Demystifying the Legal Process: What to Expect When Working with a Personal Injury Attorney

When you hire a personal injury attorney to handle your compensation claims following an injury accident or incident in California, they will take care of your legal case for you. You can focus on your treatment and physical recovery while they manage the process of recovering the money you need and deserve. 

Working with a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer could allow you to build a stronger case for more compensation while getting back to your everyday activities sooner. At KJT Law Group, we offer a free legal consultation for accidents. You can learn more about us and how we help injured clients during this complimentary conversation.

What Role Does a Personal Injury Attorney Play in the Legal Process?

The legal process for personal injury in California usually centers around building a strong case to show someone else’s negligence caused the incident, injuries, and losses. With compelling evidence to show the other party acted carelessly or recklessly, the injury settlement process or a civil lawsuit can begin. 

When you work with an attorney to handle navigating this process for you, they will: 

  • Answer your questions as they come up
  • Explain your options for seeking compensation
  • Investigate what happened and gather evidence to support your case
  • Manage all communication with the other party’s insurance carrier
  • Negotiate for a fair settlement with the insurer when appropriate
  • Prepare and file a lawsuit when necessary

The role of a personal injury lawyer is to manage all aspects of your legal case, represent your best interests, and seek justice on your behalf. This occurs when you recover fair compensation, and the at-fault party is held accountable. 

When Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

Personal injury law firms provide legal representation for accidents. If another party acted carelessly or recklessly and caused your accident and injuries, a personal injury attorney can help you seek justice. 

We handle many cases from start to finish. The victim calls us, we discuss their options and answer their questions, and they hire our team to manage their case. We do not charge upfront fees from our clients, so there is no need to pay anything when hiring our attorneys. We work based on contingency, meaning we only get paid from the money recovered when we win. 

When there are lawsuit expectations, such as when an insurance company denies a claim or refuses to make a fair offer, many people will decide it is time to contact an attorney if they have not already. 

How Will a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?

When you decide to work with a personal injury attorney on your injury accident case, you are prioritizing your own health and well-being. Having a legal team that can manage your insurance claim or lawsuit allows you to put your therapies, rehabilitation, and physical and emotional recovery first. 

In addition, a lawyer may be able to build a stronger case and recover more money than you could on your own. This is especially true if you suffered serious injuries and continue to undergo treatment or have long-term injuries or lasting impairments to adjust to. 

Your attorney will know how to navigate the process. They will know how to handle every bump and clear every hurdle. They will investigate what happened, identify and document your recoverable damages, value the case, and seek a fair payout on your behalf. Throughout this process, they will keep you updated and ensure you know what to expect.

What Should I Do If I Want to Work With a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Our team will evaluate your case facts and discuss your next steps. We can advise you on how we might work to handle your case and answer your questions about our services. 

There are deadlines for suing in California. Under CCP § 335.1, you have up to two years to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. CCP § 340.5 offers three years to file a medical malpractice case. 

However, we need to take care of numerous steps before preparing and filing a lawsuit. This is why we encourage victims to contact us quickly after an accident or incident for the best results.
