A trained personal injury attorney knows that the optimal result for a given client is one that delivers the amount of money that the same client deserves. In order to determine what their clients deserve; lawyers study the nature and extent of each client’s injuries.
Lawyers seek the evidence that should help to showcase the nature and extent of a given client’s injuries
• Is there some location from which surveillance footage can be retrieved?
• What witnesses did the client speak with? Are there any reports of other statements from witnesses?
• Did the client take any pictures at the accident site, during the periods that followed the accident’s occurrence?
• What government regulations might relate to this particular case?
• If someone was injured on a property, what are the regulations for buildings in that area?
• If someone was injured in an on-road collision, what is the traffic rule that might have been violated?
Additional acts that might be carried out by a client’s lawyer
Personal injury lawyers remind their clients to avoid negotiating with the insurance company until their doctors say that they have reached the point of maximum medical improvement (MMI).
Good lawyers stay in close communication with their clients. Each client’s questions get answered in a timely manner. If a client has settled with the other side, the lawyer arranges for the signing of the release form, so that the promised compensation can be sent to the waiting claimant/client. Clients that decide to pursue a lawsuit should expect their lawyer to help with filing a complaint, and serving the complaint and summons on the defendant.

Actions that are the client’s responsibility
• Offering an honest analysis of their pain; not exaggerating the extent of their injuries
• Not spending time on any social networking sites and fighting any temptation to post pictures on one or more social networking sites
• Sharing the relevant facts about their injury and their past medical history with a hired attorney.
Clients that recognize their responsibility, in the quest to obtain the deserved compensation or court-ordered judgment, work closely with the person that is providing them with legal guidance. Lawyers praise the readiness of smart clients to make their lives a bit easier.
Insurance companies watch for the time when a claimant demonstrates the absence of a pain that had been mentioned to a doctor. Discovery of the pain’s absence can help the insurer weaken a claimant’s argument. Thus, that same discovery can help an insurer to question the veracity of the claim that has been supported by the claimant’s argument.
