Personal injury is a broad area of law that involves people who have been physically or emotionally injured as a result of someone’s fault. Although personal injury can encompass any type of situation, the most common types of personal injury matters are car accidents, slip and falls, trip and falls, assaults, dog bites, defective products, and medical malpractice.
Following an accident, victims often receive phone calls and letters from insurance companies, police, doctors’ offices, and lawyers requesting information and asking for statements and paperwork. What to do and what to say (or not) can be very confusing and stressful.
The law entitles you to several types of compensation, depending on the facts of your case, however, there are several crucial steps that you must take early on to be fairly compensated following an accident. The Ramirez Legal Group can help.

Do I Need
A Personal Injury Lawyer?
In most cases, the answer is a resounding YES. If you have been injured due to someone else’s fault, hiring an experienced attorney can maximize your compensation by thousands, and in some cases, millions of dollars.
Personal injury cases may seem straightforward at first – you have been injured due to someone else’s fault and the at-fault party’s insurance company will compensate you for your losses, including medical bills, right? WRONG. Insurance companies are sophisticated multi-million-dollar Goliaths that will take advantage of you, David, if you let them.
This is because insurance companies’ bottom line is their financial success – it is a business like any other. Their goal is to find excuses to pay you nothing or as little as possible by blaming YOU for the incident, telling you that the incident did not cause the nature or extent of your injuries, or by telling you that your medical bills or treatment were not reasonable or necessary. Also, there are many pitfalls to avoid when making a personal injury claim and one wrong move, like blowing deadlines called statutes of limitations, can cost you thousands, sometimes millions of dollars.
This is why it is crucial to hire an experienced personal injury attorney no matter how simple or straightforward your situation may seem.
The law entitles you to several types of compensation, depending on the facts of your case. An experienced attorney can make sure that the correct things are done throughout the course of your claim to maximize your compensation. This includes strategic actions that must be taken early on.
