Personal Injury Legal Practice
Never underestimate the benefits of working closely with an experienced personal injury lawyer — at times, the very threat to an insurance company will help deliver the results you expect.
There is great peace of mind in knowing that you are not alone, that you have someone to help you manage all of the paperwork requirements of your case. You have a team fighting for your best interest, with years of experience managing personal injury claims properly and professionally.
Your lawyer represents your future by working with you to help right the wrongs you have suffered in the past.
You may need a lawyer because of complex legal rules involved in your specific case, or because the severity of your injuries may push the compensation you are entitled to above the average amount typically awarded in similar cases.
To be aware of these details, how they affect you, and the precedents that guide them, you need an expert who has experience working with insurance companies and who understands how they think and act when it comes to personal injury lawsuits.
Permanently Disabling Injuries or Long-Term
Some accidents result in injuries that significantly affect your physical capabilities, appearance, or psychological well-being for a long time, perhaps longer than a year, or in some cases permanently. Figuring out how much an injury such as this is worth can be very difficult, and often timely.
This is another reason to hire an attorney who is willing to take the time to understand the details of your case and fight to get the most out of your claim.
The actual dollar amount of accident compensation is primarily determined by the severity of injuries. Time lost at work, or income loss, due to the injury is also a factor taken into consideration when determining the amount of a judgement.
The severity of your injuries is usually measured by the amount of your medical bills, the type of injuries sustained and the length of time it takes for you to recover. As the amount of your potential compensation increases, the range within which that compensation may fall becomes wider. In these cases, it is usually worth the additional cost of hiring a lawyer to guide you through the necessary steps of recovering lost expenses, while working to make sure you receive compensation, or benefits, at the highest end of the range when compared to similar cases.
What if an Insurance Company Refuses to Pay?
What do you when the other side refuses to pay their fair share?
In some cases, regardless of the nature of the injury, the amount in medical bills, your pain and suffering, or lost income, you should consider hiring a lawyer because you could be dealing with an insurance company that refuses to make a fair offer.
In these cases, the only way to get something at all may be to hire a lawyer who knows how to leverage your case and the law to bring a settlement that brings you some measure of compensation.
