Three Things You Need to Know if You’ve Suffered an Injury
If you’ve suffered an injury, there’s a chance that you’ve thought about whether or not you need to hire a lawyer. Many people believe that hiring a lawyer in a personal injury case isn’t necessary, since most cases — 95% to 96% of personal injury never see the inside of a courtroom. The whole process of the injury, recovery, and getting compensation can be tough to muddle through, so here are some answers to questions that people commonly have after suffering an injury.
When do you call a personal injury attorney?
This is probably one of the most common questions that people have. It’s always a good idea to call a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can after the injury occurs. If you have filed an insurance claim and it has been denied, you definitely need to call a lawyer. Generally in any case, the earlier you call a lawyer the better.
What do personal injury attorneys do?
Personal injury lawyers aren’t just for fighting cases in court when they go to trial. They do, which is why half of plaintiffs who go to court during a personal injury lawsuit actually win, but they do other things too. Aside from offering you counsel and representation, lawyers can help you manage paperwork and forms, negotiate with insurance companies, and help you keep track of the expenses that you may be compensated for.
Do I really need a personal injury lawyer?
It’s generally a good idea to have a lawyer by your side but if you’re going for a very large personal injury settlement, have had a claim denied, or are for certain going to court over a personal injury you really need to have a lawyer’s help. It’s not something you should do on your own and not having a lawyer could cost you the compensation you deserve.
