Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
After you’ve suffered an injury in an accident, you might be wondering where to turn to for legal help. You also might have questions about whether or not you should hire a personal injury lawyer. If you’ve suffered severe injuries, it is often important to contact a personal injury attorney. Filing a personal injury lawsuit is something that requires skill and training. It also requires an understanding of the legal system and of the specific rules and laws in place in a specific state.
If you are wondering if you need to hire a personal injury lawyer, you should know there are certain kinds of accidents that often require a lawyer. In these cases, hiring an attorney is usually worth it.
In part one of a two part series of whether or not you need a personal injury attorney will look at two reasons that indicate you do need a lawyer:
1: If you’ve suffered long-term injuries or have a permanent disability because of the accident.
2: If your injuries were severe.
In these cases, you’re dealing with significant impacts to your life as well as many medical bills. The costs to you in these cases are high, and an injury lawyer can help you get the money you are owed for your injuries.
If you’ve been in an accident that was caused by the reckless or careless actions of another person, you might be eligible to receive financial compensation for your injuries and other damages. If the accident only resulted in minor injuries, it might be worth it to settle outside of court. But, for serious injuries, hiring a personal injury lawyer is worth it in the long-run.
Here are two more reasons why you should consider hiring a personal injury lawyer.
1: If there were multiple parties involved or the issue of liability is unclear.
In these instances, the case can get complicated, an attorney can handle these nuances.
2: If the insurance company refuses to pay you or is trying to lowball you.
Sometimes insurance companies will refuse to offer a fair settlement. In these cases, you need someone on your side to help you with your case. An attorney will fight for you.
