Being injured in an accident caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of someone else, whether it be a slip and fall, a car accident, or some other way, can be a difficult experience, to say the least. There will be the pain and frustrations associated with your injury. You may need extensive and invasive medical care on your path to physical recovery. There is also the mental and emotional trauma of being in an accident. On top of all this, there is a legal battle you may face as you work to enforce your legal right to recover compensation for the harm you have suffered. All of this can be a heavy burden for the shoulders of one person to carry. This is just one of several important reasons why you should consider hiring a personal injury attorney.
Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
Personal injury involves an intricate web of complex laws. These laws will address things such as who is liable for causing an accident as well as what expenses will be covered. A personal injury attorney will not only be able to understand these complicated laws but will be able to protect and pursue your best interest under these laws. Liability can involve a complex analysis of the specific facts of a case and your attorney can work to make sure that liability on the part of the other party is clearly established and supported. Furthermore, a personal injury attorney can assist in clearly presenting medical evidence to show what injuries and expenses were the direct results of the accident.
Insurance companies will often look for any means to undermine the value or validity of a claim. They want to avoid paying out what is due. Any hint of confusion regarding liability or causation, meaning the injuries caused by the accident, will be highlighted by an insurance company in an attempt to dismiss your claim or weaken its strength. An insurance company will work hard in calculating your potential damage award to avoid paying out whenever possible. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney will know what damages should be part of the calculation and will pursue your right to recover them in full.
Dealing directly with the insurance company can be a headache, to say the least, and this can be true even under the best of circumstances. Considering the fact that you have just gone through a physically and emotionally traumatic experience, this can be just too much to handle. A personal injury attorney can take on the legal and logistical burden of dealing with an insurance company. Furthermore, an insurance company may be more incentivized to make a legitimate settlement offer if dealing with an attorney because, with the right attorney, the insurance company may understand that a lawsuit is more likely to be filed if settlement negotiations are not taken seriously.
