Meet the Team: Who Will Be Involved in Your Personal Injury Case?
When you have a personal injury claim for a vehicle collision, slip-and-fall or other accident, it takes more than just an attorney to handle your case. In fact, in order to pursue your case efficiently and seek maximum compensation for your injuries, you will need a team of experienced professionals on your side.
While every law firm is different – and while some law firms do truly consist of a single attorney in a “virtual office” – at Levine Law, we take a team approach to maximizing our clients’ financial recoveries. If you engage our firm to represent you, the members of your team will include:
1. Your Attorney
You and your attorney will work together to develop the facts of your case and determine how much you are entitled to recover. Your attorney will negotiate with the insurance companies; and, if necessary, he or she will represent you in court.
2. Our Other Attorneys
The other attorneys at our firm will pitch in to help develop your case strategy, identify potential issues and prepare your case for trial. This puts decades of legal experience on your side.
3. Your Case Manager
Your case manager will be your primary point of contact when you have questions or want an update on the status of your case. Your case manager is there to offer any help you may need, and you will likely get to know him or her very well through the course of your claim.
Paralegals assist our lawyers with legal research and the preparation of legal forms and court filings. The paralegals who are involved in your case will also be able to provide you with information when you have questions.
5. An Investigator
To prove your claim, we need evidence. To collect evidence, we need an investigator. The investigator will visit the scene of the accident and track down other leads to make sure your attorney has everything he or she needs to win your case.
6. A Physician (or Multiple Physicians)
Your medical records will be key evidence in your personal injury case as well. Depending on the nature and extent of your injuries, we may need you to see multiple physicians who are experts in diagnosing and treating traumatic accident-related injuries.
7. Fact and Expert Witnesses
Along with the evidence obtained by our investigator and the records prepared by your physicians, we may call upon fact and expert witnesses to help prove your claim as well. Fact witnesses are individuals who saw the accident who are familiar with how your injuries have impacted your life (such as family members and co-workers), while expert witnesses are generally scientists and doctors who can help explain how and why you were injured.
8. Other Professional Staff
Along with all of these individuals, during your case you may also get to know various other staff members who all have designated roles in helping our clients secure financial recoveries.
