Personal Injury Lawyer Brookhaven
After an accident, medical bills can pile up quickly. If an accident victim is also forced to miss work due to their injuries, they may be struggling to make ends meet. At Cambre and Associates, we know how important it is for a client to receive the compensation they deserve for all accident-related expenses.
Personal injury law allows individuals to pursue compensation in the form of a claim or lawsuit if they were injured or sustained property damage due to the careless or negligent actions of another person or entity. An attorney can help an accident victim file the appropriate paperwork, negotiate with insurance companies, and obtain the compensation they deserve for the harm they have suffered.
Our attorneys have extensive experience investigating personal injury accidents and will gather and analyze evidence to build a strong case that will hold the responsible party accountable for the harm they have caused.

Do I Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
You must speak with an attorney as soon as possible after an accident to protect your rights and your claim. Working with a personal injury attorney as early in the claims process as possible will give your case the best chance of success. An attorney must investigate your accident, gather and analyze evidence, and meet with experts who can help them prove liability and accurately value your claim.
In some instances, it can take several months to determine the value of a case since the value of your claim can largely depend on the severity of the injuries sustained. Once your attorney has all of the information needed, they can send a demand letter to the party or parties responsible for injuries. The demand letter details the damages you have incurred and the reason why the other party is responsible for them.
Many personal injury cases involve pursuing damages from the other party’s insurance company. Our attorneys can handle settlement negotiations with insurance companies for you. This process involves a lot of back and forth with insurance adjusters and can be very time-consuming and frustrating. Insurance adjusters will use many tricks and tactics to avoid paying accident victims the settlement amount they deserve. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and will not be intimidated by insurance companies or their defense attorneys.
Personal Injury Lawsuits
Most claims can be resolved through negotiations, without taking the case to court.
However, if an insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement or tries to deny your claim, your attorney can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf. In many cases, an insurance company is more likely to offer a fair settlement once they realize your attorney has filed a lawsuit.
