The laws surrounding personal injury can complicate the claims process. While personal injury lawyers have extensive experience filing and negotiating personal injury settlements, the average person may never be able to successfully acquire compensation on his or her own.
The first step in making a personal injury claim is to hire a personal injury attorney to handle your case. Doing so saves you a lot of stress and money — and increases your likelihood of receiving compensation for your injuries. You should retain the services of a law firm such as Nicholson Phillips to handle your case early on in the process.
Selecting an attorney
When selecting an injury lawyer, you should find out if he or she exclusively handles personal injury claims. Nicholson Phillips focuses its practice on personal injury claims to better provide injured victims with the representation they deserve.
You should also choose an injury law firm that provides references from satisfied clients. While attorney-client privilege prevents attorneys from sharing any such information, many clients of Nicholson Phillips waive this right in order to share their stories.

After retaining the services of a qualified injury law firm, you must collect evidence and details about the incident. The more information you provide, the stronger your claim will be.
A wide variety of information and paperwork can be beneficial to your personal injury claim, such as:
- Communications with insurance companies
- Hospital reports
- Important dates
- Medical bills
- Police reports
- Proof of insurance coverage
- Witness statements or contact information
Providing this material allows our experienced professionals to evaluate your personal injury claim. Damages such as pain and suffering may be harder to prove, and any supporting documents you have from doctors or physical therapists will go a long way.
