Metairie Personal Injury Attorney Explains Client’s Legal Rights 

If you have suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of another, the first step is to talk to a personal injury lawyer. Peyton Burkhalter is the right choice to maximize your opportunity for success. He will stand by you and fight for your rights to recover the financial compensation you are entitled to due to your injury.

You may wonder, “Do I have a potential case?” That is usually the first question asked by victims of accidents that could have been avoided. Filing a personal injury lawsuit is a legal action against the person or company who is responsible for your injury. The personal injury attorney is responsible for researching your case, presenting it and proving that negligence occurred. Of course, this is an oversimplification of the time and effort involved in winning a case. He will have to obtain statements from witnesses, photographs, medical reports, and other significant data for verification to establish fault.

Some people may assume that once the lawsuit is filed, they still have to go to court. Most cases settle out-of-court. It is to your advantage if possible to settle out of court simply because a trial could drag out for a long time, as well as saving money and reducing the stress of a lengthy legal battle.

Mr. Burkhalter will obtain the best settlement possible for your case whether it goes to trial or is settled out of court. Schedule a free consultation with this personal injury attorney to evaluate the merits of your case and discuss your options.
