Why Should You Hire a Lawyer Instead of Handling It Yourself?

August 17, 2015

After you’ve been in a car accident, or construction accident, or maybe a loved one was hurt by the negligence of another, a million things will be flying through your mind. It can be disorienting, stressful, frustrating and emotionally draining. A lawyer can help to take some of that weight off of your shoulders so that you can continue to live your life with less stress.

When you or a loved one is injured in an accident, the first thing you should do, after getting medical attention, is to consult a reputable personal injury attorney. The sooner you call a lawyer, the sooner they can get to work making sure that you have no problems getting your medical bills for your injuries paid by the party responsible or their insurance company.

Insurance companies will try to avoid paying as much as they can and will delay things while they try to refute your claim. A lawyer can help you get what you need to recover and move on with your life. Not to mention, studies done by the Insurance Research Council have shown that plaintiffs with lawyers typically get bigger settlements; three times as much on average.

The defendant or insurance company in your case will have an attorney. If you go in without representation of your own, you will likely learn the meaning of the old saying “bringing a knife to a gunfight.”

Personal injury issues tend to snowball out of control, making it imperative to get an attorney involved early on.
