The process of recovering compensation for your injuries can be quite complex and frustrating. You deserve compensation, but you may not have the energy, time, or ability to properly manage your claim. This is where an experienced personal injury attorney can help. Below, we’ll go into the details of the reasons you should hire a lawyer when you are filing a personal injury claim.
Unless you are a personal injury lawyer or have been through a personal injury claim before, it is likely that you are unfamiliar with much more than the basics of personal injury law. If you know that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, but don’t know how to get it, your lawyer is a valuable resource. They will have the extensive legal knowledge require to not only navigate the claims process, but also to advocate for your best interests and use their deep understanding of the law to fight for your maximum compensation. Additionally, they know all the mistakes to avoid, such as failing to file your claim in time to meet the statute of limitations. They can help you keep your claim on track and headed for success.
A Voice for You
If you’ve been injured in an accident, it is highly likely that an insurance company—either your own or the responsible party’s company—will want to speak with you. Insurance adjusters can make a simple conversation fraught with opportunities to jeopardize your claim and prevent yourself from receiving the full amount you deserve. Your attorney knows what to say and what not to say to insurance adjusters. They can help you navigate your conversations with insurance companies to prevent you from saying anything damaging, and can prevent adjusters from leading you into harming your claim.
A Fierce Advocate for You
You are likely facing a lot of stress while you juggle your recovery and your claim. As challenging as this time is, you’re not alone—your lawyer understands what you’re going through and is there to help. They’re ready to negotiate for a favorable settlement for you, and even represent you in court should your case need to go through litigation. Your attorney is completely on your side, and will do everything in their power to see that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
