Reasons to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

hire a lawyer after an accidentThe moments, days and months following an accident can be overwhelming. You may be wondering if you need to hire a personal injury lawyer or if you can file a claim on your own.

Although there is no requirement that you hire a personal injury lawyer to handle your claim, there are certain situations in which it is in your best interest to have an experienced professional by your side.

Extensive Injuries

The amount of compensation your claim may be worth is determined based on the severity of your injuries. This is determined based on the types of injuries you sustained, the amount of time it will take to recover and the amount of medical bills that are associated with your injuries.

Naturally, more severe injuries will require more medical care, which can add up. In these situations, it is vital to have an experienced lawyer by your side who can help negotiate the maximum amount of compensation you need to cover your medical expenses.

Medical Malpractice

The laws and regulations surrounding medical malpractice claims are particularly complex. If you have been injured because of a medical professional’s carelessness, negligence or incompetence, you should not attempt to bring a medical malpractice claim without the help of an experienced lawyer.

Disputes with the Insurance Company

Often, the insurance company will do everything it can to pay out as little as possible for your claim. Sometimes, this is taken to the extreme in cases in which the insurance provider wrongfully refuses to pay a claim, delays payment of a claim or completely denies a valid claim. In these instances, it is in your best interest to have an experienced lawyer by your side.
