The Top 4 Reasons to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

Reasons to hire a personal injury attorney

There are many reasons to hire a personal injury attorney. However, (and there is no way to say this without sounding self-serving) not nearly as many people hire personal injury lawyers as they should. Also, many people wait far too long to hire an experienced attorney to work on their personal injury cases. As a result, these individuals will suffer from their injuries for years and won’t receive fair compensation.

Injured Victims Don’t Know if They Have a Claim

One of the reasons to hire a personal injury attorney is that it is risk free. That’s because personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. That means there is no upfront retainer or payment and if there is no case, there is no fee.

I recommend to almost anyone that has been in a car accident or a slip and fall to hire a personal injury law firm right away. Even if you aren’t sure if you have suffered an injury in your accident, you should retain an attorney. 

However, if a victim of negligence waits too long to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer, they can seriously damage their personal injury claim. If you wait to hire an attorney or see a doctor, you can make it incredibly hard to win your case. That means that people who think they might not be hurt initially, but later feel pain are often put in a bad position.

Insurance Companies Exist to Turn a Profit

Another reason to hire a personal injury attorney is that insurance companies and adjusters aren’t trustworthy. I’ve said this before in this blog, but insurance companies do not exist to serve the interests of people making claims. They don’t even exist to serve the interests of their insureds. Insurance companies exist to make profits. They are large, multi-billion dollar corporations. Insurance companies entire business is motivated by profits.

That means that insurance companies have massive resources at their disposal and their sole intention is to save money on claims (and take in money from premiums). Without an attorney, an injury victim will face the insurance company and all of their resources alone.

Personal Injury Attorneys Work on Personal Injury Cases Everyday

Another reason to hire a personal injury attorney is their expertise. A personal injury lawyer has far more experience handling a personal injury case than a regular person. In fact, a personal injury lawyer has infinitely more experience handling personal injury cases than lawyers that only occasionally dabble in personal injury cases.  

Having an experienced personal injury law firm on your side will even the playing field with the insurance company. Pursuing a claim on your own may feel overwhelming. An injury attorney knows the best methods to get the victim fair compensation for their injuries.

Personal Injury Attorneys Know How to Maximize Damages

Pursuing a personal injury claim is about more than getting your medical bills paid. Many injury victims will have future medical bills that result from their accident. They can lose wages or even the ability to do their job in the future. They will have pain and suffering and mental anguish that deserves compensation. 

There are numerous damages injury victims suffer. Experienced personal injury attorneys know how to fight to have victims compensated for those things. They know the proper experts to hire. And theey knowthe best way to present evidence to an insurance company or jury to make the case compelling.
