Why Experience Matters In a Personal Injury Case
Choosing an attorney to represent you in your personal injury case is one of the biggest decisions that you make for your case. The right attorney can help you maximize your claim. The wrong attorney may miss deadlines and fail to take important steps to solidify your claim. Here's why experience makes the difference in personal injury cases:
Experience Helps You Identify Damages
When you suffer a serious injury, you may be surprised at all of the ways that you can collect for your losses. Receiving compensation for just your emergency room visit or a few doctor's bills is only the beginning. You might need physical therapy. This is something for which the responsible party should be liable. You may not be able to work. You should be compensated for these losses as well.
There's a wide range of damages that you can tap when you're hurt including economic and non-economic damages. Experience helps an attorney identify these damages for you. Your attorney's experience can also help you understand your chances for success claiming each different type of damages.
Experience Builds Your Case
An attorney with experience in personal injury law can use their experience to build a strong case. They know how to use expert witnesses to build proof of your injuries. They know how to work with witnesses in order to record their statements and question them effectively in court.
They can use the Maryland Rules of Evidence and available technology in your favor in order to present your story to the jury in a way that's understandable and compelling. This can be the difference in a successful case and walking away without justice.
Experience Is Your Guide
An attorney that's been in the trenches of personal injury law can give you the best guidance as your case progresses. If you receive a settlement offer, they can help you weigh the pros and cons. Knowing when to accept an offer and when to press on can help you receive the maximum recovery.
