Lawyer Jargon

Talking with your attorney can be really confusing when they start using words you’ve never heard before. When working with your lawyer on a personal injury case, you’ll need to spend ample amounts of time communicating with them in order to build the strongest case you can. In order to have the most efficient communication with your attorney, it can help to have some understanding of common legal jargon that they often use. Here’s a list of some general words and phrases that you may hear while in court or just simply talking with your lawyer:

Roundup Lawsuit

Roundup is the name of an herbicide brand that contains glyphosate. It was originally sold by an American agricultural chemical company Monsanto, in 1974. Roundup has different products for different specifications. They produce a wide range of weed killers and other products under the name. Monsanto was bought by German drug and chemical company, Bayer, in 2018. Bayer owns other household products such as Aspirin, Claritin, Aleve, Alka-Seltzer, and more.

Roundup is used to kill weeds. It is sprayed directly onto the leaves, then the entire plant absorbs the poison and will kill all plants it comes in contact with. The active ingredient, glyphosate, is a common ingredient in many pesticides in the United States.

Motorcycle Accident

If you were involved in a motorcycle crash, you may be dealing with expensive medical bills, missing work, and a long, painful recovery. After being injured in a motorcycle crash, you have the right to sue the person responsible for the collision. According to The Motorcycle Legal Foundation, 79,000 people were injured in a motorcycle accident and 5,115 died in 2019. Many people in these situations do not know there are legal actions they can pursue after the accident.

Demand Package

Around 70% of people with personal injury claims receive compensation. In order to secure a payout, your personal injury lawyer will compile a demand package to send to the insurance company. The success of your case is heavily reliant on the strength of your demand package. Filing a personal injury claim can be very stressful, so we want to help you understand everything you need to know about demand packages.

Car Accident Law

It can be hard figuring out what documents you need to keep track of in order to make a solid case after a car accident. Being in a car accident is a stressful event even if it didn't result in injury. Having these documents will benefit you when talking with the insurance companies. If you were injured during your accident, then your claim is even more reliant on presenting evidence that the other driver was at fault. It also bodes well to show evidence of said injuries as proof of pain and suffering.

Once it's time to settle your claim, your lawyer will put together a demand package outlining your claim to send to the insurance company. They will need to know a lot of information surrounding the accident. The documents you’ll need can become taxing to find, especially when you don’t even know where to start.

So what documents should you bring to your injury law attorney to help strengthen your claim? Here is a list of 8 of the most important things you’ll need:
