How can an attorney help me recover fair compensation?

By Andrus Hood & Wagstaff  Mar. 15, 2011 4:07p

If you are dealing with an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit, recovering fair financial compensation is of the utmost importance. An attorney can help you with this.

The "compensation" awarded in a personal injury claim is an amount of money that is meant to compensate the victim for the injuries he or she has experienced. It may cover both economic and non-economic damages, including medical expenses, lost earnings, future medical bills, loss of future earnings, emotional trauma, pain and suffering and possibly more. It can help a victim rebuild his or her life.

Unfortunately, it may be difficult to receive a fair amount of compensation from the insurance company or other party handling an injury claim. An attorney can put pressure on these parties to seek the fair treatment of your claim and can take your case to civil court if necessary to seek a jury award in your favor. This can be accomplished by:

  • Thoroughly investigating every aspect of the accident or other incident that led to your injuries in order to prove that the other party should be held legally responsible
  • Working with expert witnesses in forensics, medicine, psychology, accident reconstruction, economics and private investigation to complete this investigation and to determine and then prove the full value of your claim
  • Representing your interests in negotiations with the other party to seek a fair out-of-court settlement
  • Taking your case to civil court in the event that the other party acts in bad faith in handling your claim

While you focus your energy on recovering and spending time with loved ones, your lawyer at Andrus Hood & Wagstaff will be working diligently to properly present your case and seek the money that you need - and deserve.
