If you are filing a lawsuit for personal injury, an experienced injury lawyer can help you successfully navigate the litigation process. Joshi & Patel are injury attorneys with winning track records. They have successfully recovered millions of dollars for their clients through settlements and trials.  

What is a personal injury lawyer 

Personal injury attorneys typically focus on one type of personal injury claim, such as car accident injuries (Joshi & Patel were voted Top 1% Car Accident Lawyer) however will also work on slip and fall, medical malpractice, negligent security, work injury, wrongful death or other unique personal injury claims. They also have experience in tort law, which involves civil litigation to recover financial damages in a settlement.

The following are a few scenarios where you might consider hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you:

•You were involved in a car accident, medical malpractice or a slip and fall and the insurance company refuses to pay for your injuries. 

•You’ve suffered a long-term or permanently disabling injury from a car accident, a slip and fall or other accident.

•You’ve suffered a severe short-term injury that resulted in significant medical costs. 

•You suffered an injury or illness as a result of negligence or medical malpractice by a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other health care provider. 

•You were exposed to a toxic substance as a result of negligent contamination of air, water, or food.

•You’ve experienced psychological trauma or illness as a result of another’s negligence. 

•You’re being sued by someone claiming negligence on your part.

The cost of a personal injury lawyer

Joshi & Patel offer a free case evaluation, no obligation consultation. Once it has been determined that you have a case, we will work for you on a contingent fee basis. In other words, you don’t pay your personal injury attorney fees up-front. Instead, you sign an agreement to pay us a percentage of your settlement amount. You pay us absolutely nothing unless you recover.

Remember that a personal injury lawyer already has extensive experience with the settlement negotiation process, and can negotiate much more effectively than someone who is unfamiliar with personal injury law and will ensure the best outcome for your case.
