When Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer? April 18, 2017

When Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?, Waterbury, Connecticut

In the wake of a personal injury, you need to juggle medical bills, days of missed work or school, and insurance claims. Seeking professional assistance can make the recovery process easier, but many people are unsure of when they should hire an injury lawyer. Below are three common scenarios in which you would benefit from the guidance of a skilled injury attorney.

When an Insurance Company Tries to Get You to Settle

Insurance companies want you to settle your claim quickly and for much less than you deserve. If you've suffered a personal injury and an insurer is pressuring you to settle, it's time to hire an injury lawyer. Insurance companies employ numerous persuasive tactics to get you to accept their initial offer. Don't be swayed—call an injury attorney who can negotiate on your behalf.

When You Have Questions About the Legal Process

If you have more questions than answers about your legal proceedings, contact an injury lawyer to represent you. An attorney will manage your case for you, answer your questions, and handle the claim to prevent potentially costly errors.

When Your Costs Don't Fall Under Typical Insurance Coverage

Insurance coverage is great for medical care and its associated costs. But some expenses fall outside the boundaries of many insurance plans, such as the costs of lost wages, compensation for pain and emotional distress, and mounting copays and deductibles. If you have expenses like these piling up because of your personal injury, let an injury lawyer help you explore your options.
