Why You Need to Hire a Lawyer When You Are Injured

Too often injured people think they can handle the case by themselves. Their injuries, they think, are not that serious and, after all, they have insurance. The insurance company will negotiate with them and they will get a fair settlement. They are often wrong! 

From medical malpractice to a car accident to a dog bite, you have a legal right to recover
compensation when you are injured as a result of someone else's careless action. Most often the compensation comes from settling the claim out of court, but often you find yourself in a situation when you need to make a personal injury claim, that is to file a complaint in court and you need to hire an attorney.

Many people are reluctant to hire a lawyer for injuries that they think are minor. For example, if you are in a car accident that is not your fault and you have a bruise on your arm and few scrapes, you may not think it is worthwhile to hire a personal injury lawyer. Then, if the other driver's insurance company makes you an offer to pay your medical bills and give you a few hundred dollars on top of that, you think it may not be worth the hassle of finding a good lawyer. But you could be wrong because there are a few reasons why you might consider making a phone call or scheduling a consultation with our offices, even for seemingly minor injuries. First of all, minor injuries may, and can, turn into major ones. If, for example, your injury turns out to be worse than you and your doctor thought and you have already accepted a settlement offer, there is nothing you can do about it since you have given up your rights to any future claim. A good lawyer will advise you to wait until you
know the full extent of your injuries and would help you determine the right time and the right offer to accept. Also, you may be entitled to pain and suffering for your damages, those kinds of settlement issues would be considered by a jury if your case went to court, and your lawyer will explain all of the kinds of damages you may be entitled to, even if the injury seems minor at first, he will advocate on behalf of you to make sure you receive a fair and just and satisfactory settlement.

Of course, if your injuries are serious there should be no question that you should call our office and come in for a free consultation. That is because we can help you make sure you get the full spectrum of damages you are entitled to. We have negotiated on behalf of thousands of injured people and assisted them in receiving the maximum recovery allowed by law. The insurance companies know who we are and, when we are by your side, they will take your claim very seriously.

We often hear people say that they do not want to hire a lawyer because they have insurance or that the other party who injured them has insurance. It is a fallacy and really quite naive to think that the insurance company is there to look out for you and for your interest. Often times the insurance
company's interests are at odds with your own because you have a primary goal of getting a fair and just damage award for all that you have been put through, your loss of wages, your pain and your suffering and, perhaps, the permanency of your injury, where the insurance company has a primary goal of paying out as little as possible so that they, in their business, may make the most profits that
they can.

There is no question that if you are injured by someone's carelessness, whether it is a doctor or a negligent driver, you need to call us, come in and see us, and we can discuss the way to proceed so that you are protected and that your injury may be fairly compensated.
