re you thinking about trying to pursue a personal injury claim yourself after an accident? If so, it’s important you understand that the legal procedure for doing this is extremely complex.

Navigating this area of law without proper legal counsel will likely result in an unfair settlement. You also risk getting taken advantage of by insurance companies.

If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of an auto accident or dog bite where negligence was a factor, you deserve compensation for your injuries.

You need a qualified personal injury lawyer to help protect your rights.

Let’s break down how an attorney can make a difference.

They Know What Your Case is Worth

A huge benefit of working with an injury lawyer is they can evaluate your case and know what it’s worth. If you try to do this yourself, you’ll just be guessing.

An attorney will look at your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering along with other details of your case in order to come to an accurate amount you should fight for.

If you don’t know what your case is worth, it’s easy for an insurance company to pressure you into settling for an amount far less than you deserve.

They Handle All the Paperwork

After an injury, you’re likely bogged down with financial issues, medical appointments, and arrangements with your employer for time off work. You need experienced counsel to handle the critical paperwork for your case.

This isn’t just a matter of convenience. Going through the evidence of your case requires a trained eye. This includes police reports, witness testimony, medical documentation and more.

An injury lawyer will take care of any court filings and stay on top of deadlines. They’ll also work with the insurance company representing the other party.

Experience with Personal Injury Law

A major benefit of working with an attorney is they’ve likely seen cases like yours and know the best approach to take. They can effectively negotiate on your behalf and fight for the settlement you deserve.

If the case needs to go trail, they have the courtroom experience required to stand a chance against insurance companies. If you try to do this yourself, you risk losing out on thousands of dollars.

An experienced attorney also understands the statute of limitations on injury cases along with the correct procedure for filing forms and legal documents.

They’re Motivated to Help You Win

Most injury lawyers will fight for you on a contingency fee basis. This means they only get paid after a successful settlement on your behalf.

What does this mean for you? It means the attorney you hire will be motivated to get the best possible settlement, either through negotiation or litigation.

It also means you don’t pay attorney fees out of pocket. This is a perfect situation if you’re dealing with expensive medical bills and lost wages.

And after all, there’s no reason not to consult with a lawyer about your car accident. They won’t charge you any money upfront; in fact, most attorneys won’t take any money from you at all unless and until they win your case.

These professionals undergo years of education and on-the-job training, so they have knowledge and experience that a layperson simply doesn’t have. That means they can advise you on legal matters that you might have even known existed!

Let a Personal Injury Lawyer Protect Your Rights

You’re in an extremely vulnerable position after a serious injury. Don’t jump at a chance to take the first offer an insurance company makes. It’s likely they’re attempting to take advantage of you.

Instead, let an experienced personal injury attorney fight for your rights and well-being.
