Investigating a personal injury case includes understanding the circumstances and the accident scene, interviewing witnesses, conducting an investigation of the negligent party, and documenting your harms and losses.

An injury attorney takes care of everything that goes into a claim, including gathering the evidence, presenting your claim, and communicating with insurance companies.
