If you’ve been in an accident, you’re probably dealing with a flood of emotions. Hiring a personal injury attorney may be the last thing on your mind, but in many cases it is crucial to do so, and soon! Below we provide you with 5 reasons why you might want to rethink hiring a personal injury attorney:
Accidents resulting in injury are highly emotional situations. You need a personal injury attorney can help you stay on track when it comes to your legal claim while you work through the frustration, anger, uncertainty, and other strong emotions that you might be feeling. In this way, the attorney can serve as an objective third party to provide clarity for decisions and to be a voice of reason when we are unable to think straight due to our emotional ties to the case.
Understanding the ins and outs of the law is no easy task. That’s why a personal injury attorney spends years of his life studying the law. The mountains of paperwork and confusing terminology might seem daunting to the average Joe, but to attorneys it is what they know. This brings me to my third point . . .
Knowing the law, and not having to spend hours researching every step, can save a ton of time. Personal injury attorneys know the legal process (what needs done when), and they can make sure that things keep moving along with timely submissions and quick responses. Time is money, and we know that you want your settlement sooner rather than later . . . using an attorney can help make this happen.
4. Larger Settlement
If you are looking to obtain the maximum settlement for your claim, a personal injury attorney is a must. They know what you should be able to expect, and they can bring up long-term effects that you may not have even considered on your own accord. They also know the tactics of the insurance companies, so you can avoid being swindled out of the money that you deserve.
“Based on a 1999 study by the Insurance Research Council, the average person receives a settlement 3 ½ times larger with legal assistance than without it.” (Link)
