Service You Can Expect from Your Levittown Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Your lawyer can manage your entire case for you from beginning to end so that you can focus your energy and attention on your health and family matters. Once your lawyer has helped you identify your damages, your lawyer will:
Identify the Party Liable for Your Damages
You might be convinced a particular party is liable for your damages. This party may be the one that caused your accident; however, another party could be liable for your damages. For example, if you were in a car accident caused by a motorist, but the motorist is a rideshare driver, the rideshare company may be liable for your damages.
Your lawyer can identify the liable party for you and if your lawyer identifies multiple liable parties, your lawyer can hold all of them accountable for your damages.
Communicate With the Insurer in Your Case
You will not have to communicate with anyone other than your lawyer. Your lawyer can take care of all communications with the insurance company and their lawyers. This arrangement should be easy on you and ensure that your lawyer can protect your rights.
Build Your Case with Evidence
Your lawyer will need two kinds of evidence for your case. One kind will show that you have claimable, compensable damages, such evidence could be your medical and financial documents. The second kind of evidence your lawyer will need will show the other party in your case is liable for your damages. Such evidence could be camera footage or a witness’s account of the incident.
Your lawyer can seek out all of the evidence needed for your case. When necessary, your lawyer can reach out to experts that our firm works with for corroborating evidence, which ultimately could include the expert testifying at trial.
Valuate Your Case for You
On your own, you might struggle to determine the monetary value of your case. It isn’t as simple as adding up all of your financial damages. You have non-financial damages that have to be valuated as well.
Your lawyer can valuate these damages for you and make a compelling argument to the at-fault party’s insurance carrier as to why you are entitled to recover these sums.
Negotiate or Litigate for a Resolution
Finally, your spinal cord injury lawyer can negotiate with the insurer for a settlement. Your attorney can prevent the insurer from diminishing your case, and, if necessary, threaten to sue them. Your lawyer can sue both the insurer and the other party if it could lead to a verdict from a judge.
