Top 10 Terms to Know When Discussing a Personal Injury Claim

Some attorneys speak legalese. But at the Law Offices of Edward Chavez Jr., we speak your language.

Few things turn life upside-down faster or more completely than an unexpected personal injury. The medical bills may cost more than several hundred thousand dollars and the pain and suffering may be almost unbearable, both for victims and their families.

Many lawyers unintentionally make these things worse. They use unfamiliar terms which non-lawyers do not understand, and they assume their clients know what they mean.

But at the Law Offices of Edward Chavez Jr., we treat clients like our partners, and not like our customers. That partnership is the best way to obtain maximum compensation in injury cases. Since our partnership should be a relationship between equals, we compiled a list of commonly-used legal terms in personal injury cases.
