Your case is complex. And when it comes to fighting to get the care and money you deserve there are few who compare to Edward Bernstein & Associates.
Here are just a few of the ways top personal injury attorney fights to help you through an automobile accident.
Obtain the Most and Best Evidence Possible
One of the most critical, time sensitive hurdles you want to clear firstly following a vehicular accident is getting as much good and solid evidence as soon as possible. As time passes, memories fade. Key evidence changes or disappears all together. That’s why you don’t want to wait to contact and hire your attorney. Unleash your attorney as rapidly as possible so they can:
- Identify, interview, and document witnesses
- Capture the reality and essence of the still fresh accident scene, when necessary
- Gather camera footage from nearby homes and businesses
- Secure as much evidence as possible
- Review police reports
The evidence obtained can help to show why the accident happened and who was at fault. This can be vital to your personal injury case.
Handle the Insurance Company
A personal injury attorney helps you with your case by handling the insurance company. The insurance company will contact you and press for a recorded statement. Whether you’re dazed and confused, uncertain about key elements, or unclear about the question, once you answer, it becomes a part of the record. Anything you say to them can be used against you. When you are represented by an attorney, all contact goes through the attorney. This helps ensure you don’t say something wrong while confused, answer a question you don’t understand, or do anything that hurts your case.
Help You with Medical Care
Following a vehicular accident, getting medical care can be tricky. If you cannot afford co-pays or do not have health insurance, you may be unsure how to get the treatment you need. A personal injury attorney in Las Vegas can help you find a doctor to work on a lien basis. Meaning the doctor treats you without requiring you to pay anything for now. When your case settles, they will take their money out of your settlement. This helps you get the care you need, without spending money you don’t have, for an accident that wasn’t your fault.
Work to Negotiate a Settlement
The majority of personal injury cases in Southern Nevada settle before they ever go to trial. There are many benefits associated with settling a case rather than going to trial. Settling is faster and cheaper for both parties. A great lawyer will work with the insurance company and their attorneys to negotiate a settlement. They will present all the facts in to the opposition and show why you are entitled to the amount you’re requesting.
Take Your Case to Trial
The final way a personal injury attorney fights for you after an accident is by taking your case to trial. The other party may not be willing to negotiate or agree on a fair settlement amount. When this happens, going to trial is in your best interest. Once on trial, your attorney will present the evidence they collected and show why the other driver was at fault and why they are responsible for your injuries. They will use your medical reports to show what injuries you sustained and what your past, current and future medical needs are. Your attorney presents the information to a judge or jury, who will have the final say in how much you are awarded for your case.
