Is It Worth Getting a Personal Injury Lawyer?
A personal injury lawyer will work with you after you have suffered personal injuries resulting from an accident. In most cases, you will be recovering compensation from an insurance company. When you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer, you will be hiring an individual who understands the laws and can represent you to get you the money you deserve in reimbursement for the losses suffered during the accident.
You Don’t Have to Suffer Your Personal Injuries in Silence After an Accident
Sometimes, people who have been in an accident try to suffer in silence. They think that their injuries will miraculously heal themselves. But this is never the case. If you have been in a car accident or suffered another type of loss or accident and have personal injuries, you will have medical bills from the treatments that you have undergone. In addition, you will have expenses related to:
- Hospital bills
- Emergency room billings
- Therapy bills
- Medication costs
- Lost wages
- Modifications to the home
- Other expenses related to the loss
As these claims are made, you will have to work with an insurance company that will be reviewing the losses and damages. You will need to submit your medical billings to show that you were injured and verify your injuries. While this is being reviewed, you will start to get medical bills from the providers. You will find that the bills need to be paid. If they are not paid in a timely way, they will go to a collection agency for processing.
This is why you want to get an attorney to help you settle your claim with the insurance company. It will be difficult for this to be managed if you do this independently. Therefore, you need and require a lawyer’s expertise to help you in this case, and you should call a lawyer right away, as soon as you have the accident.
Personal Injury Lawyers Represent You for Many Different Types of Accidents
A personal injury lawyer can represent you for any accident you suffered that created a personal injury. For example, if you have been bitten by a dog, slipped and fallen at a mall, or have had someone hit your bicycle while you rode it on the roadway, you can hire a personal injury lawyer to take the case for you.
By and far, the most common accident that a personal injury lawyer will represent is a car accident or car crash-related personal injury. When you have been in a car accident, your body is tossed around, and you can experience many types of soft tissue injuries. These injuries can sometimes seem not that serious at first, but they can worsen over time. Soft tissue injuries are also difficult to heal and can have residual pain associated with them for weeks, months, or even years to come after the accident. As a result of some types of soft tissue injuries can create chronic and long-lasting pain that might require future surgeries to alleviate the pain and issues related to the loss.
Many People Have Soft Tissue Injuries After an Accident
Accidents can happen very quickly, and they will usually take you by surprise. No one expects to get into an accident, and when you are seriously injured as the result of an accident, it can take you by surprise. Your accident will produce many different types of injuries. Many people experience various types of soft tissue injuries resulting from a car accident or car crash. If you have had an accident with a truck or semi-truck, your injuries can be even more severe.
You may have experienced these soft-tissue injuries after a car crash:
- Head trauma
- Internal bleeding
- Neck pains
- Back pains
- Lower back pains
- Sprains and strains
- Bruises and contusions
If you have had any of these soft tissue injuries after a car crash, you can give us a call. We are here to discuss your accident with you and tell you the next steps to aid you in your recovery.
A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Initiate a Lawsuit If Necessary
You will want to work with a personal injury lawyer who can start a lawsuit for you if needed. When working with a large insurance company, the insurance company will settle your claim, but only as it is to their own advantage.
Let’s walk through a potential claim and see just how this could work out towards a settlement.
Hypothetical Claim with a Pedestrian Hit by a Car Resulting in a Car Accident
Let’s review a potential claim. If Person A is a pedestrian jogging on the road and is wearing reflective clothing, running against traffic in the daytime, and is hit by a car, the following consequences may occur:
The car driven by Driver B is driving and is possibly inattentive, distracted, or just careless on the road. As a result of this action, Driver B hits Person A jogging on the road. Person A sustains a serious back injury during the accident. Person A may go to his insurance company first for reimbursement of medical bills that occur as a result of the accident. But the back injury will require several more surgeries to allow person A to walk normally again. In this situation, Person A may need to bring a lawsuit if the settlement from Driver B’s insurance company is going to be too small a number.
Should You Ever Try to Settle a Personal Injury Claim on Your Own?
The answer in all cases is “No,” you should not try to settle your own personal injury claim yourself. Back to our example, Person A has a back injury from an accident as a pedestrian being hit by Driver B. If Person A calls Driver B’s insurance company and tries to negotiate a settlement, the insurance company will try to settle the case as quickly as possible, but for as little as possible as well. With a lawyer, the insurance company will have to negotiate fairly because the lawyer will know what to do to get the full settlement and money owed to Person A.
When you call our law firm, you will be getting a knowledgeable lawyer who understands how to negotiate with the large insurance companies on your behalf.
