What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

A serious accident can happen at any time. Worse, the person responsible for the accident may be unwilling to cover the costs of the accident they caused. They may have left you with serious injuries and suffering, without the funds to cover those losses.

But what does a personal injury lawyer do, and how can they help? At Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, we’re here to guide you through the difficulties of a personal injury claim. If you’ve been hurt and are considering a personal injury claim, reach out for help.

Gather Evidence

The first step in your personal injury claim is to gather evidence. Your personal injury lawyer needs to know who caused the accident, who may be financially liable for your losses, and how the accident happened.

As an injury victim, it’s not always easy to take action to seek evidence for your claim. Your injury lawyer can help you gather this information, from video footage to eyewitnesses.

Calculate Your Claim’s Worth

Once you have evidence against the at-fault party, you also need to know what your claim is worth. If you’re not sure, it’s easy to settle for less and pay out of pocket for some or even all of your losses. Your personal injury lawyer can help you count all your damages, or losses caused by the accident.

Those damages may be economic, or financial. Your lawyer can help you calculate these damages by adding them up and also estimating your future costs.

But your non-economic damages may be more complex. These damages, like emotional trauma and loss of enjoyment of life, may require special calculations your lawyer can provide.

Prepare Your Lawsuit for Court

Once you have all the pieces, it’s time to take your claim to court. But it’s not always easy to file a lawsuit when you’re injured. You may have no experience in the courtroom, which makes it tough to sue.

Your lawyer can prepare you for the courtroom and represent you there. That way, you have a professional on your side who understands the court system and can help prevent mistakes on your claim, such as taking the blame for any part of the accident. Your personal injury lawyer can make it easier to focus on your family and your health, not just your legal situation.
