How We Do Things Differently

Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

When you are involved in an accident due to someone else's negligence, you have rights to seek compensation for justice. The process of filing a personal injury claim can be overwhelming and complicated if you are unfamiliar with insurance demands, legal guidelines, and settlement demands. Additionally, the amount of paperwork and fees will start to pile up when you begin this process, and keeping track of all the details is often the last thing that you have time for when you are recovering from an injury.

Hiring a personal injury attorney in Anchorage is the best decision when you are seeking compensation due to negligence. Our attorneys at Johnson, Beard & Trueb, P.C. have the experience that you need to receive maximum compensation for your claim. We can help you understand when to decide between settlements or trials, negotiations, filing lawsuits, and how to prove fault in an injury case. Our dedication to your success and justice for your injuries will give you peace of mind while you navigate all of the options involved in this difficult time. Contact our team fora consultation to begin the process of seeking compensation for your injuries!

How to Prove Negligence

The most critical factor to establish in an injury case is negligence. It is the basis for all personal injury claims and lawsuits. There are some cases in which the negligence is clear, and is not disputed, but surprisingly, this can be a little rare. It is more likely to run into a situation in which an insurance company, or the lawyer representing the company, disputes the fact of negligence, or tries to make a case that the injured person (or another party) held some of the responsibility in the case.

In any case in which there is a question about who was negligent, and to what degree, it is imperative that you are represented legal counsel who has a record of success at trial, particularly in proving negligence, and secondarily, on achieving high value awards. You cannot get any settlement or verdict without making a strong case to prove negligence first.

The manner by which negligence is proven will vary from case to case. A full investigation into the facts must take place as early as possible after the injury, before critical evidence is lost or destroyed. Interviews with eyewitnesses, company employees, law enforcement officers, medical professionals, and many others could be necessary. In an auto or vehicle accident case, it could be necessary to get an independent accident investigator to evaluate each vehicle, and other information, including the actual scene of the accident, or photographs if this is all that is available.

In cases of corporate negligence, it may be necessary to subpoena emails and other documents to prove that there was knowledge of the dangers that led to the injury, accident or death.

Every case is unique with regard to establishing negligence. Call upon Johnson Beard & Trueb, PC for assistance in serious injury cases in Alaska.

Damages You Can Recover

While the amount of compensation you will be able to recover in your personal injury case can’t be predicted, since every case is different, the types of compensation available to injury victims remain the same in every case. These types of compensation are also called damages. There are three types of damages, economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. In some cases, a claimant will be able to pursue compensation for all three types of damages.

Economic damages compensate for financial losses, such as medical expenses or missed wages due to the inability to work. Non-economic damages compensate for non-financial losses associated with suffering an injury such as pain and suffering or mental anguish.

Economic and non-economic damages are similar in that their main purpose is to compensate the injured party for a specific loss. There is only one type of damages that has a different purpose and that is punitive damages. The purpose of punitive damages is to punish the negligent party. Since this is the case, punitive damages are typically reserved for cases where the at-fault party knew their actions would most likely cause harm but did them anyway. Punitive damages are usually quite severe and are not often awarded.

Four Things to Consider When Hiring a Personal Injury Law Firm

There are four main issues to research when looking for a personal injury law firm to represent you or your loved one. Not all law firms, or lawyers, are equally experienced, or talented. In searching for an Alaska personal injury lawyer, it is advised that you look over the following issues before you make a decision:

  1. Experience
    There are varying levels of experience, and some attorneys are new in practice, with very little real-life experience, while others may avoid court as much as possible, as they are not litigators, but just like to get a settlement and then move on. Look into the trial experience of the attorney before you make a decision – it matters.
  2. Results
    Does the law firm have case results you can review? If there are no high-value settlements, but the lawyer tends to represent low-value cases, and grab a settlement for the client without putting in the hard work it requires in serious injury cases, it is probably not the right firm for such cases.
  3. Fight for Maximum Compensation
    Some firms like to settle early, as the lawyer has too much on his or her plate, or is not personally dedicated to the injured person or the family. The fight for maximum compensation requires skill, determination, and the ability to press hard on the insurance company. When there is no response, or a failure to offer meaningful compensation, it is time to file suit. Your lawyer must be willing to go the distance in seeking maximum compensation.
  4. Personal One-On-One Relationship
    You don't want to be represented by a law firm that runs like an "injury mill." Many people complain that they never met their attorney, and were only spoken to by a staff member, and never felt like they were cared for. You want personal one-on-one care from the entire staff at the firm, including the attorney representing you. Connect with Johnson Beard & Trueb, PC for a firm that has the attributes and qualities you need on your side.
