When you or a loved one has sustained injuries from an accident and another person is at fault, a personal injury lawyer can help you seek compensation. But before you retain an attorney, it is helpful to know some basic facts about personal injury law.
1. Every Personal Injury Case is Unique
Personal injury cases generally include any incident where a person suffers injuries due to the neglect or misconduct of another person or entity. Since there are numerous ways in which this can occur, the types of personal injury cases that can take place are almost limitless. For example, a personal injury can occur due to a car accident, slip and fall, defective product or medical malpractice, to name a few. Even within these categories, the facts of every accident or incident will be different.
At Farah & Farah, our personal injury attorneys do not treat such incidents as cookie-cutter cases because they are all unique.
2. Obtaining a Fair Settlement Can Be Difficult
Many injured people believe that if another person or entity was at fault, the entity or their insurance company will simply pay for the value of the injury. Unfortunately, it is rarely this simple. No matter how clear fault may appear to be, the insurance company or corporation is not likely to simply roll over and admit fault. This is why you need a personal injury attorney who is willing to fight for your cause.
3. You May Need Experts to Support Your Case
It is common for a personal injury case to require experts in support of the case. Generally, you will need to prove the other person’s fault or liability, as well as the economic value of your injuries or damages. The following are some examples of the types of experts that may be necessary to prove liability and damages:
- Accident reconstruction experts
- An expert to prove product is defective
- A medical expert who understands disability ratings
- A vocational expert to testify about what type of job you can perform with your injuries
- An economist to determine lost wages
At Farah & Farah, we are an established firm with the resources necessary to obtain any expert you may need to prove your case. We also have access to the best experts in their fields, so you never need to wonder if your case is being prosecuted to the fullest.
