3 Important Objectives Your Personal Injury Attorney Will Work Toward, Roanoke, Virginia

When someone else's carelessness results in physical injuries and missed work, a personal injury attorney will keep you from having to bear the consequences of their negligence alone. According to The Law Offices of Daniel L. Crandall & Associates in Roanoke, VA, too many victims simply accept the insurance company's first offer under the impression that they'll save money by going at it alone. However, there are many reasons to hire a lawyer instead.

3 Things Your Personal Injury Attorney Will Work Toward

1. Fair Valuation

personal injury attorneyThe insurance company is motivated to pay you as little as possible and might even offer an amount that doesn't cover your medical expenses. A skilled lawyer will know how to properly value your claim, including all of the losses you're entitled to, from pain and suffering to lost enjoyment. Only when you know what your case is worth can you determine whether the insurance company's settlement offer is fair.

2. Prompt Settlement

When accident victims represent themselves, insurance companies sometimes drag out the proceedings in hopes that the plaintiff will simply give up or accept an insufficient offer. When you have a personal injury attorney on your side, however, they're less likely to try these tactics, so you can count on a faster, higher settlement.

3. Proving Liability

In some cases, the insurer might dispute your version of events and deny your claim altogether. Fortunately, an injury attorney will have the investigative resources to prove the liable party's culpability for your injuries and collect enough evidence to convince the insurer to settle.

When you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, trust The Law Offices of Daniel L. Crandall & Associates to help you fight for a fair settlement. With over a century of combined experience behind them, the personal injury attorneys pride themselves on providing aggressive representation and compassionate service to all of their clients.
