When it comes to a personal injury case, you may not know when you should call a lawyer. You might think it is too early or too late. We are here to help you decide when to contact a personal injury attorney. Keep reading for more information.
When It’s Essential to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
The first thing to consider is that the insurance company is looking out for its own bottom line and no matter what they tell you, if you have been injured, they are not going to help you to make a claim. The insurance company is going to be looking for whatever information they can get to use against you to deny the claim or to reduce the amount they are going to offer you. A personal injury attorney, on the other hand, is there to serve your interests only so you should contact one as soon as possible following the incident. In fact, the best time to talk to an attorney would be before you talk to the insurance company. A good personal injury attorney will be able to spot any potential issues and give advice about how best to handle the claim.
It is true that if you end up hiring the attorney, that the attorney will charge you a fee, but most of the time that fee is going to be a percentage of what is recovered from the insurance company. This means you do not have to pay anything out of pocket to the attorney. More times than not, a skilled personal injury attorney is going to be able to get you more compensation in your pocket even after the attorney’s percentage, than if you try to handle it on your own. Aside from the attorney having the experience and legal expertise to know how best to portray your case, often times when you try to represent yourself, you become overwhelmed and emotional. When that happens, you might not be able to accurately and efficiently represent yourself. The insurance company will use anything to its advantage so if you say the wrong thing or give them something that you do not have to, it could seriously jeopardize your case. Even if you think the personal injury lawyer’s fee is going to be too much, it is important to at least speak with one first. You should also consider the value instead of your mental state and comfort. You are already going through a lot emotionally and representing yourself can be frustrating and place more strain on you. The peace of mind alone often justifies any fee for the personal injury attorney.
