No one calls a personal injury attorney until they need one. That means that it’s likely that when you first think about if you or a loved one needs a lawyer that you’ll probably be distraught and perhaps in some pain.
You won’t necessarily be in the best frame of mind for making such a momentous decision.
And yet so much is riding on whom you select to represent your interests
“a good attorney can make the difference between winning or losing a personal injury case.”
Even if you settle out of court, a good attorney will make sure that you get the maximum amount due you for your expenses and damages.
We tend to think of personal injury occurring in a sidewalk slip-and-fall or an automobile accident. But in fact, there are lots of ways that people can get injured, such as:
- Food-borne illnesses
- On-the-job accidents
- Unexpected side effects from prescription drugs
- Asbestos exposure
- Medical malpractice
- Wrongful death of a loved one
