When you’ve been injured on the job, in the car, at the hospital, or any number of ways, your injuries change the way you live your life. Personal injuries are just that, personal. Getting the right kind of legal help to represent the hardships and lifestyle changes is important. You need a personal injury lawyer that truly understands and represents you.
I believe that it is vitally important for a personal injury lawyer to know the person that he or she is representing. This means thoroughly understanding what that person is going through because of his or her injury. It also means understanding what the caregivers and family members are experiencing due to the injury.
How has the occurrence disrupted and burdened the injured person and their family? How have their activities been limited? Are they able to move around and function properly? How has it affected them at work and what have they lost at leisure? What loss will they suffer financially due to medical bills and lost wages? What kind of person was he or she before the injury occurred? What has he or she become by virtue of the injury?
