Getting injured is not part of anybody’s plan. People do not necessarily go about their day waiting for an inevitable accident and injury. Thus, it becomes all the more surprising and frustrating when serious injuries do happen. Aside from a potentially very lengthy recovery, injuries can also result in enormous medical bills.

Injuries We Can Represent You for in Evans, GA
Our personal injury lawyers can represent you for a wide variety of injuries. While the legal process may be somewhat similar – get evidence, prepare a case, take it to trial – for all kinds of injuries, there may be some specific considerations that need to be attended to for one type of case over another. We can represent you if you were injured in a number of different ways.
Car accidents frequently result in injuries. The impact of getting struck by a motor vehicle, even with the benefits of modern safety features, can result in broken bones, bruises, cuts, traumatic brain injuries, and more.
Truck accidents are incredibly destructive and dangerous. Trucks are much, much larger than most privately owned vehicles, so the victim of a truck accident will not be in for a good time when they are struck. Truck accident injuries are often permanently life-altering. Accordingly, you need good legal representation when fighting for what you are owed after a serious truck accident.
Slip and Fall Accidents
A nasty slip and fall can cause more serious injuries than you might expect. For example, if you fall from a great height, bones can break. If you land in an awkward way, you may suffer nerve damage or other potentially permanent injuries.
How Our Lawyers Can Help You in an Evans, GA Personal Injury Legal Claim
When people think of hiring our personal injury attorneys, the first thing that comes to mind is probably going to trial and fighting for financial compensation. Indeed, that is the end of many personal injury cases. However, a trial is only the tip of the legal iceberg for a personal injury lawsuit – or any lawsuit for that matter. Our lawyers can and will do so much more than simply argue at trial. In fact, most of what we do happens before trial. Below, we will go into some of the ways that we can assist you with your personal injury claims:
A lot of our time during the early stages of your personal injury lawsuit will be taken up looking for, compiling, and analyzing evidence for your case. Evidence can come from all sorts of places. We can obtain medical records, insurance statements, police reports, and, if applicable, video footage relevant to your injuries.
We can even obtain evidence from the defense. This is not a nasty trick but a standardized part of the legal process. Attorneys for each side exchange information as part of a process that is called “discovery” so that both sides of a lawsuit are on the same page and there are fewer surprises when the case goes to trial.
Interviewing and Finding Witnesses
Our attorneys can also talk to anyone who witnessed the accident that caused your injuries firsthand. Eyewitness testimony is very powerful in court and can significantly improve your legal arguments.
Long before someone testifies in court, they go through a “deposition,” or a formal interview conducted by lawyers, where answers to questions about the case are given under oath. Again, this process is designed to curb against the unexpected should a case go to trial.
If relevant to your case, our lawyers can also look for qualified expert witnesses. Expert witnesses are, well, experts in certain subject matters that are relevant to proving something about your case. For example, if you were in a car accident and are alleging that it happened because of faulty transmissions, a witness who is an expert in car maintenance and repair can provide valuable support to your argument.
Negotiating Settlement Offers
While it may not seem as flashy as going to trial, another thing we can do for you is work with the other side to negotiate a good settlement agreement for your case. In law, a settlement is an alternative to a trial where both parties come to an agreement about how to deal with the issue, and the case never goes to trial.
Settlements can be beneficial for a number of reasons. First, settlements are generally quicker than lawsuits. This is beneficial both for freeing up the mental space legal proceedings take up in your brain and for reducing legal fees. Second, the terms of settlements can be made private between the parties, unlike a trial where anyone who cares to look can see exactly what happened. Finally, settlements have a guaranteed outcome, where every trial is ultimately in the hands of the jury and what conclusions they come to that day.
Ultimately, the decision of whether to settle or not is one you need to make with the help of our lawyers. We can advise and make considered recommendations, but you always have a right to trial if you want it, and the final decision will be up to you.
