Personal injury attorneys specialize or opt to represent clients who have acquired bodily harm owing to the negligent action of other people. Normally, a personal injury arises from the failure of another person to take precautions. Examples of such incidents include car or motorcycle accidents, slip and fall incidents, accidents at work, medical malpractice, use of products with defects. Insurance firms are known to pay paltry sums of money as compensation to injured parties.

While different attorneys have their own styles of handling your case, the process is mainly the same. Here is a sneak peek:
- The attorney examines your case based on the information you have provided. If this is insufficient, they may ask for more. He can get in touch with the doctor who treated you in order to determine the exact nature of injuries sustained. The aim is to ascertain what compensation you are likely to receive.
- Your attorney will ask you to narrate the incident that led to your injury. Feel at liberty to say everything you remember seeing or hearing. Keep your medical reports safe and hand them over to the attorney.
- With this information, the personal injury attorney, prepares claims with regard to the medical bills you incurred, loss of income during recuperation or thereafter and the pain or suffering you have gone through. He will also seek compensation for loss of employment or livelihood.
- In majority of the cases, the attorney negotiates with the negligent party’s representatives. These could be attorneys representing the vehicle owner or those for the insurance company. If they fail to agree on an amount, the case goes to court.
