Injured and Not Sure if You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
There are many myths and misconceptions about how difficult and expensive it can be to hire an attorney. However, whenever you are involved in an accident and/or injured due to the negligence of a third party, it is important to hire an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable in the area, and who can help you make the best decisions. for you.
Each accident is different, and has its particular circumstances. When we do not have knowledge in the legal area, it is easy for us to make mistakes and consequently not get what we deserve.
Here’s a look at when and why it’s a good idea to hire a lawyer.
1. How do I know if I can file a lawsuit? Again, lack of knowledge may not even help us determine when we have the right to file a lawsuit. An attorney will help you analyze the circumstances of your situation and determine if you have a valid case to move forward.
2. I am being blamed for an accident that was not my fault. Insurance companies will often go to great lengths to avoid paying compensation. Insurers use different strategies to try to shift the blame towards the other person, and even question the claim and reject it completely. You deserve a lawyer who can act as an intermediary, and who has experience handling insurance companies so that you can get the compensation you really deserve.
3. There are more than two parties involved. Accidents involving multiple parties can be more complex and longer. In these cases, not only is it necessary to determine the liability of each party, but there may also be multiple insurance companies involved. Only an experienced lawyer will be able to develop a case in your favor, taking care of your interests at all times.
4. Type of injuries. Fortunately, there are cases where people come out of an accident without a single scratch, but this is not always the case. Your injuries may be severe, cause a temporary or permanent disability that will prevent you from returning to work, or you may also need surgery and/or medical treatment in the future. An attorney will need to analyze all of these variables and take them into account in order to fight for an amount of compensation that is sufficient to cover all of your medical needs.
