Free Case Consultation
If you have been injured because of someone else's negligence, you have reasonable grounds for a personal injury case. The question then becomes, is it worth acting on, and if so, what type of action.
If your injury did not require a visit to the doctor, and healed on its own in a few days, it may not be worth your time to act.
If your injury was more significant, and required you to miss work, or schedule an appointment with your doctor, then acting makes sense. For small claims where the loss was hundreds of dollars, handling the matter on your own usually makes the most sense.
When your injury has made a substantial impact on your life, not only do you likely have a claim, but you should also consider seeking the counsel of an experienced injury attorney.
Conversely, handling your own case puts you in total control. And, if you can achieve the results that an attorney could, you could hang onto the money that would have otherwise gone to your attorney.
At a high level, a personal injury attorney levels the playing field, and makes sure that insurance companies do the right thing - pay victims the money they are entitled to for their losses.
Looking at the role of a personal injury attorney more granularly, they help injury victims gain access to appropriate medical care and see to it that the, obtain reimbursement for financial losses such as missed work, make sure that future expenses are accounted for if long term care is required, or the injury negatively impacts future earnings, carries many of the stresses following an accident.
Without an attorney, insurance companies use varying tactics to keep from paying injury victims what they deserve. They will make low-ball settlement offers or refuse to play at all.
A personal injury claim is a claim made against an insurance provider for damages suffered. It is a claim for financial reimbursement for your losses that came because of the accident, and for any future ramifications.
