Why Hire An Injury Attorney?

Reasons for hiring a lawyer after an accident

If you've been hurt and you're on this page, you likely have three main questions:

  1. Why should I hire an attorney?
  2. Can't I just handle the case myself with the help of my insurance?
  3. If I hire an attorney, why should I hire you?

Let's walk through these one at a time.

Why Should I Hire An Attorney?

You should hire an attorney to help with your injury case because doing so means:

Less hassle and paperwork for you: The most important thing after an injury should be your health. But if you're trying to file court papers, collect medical records, correspond with insurance companies and conduct all of the other business that comes along with recovering compensation for your injury, you're focusing on many other things.

When you hire an attorney, you get back to what matters most - making as full a recovery as possible - while we handle all of the paperwork and other items that need to be addressed.

You won't overlook anything: Do you know how long you have to file an injury claim? Or what evidence you will need to have documented to prove your claim? What happens if you miss a detail in the filing? Or, worse, if you wait too long and can't even file a claim?

These questions highlight one important truth about injury claims - they are complicated. When your ability to get the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills and other expenses associated with your injury is at stake, you don't want to chance that you are missing any details. Once an experienced attorney is on your case, you don't have to worry about those details anymore, and you can trust that your case is in good hands.

Your claim will be properly valued: Write down how much you think your case is worth. Now, look very closely at that number, and think about this question - how did I arrive at that number? Was it based on a feeling? Does it "just seem right or fair?" Did you do some online research about cases, and this seems to fit with those numbers?

If you answered yes to any of these, cross out the number you wrote down. Compensation injury cases are very situation-specific, and feelings of fairness or comparisons to other online cases will not adequately value your claim.

An attorney who has worked on these types of cases for years will be better able to make sure your claim is valued properly because he or she knows about things such as how juries view certain cases in your area, what tactics insurance companies use to drive down the value of claims and other related information that is important to an accurate valuation of your case.

Can't I Just Work With My Insurance Agent To Figure All Of This Out?

Even though you pay insurance premiums to your insurance carrier, helping you is not its main priority. Protecting its bottom line and making its shareholders/owners happy is. How does an insurance company do that? It offers you just enough compensation to make you think you're getting a good deal, gets you to sign a release form so that you can't seek more compensation, and then it pays you the lower amount so that your claim goes away for less than it's worth.

Now, think about an attorney you have hired. Who was his or her loyalty to in your case? You, and only you. Your attorney's job is to make sure that your interests are protected and that you receive the full amount of compensation you need to be made whole after an injury.
