Personal injury (e.g., car, bus, motorcycle, or truck accidents) and wrongful death cases are often complex. While the laws are designed to offer relief to the victims of each accident, the surest way to achieve fair compensation is through an attorney with experience in the area. Some of the most important reasons to seek help from an attorney are:
1- Accident and injury compensation laws are not simple and vary state by state. In addition, these types of cases generally face difficult trials if the laws are not well understood.
2- Not having the help of a lawyer can end up being more costly. Remember that the primary purpose of personal injury claims is to receive benefits that compensate you for your loss of either property or health. This compensation can provide money for lost wages, coverage for therapies, medications, medical consultations, etc.
3- Attorneys are skilled at contesting evidence. Without proper legal training, you may not be able to know if the key evidence against you was improperly obtained or if a witness’ testimony contradicts an earlier statement.
4- Knowledge of the legal process. Legal processes are tedious, especially if done by an inexperienced person. Lawyers are well aware of the importance of meeting deadlines and the consequences of not following through.
5- Lawyers are experts in negotiations. The lawyer handling your case will likely have already seen a case similar to yours. This will give him or her a clearer idea of how to negotiate with the opposing party.
6- The other party probably has legal representation. Do not put yourself at a disadvantage!
7- Lawyers usually offer a free consultation
