Why Your Personal Injury Lawyer Should Have a Medical Background

How Just Knowing the Legalities May Not Get You the Maximum Compensation for Your Case

If you are injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you deserve high-quality legal representation. While many lawyers understand the legalities of a personal injury case, few have the medical background necessary to understand the injury part.

Prior to starting his legal career, attorney Paul Ajlouny worked in the medical field. His medical background helps him deal with not only the legal aspects of the case but also handle the injury portion including knowing how to calculate compensation for future treatment and rehabilitation. 

If you are injured in an accident, you need an attorney that can get you the largest recovery possible. At Ajlouny Injury Law we have the knowledge and experience you need to get the results you deserve. Contact our office now at (718) 233-3913 to schedule a free consultation. 

Why a Medical Background Matters in a Personal Injury Case

Unlike other areas of the law, to successfully handle a personal injury case an attorney needs to have legal and medical knowledge. There are countless medical issues that are brought up, litigated, and decided in personal injury cases. 

After an accident, there are undoubtedly medical problems, medical issues, and medical reports that will all need to be addressed. An attorney without a medical background may not know how to properly deal with these factors. While understanding the legalities of the case is essential, so is having an in-depth understanding of what the injuries mean, how long the recovery will take, and how much money it will cost.

Obtaining the Largest Settlement or Verdict After an Injury

A lawyer with a medical background can help you obtain a larger recovery because they know how to maximize damages. Many attorneys do not know to ask for compensation to cover future medical costs and treatments. They may focus solely on the current medical bills, obtaining just enough money to cover your out-of-pocket expenses.

A medical background can help an attorney to determine how much money it will take to fully compensate you long after the accident. Will you need surgery or rehabilitation? Will you need physical therapy or pain management? Without a medical background, an attorney may not be able to answer these critical questions and may not be able to quantify them for a jury.
