Have You Been Injured? Discover Why Hiring an Attorney is a Good Idea

If you or a family member have been injured, you may wonder if there’s any real need to hire an attorney. At first, hiring an injury lawyer may not even occur to you. You expect to be treated fairly after an injury, but the hard truth is that most insurance companies aren’t in the business of paying claims. They’re in the business of keeping their money, and they are very, very good at it.

Why Do I Need an Injury Lawyer?

1. The law is extremely complicated. There’s no reason to go it alone when you’ve been injured. Expert injury lawyers know the law and can make sure nothing is missed during the entire process.

2. Not hiring an injury lawyer may end up costing you more. Insurance companies may balk at the amount of your medical bills and may even try to minimize the severity of your injuries. You have nothing to lose when you hire an attorney from our firm. Our fees are paid only if we win a settlement or verdict for you. If that doesn’t happen, you owe us nothing.

3. An injury attorney knows how to negotiate a fair settlement. A professional injury lawyer knows how to help you get a fair and just settlement, including medical bills, compensation for lost work, travel expenses, pain and suffering, and any other losses caused by your injuries.

4. An attorney can help you win at trial. When insurance companies refuse to offer the help you need, sometimes, the best option is to go to trial. Our firm has a long tradition of winning and our happy clients attest to our success.

Don’t Go It Alone

The insurance company of the other party has legal representation. If you chose to go it alone after an injury, you’d be taking on the other party’s attorneys by yourself. The person who contacts you from their insurance company will very likely be an attorney though they may not say so. They may ask to record your statement over the phone, and then proceed to confuse and upset you in an effort to throw doubt on your case. They may even say they don’t believe you. That’s why contacting a personal injury lawyer immediately is critical. They’ll handle all communications with the other party’s attorneys and insurance company, saving you additional pain and suffering during a very difficult time.
