Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?
Being injured due to someone else's carelessness or recklessness can be an incredibly frustrating experience. Regardless of the nature of your injury, it is likely that you are now facing life-altering consequences. In such challenging times, hiring a personal injury attorney becomes essential.
Personal injury lawyers are dedicated to safeguarding the rights of victims, as well as their family members and loved ones. They understand the complexities of personal injury cases and the tactics employed by insurance adjusters. It's important to note that insurance adjusters are often tasked with settling cases for as little compensation as possible, prioritizing the interests of their companies.
By hiring a personal injury attorney, you gain a powerful advocate who will fight tirelessly to protect your rights and pursue fair compensation on your behalf. Attorneys have extensive knowledge of personal injury laws and understand the intricacies of dealing with insurance companies. They will navigate the legal process for you, handling all the complexities and paperwork involved.
What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal injury attorneys possess the expertise to accurately assess the value of your claim. They consider various factors such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and long-term consequences of the injury. With their understanding of the true worth of your case, they can effectively negotiate with insurance adjusters and pursue a settlement that truly reflects your damages.
In addition to their negotiation skills, personal injury attorneys are prepared to take your case to court if a fair settlement cannot be reached. They will diligently prepare your case, gathering evidence, consulting with experts, and presenting a compelling argument before a judge and jury. Having a skilled litigator by your side ensures that you have the best chance of obtaining the compensation you deserve.
In conclusion, hiring a personal injury attorney is crucial to level the playing field against insurance companies and protect your rights. They will provide you with guidance, support, and representation throughout the legal process, ensuring that your interests are fiercely advocated for. With a personal injury attorney on your side, you can focus on your recovery while having the confidence that your case is being handled by a knowledgeable professional.
When to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Hiring a personal injury lawyer is a crucial step in ensuring you receive the full compensation you deserve. To maximize your chances of a successful outcome, it is best to hire an attorney as soon as possible after an incident occurs. Here's why:
- Collecting evidence: A skilled personal injury lawyer will immediately begin collecting vital evidence to build a strong case in your favor. This includes gathering medical records, police reports, photographs, and any other relevant documentation. By acting swiftly, they can preserve crucial evidence before it becomes lost or compromised.
What Factors do We Look at When Evaluating Your Case?
There are a variety of factors our team will look at when determining how to proceed with your personal injury case.
Some of these factors include:
- Identifying all applicable insurance policies
- Photos of any and all injuries
- Obtaining any police report, including photos of an accident scene
- Identifying witness names and contacting, if necessary
- Understanding the pain and suffering of the client
- Discuss complex legal issues such as subrogation
- Monitoring the progress of treatment/testing (MRIs, EMGs, etc.)
Once this information is secured (or as much of it can be gathered at the first meeting), we will determine whether your case is right for us. We do not select all cases for representation.
We select cases based on the following factors:
- Liability (the other person was at fault)
- Injuries (can't have a personal injury case without injuries to the person)
- Causation (the accident was the proximate cause of the injuries and damages)
- Damages (there were/are medical bills, identifiable pain and suffering)
These are just some of factors we consider. We also look to the likability of the potential client, the extent of preexisting injuries, and the medical treatment the potential client received. With tort reform being a very large stumbling block for personal injury lawyers around the country, it is important that the match between our law firm and the client is mutually satisfactory.
