What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

If you’ve been injured in an accident, you might have been advised to hire a personal injury lawyer. But what does a personal injury lawyer do?

It’s a common question and you might be surprised to know our services include a wide range of legal support – from investigations to negotiations.

Let’s take a look at how we can help you:

Here’s What Personal Injury Lawyers Do:

File Personal Injury Claims

To summarize what a personal injury lawyer does – they file and handle personal injury claims, from start to finish.

Personal injury claims are civil action lawsuits made by injury victims following an accident caused by someone else.

Naturally, most people don’t have the legal expertise to file a lawsuit and handle all the legal matters, so they turn to personal injury attorneys.

Why Might You Want to File a Personal Injury Claim?

If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you’re likely entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering and many, many other damages.

By filing a personal injury claim, you can receive financial compensation from the negligent party’s insurance company.

Personal injury claims do not decide whether a person should go to jail or be criminally convicted, even if they deserve punishment. Injury claims serve the purpose of helping injury victims. However, many lawyers and victims see winning the case and potentially claiming punitive damages as a punishment.

Consultations and Guidance

We offer free consultations to all injury victims. During our consultations, our personal injury lawyers will sit down and listen to:

  • Your personal experience of the accident
  • What you’ve experienced since the accident
  • Your concerns and questions

After our discussions, we’ll be able to advise you on the options available. Your version of events becomes the road map for building our case.

Take Over Communication

One of the next things a personal injury lawyer will do for you is take over communication with insurance companies. We will notify insurers that we now represent you.

Insurance companies take advantage of victims who have little knowledge of the law and are easily manipulated.

Personal injury attorneys will not only protect your rights through this, but also provide you with peace of mind – knowing your phone line won’t be getting harassed and knowing you have an expert on your side.

Investigations and Discovery

A crucial part of preparing any personal injury claim case is gathering evidence that supports your claims.

We use specialists and investigations to analyze your case and reveal the facts. From acquiring CCTV footage and witness statements, to using accident reconstructionist and specialist doctors – we will make a water-tight case.

Tackle Insurance Companies

Insurance companies are not your friend in personal injury claims. Even if your representative comes across as friendly, helpful and caring – be warned. They are for-profit companies that are focused on paying as little as possible.

They use manipulation and pressuring tactics to trick victims into undervalued offers or into saying something that gets the claim denied.

Our personal injury lawyers have the experience to tackle them head-on and are respected by insurers, making negotiations far easier.

We don’t give in to their tricks and will prepare a case that wins you the maximum possible compensation.

Determine Who Is Liable

Some accidents can be extremely complicated as they might have multiple parties involved.

If, for example, you’re in a car that was hit by a bus, but there was a faulty traffic signal, then who is to blame?

Our personal injury attorneys will determine who is likely liable by conducting exhaustive investigations. Then we can know which party to file against.

Having an attorney at this step is very important, especially if you’re filing against a government agency such as a bus service.

Calculate Your Damages

Many injury victims are unaware of the true number and values of damages they have suffered and will continue to suffer.

In the immediate aftermath of an accident, it’s hard to look too far down the road or even understand what damages you have the right to compensate for.

Our personal injury attorneys deal with a variety of cases on a routine basis. We can help identify and accurately estimate the long-term consequences of your injuries. These may include:

Economic Damages

  • Medical Expenses
  • Future Medical Expenses
  • Rehabilitation Costs
  • Treatment Costs
  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings
  • In-Home Care Expenses
  • Transportation Expenses

Non-Economic Damages

  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Mental Health Illnesses
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Permanent Impairment
  • Long-Term Disability
  • Potential Punitive Damages

Prove the Link Between Accident, Injury and Damages

To get the maximum payment possible and the money you deserve, we must show that the accident directly caused your injuries.

Recommend Medical Specialists

By using specialists to diagnose you, provide medical records and evidence to establish a link, we will build a case that insurance companies must respond to.


Once your case is prepared, a personal injury attorney will send the relevant party’s insurer a ‘demand package’. This details the story of your case and can be accepted, rejected or counter-offered.

Negotiations can then take place to agree on a settlement to avoid going to court.

Representation in Court

If the case does go to court, it will be decided upon by a jury and judge.

In these scenarios, expert legal representation is imperative. Using their years of experience, education and reputation, our personal injury attorneys will be able to present your case convincingly.

Allow You to Rest and Recover

The best thing that personal injury lawyers do is – allowing you to rest, adapt and recover.

During the entire process, you can relax knowing an expert is taking care of your case. Additionally, with the money you win you’ll have support to recover financially, mentally and physically.

Whether you need to take time off work, receive medical care, rehabilitation or buy medical equipment – the money you receive and deserve will enable it.
