PERSONAL INJURY GENERAL LIABILITY
If you are reading this because you have been injured in an accident, you are probably confused and a bit frightened by the prospects of filing a personal injury claim. Chances are you have never filed a claim before and you are nervous because you don’t really know what to do.
If you are not familiar with the insurance process or personal injury law in general, pursuing compensation for injuries and losses you have sustained as a result of someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior can seem like a daunting task. Indeed, there is a lot that can go wrong.
It is, therefore, extremely important that you find a personal injury lawyer whom you are comfortable with, and more importantly, whom you know has the experience and expertise to help you pursue your claim successfully.
Do You Need to Hire an Injury Attorney Immediately?
One of the first questions you might have after being injured in an accident is whether or not it is necessary for you to hire an injury attorney immediately. In some cases, it’s extremely important, and in other cases, it can wait.
If you have been involved in a minor car accident where there was very little damage to your car and you have suffered no serious injuries, you may not need to hire a lawyer at all.
However, if you have sustained significant damage to your vehicle, a serious injury, and/or liability for the accident is being questioned, you need to get an attorney involved as soon as possible.
If you are still not sure if you need a lawyer to handle your claim, consult with a qualified personal injury attorney who can review the facts of your case and let you know whether or not it’s ok for you to go it alone.
Don’t Rely on the Insurance Company
There are many intricacies to a personal injury claim and the responsible party’s insurance company will use their knowledge of the law and vast resources to take advantage of the situation. So, never trust the insurance company to treat you fairly.
The insurance company’s main priority is to maximize their profits by minimizing the value of your claim. In fact, as you are reading this, the insurance adjuster assigned to your case is probably already gathering statements and collecting evidence to reduce or deny your claim.
For this reason, it is highly recommended that you at least contact an attorney for a consultation to determine if there is anything he or she can do to protect your interest and preserve the value of your case.
