Many people wonder just how a personal injury attorney can help after an accident. A compassionate, zealous lawyer who is on your side is actually one of the most valuable things you can have after an accident. Your lawyer will gather evidence about your case, including accident photos, medical records, and police reports, keeping them safe and all in one place. Your attorney will negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that an adequate settlement is reached, and if not, he or she will help you prepare for trial.
In many cases, there are multiple avenues for compensation. For example, in the event that a drunk driver caused a car crash and the victim’s car rolled, causing critical injuries as a result, both the drunk driver and the car manufacturer may be able to be held legally responsible for damages. Your lawyer will examine your case thoroughly to exhaust every possible source of financial restitution for damages and will support you as you bring a case forward for each.
