While accidents happen every day, you’re in the right place if you believe a personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve should you or a loved one have been negligently injured. 

For almost 30 years, Sokoloff and Weinstein, P.A. has helped people like you recover damages from: 

  • Auto accident injuries 
  • Motorcycle accidents 
  • Bus accidents 
  • Medical malpractice 
  • Workplace injuries 
  • Slip and fall accidents 
  • Wrongful death 

If you have been injured because of someone else’s actions, personal injury law provides the opportunity for you to claim for past and future medical expenses, loss of income, loss of future earning capacity, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. 

Is it Worth Consulting a Personal Injury Attorney? 

Pivotal to your case is demonstrating that a person caused harm either by accident or through their reckless behaviour. In a personal injury lawsuit, you, the plaintiff, have the burden of proving negligence. This involves confirming that the defendant owed you a duty of care. Then you will need to argue that they breached that duty. Furthermore, you must show that the breach of duty caused you harm. Finally, proof of damages because of the harm is needed. 

That all entails a lot of work for you when you are at your lowest. Even if you gather sufficient evidence, insurance companies and big corporations are armed with a bevy of attorneys ready to slash your claim to a pittance. Even worse, they could trip you up with the slightest mistake and have your case thrown out. 

On the flip side, injured parties who have attorney representation receive an average of 3.5 times higher settlements than those without. Moreover, 85% of all insurance companies pay-outs for bodily injury claims are paid to plaintiffs represented by a lawyer. 

Is a Personal Injury Lawsuit Necessary?

Why should you have to suffer when you have become ill or been injured at work, on the road, or because of another’s actions or failure to act? Not only do you need and deserve damages, but by acting against the person, company, or entity responsible for your injury or illness, you are holding them accountable and hopefully also preventing further such occurrences. 

An experienced personal injury attorney can talk you through the legal jargon, advise you on your rights to compensation, and deal with intimidating insurance companies. Let the professionals at a personal injury law firm take care of the legal legwork so that you are free to focus on healing.
