3 Parts of a Tucson, AZ Personal Injury Case
When you are recovering from a severe injury, the thought of dealing with attorneys on top of everything else can seem unbearable; however, if you were injured through no fault of your own, working with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney may be your best chance to obtain much-needed compensation.
At Karnas Law Firm, our group of Tucson personal injury lawyers is committed to helping clients who are injured hold the parties responsible accountable for their actions. If you are ready to hand your case over to one of our lawyers, you can expect your case to progress through the following course before we can declare it has been resolved.
The Free Consultation
A personal injury case at Karnas Law Firm begins with a free consultation. This consultation allows you to discuss the specifics of your case with an accomplished attorney. During this meeting, you will likely discuss:
- Whether a person’s negligence directly caused your accident
- What parties can be held accountable for their negligence
- What parties can compensate you for your injuries
- The extent and severity of your injuries
- Medical bills resulting from the accident
- Legal options for compensation
The Independent Investigation
A person who secures legal counsel for a personal injury case should work with an attorney who can conduct a full investigation of the events leading to your claim. Your attorney should be able to review police reports, the accident scene, photographs of the accidents and resulting injuries, witness testimony, medical records and expenses, your employment history and earning capacity, and more. If a car crash caused your injuries, your attorney should be able to collaborate with accident reconstruction experts to understand who was at fault.
One of the top reasons for hiring a Tucson personal injury lawyer to represent your case is that experienced personal injury lawyers have extensive practice negotiating with the parties responsible for paying damage awards. Your attorney will demand fair compensation in the form of a settlement. He will file a demand letter detailing your case which will include liability and damages that they must pay. These damages may include medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and more.
Typically, the opposing party — usually an insurance company — will review the demand letter and reject it or counter it with a settlement offer lower than what your attorney demanded. It is our firm’s duty to continue negotiations until we receive a fair settlement on your behalf.
In some cases, attorneys are not successful in swaying the responsible parties to fulfill your settlement. That’s why our team of personal injury lawyers in Tucson is always prepared to take your case to court.
