Why Hire a Lawyer?
Many people fail to pursue their right to fair compensation because they feel intimidated by the legal process or don’t think they can afford to hire accident injury lawyers. However, it’s common in the field of personal injury for lawyers to offer free case evaluations and accept cases on contingency. This means that you don’t pay any legal fees until your case settles successfully.
A serious injury can have long-term effects on your life, especially because you have no way to anticipate these events. You may be unable to work for months or even sustain permanent disability. When you can’t work, you can’t pay your medical bills or other everyday expenses.
You stand a much greater chance of winning your lawsuit when you retain qualified, experienced accident injury lawyers. Another complex aspect of personal injury lawsuits is that laws vary greatly by state. For example, some states prevent injured people from filing a lawsuit if they bear any responsibility for their own injuries. Other states require you to prove that the other party is 51% or more responsible to make a claim. Personal injury attorneys are intimately acquainted with all laws pertaining to your case.
The second thing to remember is that insurance companies are usually more interested in protecting their financial interests than offering a fair settlement to injured people. It is too easy for the other party’s insurance representative to bully you when you’re representing yourself. Personal injury attorneys know how to negotiate to ensure that you receive the best possible settlement.
