How Our Visalia Accident Lawyers Can Help You
After a serious accident that causes you injuries or leads to the death of a relative, you may not be sure of what to do. You may handle whatever task is in front of you that day. You deal with doctors, and you figure out ways to pay the bills coming in. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we want to help you do more than live day-to-day. We want to help you obtain the compensation you need to move forward from this incident without jeopardizing your finances with unexpected medical expenses or possibly, funeral and burial expenses. In pursuit of fair compensation for your injuries or loss, our Visalia personal injury attorneys will:
We Will Investigate the Accident, Gather Evidence, Analyze Fault
Before you can confidently pursue compensation, you need to know what happened, why it happened, and who is responsible. Our team will conduct a thoroughly and independent investigation into the accident. We will gather as much evidence as possible, including photos, videos, sound recordings, physical objects, documentation, electronic information, and eye witness statements. Depending on the complexity of your circumstances, we also may hire expert witnesses. All of this enables us to analyze who is directly at fault for the accident. Once we know who caused your injuries or relative’s death, we take it one step further and analyze the liable party. In many circumstances, the party who directly caused the accident is not the party who will be responsible for compensating you. The most common example is when an on-duty employer causes you harm. In many cases, the employer and the business’s insurance policy will respond to your claim.
We Will Identify and Calculate Your Damages
Once you have evidence regarding who is at fault for the accident and your injuries, the next step is for our Visalia accident lawyers to fully understand your damages, which is a legal term for your physical, psychological, and financial injuries. We will work closely with you and your medical providers to understand your physical injuries and their repercussions, including whether you are off work, whether you will suffer from extensive scarring or a disfigurement, or whether you will have a permanent physical or cognitive disability. We will explore how your daily life and future have changed. All of this information will help us to determine the value of your non-economic damages. Additionally, we will work with you, your medical providers, and when necessary, expert witnesses, to calculate your economic expenses and losses, including your medical bills, lost wages, and reduced income.
Handle the Insurance Claim Process, Negotiate a Settlement
One of the most frustrating aspects you may encounter after an unexpected accident is dealing with the liable party’s insurance company. Insurers can be challenging to work with in their demands for medical records and other documentation. However, our Visalia personal injury lawyers have years of experience in handling insurance claims. We know what to expect from insurers and how to appropriately respond. If the other party denies responsibility, we know the steps to take to prove your claim. If the insurer is willing to offer a payout, then we will participate in negotiations to reach a fair settlement.
We Will File a Lawsuit, Litigate Your Claim
Following a serious accident, we may recommend filing a lawsuit, even if we do not expect to go to trial. The discovery process during a lawsuit can enable us to gather additional evidence. It also puts pressure on the other party and their insurer to settle. They will take your claim seriously once they know you are represented by an attorney and are willing to litigate. Additionally, our team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is willing to take your claim to court. We are not afraid to fight for your right to compensation at trial.
