What does a personal injury attorney have to offer you when you're injured?
Frankly, just about everything. When you're suffering from a serious injury and you're worried about your job, your bills and your family, it's very difficult to keep everything in perspective. You're already overwhelmed -- which makes it easy for an insurance company to take advantage of you.
1. You can get an objective take on your situation.
Not every personal injury claim needs a lawsuit -- nor is every injury truly the result of negligence. When you're caught up in the situation, it can be difficult to have the perspective you need to make a wise decision. An attorney can advise you whether or not you should take the claim to court or accept a settlement.
2. You don't have to fend off the insurance company's demands.
Insurance companies are in the game to make money, not pay fair compensation to victims. The complicated hoops and red tape that they try to put someone through can mysteriously disappear once an attorney gets involved because an attorney knows what is actually legally required (and not).
3. You don't have to negotiate on your own for a fair settlement.
The vast majority of personal injury claims end in negotiated settlements. Very few injury victims are in the best position to negotiate for themselves. The insurance company will have professionals -- both adjusters and attorneys -- involved on their side of things, so it only makes sense to head to the negotiating table equally prepared and defended.
Our office is responsive to the needs of our clients and will fight for a fair settlement -- not just whatever the insurance company wants to offer. For more information, please explore our site further or contact us directly.
