There are many examples of how to win your personal injury case, but what about of someone loses their case?
What is usually the cause of someone losing their case?
These are 4 reasons why someone may not be successful in bringing a personal injury claim:
No Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer: Personal injury law is very complex. Rarely is a case straightforward, and to top it off the law can be confusing and is ever changing. Experienced personal injury lawyers know how to deal with these circumstances on a daily basis and not having a lawyer, or not having the right lawyer for your case can hurt your case tremendously.
No Credibility: If you are truly NOT injured from an accident, don’t attempt to seek damages. Don’t over exaggerate an injury to try and prove a point. It just doesn’t work, it taxes the system and it is considered “fraud”.
Lack of Proof: If you are the accident victim and bring a claim, you have the burden of proving every aspect of your claim. Many cases are lost—not because of the facts, but because just not enough evidence is presented to convince a judge or jury of your case.
Without solid evidence (medical Records, a police report, witness testimony, etc…), you will have a hard time proving your case.
The investigation performed by your experienced personal injury lawyer is designed to obtain evidence to help prove your claims. Do not underestimate the importance of this.
No Expert: An expert witness can help your case. They have the ability to explain why or how something happened.
With experience and knowledge, they can give a solid opinion on your situation. Don’t have an expert? You may have a difficult time proving your case.
There is really no substitute for an Experienced personal injury lawyer.
Many lawyers advertise and seek personal injury cases, but are they really experienced personal injury injury lawyers? Have they been declared a “certified specialist” in personal injury by the Arizona State Bar Association?
If not, keep looking. The State Bar certifies lawyers in this area, and when you find one, you can be assured that your case is in the hands of a lawyer who has handles hundreds or thousands of cases to a successful conclusion.
