If you or your loved one has suffered an injury or accident due to the mistake of another party, you are entitled to compensation under personal injury laws. Auto accidents, workplace accidents, dog bite, offshore accidents, medical malpractice etc. fall under the category of personal injury litigation. Though a majority of the cases don’t reach the trial stage, a personal injury attorney in Shriever can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and help you get proper compensation. They won’t hesitate to take your case to court should you be offered a less-than-adequate amount.
Personal injury lawyers specialize in one or more areas of the law such as civil wrongs or injuries. They are experts at building a strong case to help you get properly compensated for your injury.
What is Personal Injury Law?
The principle of personal injury law revolves around the simple fact of ‘liability’ which is determined by the degree of carelessness or negligence of the accused party. Even in cases where you were partly responsible for your injury, you can still get some amount of compensation from the other party as a result of their partial culpability.
What We Can Do For You
Attorneys at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess can handle all stages of your case from filing a lawsuit to the trial stage. It includes investigation, evaluating claims, technical consultation, researching case laws, drafting, and pleading. They interview and depose witnesses and prepare for trial.
In the field of personal injury litigation, you’ll come across many attorneys whose sole motive is to act as settlement agents. They’ll encourage you to settle with insurance companies without genuinely caring for your interest. This is not the case with us. We don’t hesitate to move to the trial stage if the insurance company is adamant about not paying fair compensation.
We have a team of specialized attorneys who handle specific types of cases and possess an in-depth knowledge of state and federal laws. They understand litigation and know how to use their experience to obtain a positive outcome.
Determining Compensation Amount
Determining the compensation amount is not easy in personal injury cases since it depends on various factors. Though you may be tempted to accept whatever is offered first, a seasoned attorney will counsel you to wait for a more appropriate settlement. They will protect you from being pressured to settle on unfair terms. Personal injury lawyers take a lot of pain to obtain the best settlement for their clients.
