How an Attorney Can Help
You may be able to recover compensation after an injury if you can prove that a defendant was negligent, or failed to live up to some legal obligation to which you were entitled. Compensation may be obtained through a couple of different procedures:
- Personal injury lawsuit. A jury will decide if the defendant was negligent, and will determine an award of damages if they believe the defendant was to blame.
- Negotiated settlement. A personal injury attorney can negotiate with the insurance company of the policyholder who is responsible for your injuries. In such instances, the insurer may pay a certain amount of money if you give up the right to take the policyholder to court.
Whether you go to court or pursue a settlement, the process of trying to obtain compensation can be complicated. There are strict court rules regarding what you must prove and how evidence must be presented, and there are deadlines by which you must file your case. If you deal with the insurance company, you can expect to feel pressured to agree to a settlement deal, even if it is not necessarily full compensation for damages.
The job of a personal injury attorney is to help you navigate through the process. Howell & Christmas has dealt with many insurance companies for clients and we know how insurers work. Because we have represented many injured clients throughout Greenville, we know local court rules and are experienced litigators prepared to help you do everything possible to put together a strong case.
