Some people hesitate to contact a Portland Personal Injury Attorney because they fear people will assume they are simply looking for a handout. This could not be further from the truth. No one seeks to be injured in a car accident, in a slip and fall, or in some other accident caused by another person’s negligence. A personal injury lawsuit doesn’t seek to give someone free money, instead it helps to make a person as whole as possible after an injury.
When a Portland Personal Injury Attorney takes a particular case, they will look at certain factor to determine what a fair settlement offer looks like. They will examine your injuries, any lost work, future medical treatments, and non-economic damages in order to come up with an amount. The lawyer will obviously seek to maximize any award, but they will do so within reason. A personal injury lawsuit isn’t a lottery ticket; instead, it’s only option we have to help someone who has been hurt in an accident.
Money will never bring back a lost loved one. It will never help someone walk again after being paralyzed. It will never take away permanent pain suffered by a victim. But since there is no way to turn back the clock, all an attorney can do is try to get the injured party money to help them live as if this accident never occurred.
