Why You Need an Attorney

Personal injury and wrongful death claims arising from car accidents and other preventable tragedies are complex. First and foremost, you have to prove that the accident and your resulting injuries were caused by someone who was acting negligently, carelessly, or unlawfully. Any type of claim seeking compensation must show that someone else was at fault for the injured person’s injuries and losses in order to have merit.

In most personal injury cases, “negligence” is a legal concept that the party seeking damages must prove. A plaintiff must show that another party had a duty to behave or respond a certain way to help keep the plaintiff (and others) safe. If the other party breached that duty, whether willfully or not, and that breach caused the accident that led to the plaintiff’s injuries, the court would consider the claim valid and adjudicate the matter to determine an appropriate amount of compensation, or “damages.”

This is a simple explanation of the process, but in the real world, the process of proving negligence and obtaining damages is almost never that easy. Your claim will require a tremendous amount of documentation and evidence, and you may have no idea where to go to get the information you need to support your claim.

The attorneys at Goings Law Firm, LLC have decades of combined legal experience, and we have successfully handled hundreds of personal injury, wrongful death, and workers’ compensation cases. From our efforts, we have achieved a proven track record of obtaining successful outcomes for our clients, and we are ready to help you, too.

Settlements versus Litigation

personal injury law and justiceMost of the time, the first course of action in trying to obtain compensation for a personal injury claim is to attempt to negotiate a settlement with the other party’s insurance company. Typically, insurance companies offer an initial settlement that is low in the hopes that the injured person will accept the offer and move on.

The insurance company’s initial settlement offer will often be too small to help a victim in any meaningful capacity, and here at Goings Law Firm, LLC, we believe our clients deserve more. We will aggressively negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf to try and get the maximum amount to which you are entitled.

If negotiations break down and we cannot reach a settlement, we will file a lawsuit with the court. As diligent and dedicated trial lawyers, we always prepare each case we handle under the assumption that we may need to go to court to get the compensation our clients deserve. This way, we are fully prepared for any contingencies, and we can submit your case to the courts with the utmost efficiency.

Although litigation can be more time-consuming and costly than settlement negotiations, it is sometimes the only recourse available to get our clients what they need. Our attorneys have extensive trial experience in state and federal courts, and we have received consistent peer recognition as being among the leading trial lawyers in the country. Rest assured that we will do everything we can to handle the matter efficiently, and we will only accept fees for our services if we win your case.
