Statistics prove that you are more likely to receive a larger settlement when you are represented by a respected personal injury attorney. When you are injured in an accident, you probably will not know exactly what to do. Most people are afraid to take legal action and be labeled frivolous, but you should not have to live in pain and foot the bill for someone else’s negligence. That is not fair or just. Insurance companies will not pay you what your case is worth without a fight. They may even outright deny your claim. A personal injury lawyer’s job is to help you get the amount you deserve.
Often, people are under the impression that they can simply negotiate with an insurance company on their own. The insurance company is not looking out for your best interests; adjusters are trained to avoid paying you the full amount at all costs to ensure that the company remains profitable. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows your legal rights. He or she can stand up to the insurance companies on your behalf and prevent you from being taken advantage of.
Many people who are injured by negligence do not believe that their case is significant enough to warrant a personal injury lawsuit. However, if you are involved in a serious auto accident, you are likely to be paid significant damages over the rest of your lifetime, when you consider all your current and future medical bills, lost wages, and reduced earning potential. All those damages can be sought in a lawsuit. You can also seek compensation for non-economic damages, known as pain and suffering, to account for the emotional effects of the accident, the loss of enjoyment of your daily activities, and chronic physical pain from injuries. Your spouse can possibly recover loss of consortium. These are all damages that personal injury attorneys are very familiar with. You absolutely must have legal representation.
It is a little-known fact that you can potentially recover damages even for auto accidents where you were the only person involved in the crash. The at-fault party could be the car manufacturer or even the city you were driving in. If you were injured in a one-car accident, a personal injury attorney can help you identify the party who was at fault and guide you to recover the amount of compensation you need to be able to heal and recover.
