conduct and your injuries, and successfully monetize your damages. Your lawyer will prove your case in several different ways. He or she may work with your physicians to evaluate your injuries and calculate your medical expenses. You may work with an accident reconstructionist to re-enact the incident that caused your injuries. You may work with your employer to place a monetary value on the income you lost – and will continue to lose – as a result of your inability to work post-accident. At a minimum, your lawyer will visit the accident scene, review photographic and video evidence, and speak with eyewitnesses to gather more intel on the incident. Once your lawyer has gathered enough evidence to create a compelling case, he or she will usually first present your claim to the other party’s insurer. In many cases, your claim will stop there: particularly if your injuries are minor, you can often walk away with a decent payout from the insurer. This settlement will allow you to cover your medical bills and manage other expenses stemming from the accident. However, in many other cases, your lawyer may choose to forego this step (or, you may find the insurer’s offer unacceptable) and in these cases, you may head to trial. Preparing for trial is a stressful and challenging feat, but a good lawyer will walk you through the process from start to finish.
