Why Hire An Attorney?
Have you been hurt in an accident and don’t know what to do? It’s easy to get confused and overwhelmed by all the questions coming from doctors, law enforcement, and insurance companies.
A personal injury attorney can help you understand what to do and what steps to take next.
10 Reasons To Hire A Personal Injury Attorney:
- Experience Reviewing Claims: An experienced personal injury attorney will be honest and let you know if you are likely to win your case. They will not proceed with a litigation if a win is very unlikely or the costs outweigh the benefits. You will save time and money by consulting with a professional attorney.
- No Charges if You Don’t Win: Most personal injury attorneys work for a contingency fee, which means that if you do not win your case, you will not pay attorneys’ fees. There may be other fees involved, however, they are not directly related to an attorney’s services, such as the fees doctors charge for reviewing your records or being interviewed.
- Get the Best Settlement: A settlement is when a plaintiff (the injured party) will give up the right to sue in exchange for a payment from the defendant or insurance company. A personal injury lawyer will negotiate the best settlement and make sure the case is resolved as early as possible.
- Cut through The Red Tape: Most personal injury cases involve confusing medical terms, complicated legal procedures and tons of paperwork. A professional and experienced attorney will work through all of that to resolve your claim. You have the benefit of putting all of the complicated matters into someone else’s hand and living your life.
- Investigative Team that Works for You: Attorneys have a team of investigators who are experienced in specialized areas. They will skillfully examine all of the technical aspects of your case. You can help out the investigative team by providing all of the information regarding your injury.
- Objective Perspective: An attorney will help you not make rash decisions due to anger or frustration. They will lead you in the best direction possible as someone with a clear perspective on your case.
- Options for Resolving a Dispute: There is more than one way to win a case. A lawyer may advise you that a complicated and long trial isn’t necessary and things can be resolved through alternative dispute resolution methods. This will save you time and money and most of all your energy. An example of a common ADR can be an arbitration.
- They Will Fight Hard to Win Your Case: A personal injury lawyer will passionately represent you in court. The lawyer will work hard to form a legal strategy that will compensate you as much as possible.
- Experience Working with Other Lawyers: A personal injury lawyer knows how to deal with the other party’s attorney. This can be important especially during a litigation when facts are presented and lawyers need to exchange documents.
- Insurance Company Experience: An experienced personal injury lawyer will work with insurance companies to get the best settlement. A good lawyer will get the insurance settlement you deserve, and won’t be confused or pressured by insurance companies’ rules and tactics.
As stated above, a personal injury lawyer is critical to your claim. If you or someone you know has been injured in an accident caused by another’s careless actions, you should consider hiring an attorney as soon as possible after the accident.
