Personal injury attorneys are often referred to as “ambulance chasers” and can be perceived as people who swoop in on injured parties after a traumatic incident before the injured parties have even gotten over the shock of the accident or his or her injuries.
Something that may not be so obvious to outsiders is how complex life can be after an injury is suffered. There will be medical diagnoses, doctor’s visits, the filing of many insurance claims, and the need of the patient to understand his or her rights in the situation.
A personal injury attorney can be there to help guide an injured party through the mazes of information and paperwork, all while helping an injured party make sure he or she is receiving all the help that he or she is entitled to.
What Makes Personal Injury Attorneys Different?
A typical attorney-client relationship requires the client to either pay a retainer up front, or be billed and make regular payments to the attorney, regardless of the outcome of his or her case. With personal injury attorneys, most do not receive any compensation unless the injured party is successful in settlement negotiations or receives a favorable ruling from the court.
