Hi, I’m Theodore Spaulding. I am an Atlanta personal injury trial lawyer and the founder of Spaulding Injury Law.
So the answer to this question is not what you typically think a personal injury lawyer does. We all know personal injury lawyers advocate for their injured clients to try to get them just compensation for their damages. They try cases, they settle cases. We all know that. But what a personal injury lawyer really does or really should do, in my opinion, is they are there to learn everything they can about a client’s life, and to be there during a very difficult time.
What I like to tell people is, “Look, I’m half-lawyer and I’m half-psychologist in my cases.” And what I mean by that is yes, I’m out there advocating for my client and their best interest, but what I’m also there for is day-to-day things. You can call me, we can talk about what you’re going through. I’m oftentimes on the phone with clients for an hour or more when they’re having a bad day, and something’s going on. They’ve got issues with, you know, maybe a treating physician telling them something and they got bad news and what should they do now when it comes to treatment, to, you know, personal issues and things like that. If we can become that person for the client because we’re the one that’s there every day fighting for that client, so we’re there to be there for that client, we’re there to answer questions, and just generally to support the client throughout the process.
The biggest part of what a personal injury lawyer does, quite frankly, is takes the burden of running a personal injury claim off of the client so the client can focus on getting treatment and trying to get better. And the lawyer takes some of that pressure off so they can focus just on that by dealing with adjusters, obviously lawyers once there’s a lawsuit that has been filed, and generally get the client from the very beginning in darkest days of their injury, to the very end where they’re better or almost better, they’ve got their case resolved, whether that be pre-suit and a settlement, litigating the case and a settlement at some point before trial, or trying that case to a jury to get a verdict.
So that’s what a personal injury lawyer really does, in my opinion.
