Do I Need An Attorney?

If you’re injured it’s highly recommended you hire a legal professional. If you don’t hire one – you’re putting yourself at a serious disadvantage if you decide to handle the claim on your own.

1. ) People who hire an attorney are usually apt to get better settlements and be taken more seriously by insurance companies and defendants. 

2.) Insurance companies aren’t always on your side. Shortly after you’ve been involved in an accident, an insurance adjuster will reach out to you, trying to present themselves as a trusted individual with your best interests in mind. This could be your insurance company or the insurance company who represents the person who caused your injuries. In reality, many large insurance companies have adopted settlement policies that encourage their adjusters to offer quick payments, with terms as favorable as possible for their company – not for your best interests.

Do not accept any claim before you speak with an attorney. In most cases, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you get significantly more compensation than an insurance company is willing to offer.

3.) The personal injury claims process is intricate. Personal Injury cases, especially catastrophic injury cases, can often be complex, lengthy and costly to take to trial. You need an experienced law firm with the tools, technology, resources and financial capability to take on large corporations and insurance companies.

It is imperative that you find an attorney that specializes in personal injury law rather than a typical, general practice attorney.
