What Can a New Cassel Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer do for Me?
You may be feeling overwhelmed by your pain, anguish, and debt. A lawyer from our firm can take on your case for you so you can tend to your physical and mental health. Your lawyer will fight to recover every dollar of compensation you are entitled to so that you can pay off your debt, as well as help you with the following:
Identify the Party Liable for Your Damages
In your case, this party may be a motorist, a company, or another kind of entity. Regardless, your lawyer can investigate your incident and identify the liable party. If multiple parties are liable in your case, your lawyer can identify each of them and hold each accountable for your damages.
Communicate With All Parties for You
You won’t have to speak with the other party or their insurer at all. Your lawyer will advocate for you relentlessly while fighting to assert all your rights to be compensated for your damages.
Gather Evidence for Your Case
To establish your damages and the other party’s liability for them, your lawyer will need evidence. Evidence of your damages could be your medical bills and a statement from a medical professional, while evidence of liability could be camera footage of the incident and a statement from a witness. There could be a lot more evidence for your case, and your lawyer will seek it all out for you.
Our firm works with a number of different experts, as called for by the unique presentation of each case, who provide invaluable services for our clients, including medical services, and in-court expert witness testimony. Among these experts are economists, medical experts, vocational rehabilitation specialists, and life care planners.
Determine the Value of Your Case
Once you, your doctor, and your lawyer have determined what all of your damages are, your lawyer can then determine their overall value. To do this, your lawyer will have to attribute monetary values to your physical, mental, and/or emotional damages, and then add these values to your financial damages.
It’s difficult to valuate intangible damages, like physical pain, but your lawyer will have valuation methods to use. Typically, insurance companies recognize and approve of these methods.
Resolve Your Case
Finally, your lawyer can present your case to the other party’s insurer and attempt to negotiate a settlement with them. Your lawyer will be prepared for any tactics the insurer may use to avoid compensating you appropriately.
If the insurer doesn’t make an appropriate payout offer, your lawyer can resolve your case with a judge, instead. Your lawyer can then file a lawsuit and take your case right to court.
