Many people ask, “what exactly does a personal injury attorney do?” There are actually quite a few ways to answer that question. But any answer stems from this belief: that safety and deterrence are at the very heart of what the Lapidus Law Firm does.
In order for safety and deterrence to be achieved, however, sometimes the threat–or actual reality–of financial losses is necessary to deter this negligent behavior that can cause personal injury to another party. Like it or not, people tend to respond and change behavior if they’re faced with the possibility of severe financial repercussions. This, in turn, should result in a safer society.
What Does a Personal Injury Attorney Do?
We fight for victims whose safety and well-being have been compromised because of someone else’s negligence. If you or a loved one suffered a personal injury because of someone else’s negligence, don’t you think that negligent behavior should be stopped for the sake of everyone’s safety and well-being?
The job of a personal injury lawyer is just that–to fight for the victim’s justice and try to both compensate the victim for his or her pain and suffering as well as penalize the negligent party financially to deter similar future behavior.
How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?
An excellent personal injury lawyer will fight for a victim’s justice. What does that mean? Doing their best and working their hardest to get the victim a fair and reasonable settlement. Victims of negligence often have several hardships to deal with–injury, pain, suffering, lost wages, possible unemployment, medical bills. Why should the victim be forced to be responsible for all of these stresses when they wouldn’t have even been in that situation if not for the irresponsible behavior of someone else?
The Washington, DC personal injury attorneys at the Lapidus Law Firm will fight for what’s right for the victim. We’ll listen compassionately, examine every detail of your case, and do all the communicating with medical providers, other attorneys, and insurance companies on your behalf.
You see, insurance companies don’t have your best interest in mind; they’d prefer you accept a minimal settlement that won’t cover much of anything. The Lapidus Law Firm, with more than 40 years of personal law experience, will handle all of the negotiations with the insurance companies to help get you a fair, reasonable settlement for the hardships you’ve experienced.
