What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?

October 27, 2021

Personal injury attorneys practice tort law, which involves intentional and negligent hurtful acts. They help provide legal advice and representation to persons who have been hurt in accidents.

A San Diego personal injury lawyer aims at helping you restore your everyday life after an accident. So if you need help with your personal injury case, consider consulting with the leading San Diego Personal Injury Attorney, Anthony Laureti.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

At Laureti & Associates, we handle a wide range of personal injury cases, including:

If you or a loved one has sustained injuries from any of these types of accidents, you may be entitled to pursue compensation. Based on your situation and the severity of your injuries, you may receive compensation for medical expenses, emotional distress, loss of companionship, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and loss of earning capacity.

What Is The Role Of A Personal Injury Attorney?

A personal injury lawyer plays a significant role in your case. However, their responsibility depends on their specialty and the type of case at hand. Here is how personal injury attorneys from Laureti & Associates can help:

Investigate Your Accident

The first and most important thing we do is gather as much information as possible about your accident to support your case. This involves collecting witness testimony, accident reports, police reports, photos of the accident, surveillance footage, medical records, and other facts that would help us establish liability for the accident.

Explain Your Rights To Financial Compensation

A lot of lawyers will tell you that you have a right to compensation for your injuries, but what does that actually mean? At Laureti & Associates, we will help you understand how a personal injury lawsuit can help you assert your rights against those responsible for your injuries so that you get the compensation you need to pay your medical bills and support yourself and your family. 

Negotiate with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind. While it may be tempting to accept an initial settlement offer, your case could be worth significantly more than what is initially offered. In many cases, initial settlement offers do not take into account ongoing medical expenses, lost wages, and other economic impacts that an accident may have. 

At Laureti & Associates, our San Diego personal injury attorneys will negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf. They may try to diminish the value of your claim. We know what it takes to build the strongest case possible to maximize the compensation due to you.

Advocate For You In Court

If the insurance company declines your claim or fail to negotiate an acceptable settlement, you can take them to court. There are other personal injury law firms that look for quick and easy settlements and avoid taking cases to court. At Laureti & Associates, we prepare every case as if it were going to trial. Located within steps of the courthouse, we are not afraid to take your case to court and hold those responsible for your accident accountable.
