Attorney’s Initial investigations
After you hire an injury lawyer, their first job is to begin investigating your case. They must find all the evidence that supports your claim. This includes physical evidence that proves who was at fault for the accident, as well as evidence of the value of your claim. The value of your claim is determined by the amount of your financial losses (such as medical bills and lost wages) plus the value of your non-economic losses like pain and suffering and lost quality of life. Your attorney also needs to know if there is any evidence that will make it more difficult to prove your claim.
