Accidents happen. They are an inevitable part of life. If we are lucky, we walk away without any physical/emotional injury, lost wages, or other damages. However, what are we to do in the event that we are actually injured or negatively impacted by an accident? This may be the time to hire a PI lawyer. Personal injury lawyers serve an important role in helping you determine your losses from an accident and recover compensation from the at-fault party.
When you are the victim of an injury caused by another party, you might be left with medical bills, lost wages, and physical or emotional trauma that could take years to fully heal. You may also be wondering if hiring a personal injury attorney is worth the expense or if you should try to handle the insurance settlement on your own.
Hopefully, you will never need the services of a personal injury lawyer. But, if you are somehow injured in an accident due to the negligence of another, the CEO Lawyer can help answer your questions and recover maximum compensation for your injuries and losses. The CEO Lawyer and his team of injury and accident attorneys have extensive experience taking on insurance companies and winning top-dollar settlements for their clients.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Hiring a personal injury lawyer after an accident can benefit you in a number of ways. First, an experienced attorney can help you understand your legal rights and explain the options available to you for recovering compensation for damages and losses after an accident. They can also help to investigate your case, identify potential parties responsible for the accident, gather evidence against the at-fault party, and avoid making mistakes that could later hurt your claim.
Second, a personal injury attorney has experience dealing with insurance companies and the legal system. They will file your insurance claims and handle all of the communication with insurance companies, saving you time and stress when you need to focus on healing and rebuilding your quality of life. A personal injury attorney knows how to prove your claims by collecting the correct documents from medical and legal authorities.
Third, a personal injury attorney knows exactly how much compensation to ask for. They are experienced in negotiating with insurance companies to ensure you receive a fair settlement for your claim.
Finally, if the settlement amount offered by the insurance company doesn’t meet your lawyer’s expectations, they can file a personal injury lawsuit and help retain expert witnesses to prove your case in court.
Types of Personal Injury Cases
Many types of accidents fall under the umbrella of “personal injury.” Some of the most common types of accidents personal injury attorneys litigate are:
Slip, and fall accidents: Otherwise known as premises liability cases, slip and fall accidents amount to more than the victim’s carelessness. Often, a business or property owner has been negligent in maintaining their property as required by law, resulting in an injury. Examples of this type of accident include slips and trips that are the result of a restaurant or grocery store failing to clean up spills properly, a local business failing to repair faulty railing or loose steps in their entryway.
Wrongful Death: Wrongful death lawsuits allow the surviving family members of loved ones who were killed by the negligent acts of another to seek damages. Wrongful death lawsuits can be brought by the deceased person’s surviving spouse, children, or parents. If the deceased individual has no spouse, children, or close living relatives, a suit may be brought by the executor or administrator of their estate. There is more than one different type of wrongful death case. They include:
Sexual Assault: Sexual assault is a crime, but the burden of proof is high in criminal court. For this reason, many victims of sexual assault bring civil cases against the perpetrator, often in addition to criminal charges. Sexual assault victims are eligible to receive remuneration for medical expenses related to the assault, psychological trauma, emotional counseling, or loss of employment or wages as a result of the attack. You may also bring a case against a third party. For example, if you were assaulted at work, you can bring charges against your employer if they did not perform thorough vetting or background checks on their employees. It is also possible to sue the establishment in which the assault took place if proper lighting or failed security measures led to the attack.
Dog or Animal Attacks: If you are bitten or attacked by a dog or dangerous animal that was under the care of another person, you may be able to file a claim against the owner. Generally speaking, a dog owner is liable for the actions of their pet; however, states have varying levels of proof of negligence that must be met in order to win compensation in these types of cases.
Burns or Fire Injuries: Burns are one of the most painful and dangerous injuries a person can suffer. If a person was burned or otherwise injured in a fire due to the negligence of a person or business, they may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. Typically, burn and fire injuries are brought against employers, landlords, and apartment complex owners. Suppose a business did not maintain adequate safety procedures, maintain proper fire safety equipment, or know about faulty electrical wiring that could potentially lead to a fire. In that case, you may be able to file a claim. Furthermore, if you are injured at work due to a chemical burn or other type of burn injury, you should speak to a personal injury attorney to discuss the specifics of your case.
What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?
Personal injury attorneys are experienced in the above-mentioned personal injury cases and others. They have experience dealing with insurance companies and the legal system that the everyday person does not have. They know which questions to ask, what type of evidence to gather, and the process of taking a claim to a lawsuit if a settlement cannot be reached.
Personal injury attorneys will first assess your case in order to determine how to approach your case. They will first determine the extent of your injuries and ask you questions about the negligent circumstances involved. This may involve investigating the scene of an accident, contacting and questioning witnesses, and reviewing the proper documentation of your accident and injuries, such as police reports and medical records. Personal injury attorneys are experienced in working with medical professionals and police and can work with experts in reconstructing the scene of the accident and events that led up to it.
Once all of the evidence has been gathered, personal injury attorneys will review all of the documents, photos, and videos, if available, and consult with the at-fault party’s insurance company or legal representative to determine the next steps in the process. Often, a settlement can be reached with the insurance company or defendant’s lawyer before proceeding to a trial stage. However, if your attorney is unsatisfied with what is offered, they may consider escalating your case to the trial stage. At this point, it is vital to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
What are the Steps in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Every personal injury case is unique, but a relatively standard set of steps are followed after a victim makes contact with a lawyer.
Build Your Case: After you have hired a personal injury attorney, they will begin working right away to start building the facts of your case. Their team will begin reviewing all of the facts and examining all aspects of your particular accident and injury, including the circumstances leading up to your accident. In addition to the details of your accident and injuries, they may examine your employment history and wages, your family circumstances, and any other elements that can support your claim.
Negotiation – The Demand Letter: Your personal injury attorney will send a demand letter that outlines the damages you are seeking in relation to your injury. This letter begins the process of negotiation that will end in your settlement. A well-written demand letter presents the facts of the case in a professional manner. Your attorney will list the specific and documented damages, such as the cost of repair to your property, medical treatment, and lost wages. Then, they will ask for general damages, such as pain and suffering.
The Lawsuit: If the at-fault party rejects your claim or lowballs a settlement offer, your attorney will begin to prepare a lawsuit.
Discovery refers to the period of time when both parties in the lawsuit share their gathered evidence, including documentation of your injuries, medical bills, repair costs, etc. In addition to reviewing your documentation, your attorney will carefully review the evidence provided by the defense in order to find any details that could help support your side of the case.
The Trial: If your case can’t be settled out of court, then your attorney will go to trial with the other party. Your attorney will argue your case in front of a judge or jury and interview witnesses. Keep in mind that while not every case will go to trial, you will want to hire an attorney that isn’t afraid of the courtroom. The CEO Lawyer has a record of securing top-dollar settlements for his clients, and Ali Awad is not afraid of taking insurance companies to court if they try to lowball his clients.
