When an individual has a personal injury, the event triggers a complex series of activities and experiences. Unplanned trips to hospitals and doctors, lost time from work, rearranging of family schedules, and pain are among the disruptions. How do you cope with these changes? Here’s how an attorney can help.
Why Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
1. Protect Your Rights & Interests
Insurance companies spend millions of dollars each year to avoid paying claims. Personal injury attorneys know the law and how it applies to an injured person’s particular situation. When you hire an experienced lawyer, you’ll have an advocate devoted to protecting and fighting for your rights.
2. Take Pressure Off You
Personal injury claims involve paperwork and processes that may be unfamiliar to you. A skilled attorney will explain the various procedures, gather evidence, and prepare and file documents needed to pursue your claim effectively. The lawyer’s attention to this detailed work lets you focus on getting well.
3. Get Help Without Upfront Payment
While you recover from injuries or temporary disability, you may not be able to work, and expenses will pile up. Personal injury lawyers take cases on a contingent fee basis, meaning there is no payment to them upfront. Clients pay attorney fees only when they obtain settlements or court awards for money damages. In this way, you get professional legal help without straining your finances.
