First, what does the term “personal injury” mean?

Second, what does a personal injury attorney do?
A personal injury attorney is hired by the injured person (or family member in a wrongful death case) to protect him or her and fight for his or her rights and just compensation for all losses and damages caused by the at-fault insurance company or party.
Personal injury attorneys also supervise the repair of the damaged vehicle, coordinate the appropriate healthcare team for a quicker, more complete recovery, and track all expenses related to the injury.
Throughout the personal injury case, the attorney provides all communication and negotiation with the at-fault insurance company(ies) or party. Negotiations can lead to mediation, arbitration, and/or a jury trial in a court of law, depending upon the unique details of the case and which legal avenues are necessary to get the best result for the injured person.
Therefore, it is absolutely critical to select the right personal injury attorney with finely-tuned specialized skills and qualifications.
Your attorney of choice must have:
- A winning track record of ongoing jury trials (several every year)
- Excellent communication and follow-through skills
- Smart and tough negotiation techniques
- Insurance savvy to provide a rock-solid offense and defense against the expert money-saving tactics of deep-pocketed insurance companies.
- The expertise and willingness to closely oversee all aspects of recovery, from choosing and monitoring the right healthcare providers at the appropriate time to getting post-accident bills paid.
