4 Reasons To Speak With a Personal Injury Attorney, Union, Ohio

If you’ve been hurt due to another’s negligence or intent, you have cause to file a personal injury claim. However, it’s rarely wise to go on this journey alone. When you speak with an experienced attorney first, they’ll offer you the following advantages that will increase your chances of fair compensation.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

1. Ensure You Have a Legitimate Case

Talk to a personal injury attorney before filing to make certain you have a case. While most intentional and negligence-based injuries call for insurance claims, not all apply.

For example, if you get hit by another driver but live in a no-fault state such as Massachusetts or Kentucky, you must file with your own insurance carrier. There are also workplace injuries that are exempt from claim filings, including those resulting from drug use, alcohol intoxication, or employee roughhousing.

2. File All Paperwork Correctly

Your attorney will have the knowledge and experience to file all documents quickly and without errors. Otherwise, proceedings may be delayed and possibly impact your monetary compensation.

3. Gather the Right Evidence

Work with an attorney to obtain the evidence your claim needs to succeed. Lawyers frequently hire investigative teams to interview witnesses, photograph the incident scene, and examine all evidence from a technical standpoint. Be forthright about the events leading up to your injury, as your attorney may point out evidence you were unaware of.

4. Negotiate With Applicable Parties

Rely on your lawyer to negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance carrier, your employer, or any other business or individual involved in your case. Insurance companies will do everything they can to pay the lowest amount, something an experienced attorney will fight hard to avoid.

Your lawyer will also help you file an appeal with the opposing insurance company if your case is dismissed and provide objective advice so you don’t make decisions based on anger and frustration.
