When Should I Call a Personal Injury Attorney?, Shelton, Connecticut

If you get an unexpected injury in an accident, you may be wondering whether it’s worth calling an attorney. Since many personal injury lawyers only charge a fee if you receive money, you’ve got nothing to lose by reaching out. And depending on the circumstances, you may have a lot to gain. Here are just a few scenarios in which seeking legal counsel could prove to be invaluable. 

3 Situations in Which You Should Call a Personal Injury Attorney 

1. The Accident Was Preventable 

If you were hurt because of another party’s negligence, you might be able to recover funds for all resulting damages. Since proving liability poses certain challenges, call a lawyer. A seasoned attorney will investigate the accident and then rely on a vast network of legal resources to gather sufficient evidence of fault—all while you are focusing on your health. 

2. The Insurance Adjuster Is Uncooperative 

personal injuryIn some of the more common accident scenarios, injured parties are often inclined to represent themselves. For example, if you were hurt in a car accident, you may simply file the insurance claim on your own. If the opposing party is uncooperative in any way, an attorney can help get the proceedings back on track, protecting your best interests every step of the way. 

3. The Injuries Will Keep You Out of Work 

Roughly 80% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. That means most will struggle financially after missing just one week of work. If this is the position you find yourself in because of unanticipated injuries, a lawyer can determine if you are entitled to compensation for damages like lost income—and then help you pursue it.
