Accidents happen and some can be unavoidable, but determining if someone other than yourself is at fault can be a lifesaver. Discussing your situation with one of our personal injury lawyers is a great way to understand your rights in the given situation.
Do I need a personal injury lawyer?
Obviously, you are not legally required to have a lawyer, you can fill out all the paperwork yourself and represent yourself in court. However, it is like doing taxes, you want someone that knows the ins and outs of the law and that can help win your case. The insurance company has a goal to minimize the amount they have to pay out. Our lawyers want you to obtain the maximum payout and gain the compensation you deserve.
Benefits of hiring a personal injury lawyer
First, your recovery is our top priority. We want you to obtain the best medical care to treat your injuries and to negotiate with the at-fault party to obtain the highest compensation available.
Second, we want to protect all of your legal interests. You may be focused on the injury itself, but you have to remember some events have injuries that run much deeper. We will account for pain and suffering and time off of work.
Also, we know the ins and outs of the law. We want to make sure you are compensated fairly and paperwork errors or injury claims that are not documented properly can impede your compensation and rights.
We will also investigate the incident and establish proof that the accident was not your fault. We will fight for you to determine you get all you are entitled to regarding the accident. We will make sure there is no doubt in the extent of your injuries. We will offer you peace of mind that everything that can be done, will be done to the fullest extent. Your life will eventually return to normal and our lawyers will ensure that you are resting well and not stressing about the financial side of things while you are trying to recover.
When should you hire a personal injury lawyer?
There are a few key instances when you should consider hiring a personal injury lawyer. If your injury resulted in a long-term or permanent disability, you should definitely talk to one of our lawyers. These types of injuries will affect your quality of life and can affect your future employable status. Another instance that requires our intervention is if the insurance company disputes their liability to the accident. They will say they have not seen enough proof to validate the claim. Other times, the insurance company will refuse to pay and that is when you need us to step in and take action on your behalf.
