What Is a Personal Injury Lawyer?

The primary role of a personal injury lawyer is to provide representation to individuals who have been injured by someone else's negligent actions. When you hire an injury lawyer to represent you, your lawyer will take on several responsibilities to help drive your case forward:

  1. They will investigate your accident and gather evidence to support your claim for compensation.
  2. They will communicate with the insurance company on your behalf.
  3. They will file any important motions or documents with the court on your behalf; this includes writing a demand letter to the at-fault party requesting compensation for your injuries.
  4. They will negotiate with the responsible party and attempt to get a satisfactory settlement on your behalf.
  5. In the event that the other party is unwilling to offer a fair settlement, your injury attorney will go to court and represent you before a judge and/or jury.
  6. Once a settlement has been awarded, your attorney will ensure that you receive the compensation that the court awarded you.

Hiring an injury lawyer to represent you is one of the best moves you can make to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries and that the insurance company doesn't just give you the runaround when it comes to paying up.

Handling All Personal Injury Cases

When you file an injury claim against an insurer for compensation, you must be prepared to fight for every cent you need. Insurance companies have a collective reputation for placing blame on everyone else but their policyholders, so it is important that you have a strong strategy to counteract their tactics and obtain the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled. At Kalfus & Nachman PC, we can review your case, help you prepare for what to expect, and represent you for every interaction with an insurance company, including during settlement negotiations or courtroom litigation.

We can help you with personal injury cases involving the following and more:

Car accidents: Reckless and negligent drivers are everywhere. If you did your best to drive defensively but still got into a car accident, don’t blame yourself and don’t accept a lowballed settlement offer from the other driver’s auto insurance provider. Talk with our team first to make certain you are pursuing the maximum amount of compensation you are owed.


Social Security Disability: Obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits is supposed to be as simple as filing an application with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Of course, hardly anything involving a government agency is so simple. To navigate this frustrating process, leave the busywork up to us. We can also help challenge wrongful SSDI benefit denials.

Defective products: Product makers of all sorts can be held strictly liable for any damage their products cause consumers. From defective auto parts to hazardous home appliances, our law firm is experienced in product liability claims of all sorts.

Premises liability: Property owners owe visitors, guests, customers, clients, and even trespassers some amount of care when on their property. If an accident happens due to an unreasonable hazard on the property, then the property owner could be the one to pay for the damages through a premises liability claim.

Truck accidents: You should never try to fight a trucking company alone after being in a bad truck accident. They are almost guaranteed to have an insurance defense team on staff and eager to cut your claim’s value to shreds. Prepare instead with our help.


Workers’ compensation: Injured workers in Newport News can come to our law firm for assistance when preparing and filing a workers’ compensation claim. If your claim is denied, then we can also help with appeals.

As your chosen legal advocates, we will work tirelessly to ensure that your financial and medical needs are met as your case develops and after it concludes. When insurance companies try to get in between you and your wellbeing, we will be there to stand up for you.
