What does a personal injury lawyer do?
A personal injury lawyer assists an individual in receiving compensation from the party responsible for the injuries. Our Baltimore personal injury lawyers will begin by discussing the facts of your injury. We will want to know who caused the injury to occur, how they caused it, when they caused, and we will want to know what parts of your body have caused you pain. Our Baltimore injury attorneys will evaluate whether it is likely another party will be legally responsible for your injuries.
If you need additional treatment and do not already have a medical or chiropractic professional assisting you, our Baltimore personal injury lawyers will refer you to a provider convenient for you to begin or continue your medical treatment with. Once your medical treatment has concluded, our Baltimore personal injury lawyers will retrieve all relevant medical records and bills to submit to the insurance company to begin settlement negotiations.
Our personal injury clients will decide whether or not to accept settlement, and we will provide our professional opinion on the settlement offer. If a case is not settled our method is to institute formal litigation in the appropriate court by filing an official Complaint to begin the lawsuit. Our Baltimore personal injury attorneys go on the offensive against the Defendant, requesting discovery responses from the Defendant(s) required to be answered in a limited period of time. We take the deposition of individuals involved in the matter and witnesses, in which we have the opportunity to ask them questions while under oath, with a court reporter transcribing every word they say, and often while being video recorded. We assist our clients with their written discovery responses, and help them prepare for their deposition.
In jury trial cases, our Baltimore personal injury lawyers will write pretrial statements to be reviewed by the judge ahead of the pretrial conference in which we outline what we will be proving at trial, and how we will be proving it. In circuit court jury trial cases we will designate expert witnesses to testify on your behalf. We negotiate with defense lawyers and adjusters throughout the process. The Baltimore personal injury lawyers at Hassan, Hassan & Tuchman will prepare you for trial with our objective to win the case for you in the best way possible and strategically advocate for you at trial before a judge or a jury.
