What Is a Personal Injury Case?
“Personal injury” is an area of civil law meant to protect the rights of people injured by the actions of others. When someone engages in reckless, negligent, or intentional behavior, and that behavior causes an accident, that person can ultimately be held responsible. In some cases, the at-fault party’s insurer may step in and try to settle a claim. In other cases, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can carefully review a claim and determine which legal pathway offers the best chance at a favorable outcome.
Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney
Often, accident victims will wait to contact an attorney because they are approached by an insurer offering a quick payday. You may feel weighed down by the financial burden the accident has placed on your shoulders. Medical bills, repair costs, and lost wages can make you feel like talking to the insurer is the best way to get the money you need. It isn’t. Some insurers count on you being in a vulnerable position. They want you to settle quickly because it generally means they can offer you less than what your claim is worth.
Hiring a personal injury attorney doesn’t necessarily mean you are in for a lengthy legal battle in court. It means you have an advocate on your side who can protect your rights and help you make decisions that will be in your best interest. An attorney can help you file an insurance claim and negotiate on your behalf for the money you deserve. If negotiations are not conducted in good faith, an attorney can also prepare a lawsuit seeking full and fair compensation.
Before you talk to anyone, talk to an experienced personal injury attorney about your situation. An attorney can help you understand all your options before guiding you down the path that’s right for you.

What Should You Do After an Accident?
In the aftermath of an accident, you may be shell-shocked. While you may be frightened about what comes next, we have compiled a few tips on what you can do to protect yourself.
- Seek medical treatment – Always seek medical treatment for your injuries as soon as possible. It is also crucial that you continue with your follow-up care and adhere to your doctor’s orders.
- Report the accident – If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, call the authorities. They can control the scene and complete a police report about the accident. This report may be helpful later in a personal injury claim. If you’re hurt on someone else’s property or by an animal, notify management or the property owner and file an incident report.
- Document the scene – Take photographs of the accident and collect the contact information of everyone involved. If possible, gather the contact information of any witnesses who saw what happened.
- Consult an attorney – Talk to an attorney as soon as possible.
- Be social media savvy – Do not talk about the accident on social media. Your words could be used against you by an insurer or another attorney.
