Tips for choosing a personal injury attorney

Have you ever worked with a a personal injury lawyer? A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal services to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence of another person, company, government agency or any entity. Examples of common personal injury claims include injuries from slip and fall accidents, traffic collisions, defective products, workplace injuries and professional malpractice.
If you are injured as the result of negligence, then please seek the advice of a personal injury attorney. It is a very easy process and will save you time and especially money. You certainly do not want to be stuck with a mountain of medical bills, as a result of your injury.

The first thing to do is TAKE PICTURES, after you can safely do so. You can have a trusted loved one to take them for you. Seek the recommendations of friends to find the best attorney. Or, you can do a Google search to find an attorney in your area.

Make that phone call for a consultation. The folks at KFB Law can help. Most will offer a free consultation. If they do happen to charge a fee, it is minimal. Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means they don't get paid until you do. Their fee is "contingent" on getting paid. To me, this means they work harder to get your case settled because they will be paid out of your settlement funds.

I had a case years ago with my daughter, who was 13 at the time of the accident. I tried to negotiate with the insurance company but they were refusing to do anything. My daughter was ran over by a car, her forehead attached to a bolt under the car and she was drug down the road. Had I not sought the advice of an attorney, I would have been responsible for all her medical bills and my time lost off work. She had a broken arm, a broken collar bone and a deep cut all the way across her forehead, many contusions, cuts and scratches. I was in shock when I arrived at the hospital. My child could have died and the insurance company of the driver did not care. She ended up having to have emergency plastic surgery on the cut on her forehead.

When the insurance company refused to talk to me or agree to pay anything, I went and talked to an attorney. I am so happy that I did. He put me at ease and took care of everything from getting the medical bills paid, her medications, therapies, EVERYTHING and also was able to get a large settlement beyond all the bills for her pain and suffering. He also arranged for all the proper documents with the courts since she was a minor receiving these types of settlement from a personal injury.

I would have never been able to do it with the help and advice of my personal injury attorney. It helped put my mind at ease knowing this was being taking care of and I could concentrate on on getting my daughter to her appointments and therapies.
