It's true that not every injury will automatically qualify you for compensation, and not every bump or bruise will require a personal injury attorney. However, there are many situations in which having legal representation can be the deciding factor determining whether you receive the damages you deserve. Moen Ehrsam & Kroner SC is a La Crosse law firm with extensive experience helping accident victims file their claims.
You should contact a personal injury attorney immediately if:
- You Need Medical Attention: For all but the most minor injuries, your interests are almost always best served by having a skilled legal advocate negotiate with the insurance company for you. Some injuries may require long-term treatment, so you'll want to make sure you get enough to realistically cover your future medical expenses, as well.
- You Can't Get A Fair Offer: Remember that an insurance company's first duty is to their own bottom line, so it's in their best interests to offer you as little as possible. In fact, they'll often make an offer that doesn't even cover the basic expenses in the hopes that you'll simply accept it and go way. However, more insurers won't try this tactic when they're dealing with a personal injury attorney.
- Your Claim Is Denied: This applies to having your claim denied by any insurance company, including yours. When the insurance company rejects a claim, many people simply give up. However, an attorney will know how to collect the evidence they need to convince the insurance company that they're liable and determine whether filing a lawsuit is worthwhile if they don't.
