An accident or injury that occurs to you or a family member can change your life and alter your financial circumstances for the worst. Individuals who experience harm due to the negligence of another party have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit. Personal injury is a broad area of the law that is best handled by an experienced personal injury attorney. Here are several key reasons why hiring a personal injury attorney is always in your best interest following injury or accident in which another party may be legally responsible.
(1) A Personal Injury Attorney Knows The Law
Since laws pertaining to personal injury may vary from state to state, hiring a personal injury attorney who is experienced in winning personal injury lawsuits is crucial to your obtaining fair compensation. An attorney knows the statute of limitations, which legal documents to file, and knows what legal technicalities may affect the outcome of your case.
(2) An Attorney Knows How to Determine What Your Claim is Worth
Individuals who deal directly with the opposing party’s insurance company can often be mislead about what financial compensation they may be entitled to following an accident or injury. More often than not, an insurance company will offer a settlement figure that in no way will compensate an accident victim for all his pain or suffering or all of the expenses that will continue to pile up. But representation by an experienced personal injury attorney takes the burden off of you to analyze the dollar amount your case is worth as well as eliminates the stress of your dealing directly with insurance company representatives who won’t have your best interests at heart.
(3) You Can Focus on Your Recovery
Few things can be as stressful as the circumstances surrounding a personal injury lawsuit. But when you are represented by experienced legal counsel specializing in personal injury law, you can relax and focus on recovering from your injuries and let your attorney do the heavy lifting in terms of getting the settlement you deserve or deciding whether to take the lawsuit to trial.
(4) An Attorney Improves Your Odds of Receiving Fair Compensation
Loss of work, permanent disabilities, and escalating medical expenses are some of the things that can result when you are injured due to the negligence of another party. You can’t afford to miss out on receiving fair financial compensation for all of your pain and suffering but you can afford to hire a personal injury attorney. Most personal injury attorneys work on your behalf on a contingency basis. This means that you don’t need to pay any money needed upfront, and that the firm is paid once a settlement is received, with no money out of your pocket.
(5) An Attorney Can Motivate An Insurance Company To Settle
It can be stressful and time consuming to have to take your case to trial. But when you are represented by an experienced personal injury attorney, an insurance company will sit up and take notice that you are not fooling around and that you really mean business in going after them for any financial compensation owed to you. Your attorney will work hard to get the financial settlement you deserve without dragging your case into court. That means a faster receipt of money you can use toward medical expenses that ensure your recovery.
