If you are wondering if you need a personal injury lawyer, you may want to ask yourself:
- Am I dealing with medical malpractice?
- Am I dealing with an unfair settlement from my insurance company?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions, then it’s best to seek guidance from a personal injury lawyer. Personal injury lawyers have invaluable insight and are worth every penny. Here are some instances when you should hire a personal injury lawyer to help you.
When Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Long-Term or Permanently Disabling Injuries
If you’ve been in an accident that has significantly affected your health or physical capabilities for over a year or permanently, it’s time to take action. Figuring out how much such a serious injury is worth can be a complex task. You will not want to risk taking that into your own hands. You’ll probably require some assistance from an experienced personal injury lawyer to get the most out of your claim.
If you are suffering through an illness or injury due to incompetent, careless, treatment at the hands of a medical provider, both the legal rules and medical questions involved are complex. For these instances, you will require a lawyer who is experienced in medical malpractice cases.
If an Insurance Company Refuses to Pay
In some cases, you should hire a lawyer because an insurance company or government agency refuses to make a fair settlement offer. That even happens regardless of the nature of your injury or the total monetary amount of your medical bills and lost income. In these instances, the amount of money that the lawyer can get, minus the fee charged to get it, is better than nothing.
