Every year, thousands of cases are filed in trial courts all over the United States for a number of reasons. In fact, in 2005 alone, it is estimated that there were 26,950 tort trials, which includes personal injury, contract, and real property trials in state courts nationwide. This equals out to 539 trials per state. These figures are not surprising, considering that most cases are settled outside of court.

However, the cases that did go to trial demonstrate the value of an experienced personal injury lawyer. Of the nearly 27,000 trials in 2005, 68% (18,404) were decided by juries, and 54% of the jury trials held ended in favor of the plaintiff, with 6.3% (1,159) ending in an award to the plaintiff of one million dollars or more in damages. However, none of these trials would be possible without aggressive legal representation.

Our team of seasoned attorneys will analyze your legal case and determine the best course of action to get you on the road to physical and financial recovery.

Common Personal Injuries in Personal Injury Cases

As you may be aware, personal injury accidents come in many forms, and often, the injuries an accident victim sustains as a result of a personal injury accident can be just as unique as the accident itself. However, there are certain types of injuries that personal injury accident victims tend to sustain more than others such as:

  • Bulging or Herniated Discs in the Spine: This injury is commonly sustained in car accidents, bus accidents, truck accidents, slip and fall accidents, etc. and it is normally caused by trauma to the spine that results in a spinal disc or discs becoming irritated, inflamed, or rupturing.
  • Concussions: This injury is also known as a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), and it is caused by a bump or blow to the skull that interrupts normal brain functioning. Although falls are the leading cause of concussions in the U.S., individuals involved in any type of motor vehicular accident or that are a victim of elderly abuse can sustain this type of injury as well.
  • Torn Muscles: Sustaining a torn muscle injury can take many forms. For example, whiplash is a type of torn muscle injury that is commonly sustained by car accident victims. The most common cause of whiplash is an impact that causes a sudden jolt to the neck causing the muscle fibers in the neck to tear. You can sustain a torn muscle on almost any part of your body, and it is typically caused by a sudden impact that causes a part of your body to move in an unnatural manner.

Discover Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

Unbeknownst to most people, personal injury lawyers provide their clients with multiple services throughout the course of every case a personal injury attorney accepts. The main reason most people are unaware of all of the services their personal injury attorney provides them with stems from a misunderstanding of what a personal injury lawyer does in each case.

For starters, lawyers are tasked with being subject matter experts in their field. This point is demonstrated by the fact that every personal injury attorney at Cambre and Associates has earned a Juris doctor degree, which simply means a doctorate of law degree, but law school only gives a lawyer some of the tools they need to practice law in the real world.

Every case that a personal injury attorney accepts requires the lawyer to, among other things, perform the following services for their client:

  • Gather evidence and ensure that the evidence gathered is admissible: Not all evidence is admissible in a court of law, and the rules concerning what evidence is admissible and how that evidence can be submitted are often dictated by a combination of statutes, and binding legal precedent that articulates the process a personal injury attorney and plaintiff must go through in order to submit evidence
  • Interpret and apply the law: This service has two parts. On the one hand, a personal injury lawyer must interpret statutes, which is the law as it is written by the state or federal legislature. However, Georgia and the U.S. have a judicial system that recognizes legal precedent, which is a higher court’s interpretation and application of the law in certain cases. Binding president can affect how a law is applied in a certain situation or throughout the entire state or country, and thus, researching state and federal case law on a particular legal subject is a critical service that a personal injury attorney performs for their client.
  • Cross examining witnesses: To successfully execute a personal injury case in court, a personal injury lawyer must prove certain elements in court in order to prevail. The elements of proof for each type of personal injury claim can vary, but one of the primary ways an attorney gathers evidence is through sworn testimony. A personal injury lawyer will often take the testimony of witnesses either at trial or through depositions, but in both instances, the lawyer must ask the witness questions in a manner that can both provide the attorney with information and that serves to accomplish the lawyer’s ultimate goal which is to prove the necessary elements needed for their client to prevail in court.

This list is not all inclusive, but rather, it articulates some of the more complex aspects of practicing personal injury law. Being able to perform all of the legal tasks needed to bring a personal injury claim to a successful conclusion takes years of education, practice, and experience that cannot be learned in a small amount of time by someone without legal training. As such, although most people may be unaware of all of the services a personal injury attorney performs for their clients, they do recognize that they need to have their cases handled by legal experts, and thus, they employ the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer.
