Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury lawyers help people who have sustained a physical or psychological injury due to the negligent or careless acts of another person, entity, or an organization by legally representing them in a court of law. They help their clients receive compensation for their losses which might include loss of earning capacity, medical expenses, pain, legal costs etc. They do this by gathering evidence, formulating legal theories, drafting pleadings and advocating for the claimant during the trial. Some of the most common cases handled by these lawyers are animal bite injuries, auto accidents, construction accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, etc. Personal injury lawyers also ensure that the claimant doesn’t become a victim to insurance companies or the legal systems. Finally, they charge their clients a percentage of the compensation that they receive. The average fee in the industry is around 30% of the compensation. Some lawyers even charge more.
If you feel that the fee is too much and decide to go ahead with the lawsuit without the help of a personal injury lawyer then it is definitely a mistake. Because filing a personal injury lawsuit requires years of practice, skill and knowledge about the legal system.

How to select a personal injury lawyer?
Finding the right personal injury lawyer can be a daunting task. You would first have to set a criterion such as their experience, level of education, fee, success rate, etc. The next step is to make a list of lawyers who match those criteria. You can do this through referrals, use lawyer directories or by searching for them online. From this list,you can shortlist a small number who match your requirements well and have good reviews from their clients. Then you can finally meet them and sign a contract with them.

When do you need a personal injury lawyer?
You should get in touch with experienced personal injury lawyers from Schreuders if you have suffered an injury that might require long term care or has caused some form of permanent disability. Our lawyers can help you figure out the impact on your earning capacity due to your injuries and calculate the compensation based on it. Sometimes, the insurance company evaluates the seriousness of your injuries, medical expenses, recovery time and calculate the potential compensation. If this amount has crossed the policy’s limits then they would only pay you a fraction of the compensation that you deserve. In these cases, you would require expert assistance from our personal injury lawyers to help you get the compensation that you are supposed to.
Insurance companies also try to trick you when there are multiple liabilities. If more than one person is hurt in an accident then there might not be much compensation. You might also be subjected to claims from other injured people. This would also decrease your compensation by a huge factor by claiming you to be partially at fault for the accident. Schreuder’s personal injury lawyers help you protect yourself from such counter-claims and fight for you to get the maximum compensation. We take only 3 to 6 months to turn around a compensation claim while the industry average is 24 months. We also help you receive all possible forms of compensation for your injuries through our workers’ compensation lawyers, a car accident lawyer, medical negligence lawyer or a TPD lawyer.
Dealing with personal injury lawyers can be physically & emotionally distressing. We at Schreuders understand & empathise with you to help you win the case.
