What Your Hicksville Brain Injury Lawyer Will Do for You
Your lawyer will take on every detail of the case for you, so you won’t have to worry about anything other than your health and your family. You won’t even have to worry about paying your lawyer since your lawyer won’t accept any payment until after they recover damages for you. As your lawyer works on your case, they will keep you updated.
Some of the major tasks your lawyer will take on for you include:
Identifying the Party Liable for Your Damages
A party other than the one that directly caused your accident may have legal/financial liability for the harm you have suffered, For example, if your accident was caused by the direct actions of a motorist, and if that motorist was a company employee, the company may be liable for your damages. Thanks to extensive training and years of professional practice, successfully working on cases like yours, your lawyer, will be able to identify the liable party or parties. This will relieve you of the burden of trying to figure all this out.
Gathering Evidence of Negligence and Your Damages
Generally, to establish that another party is liable in your case, your lawyer will need evidence of their negligence. They will seek out sources like witnesses and the authorities and gather any evidence from them. In your case, evidence could be cell phone camera footage, dashcam video, surveillance video and the police report.
Your lawyer will also need evidence of your damages, such as your medical bills. They will collect this evidence for you.
Determining the Monetary Value of Your Intangible Damages
It’s easy for a claimant to establish the exact value of their financial damages. They simply need to add individual values together. However, it isn’t this easy to establish the value of intangible damages, like psychological suffering.
Your lawyer will have methods for valuating your intangible damages so you can recover them. Your lawyer from our team will present this to the at-fault and otherwise liable parties’ insurance companies in a persuasive and compelling manner.
Negotiating a Settlement With an Insurer
This can be especially difficult for a claimant to do on their own, especially if facing a large company and a major insurance company. Generally, insurers and other companies want to protect themselves and their profits, so they’ll do anything they have to in order to reduce the claimant’s payout.
Your lawyer will do everything necessary to protect your payout. If the insurer isn’t willing to offer one, your lawyer will be ready, willing, and able to sue them. Commencing litigation moves the case toward a trial before a judge and jury in the courthouse. This pressure can work to bring uncooperative insurance carriers in line to make an appropriate settlement offer.
Obtaining a Verdict from a Judge
If your lawyer has to litigate your case, they will represent you in court and fight for an appropriate verdict. They also can hire experts to reinforce your case in court.
