While your individual circumstances after an injury may vary greatly from someone else’s, your decision to hire an attorney is most likely based on a specific need. Nicholson Phillips has collected some of the most prominent reasons clients choose to meet with a Bartow County personal injury attorney and discuss personal injury law in Georgia.
A lawyer can provide an objective legal assessment
You need an individual who does not have a personal stake in your injury to give you an honest assessment of your claim. It is difficult for you to detach yourself from your suffering in order to present the details of your injury to the insurance company or a court of law. Well regarded in the legal community for his skill as an attorney, C. Alan Nicholson provides wise, objective advice and representation to injury victims.
A lawyer has experience handling cases like yours
Personal injury settlements do not always involve the same laws and regulations. A law firm that has worked with injury victims has extensive experience with the various statutes applicable to your case.
Nicholson Phillips has experience handling injury law related to the following types of cases:
- Automobile, motorcycle, truck and bus accidents
- Premises liability and slip and fall accidents
- Injuries from fires and explosions
- Wrongful death
- Product liability
- Medical malpractice
- A lawyer has access to resources
Attorneys have access to legal documents and decisions on injury claims that the average person does not. Many firms have their own libraries where lawyers can do the research necessary to support your claim in court.
Also, an established firm such as Nicholson Phillips has working relationships with accident reconstructionists and other specialists who can provide evidence in your case. These are critical elements in proving the validity of your claim.
A lawyer has experience dealing with insurance companies
Insurance companies have teams of lawyers supporting their cases. They are unlikely to negotiate with a single injury victim who has no experience with personal injury law in Georgia. A Marietta injury attorney shows the insurance company and negligent parties involved that you take your case seriously and are willing to take legal action against them if necessary.
