4 Reasons You Need a Personal Injury Attorney
When you are injured in an accident, the first thing that will most likely happen is a visit to the doctor. Tending to any injuries will be the number one priority.
After you receive medical attention, you may begin to realize how quickly your medical bills add up. You may have to go back for follow-up appointments, physical therapy, and medications. In addition, you may be put out of work for a period of time, which then makes those medical bills feel that much more significant.
Many people who are injured in an accident try to handle all of the bills and their injury case on their own because they don’t know that they can get the help of a personal injury attorney. However, having an attorney on your side can give you a much more favorable chance of obtaining compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and physical and emotional damages.
There are many reasons why hiring a personal injury attorney is beneficial to those who have sustained injuries. Here’s what an attorney can do for you:
In order to prove liability in an accident, there is specific evidence that needs to be gathered. Personal injury attorneys do this on a daily basis for their clients and know the ins and outs of what specific evidence is needed to prove a claim. Gathering evidence also takes time and effort, especially if you aren’t familiar with this process. Let your attorney do this work, so you can take that time to heal.
Most people don’t have to deal with insurance companies on a daily basis. However, insurance companies deal with injury victims regularly, and most will attempt to find ways to deny your claim to avoid paying you money. The good news is that one of the jobs of experienced personal injury attorneys is to deal with insurance companies so you don’t have to do it. They will be able to communicate on your behalf and show evidence to get you the best possible settlement.
In the event that your insurance company does not give you a settlement, your case will then go to trial. Don’t worry though - a seasoned personal injury attorney will not back down from fighting for the compensation you need. They will provide you with aggressive representation in order to obtain a fair outcome. Most of the time, having an attorney in your corner can dramatically improve your odds of winning in court.
Many are under the impression that personal injury attorneys are simply after the client’s settlement. However, this is far from the truth. Most injury attorneys, including the ones at Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci, work on contingency fees. This means that we do all the work for our clients free-of-charge and only get a percentage of your settlement if we help you win. That’s right, clients don’t pay unless we help them win their case and they receive compensation.
