Should I Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?
That is a question many people wrestle with after an accident. If you’ve never been through a serious personal injury before, it is almost impossible to understand the value that an experienced lawyer can provide. The truth is that not every injury case requires the services of an attorney. So how can you tell if you need one for your case?
The first thing you need to do is actually sit down with an attorney to discuss your situation. You may not have the kind of case where a lawyer can make a difference. If we can’t help you, we will be honest and upfront with you about it. If we believe we can help you, however, you should be prepared to get whatever information you need to make the right selection for you.
Do you want an attorney who has handled cases just like yours? Ask about the attorney’s credentials. Ask about prior cases. Ask about the trials and settlements he or she has handled in the past.
Are you concerned about cost? Ask about contingency fee rates, legal costs and other expenses. Our firm is actively interested in eliminating surprises for our clients. The last thing we want is for you to be disappointed or caught off guard by how your case is handled. Being seriously injured is a terrible ordeal. You do not need additional stress coming from your legal team.
How Does An Attorney Actually Help You?
In the vast majority of personal injury lawsuits, the compensation the injured party receives comes from an insurance company. Insurance companies have extensive experience in injury cases. They know every possible trick to avoid paying you the money you deserve. Without an experienced lawyer on your side, you will be at a tremendous disadvantage when dealing with the insurance company.
