How Can A Personal Injury Attorney Help After An Accident?
When you’ve been injured in an accident it’s normal to continually go back and think about what happened and how it could have been prevented. You may even be able to easily identify those responsible and you may be aware of how they failed to prevent the accident which caused you serious harm. But what you may not know is that you have the legal right to seek compensation from the responsible party.
A Delaware personal injury lawyer can determine who is at fault, calculate both past and future anticipated losses, collect evidence, and can create a legal argument to present to a judge and jury. This work allows a client to focus on what is important – healing and planning for the future. Successful outcomes provide the plaintiff with compensation for any losses that they have sustained.

Legal Services Provided To The Victims Of Car Accidents
If you or a loved one have been involved in a car accident, you understand the devastation it can cause. There are many causes of car accidents, including:
- talking on the phone
- drunk driving
- defective auto parts
In each instance, the party who is responsible for causing the crash can be named as the defendant in a car accident lawsuit if serious injuries occur.
A car accident lawsuit may be the only way to recover full compensation, even if insurance is available. This is because all insurance policies have limits and once the limit has been reached, payments will stop. Take the following into consideration: a simple broken bone can cost anywhere from $2,000 – $20,000 to treat – more if complications arise. Those who are already suffering physically due to the negligence of another shouldn’t have to also suffer financially.

Local Lawyers Assisting Smyrna Residents With Slip And Fall Cases
Under premise liability laws, the owners and managers of a property must take every step that would be considered reasonable to ensure that their visitors don’t come to harm. While what is considered reasonable may vary from property to property, the common causes of slip and fall accidents do not. Examples of hazards that could result in a trip and fall accident include:
- loose wiring
- loose carpeting and flooring
- spilled liquids
- broken sidewalks
- snow and ice
Whatever the cause, the result is frequently the same: serious injury. This is why the law allows slip and fall victims to sue those responsible.
If you’ve been recently injured in a slip and fall, contact our law firm as soon as possible.
Smyrna Attorneys Taking On Negligence In Court
According to the law, negligence occurs when one person fails to act reasonably and as a result, puts others in danger. It’s not always obvious that negligence caused an injury to occur – for example, in some auto accident cases, a defect part caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle and crash. This is why you should always have an experienced attorney review your case.
Our lawyers have decades of experience with both settlement negotiation and going to trial. You can rest easy knowing we will do everything in our power to ensure you and your loved ones get justice and compensation.
Should I Contact An Experienced Attorney After An Injury?
There is no requirement for an individual injured or hurt in an accident to contact an attorney to represent them. However, several individuals decide to call an attorney to advocate for their rights following an unfortunate incident for the following two major reasons:
1) they do not have the know-how in the field of injury law; and
2) so they and their family can place all their focus on getting better physically after their accident.
Large Insurance companies regularly try to discourage injury victims from getting an attorney as they are aware of research studies that show that people who hired an attorney reliably successfully obtain significantly more financial awards for their case compared with people who settle their case on their own.
An additional reason people retain an accident lawyer is that there are nearly always -after settlement issues that come with accident litigations that need to be addressed to avoid financial settlement difficulties later on.
How Much Will A Law Firm Cost For A Personal Injury Or Wrongful Death Case In Smyrna?
Virtually all accident or death claims at Schuster Jachetti LLP are handled on a “contingency fee” structure. In a contingent fee plan, our professional service charge is transparently outlined in a transparent contract when we are engaged by a client. Moreover, we only earn a fee when we succeed in obtaining a financial recovery for our clients. In the event there is no recovery, we never charge a fee.
What Main Factors Affect The Final Payout In An Injury Claim?
The final financial award in a personal injury claim is made up of both monetary and non-economic losses. Financial damages include medical invoices, lost earnings, and damage to personal property. Non-economic losses can include physical pain and suffering, deformity, disfigurement, and loss of consortium or quality of living.
There are many additional key factors that affect the value of a dispute such as: the age of the injured person, the amount of insurance protection available, and the contributory fault leading to the accident. While we must accept the realities in each specific case, our firm’s goal is to argue the most favorable case possible to a judge, jury, or insurance provider assessing your claim.
Will My Case Go To Court?
The majority of our injury claims resolve successfully before a legal filing is ever filed in court. At Schuster Jachetti LLP, our attorneys do not expect litigation to settle easily or quickly so we prepare each case as if it will go to trial. From the moment we are engaged in a claim, we gather valuable evidence to establish how an accident materialized and how exactly the behavior of various individuals may have resulted in the accident. This often necessitates summoning police officer statements, witness testimony, photographs of the scene, and medical records and invoices.
How Long Does An Injury Settlement Take?
How long an injury claim takes to resolve is usually a function of the intricacy of the suit and how aggressive an attorney is with settlement dialogue and/or judicial proceedings. A rear-end traffic accident involving a truck with basic medical treatment will probably resolve faster than a med negligence case involving multiple parties.
Schuster Jachetti LLP understands the emotional and monetary burden a claim can have on the victim and their loved ones. Because of this, our attorneys work vigilantly to place every claim with the best chance of a prompt settlement. Our firm is aggressive with our litigation plan of action so every case may be settled as expeditiously and as fairly as feasible. The representative assigned to your lawsuit can detail a more accurate time frame for resolution after considering the factors in play come to light.
