What is the Role of a Personal Injury Lawyer?

There are many types of personal injury cases. They include car accidents, slip and falls, pedestrian accidents, dog bites, and medical malpractice – just to name a few. A personal injury lawyer can help you, the injured party, collect compensation for injuries that occurred due to someone else’s negligence.

Pasadena personal injury lawyers are trained and licensed civil litigators who represent clients in personal injury cases. 

Assess Your Likelihood of Success

One main responsibilities of a personal injury lawyer is to aid in their client’s pursuit of compensation. These duties follow ethical and professional codes of conduct governed by associations that license lawyers. This allows them to file complaints in court, argue cases, prepare legal documents and offer professional legal advice in personal injury cases.

In the initial consultation, a personal injury attorney will ask questions, look at the evidence, and decide whether the case is viable and worth pursuing. Most of the cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, so each case is evaluated to see if there might be a monetary reward not only to cover attorney fees but to cover your medical costs and associated damages, like pain and suffering.  

Handle Negotiations

Lawyers are professional negotiators; this allows them to negotiate on your behalf from a position of power and knowledge and not from an emotional standpoint. This helps to ensure that the outcome of your case is in your best interest.

Gathering Evidence and Presenting Research

Your Pasadena lawyer has the resources and knowledge to do the necessary legal research applicable to your specific case. Having a well-organized case will allow it to be presented and explained in a way insurance adjusters and even juries can understand. A Pasadena personal injury attorney also has many resources that they can draw from to help support your case, such as doctors and investigators.

Handle Court Filing and Procedural Issues

During the claim process, there are a number of forms and filing deadlines that need to be managed.. This is just one more task that your personal injury lawyer will make sure is completed in the process of handling your claim. They will also be handling notifications and corresponding with all parties involved in the case for you.

Representation Before the Court

Suppose your claim could not be settled and has to be handled in court in the form of a lawsuit; your lawyer will represent you and appear on your behalf.
