Benefits of Hiring a Naples Law Firm to Handle Your Personal Injury Claim

If you were hurt during slip and fall incident at a grocery store, or you sustained whiplash in a no-fault car accident, you’ll want to speak with an attorney that specializes in personal injury litigation.

When you hire an experienced lawyer, you’ll be working with an advocate that will fight to get you the best settlement possible. This will be especially important if you have extensive medical expenses, need long-term care, or will need to take extended time off from work.

The defendant’s insurance company isn’t on your side

If you’re contacted by the defendant’s insurance company, the biggest mistake you can make is trying to negotiate a settlement on your own. Remember- the insurance company isn’t looking out for your best interests. It’s not concerned about making sure you have the money you need to handle your expenses.

The insurance company’s job is to minimize losses.

Although a $20, 000 settlement offer can seem like a lot of money if you’re struggling to pay the rent, it may not be enough to cover your long-term expenses. For example, if you need to take several months off from work (and need to pay for doctor’s visits, prescriptions and physical therapy), that $20, 000 check won’t last very long.

A personal injury lawyer can help you understand how much your case might be worth. They’ll also know how to navigate the legal system and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

Without an attorney, you run the risk of missing important deadlines

When it comes to filing a personal injury case, you’ll have a limited amount of time to do it. This is called the statute of limitations. You will not be able to file your case after the statute of limitations expires.

If you do file on time, there will be other important court deadlines you’ll need to meet. If you miss any of them, the opposing party may be able to file a motion to have the case dismissed.

Hiring a personal injury lawyer will give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that all court deadlines will be met, all briefs will be filed on time, and that discovery requests will be handled as required.

It will also allow you to focus on recovering from your injuries.

If you’ve been injured in a no-fault accident and you have questions about how personal injury litigation works, call The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. today to schedule a free, no-cost consultation.
