Personal injury cases can be pretty tricky, there’s no doubt about it. It doesn’t matter how you’ve been hurt or what treatments you’ve had to undergo to facilitate your recovery, your case can easily become very complicated without the right help. You probably think you have an open and shut case simply because you weren’t at fault, and because everything seemed to be in order.
Some things are just common sense, right? Well if you’ve ever looked at a law book for any length of time then you know that there is a provision for everything and quite honestly you don’t have the tie to learn the letter of the law before you rush headlong into the case. One thing you can always be certain of is that the defense will have a PI attorney, especially in the event of a personal injury.
What is a Personal Injury?
So what is a personal injury exactly? What makes it different from any other type of injury that you might undergo or experience? First of all, a personal injury is one that happens to your body rather than one that happens to your reputation or property. It might seem silly that this needs to be explained, because when you think of an injury you automatically think of one happening to your body rather than your property, but legally these things need to be differentiated. This is where good PI attorneys will come in handy, and they’re a great way to get your case off the ground.
Go to Court Prepared
There is a strong chance that you’re not actually going to go to trial unless the defense believes that they have a chance of winning. Believe it or not, 96% of them don’t. That isn’t a statistic we made up on the spot; it actually turns out that only 4% of cases actually make it to trial while the rest are settled entirely out of court which can be a better deal for you.
If you take the case to court there is a chance that you will not win or receive compensation of any kind – it’s really a 50/50 thing and depends heavily on the human element. If on the other hand you are offered compensation in the form of a settlement, you are guaranteed money. This is usually a good enough reason to settle unless that settlement being offered does not meet your needs or you feel it is inadequate; sometimes, however, you need to pick your battles.
If you want to get a decent settlement to cover your expenses or even get a little extra spending money for yourself, then you’re going to need to go in prepared for a battle. You need the best personal injury lawyers you can find in the state, and most importantly you need to know your rights. We’re going to help you, we’re going to advise you, and most importantly we’re going to help you to get what you deserve.
Whatever you do, make sure you don’t’ go into court alone and unguarded. There are far too many people out there undergoing court cases just like yours who make the mistake of trying self-representation. While it might work on television, and while it might seem like a good idea to your mind, you will not be able to stand toe to toe with a seasoned attorney in the courtroom if you do not have legal experience. It’s just a simple fact.
