Injured? What Happens Next?
If you are injured in an accident, one of the most important issues to handle early is ensuring that you have legal representation from a high quality, aggressive lawyer. At Mani Ellis & Layne PLLC, we are available to assist you and to help you to pursue the compensation you deserve. We are recognized for our accomplishments in personal injury cases and our aggressive legal team fights hard for each and every client.
Get Legal Representation Early in the Process
It is important that you have legal representation protecting you as early as possible in an accident. If an insurance adjuster or other individual wants to interview you, gain access to your medical records, or have discussions with you or your family about your case, you must refer them to your attorney. The insurance company does not represent you. They represent the negligent party; they want to pay you as little as possible. You must have an advocate that will fight for you and to maximize your compensation. Our sole commitment is to you and your case; we know how important it is that you are fully compensated for the injuries and other damages in your case.
Having a member of our team on your side could also help ensure that your case is proven to be legitimate. In order to hold the guilty party responsible for what they have done, it will need to be established that they acted negligently. There are certain elements which must be present in order to prove negligence. First, the individual must have owed the victim of a duty of care. When a driver gets behind the wheel, they owe those around them a duty of care. When a person is injured on another's property, they are owed a duty of care by the property owner. Following this, it must be shown that the guilty party failed to uphold their legal duty towards the victim and this resulted in an accident or injury to the victim. Once the connection between the person's negligence and the victim's injury has been established, they will have a strong personal injury case.
