When You May Need a Personal Injury Attorney, Dothan, Alabama

When you’re hurt due to someone else’s negligence, their insurance company may give you an offer before the wounds have fully healed. While accepting this may simplify a daunting process, it may also leave you without enough to cover the medical expenses, let alone your lost wages and other damages. Before speaking with insurers, speak with an accomplished personal injury attorney.

When to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

You’ve Been Seriously Hurt

Insurance settlements are final. Once you accept an offer, you won’t be able to sue for further damages, even if the injuries are worse than they initially appeared. Based on their experience with similar cases and legal knowledge, a personal injury attorney can accurately evaluate the damages and determine a fair settlement amount that includes the cost of future treatment.

Liability Is Difficult to Determine

personal injuryIn some instances, determining who is at fault for your injuries is straightforward. Perhaps a driver ran a red light and caused a car accident or someone’s pet attacked you. However, many cases are more complex, especially if the other party accuses you of causing the accident. With their investigative resources, personal injury firms can reconstruct the accident and prove liability.

The Claim Has Been Denied

To lower costs, insurance companies routinely deny valid claims in the hopes that victims will abandon the case. An experienced attorney can leverage the threat of an expensive lawsuit to bring insurers back to the negotiating table and compel them to make a fair settlement offer.
