Frequently Asked Questions - Personal Injury
I want to file a personal injury claim. What should I do?
If you are thinking about filing a personal injury claim, the first thing
you should do is to write down everything related to your accident and/or
injury. If you were treated by a physician, you should compile your medical
records. Once you have gathered this information, you should meet with
an experienced Palm Springs personal injury lawyer, like the lawyers at
Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. The legal team at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C.
will review your case and then advise you of your legal options. If they
feel you should move forward with a personal injury claim, they will help
you initiate the legal process.
I have been injured by another person. Can I file a lawsuit?
It depends. In order to file a personal injury lawsuit against another
person, you will have to prove that the person acted negligently or recklessly.
You will also have to prove that because the person was negligent, you
sustained your injuries. This is never easy to accomplish on your own,
which is why you will find it most advantageous to work with a personal
injury law firm, such as Cohn & Swartzon, P.C.
Why do I need a personal injury lawyer instead of a general lawyer?
Personal injury is a very complex and comprehensive area of law. Most
lawyers who have a general practice do not have substantial case experience
or training in this unique niche of law, which means they may not be able
to produce exceptional results. Instead of taking a chance, people should
always work with lawyers who have years of experience in personal injury
law when filing a claim. This will not only expedite the process, but
ensure that people are provided with representation from lawyers who understand
personal injury laws and are able to retain fair verdicts and settlements.
Can I get compensation for my injuries?
If your case is successful, you may be awarded a settlement or verdict
which will allow you to obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost
wages, injuries, property damage and pain and suffering. However, case
results will vary person-to-person.
