How a Personal Injury Lawyer Protects You

When dealing with an accident that has had a significant effect on you or your loved one's life, it is important to find representation who has your best interests in mind. Not all Wichita personal injury lawyers will go the extra mile for their clients, but Brad Pistotnik has years of experience in the courtroom protecting injury victims.

A few of the specific ways hiring a personal injury attorney can protect you include:

Handling Lawsuits Against Other Parties

Depending on how your injury occurred, there is a good chance a lawsuit will need to be filed to obtain any compensation from the party at fault. A lot of time and work go into these lawsuits to make sure you end up with the settlement you deserve. Many times, this includes reimbursing lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills, and other miscellaneous expenses that tend to pile up when you have been injured.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies are generally responsible for paying out a personal injury claim if it happens on a business' property or on the road in an auto accident. Many times an insurance company will try to pay out as little as they can. Especially if they do not think you have legal counsel helping you out. They may try to claim the injury was actually your fault, or they may just give you a small amount that doesn't cover your expenses. With an established Wichita personal injury lawyer on your side, they may quickly find that you expect fair compensation.

Negotiating Settlements

A quick settlement is often the best way to take care of a personal injury case. Insurance companies and other individuals know that a long court case will lead to big legal bills which will need to be paid regardless of whether or not they win or lose. A negotiated settlement will completely forego a trial, getting you compensated quickly without needing to worry about how long a case will take.

Collecting on Awards

Just because you win an award does not always mean that the other party is going to pay you right away. Some insurance companies may try to stall, making it necessary for your representation to remind them to pay promptly or they could start having the money taken by legal means. Awards against individuals can be even harder to collect. Your attorney should protect you from this by doing everything necessary to make sure that your award is collected in a timely manner.
