28 Jul Why You Should Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer
Being involved in an accident or sustaining an injury in any way due to the fault of another causes stress and confusion. Making sure you are compensated for the injury is difficult to achieve without the aid of an experienced lawyer. Hiring a personal injury lawyer will go a long way in easing the burden of your claim and getting you the compensation, you deserve. Many questions will present themselves when an injury happens. Here are some common questions we hear and would like to address:
1. Can I represent myself?
While true in theory – you can represent yourself – the fact of the matter is that maybe you should not. Initially, insurance companies may offer you a “nuisance sum to settle your claim.” This tactic allows the insurance company to pay you a lesser sum than you may be entitled to. On average, a Plaintiff receives 3 to 6 times more in compensation when they hire a personal injury lawyer. This justifies the hiring of an attorney in most situations.
2. You just want to get my money, don’t you?
This is one of the biggest myths of hiring a personal injury lawyer. The best part about hiring a personal injury lawyer is that we do not get paid unless you are compensated. In many instances, a personal injury lawyer is likely to yield you a higher payout than without one.
3. Why should I hire you?
The fact is a professional experienced lawyer has the tools and resources to negotiate with the insurance company. Experienced lawyers have negotiated, settled, and tried cases involving many issues and injuries and understand how to present the case to the insurance company or to a jury.
For instance, the Plaintiff may require an “expert witness” to describe the nature of the injuries, their relationship to the incident that gave rise to the claim/lawsuit, and future medical concerns. An experienced personal injury will ensure that the claim/lawsuit proceeds in a manner that is beneficial to his client.
You need to be treated and compensated fairly. There are many good reasons why you should hire an experienced personal injury lawyer. These are just a very few.
