If you’ve been hurt by no fault of your own, you deserve compensation for that injury. You shouldn’t have to have to pay medical bills or any other expenses that come up due to the injury you received. It doesn’t matter if it was a car accident, a slip and fall in the grocery store, or even a dangerous product that caused your injury. If someone else is to blame, you deserve to receive financial award for your loss. Of course, you can speak to the insurance company, individual or business on your own, but by hiring a Personal Injury attorney, you can be assured that your rights will be protected and you’ll get the compensation that you are entitled to.
In a perfect world, if you are hurt due to the negligence of someone else, they’d do what’s right and compensate you for injury and in essence, make you whole. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen too often. When the accident occurs, the responsible party may make promises, but as time passes those promises are forgotten and you’re on your own dealing with the liable party or the insurance company. Many people erroneously believe that the insurance company wants to help them. Unfortunately, the truth is that the insurance company wants to pay out as little as possible for your claim. By hiring an experienced Personal Injury attorney, you can be assured that he will not let the insurance company off the hook without paying what you deserve.
Most injury attorneys work on a compensation basis. This means you owe them nothing unless they collect on your case. At that point, when you settle, the attorney will receive a previously agreed percentage of your settlement. Most settlements that involve an attorney are negotiated for a much higher figure than settlements without legal representation, meaning though you will pay the attorney for his services, you will most likely get more money with his representation. This makes it advantageous for both attorney and client.
By hiring an attorney to handle your claim, you will be assured your case is handled properly and nothing is overlooked, taking the stress of you. This allows you to relax and concentrate on healing while your attorney helps you with the rest.
