Personal injury describes an area of the law that covers physical or psychological harm caused by one party to another. The harm can be the result of such things as an auto accident, a slip and fall, wrongful death, medical malpractice, discrimination and sexual harassment, workplace injuries, and business torts such as breach of contract. Whatever the cause, personal injuries interfere with a person’s life. They cause stress, affect our ability to work, the strain on relationships and impact our finances.
The time following a personal injury is a sensitive time. The injuring party or an insurance company may seek to take advantage of this. That is why it is important to have legal representation. While the other party or an insurance adjuster may seem friendly, they are not looking out for your best interest. Their goal is to deny liability or reduce the amount of compensation they owe you. Anything you say to them may be used to achieve that goal. Having legal representation protects you. Your attorney becomes the point of contact for you, and they will speak to the insurance adjuster or opposing party’s attorney on your behalf.
