Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident or a slip and fall incident, you may be weighing the pros and cons of hiring a personal injury lawyer. On one hand, you want to make sure you get the best settlement as possible. On the other, if you’re unable to work and the bills are piling up, you may be wondering if you can afford an attorney.

The good news is that most personal injury lawyers work on contingency. What that means, is that you won’t need to pay them unless your case is successful. Yet being able to hire an attorney on contingency is just one part of the equation. There are many reasons that you shouldn’t try to handle your case on your own.

An attorney can get you a better settlement

If you’re having a hard time paying the mortgage, a $50, 000 settlement offer can seem like a lot of money. However, if you’ve been injured in such a way that you’ll require extended, long-term care, $50, 000 is unlikely to cover your lifelong expenses. An experienced personal injury law firm will know the difference between a low-ball offer and a fair one. They can also help you understand what your case is worth.

It will save you time and stress

When you file a personal injury lawsuit, you’ll need to get ahold of medical records, witness statements and insurance documents. If you’re trying to recover, raise a family and return to work, the paperwork and the red tape that comes alongside this type of case can feel overwhelming. When you hire an attorney, they’ll be able to handle all of the paperwork for you.

A lawyer is an advocate that will work on your behalf

The primary job of the defendant’s insurance company is to pay out as little compensation as they can. If you try to handle your case by yourself and you make a mistake in the paperwork, there’s a chance that their attorney will be able to have your case dismissed on a technicality. Situations like this can be devastating to the injured party.

Working with a personal injury attorney means you’ll have an advocate that’s working on your behalf, to ensure you get the largest settlement possible.
