Benefits of Working with an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney
- October 15, 2021
Personal injury lawsuits come in many varieties, from car accidents to slip-and-fall incidents and everything in between. But no matter the details of your personal injury claim, there is one thing that all such cases have in common—you can benefit from working with an experienced personal injury attorney. Keep reading to find out how we can help you with your case.
Understanding Your Case’s Viability
While you may feel you’re justified in pursuing compensation for your personal injury, it’s important to understand whether or not your case is strong enough to stand up in a court of law. Our personal injury attorneys have been litigating cases in court for decades, and we can help you to determine whether or not taking the matter to court will be worth the time and effort it will require. If you don’t have sufficient evidence to support your case, you could simply cause yourself additional stress and increased expenses by pursuing it in court.
While we will always fight for our clients, we also seek to provide honest, straightforward advice. We’ll help you to understand your case’s viability, and advise you regarding whether you should take the matter to court, or accept a settlement from the other party.
Avoid Making Simple Mistakes
You may think that complex negotiations and evidence gathering are the areas where an attorney will help the most. However, there are also much smaller, but equally important aspects of personal injury law that we can help with. Filing a personal injury claim requires the plaintiff to strictly follow procedural details and stick to deadlines for each step along the way. Misfiling or missing a deadline can have your case tossed out of court before you even have a chance to present it to a judge.
Stacey Selem Antonucci has been practicing in personal injury litigation for nearly 30 years, and Dennis Baptista has even spent 12 years as a presiding judge in multiple municipal courts. The details of filing and pursuing a personal injury case are second nature to our attorneys. We understand what needs to be done and when it needs to be done, so you won’t have your case dismissed for simple errors.
Pursue the Full Scope of Damages You’re Owed
A great deal of personal injury cases are settled outside of court, when the victim accepts a settlement from the other party or their insurance carrier. But more often than not, plaintiffs acting on their own behalf accept a much smaller sum than what they’re owed. This is usually due to the fact that most people aren’t aware of the full scope of damages that they are entitled to receive.
While you might fight to ensure that you receive repayment for property damage and medical bills, far fewer individuals think about the other costs associated with their injury. These can include:
- Long-term treatments, such as physical therapy
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Prescription costs for pain management and recovery
- Costs of living with a disability
We recognize that the costs you incur when you’re injured aren’t always measurable through medical bills and receipts for repairs; but that doesn’t make you any less entitled to compensation. We’ve been in the courtroom countless times, fighting for our clients to receive payment for both monetary and non-monetary losses, and we have done so with great success.
More than that, we’ve been where you’re at right now. Our lead attorney, Stacey, suffered injuries due to the actions of a drunk driver, so we know firsthand just how much your life can change as the result of your injuries. We’ll fight to get you the compensation you truly deserve, whether it’s a higher settlement outside of court, or damages awarded by a judge.
Settle the Case Faster
In addition to receiving a higher payout for your injuries, a personal injury attorney can also help you to settle your case faster. If you truly want to pursue the full scope of damages that you’re owed, that can take a great deal of time. Stacey worked for years as trial counsel for various insurance companies, gaining valuable insider knowledge regarding insurance carriers’ tactics and strategies for delaying cases like yours. We know how to press insurance providers to move forward and offer a fair settlement amount in a shorter timeframe, saving you time and stress.
