How Your Levittown Brain Injury Lawyer Will Fight for You
There’s a lot involved in the fight for a claimant’s damages. First, your lawyer will identify your damages and the party liable for those damages. Then, your lawyer will fight to establish that party’s liability. This fight involves all of the following:
Showing Evidence of Liability
Sometimes, even gathering evidence can be a battle with a party if they hide certain evidence. For example, a company might hide a black box belonging to a truck involved in an accident. By promptly sending a preservation/”spoliation” letter your lawyer will work to prevent the other party in your case from hiding any evidence and position your claim so that if they do, it should be held against them if the case reaches the trial stage.
Your lawyer will also seek out evidence from other sources, such as the authorities, witnesses, and cameras. Additionally, your lawyer will seek invaluable corroborating evidence from various experts, such as an accident reconstructionist.
Once your lawyer has evidence, your lawyer will show it to the other party’s insurer or, if necessary to a judge and jury during a trial in the courthouse.
Establishing Negligence in Your Case
To actually prove liability in your case, your lawyer will need to establish negligence. To do this, your lawyer will have to show how:
- The party responsible for your incident owed you a duty of care (a responsibility to act in a careful manner).
- The party breached their duty of care (such as by failing to remove a hazard from a premises).
- The breach of duty caused the incident (such as by causing you to slip and fall).
- The incident resulted in damages (claimable, compensable losses).
Negotiating Your Settlement
Negotiations can also be a battle. The insurer might try to diminish your damages to reduce your payout. They could even just ignore certain damages, like your intangible damages. Your lawyer will do everything necessary to prevent the insurer from reducing your payout.
For example, your lawyer will attribute monetary value to your intangible damages, like your mental suffering. Your lawyer will use a valuation method that is appropriate for your case and that’s approved by most insurers.
If necessary, your lawyer will sue the at-fault party which should pressure the insurer to negotiate in good faith. If a suit is commenced and the insurer continues to deny, delay, and defend the claim, your lawyer will ask a jury to deliver the compensation you are entitled to and the justice you deserve.
Taking Your Case to Court
If negotiations don’t work out and your Levittown brain injury attorney does take your case to court and fight there for an appropriate verdict from a judge and jury, your attorney will bring in expert witnesses, such as a doctor/medical expert, who can provide testimony to support your case.
