Not All Personal Injury Cases Require A Lawyer
You do not always need to hire an attorney if your personal injury case is relatively straightforward and not overly complicated. For situations in which the injury was minimal and recovery was quick, or you barely needed to take any time off from work due to the injury, you might elect to prosecute your own case. This is called “pro se” representation and it means that you are choosing to advocate for yourself. Many people have successfully prosecuted their own personal injury cases and won an award.
However, if your injury is severe, someone has died, or an insurance company is involved, you might consider hiring a personal injury attorney to handle the matter for you so you can focus on other things that are important to you. Insurance companies are notorious for being convoluted, confusing and difficult when a claim is filed, and it can be a headache trying to deal with them. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney might be your best option. An attorney can be hired on a contingency basis, which means that you do not pay a fee unless the attorney wins your case. When you win, the attorney’s fee comes out of your award. This type of fee arrangement frees you from the dread of having to pay an attorney, since you pay nothing unless you win.
Let Your Attorney Deal With the Insurance Company
An experienced personal injury attorney knows how to deal with an insurance company. They do it all the time, and know what to expect, what to do and exactly how to do it. Your attorney will likely be dealing with a claims adjuster from the insurance company, who has likely processed hundreds, if not thousands, of personal injury claims. Your attorney should have the experience and knowledge to match wits with the claim adjuster, and should be able to cut through insurance company red tape to get you the information you need and/or payout that you deserve.
You Need to Focus On Getting Your Life Back In Order
By hiring a personal injury attorney, you can free yourself from worrying about how to deal with the legal aspects of your injury. Your attorney will take care of protecting your rights, so that you can focus instead on healing and getting your life back on track. You may need to heal, undergo physical therapy and/or deal with your pain and suffering. It is possible that you may need to repair or replace damaged property. If you are filing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one, you will need time to grieve and deal with the loss of your loved one. Going through the process of notifying agencies and banks of a death takes quite a bit of time and effort, and you shouldn’t be worrying about your lawsuit while you cope with your loss.
