If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be wondering whether you should hire a personal injury attorney to help you with your claim. The decision to hire an attorney is a personal one, but there are some circumstances where it may be wise to do so to protect your interests.
If you’ve been seriously injured in a car accident, bicycle accident, or by a dangerous product, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney. The severity of your injuries is often compounded by large medical bills. Some of these injuries can be permanent and life-altering. In some cases, expert medical evidence is needed to demonstrate the degree of your injury. A personal injury attorney can gather all of the necessary evidence to demonstrate to an insurance company or a jury just how seriously you’ve been injured. The attorney can help ensure that you pursue the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
When the Insurance Company Won’t Pay
In some cases, you may try to handle a claim on your own, but despite the fact that you have medical bills and lost wages, an insurance company fails to offer a fair settlement. An attorney should have extensive experience in dealing with insurance companies and can often help you obtain a settlement.
Product Liability Cases
If you’ve been injured by a dangerous or defective product, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney is crucial. The issues in these cases are often complex, and the defendants involved often have powerful attorneys on their side. A personal injury attorney with expertise in the field of product liability, will have access to resources that can help you with your claim. An attorney will also be able to navigate the issues of who may be liable and for what. These claims are very difficult to handle on your own.
