You have been injured, but how do you know if you should hire a personal injury attorney? You may think you can work with the insurance company on your own, but remember that they are for-profit businesses trained to pay out as little as possible. A personal injury attorney has the experience and resources to help you get the most compensation for your injuries and the know-how to make sure you are making all the possible types of claims that apply to your injury and damages.
First, ask yourself these 4 questions:
- Have you been injured in a car, truck, motorcycle, or drunk driving accident?
- Have you been injured from slipping or tripping and falling down, a dog bite, or do you have a permanent scar resulting from an injury?
- Do you have the time and resources to deal with insurance companies on top of your daily responsibilities?
- Even if you have the time (and patience) to deal with the opposing insurance company, how will you know the offer being made to you for this huge interruption of your entire life is a fair offer?
It is the answer to the fourth question that makes all the difference.
If the accident injury is not affecting your usual life routine, then you likely do not need to hire an injury attorney. At Carrollton Injury Law, the initial claim evaluation call is free, and if we decide not to work together, we will give you some pointers as to how to handle the injury claim yourself.
However, if the accident injury is affecting your sleep, affecting your job, affecting your family, or decreasing your quality of life at all, then it is highly likely that you need an injury attorney involved, the sooner the better.
You’ve been injured in an accident, now what?
No matter how you sustained your injuries, get medical treatment as soon as possible. Getting medical treatment puts you on the road to recovery faster, as well as establishes documentation to the opposing insurance company via medical records that you have an injury with pain and limitations. If you wait to go to the doctor, then the insurance company will presume you were not hurt in the accident.
Need a doctor? We can help you find medical experts that will not charge you up front for the care you need now. They will agree to receive payment once we reach an injury settlement on your behalf.
Contacting a personal injury lawyer ASAP, like Carrollton Injury Law, can help expedite the payment of your claims – and remember, you do not pay us until we win. There is no up-front cost to hire us and never anything out of your pocket.
How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help You?
You may think it would be easy to handle your injury claim on your own, or that the insurance company will take care of you. Make no mistake, insurance companies are businesses seeking to make profit. They are looking to make the most money possible, which means paying out as little as possible in insurance claims. A personal injury lawyer uses their expertise to efficiently gather data and evidence to demand the insurance companies pay what the client deserves so the insurance company does not profit further at your expense.
