Is It Really Necessary To Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?

Most people have no idea what they need to do after a motor vehicle accident. They may seek medical treatment for their injuries, but be unsure of their next steps. While they are dealing with these injuries, they may get calls from the insurance companies of those involved in the crash.

These companies make an offer that seems pretty good, and you may ask yourself: Do I really need a lawyer to help me with my personal injury or motor vehicle accident case? The answer is an overwhelming yes, for several reasons, which we will discuss below.

Insurance Companies Have A Team Of Attorneys Ready To Fight Your Claims

After an accident, insurance companies immediately get to work evaluating their potential liability in your case. They know exactly what your injuries will cost, and they want to try to get you to settle for less than your claims are worth.

When they call, they may seem like they are truly concerned about your well-being. They may act like they are there to make everything better by offering you this money that you may need quite badly. Know that there is always a catch to these offers, and you should never talk to them without first consulting an attorney. This includes any dealings that you may have with your own insurance company, as they are also most concerned about protecting their bottom line.

Your Claims Are Unique And Need A Comprehensive Review To Determine The Full Value Available

Are you experiencing continued health problems after your crash? Have you missed work because of the injuries you suffered in the accident? Do you have any idea of what your claims are really worth?

So many accident victims fail to understand the true value of their claims, and we do not want you to fall into a similar predicament. Every case is different, and requires an extensive analysis to adequately determine the compensation that you are entitled to for your claims. If you try to handle your case on your own, it is extremely likely that you will receive a settlement that is significantly less than you would have received had you hired an attorney.
