Is It Worth Hiring an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney?

Why Should I Hire an Attorney?


It is common knowledge that lawyers can be expensive. If you have been injured, you may be wondering if you can just work out your personal injury claim yourself and keep that contingency fee. However, hiring a lawyer can have several benefits including a larger settlement. Dedicated PI attorneys work on s PI cases at least 40 hours a week every week if not more. That experience can and will pay off.

Experience means bigger settlement.

Accident victims of hire attorneys receive larger settlements than those who chose the DIY route. The road to a winning PI claim is full pitfalls. You may not know at all what your settlement is worth. An attorney with experience in dozens of cases can tell you what your settlement should look like. An attorney will also know that the opposing party could offer you a sparkly offer at the beginning of the case that will end up being much too low to cover your loss. Your attorney will know how to get you the money you deserve.

Lawyers speak legal jargon better than you do.

Any legal claim is mired in big words, weird procedures, and intimidating paperwork. I think the lawyers I know actually like paperwork. If however, you do not like filling in spreadsheets and typing up reports with strict attention to minute details, an attorney can help you navigate the red tape and moving hoops of a PI claim.

An attorney will advocate for you in ways you did not know you needed.

Have you heard of Personal Injury Protection? Did you know you were entitled to it at the beginning of the process? Your attorney would. Your attorney knows more about the law than you (insurance adjusters not included) and that knowledge could really help you get a better settlement.
