If you have been the victim of an accident that was not your fault, you may be wondering when to hire a personal injury lawyer. The short is – as soon as possible if you are injured and the accident was due to someone else’s negligence. Personal injury claims are complicated, and an experienced attorney will help you navigate the legal process and receive fair compensation. However, hiring a personal injury lawyer is a daunting task, and it can be difficult to start the process. Here are a few considerations as you prepare to make that decision and move forward with your case.
You Have Serious Injuries
There are some accidents where you suffer only minor injuries- or no injuries at all. If you do not need ongoing medical treatment, then hiring an attorney probably isn’t necessary. However, it is crucial to have a thorough evaluation by a qualified medical provider to be sure. Often, there are situations where you feel fine, but there may be internal injuries or other latent disabilities that aren’t immediately clear. Serious injuries can often prevent you from working and may result in significant medical expenses that impact your future and your family’s future. It is recommended to seek legal advice from a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after getting hurt.
Liability is Unclear
Determining fault is an essential part of every personal injury claim. But when an accident involves multiple parties, the responsibility may need to be split among everyone who shares liability for the accident. In these situations, insurance companies jump upon the opportunity to shift as much blame as possible onto the other parties ― including you. A lawyer can protect you from unfair claims of fault. Your personal injury lawyer will talk to insurance companies on your behalf so they can not take advantage of you.
The Insurance Company Denies Your Claim
Insurance companies deny valid claims every day to protect their assets. Therefore, it is very likely that liability for your injury may be disputed or denied entirely. If you don’t have the proper legal assistance you need, you may accept less than your claim is worth. Hiring a personal injury lawyer when an insurance company denies your claim sends a clear message that you intend to stand up for yourself.
