Often, personal injury victims want to get back on their feet quickly and put their case behind them. Unfortunately, that can mean that some victims settle too early with the insurance company after an accident, for amounts that are significantly lower than what their case is really worth. A personal injury attorney will be able to evaluate an accident and the injuries associated with it and won’t be intimidated to take the case as far as it warrants.

WHAT IS A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY?
A personal injury is exactly what the name implies, an injury sustained by an individual. Usually, that injury is physical, but it can also be mental or emotional and can even include injuries to property. In a personal injury case, the injury would have been caused by someone other than the victim. This causation legally obligates the negligent or faulty party to pay for losses associated with the injury. In order to establish causation or fault, a personal injury attorney will provide evidence and reasoning to prove that:
The accused had a duty to the victim
The accused violated or did not fulfill that duty
The victim was injured in some way
The injury was caused by the breach of the accused’s duty
Gathering the necessary evidence and information to prove these points is a time-consuming and complex task. A personal injury attorney is familiar with the legal requirements to build such a claim.
