    Don Yearin is committed to winning cases. With over 25 years of experience and over $75 million collected, Don’s oriented approach will provide you with all the guidance and help you’ll ever need. Personal injury cases are argued in civil court, meaning they do not require the same level of evidence as is required in criminal cases; however, that does not mean you should go to court without legal representation. Too many accident victims believe their claim is open-and-shut, that the evidence and their injuries will speak for themselves.

    Unfortunately, most cases do not work out this way, meaning the unprepared plaintiff almost always walks away with less than they needed or, worse, nothing.

    The Need for a Qualified Lawyer

    It is a statistical fact that personal injury claims argued by a lawyer result in more positive outcomes than claims made by ordinary citizens alone. The legal expertise required to argue a case does not disappear because a claim is considered civil rather than criminal. However, a lawyer should possess the right qualifications. Personal injury law is different from criminal law, and even within the category, there are specific niches or specializations.

    Before seeking legal representation, you need to ask yourself about your claim. What are the specifics of the case? Who is involved? If you are filing a workers’ compensation claim against your employer and their insurer, you do not want to hire a personal injury lawyer specializing in dog bite injuries. Instead, you want a lawyer with experience arguing your type of claim.

    Types of Personal Injury Cases

    The field of personal injury law is vast. You want to narrow your claim down to a specific subset or category to help you identify professionals with the expertise to help. There are several subsets of personal injury law. You may have grounds for a personal injury suit if you experienced any of the following:

    • An injury on someone else’s property. Propercasety owners must take steps to keep their grounds safe under premises liability law.
    • An injury resulting from using a defective product. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers each have certain responsibilities when it comes to creating, marketing and selling products.
    • An injury resulting from using a defective product. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers each have certain responsibilities when it comes to creating, marketing and selling products.

    Don’t Mistake Hubris for Knowledge or Skill

    Most often, people choose to argue a personal injury claim alone because they want to save money. After all, lawyers can charge upwards of 30% of your winnings, depending on the complexity and length of the case.

    In most instances, a lawyer is worth their fee. While you might think you will save money and come out ahead going it alone, you will not. Lawyers provide a distinct advantage in that they understand the intricacies of the law.

    Sure, an individual can study hard until the settlement negotiations start or the beginning of a trial. Still, their brief experience with law books and legal terminology does not compare to the years a lawyer spends honing their craft and narrowing their specialization. Do not underestimate the value of a legal, educated mind.
