When Do You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?, Indianola, Iowa

After an injury caused by someone else’s negligence, the liable party’s insurer may approach you with a settlement offer before you’ve even left the hospital. While the process may seem straightforward, these initial settlement offers may be insufficient to cover your medical expenses, let alone your lost wages and other damages. In many cases, collecting the compensation you deserve requires the expertise of a skilled personal injury attorney.

When Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

After an Auto Accident

personal injury attorneyNearly 2.5 million Americans are injured in traffic accidents every year, many caused by the careless actions of other drivers. The injuries from these accidents can be grave, resulting in substantial medical bills and loss of wages. Unless your injuries are very minor, you should always consult a personal injury attorney after an accident.

After an Injury on Someone Else’s Property

Every property owner is obligated to provide a safe environment for anyone who is on the premises legally. If you’ve slipped and fallen in a store aisle or fallen down a flight of stairs, a personal injury attorney will help determine fault and help you collect compensation for your losses.

Liability Is Unclear

One of the most challenging aspects of a personal injury claim is determining who is legally responsible, especially when a business is involved. For instance, if you sustain an injury in a commercial environment, the company itself and the owner of the property may each be held accountable for your losses.
