Much like the injury that’s brought you to this page, the decision to hire or forgo the help of an attorney is personal. You might have a number of reasons for going it alone, but before you commit to that route, be sure to learn about the lesser-known benefits of having a personal injury lawyer in your corner.
Let’s explore the five most invaluable and overlooked benefits of hiring a personal injury lawyer to handle your personal injury claim.
One of the biggest hesitations about hiring a personal injury lawyer is the cost, and understandably so; who wants to pay more money when they’re already missing work or accruing medical bills from the injury itself? But what many people don’t realize is that most personal injury lawyers won’t charge anything upfront, or anything at all for that matter, unless they help you win your case. Once you’ve accepted a fair settlement offer, a small percentage of it will be taken by the lawyer in exchange for the time and effort they spent on your case.
If you’ve dealt with an illness or injury before, chances are you tried one or more treatment plans before finding the one you actually needed all along. You might have even been misdiagnosed the first time around. In addition to draining your wallet and mental health, this can prolong and/or limit the extent of your physical recovery.
You might assume that a lawyer will play no role in your physical recovery, but you’d be wrong. This is because experienced personal injury lawyers will have handled cases similar to yours, and will therefore have a good idea about the type of care you need, and more importantly, which medical professionals are capable of providing it. It’s critical to receive the right medical treatment as soon as possible after an injury, and the right lawyer can help you do that.
It doesn’t matter how strong or resilient you are; dealing with the aftermath of someone else’s negligence can be overwhelming and frustrating. Without even realizing it, most people wrestle with these emotions while simultaneously trying to keep the composure necessary to efficiently prove their personal injury claim. However, they don’t expect to face powerful insurance companies and their adjusters who will go to great lengths to disprove their claim, including but not limited to accusations of malingering (i.e. faking your injury!).
This is where the assistance of a highly qualified personal injury lawyer who’s determined to fight for your rights becomes truly invaluable. A lawyer of this caliber can handle these communications for you, so that you don’t make any costly mistakes along the way, and so that you can simply focus on what matters most: getting better and back on your feet so you can move on with life.
A well-established personal injury lawyer will have numerous connections with experts who can prove critical to your case, whether it’s an accident reconstructionist, an investigator who will enforce honesty and fairness from the defendant(s), or a wide range of other lawyers who practice areas of the law which are different from but pertinent to your personal injury claim.
It’s a statistical fact: claimants who are represented by a lawyer are offered higher settlement amounts than those who try to represent themselves. This means that you will walk away with more money than you would have, had you chosen to fight your case by yourself – and this accounts for the attorney’s fee too.
Whether it’s you or a loved one who has been injured as a result of someone else’s wrongdoing, it’s paramount to consider these five benefits before making a decision about whether to hire a personal injury lawyer or take on the burdensome task of handling it alone.
