When Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?, Columbia, Maryland

Many victims of car crashes and other accidents find themselves unable to work, recovering from injuries while medical bills and other expenses continue to pile up. Insurance companies may extend a settlement offer, but their first priority is always protecting their own interests, not relieving the financial burden of your injuries. According to Plaxen & Adler, a law firm with offices in Columbia, Owing Mills, and Baltimore, MD, a personal injury lawyer's services are vital to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

These personal injury lawyers recommend hiring an attorney if:

  • personal-injury-lawyer-Plaxen-&-AdlerYou've Been Injured: Even seemingly minor injuries can later develop into painful and expensive soft-tissue conditions, so always seek medical attention and legal counsel before accepting a claim. A personal injury lawyer will be able to evaluate your case and calculate the actual value of your damages.
  • The Settlement Offer Is Too Low: If you're dealing directly with the insurance company, they may attempt to make a settlement offer that doesn't adequately cover your damages in the hopes that you will accept it out of exhaustion. Because an experienced personal injury lawyer will know what your case is worth and how to negotiate, the insurer will take your claim more seriously if you've retained professional legal representation.
  • Your Claim Is Rejected: Unfortunately, insurance companies routinely attempt to save money by disputing liability and denying valid claims. If necessary, your personal injury attorney will collect evidence that proves another party is responsible for your injuries and apply the proper leverage to get a fair settlement.

Plaxen & Adler's legal team has over 30 years of experience and a reputation throughout the area for providing effective, aggressive representation and ensuring their clients are completely satisfied. Call their offices at (410) 730-7737 to discuss your case and schedule a consultation, or visit their website to find your nearest location today.
