3 Situations in Which You May Need a Personal Injury Lawyer, Texarkana, Texas

Victims of negligence and acts of intentional malice are often confused about their legal rights. They may be unsure about how to collect compensation for their damages. In these instances, a skilled personal injury lawyer can offer the vital guidance and legal insight necessary for accident victims attempting to navigate the process.

Below are a few signs that you may require the services of a skilled legal advocate:

  • personal injury lawyerYou've Suffered an Injury: Any time you have been injured, insurance companies will attempt to settle the claim for as little as possible. You should allow a personal injury lawyer to evaluate your claim to determine whether the proposed settlement is fair, or whether you should consider waiting to make sure no further symptoms emerge over time. The more serious your injuries, the more important the perspective of your personal injury lawyer becomes.
  • The Insurance Company's Offer Is Too Low: An insurer's first obligation is to their shareholders and, to a lesser extent, their own clients. To serve those ends, they often offer settlement amounts far below the actual damages suffered by the victims. However, because of the leverage an attorney can provide, they are often much less likely to attempt this tactic if the victim has hired a personal injury lawyer.
  • Your Claim Has Been Denied: In some cases, insurers may even deny valid claims in the hopes that you will simply abandon your claim or be prepared to accept an insufficient settlement offer later. Personal injury lawyers know how to compel insurers to take a claim seriously, even if they must take the case to court.
