Why is Having a Personal Injury Lawyer Important?

If you have recently been injured as a result of an unexpected accident, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed, and as if your world has been turned upside down. Depending on the severity of your injury, you might be unable to work or enjoy many of your normal daily activities, and you may need long-term medical treatment. You probably also have plenty of worries and questions, like:

  • How will I continue to provide for myself and my family?
  • When will my life return to normal?
  • Am I entitled to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for my injury?
  • If so, is it important to hire a personal injury lawyer? 

This last question is an important one, and as an injury victim seeking to move forward with your life, you deserve answers. Hiring a personal injury lawyer is important for any number of reasons. A few of the most important include: 

  • UNDERSTANDING YOUR RIGHTS AND PURSUING MAXIMUM COMPENSATION: The practice of law is often complicated – and personal injury law is no different. In the vast majority of personal injury cases, there are a variety of damages available. You may qualify for damages that include past, current, and future medical treatment, damages for lost wages or anticipated future earnings, damages for pain and suffering, and other out-of-pocket expenses. A personal injury lawyer who understands the law will be able to advise you as to what damages may be available in your case, and help you craft the best legal strategy to pursue those damages. 
  • THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATING YOUR CLAIM: A knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to listen to your story, and let you know what important steps you need to take to thoroughly investigate and gather evidence to support your claim. Medical records, eyewitness statements, photographs, and various other types of documentation and evidence may need to be collected in your case – and it’s best not to waste any time. A personal injury lawyer can take the necessary steps to thoroughly investigate your claim, and help you put your best foot forward as you prepare to seek the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. 
  • NEGOTIATING WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES AND OPPOSING COUNSEL: Insurance companies, like most businesses, want to make a profit. As a result, they’re often likely to offer you the lowest amount possible on your claim – and that’s not what you deserve. A talented personal injury attorney will know the tactics often used by insurance companies – and the best way to fight back against them. 
  • SAVING MONEY AND REDUCING STRESS: All too often, victims of personal injury accidents make the mistake of attempting to represent themselves to save money. In fact, the result is often the opposite. Legal matters can be very complex, and without even realizing it, by representing yourself you may overlook an important legal right or fail to seek specific damages that you might be entitled to. It may cost you more in the long run to fix these unintentional errors than it would to hire an attorney in the first place. Don’t make this mistake.
