What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
A personal injury attorney represents injured victims and their families and is there for you and your family when you are most in need. Personal injury attorneys represent those injured in a car accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident, construction accident, products liability accident, nursing home negligence, slip and fall, or trip and fall. Victims of an injury caused by the negligence of another may likely experience severe pain and suffering, outstanding medical bills, loss of ability to work, and overall uncertainty of how to proceed forward. The attorneys at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose and Rambo are happy to speak to you or your loved one to see if we can assist in your time of need.
Our job as your personal injury attorney is to pursue claims against those who negligently caused injuries to you or your loved ones.
The law requires people who negligently injure another to pay damages to those they injure. Personal injury lawyers work to ensure that victims of negligence receive the damages they are owed.
These damages can arise in many different forms. When you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may suffer serious injuries requiring extensive medical treatment and requiring you to miss work. This missed time from work can result from disability arising from your injuries and inability to perform your job requirements, and may also arise from the time you are forced to miss work in order to attend a medical appointment or obtain treatment.
As an injured party, you are also entitled to damages for pain and suffering as a result of the negligence and/or recklessness of others. Pain and suffering can take on many different forms and is usually not apparent to the naked eye. You can suffer from the physical injury such as broken bones, brain injuries, flesh wounds, spinal cord injury, or even whiplash. You may also have injuries to your nervous system which can cause shocking pain or numbness throughout various parts of your body. Many times, individuals who have sustained neck or back injuries can feel these injuries radiating down their arms and legs. It is also not uncommon that all of the physical injuries you have suffered in an accident manifest themselves days, weeks, or even sometimes months after the accident. You may also suffer from mental or psychological injuries arising from an accident, leaving you with sleepless nights, fear of driving, anxiety, and depression or PTSD. Each one of these injuries are things that could have been avoided, but for the negligence of the individual that negligently caused them, and you have the right to recover damages against them.
Recovering for these kinds of damages is not the end of our representation. Following an accident, the injured parties are usually left with extensive medical bills and a variety of possible insurance or benefits programs that can or may cover them, and it often can be very confusing.
As your personal injury lawyers, we are there to help you through the process of ensuring the bills are submitted to the right carriers and paid.
We also contact the negligent party and their insurance companies to protect your rights and make sure they know we are representing you. We handle the insurance companies and make sure all your rights are protected.
If the case must be litigated, we are here to walk you through the complicated court system. With our vast experience in personal injury, we are prepared to file the complaint, perform discovery and depositions, hire necessary experts, and take your case to trial if necessary. We will work tirelessly to maximize the strength of your case and to maximize the value. Every step of the way, we will be there to represent and fight for you or your loved one.
If you or a loved one is injured in a car accident, trucking accident, motorcycle accident, construction accident, products liability accident, nursing home negligence, slip and fall, or trip and fall, please contact the Bethlehem Injury Attorneys at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo.
