Numerous factors affect personal injury claims and lawsuits, as each case is unique.
To be successful, we must collect evidence and establish the fault of the party or parties responsible for the injuries. The circumstances of the incident in question and the proof necessary to show responsibility vary dramatically from case to case. In motor vehicle crashes, for example, here are common steps we take to obtain adequate proof:
- Collecting police and investigative reports
- Interviewing witnesses
- Taking and collecting photographs
- Sometimes hiring expert witnesses
Proving the Extent of Injuries
We also need to prove the full extent of the client’s injuries. It is important to establish the losses that the client has suffered. Again, this is an individualized process that accounts for each client’s unique circumstances. We often collect medical records, medical bills, and wage loss documentation after the client has healed or we have determined that the client’s injuries will no longer improve. It is often necessary to obtain expert reports related to damages as well.
We typically compile those materials and make a demand of the insurance company responsible for the loss to see if we can reach a fair settlement. In cases where there is a dispute that cannot be resolved via settlement, we can file a lawsuit in court on the client’s behalf: many times, even cases in litigation resolve by settlement. But for clients whose cases cannot be settled, we proudly and skillfully represent them at a trial before a judge or jury.
While the path to successful recovery varies, our commitment to understanding the details of each client’s case and obtaining the best result possible does not waiver.
