What Can Personal Injury Lawyers Do?

A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who represents people who have been harmed in accidents. They seek restitution for those who have been injured in accidents.

Investigating Claims  

Personal injury lawyers in North Bay usually operate on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if they get a settlement or a jury verdict. As a result, they take considerable care in screening potential clients and analyzing the case’s merits since they finance it. 

Gathering Evidence

The plaintiff’s claim may be supported by evidence gathered by a personal injury lawyer. This might entail obtaining any police or incident reports. They may be able to hunt down witnesses and get their statements. Evidence may be utilized to determine who was at fault for the accident and the degree of the plaintiff’s losses.

Negotiating and Sending Demand Letters to the Insurance Companies

Negotiating with insurance carriers is nothing new to personal injury lawyers. First, they may look into a policy’s specifics and estimate the maximum amount of compensation that may be available depending on the details of the case. Then, after adequately researching the claim, they may issue a demand letter to the insurance company. The accident’s circumstances are stated in this demand letter, and a specific sum of damages for the injuries caused by the defendant is demanded.

North Bay Personal Injury Lawyer FAQs

Do I have to contact a personal injury lawyer even if I don't feel hurt at the scene of the accident?

It’s always advisable to contact an lawyer even if you don’t feel hurt at the scene of the accident, as many injuries can take days or weeks to become apparent. By that time, the other party may claim that your injury case is weak and unsupported. However, you should never downplay your injuries; a lawyer will be able to give you the right advice on how to proceed and seek medical attention.

What should I do if an insurance adjuster calls me?

Maintain a calm and courteous demeanor

Even if you’re still furious about the accident and your injuries, venting your frustrations on the insurance adjuster won’t help you obtain a reasonable personal injury settlement.

Find out who you are dealing with

Obtain the name, address, and phone number of the person you’re speaking with before you say anything, as well as the name of the insurance company they work for and the person or business firm they represent.

Only provide minimal personal information

You just need to provide your full name, address, and phone number to the insurance adjuster. You can also tell them what you do for a living and where you work. However, you don’t need to explain or disclose anything else about your job, timetable, or money at that moment.

Give no information about the accident

Refuse to give any in-depth details (other than the most basic): where, when, the sort of accident, the cars involved if it was a traffic accident, and the identities of any witnesses. Instead, declare that your accident investigation is still ongoing and that you will disclose the details “at the right time.”

Give no information about your injuries

An insurance adjuster, understandably, will want to know the type and degree of your injuries. Don’t go into too much detail just then. You could forget something or you might find an injury later, or your damage might be worse than you imagined.

Make a list

Write down all of the information you got over the phone, as well as any information you supplied to the person with whom you spoke, as quickly as possible.

Resist the need to make a quick decision

During the initial one or two phone conversations, insurance adjusters may propose a settlement. Quick settlements save the insurance company time and money. But, more importantly, they persuade you to accept a low-ball offer before fully comprehending your injuries and the value of your injury claim.

Set conversational limits

Make it plain from the start that you won’t be talking much on the phone with an insurance adjuster. You should not only offer minimal information in this first phone conversation, as described above, but you should also create clear boundaries for any further phone contact.

Refuse to make statements that will be recorded

Many claims adjusters will pressure you to give a tape-recorded statement or ask if they can record your phone call in the hopes of protecting you afterwards. Don’t consent to your communication being recorded. You’re under no legal requirement to be recorded, and an adjuster who records you without your permission breaks the law.

How do I pay for a lawyer for my personal injury case?

Unlike many other types of legal counsel, personal injury lawsuits are typically accepted on a “contingency basis.” This means that a legal firm commits to a portion of the money collected in a case on behalf of the injured individual as a personal injury fee. The law firm does not get any fees if there’s no recovery.
