When Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
If you or someone you love have sustained any type of injury following an accident you believe to be the fault of another individual, one of the first things you should consider is hiring an attorney to best represent you. Most accidents or incidents that result in serious injuries will require the specialized knowledge and skills of a personal injury attorney to make sure you get the appropriate financial compensation.
When dealing with a personal injury claim, every situation is unique. It’s important to choose someone with the right skill set who will know how to proceed and secure compensation in the full amount. Some things to consider when deciding whether or not to contact an attorney are:
- The severity of your injury: If you were severely injured in your accident, you should contact an attorney immediately. Medical bills are likely piling up, and you may be facing lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. If the injury caused you to lose your job, hiring an experienced attorney could save you and your family from experiencing a lifetime of financial stress and damages. An experienced attorney will fight for the compensation needed to make you whole again.
- Your claim has been denied by the insurance company: While the entire purpose of an insurance company is to protect you, insurance companies are for-profit organizations who will try to reduce your payout as much as feasible, or deny your claim altogether. Insurance companies also can delay your claim, leaving you in financial limbo while medical bills roll in. Most companies are aware that you may not know exactly how the system works, which could lead them to take advantage of you.
- Multiple parties were involved: If multiple parties were involved in the accident and more than one individual may be responsible for your injuries, we will work diligently to make sure you receive the appropriate compensation from every party involved. You may be additionally concerned that fault is unclear in your accident. Our firm will launch a full investigation into your accident to determine fault and build a strong case on your behalf.
