If you or a loved one has been hurt or injured due to the negligence of another, you may be considering the services of a personal injury lawyer.
CHICAGO, IL, May 12, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ —
The Research Says It All
According to the Insurance Research Council the value of settlements people received for the same injury when they were represented with and without a lawyer. People who were represented by a personal injury attorney received almost three and a half times more compensation (this is even after the attorney’s fees were paid).
There are several reasons why personal injury attorneys are able to help their clients receive more money than those who do not utilize the services of a lawyer.
Identifying The Negligent Parties
Identifying the negligent party in an injury case is not always easy. Often times, there are several parties involved. An experienced personal injury attorney will know how to analyze your case to make sure every potential negligent party is found. You stand a greater chance to receive more money when more parties are found and indentified.
A Personal Injury Lawyer Knows How To Deal With The Insurance Companies
Insurance companies can be very difficult to work with – some insurance companies have even found to avoid paying out settlements for legitimate claims.
~They may claim that your medical records are not sufficient. They will recommend using one of their approved medical professionals for a re-assessment.
~They may tell you that you were at fault for the injury – thus denying you compensation.
~They will tie up your claim for a long period of time. This often makes people desperate to settle for any amount of money. In these cases, people tend to take much less than they are deserved.
~They may try to get you to admit to something that you did not do. This may be recorded and used against you.
The above-mentioned tactics are just a few of the ways an insurance company may try to intimidate injury victims. An experienced personal injury attorney WILL NOT allow the insurance companies to get away with any of these.
A Personal Injury Attorney Will Know How To Analyze The Scene Of An Accident or Injury
Putting together a case that will lead to the proper compensation takes time, patience, and experience. When it comes to experience, you need to rely on a personal injury lawyer. A lawyer will know exactly what to look for at the scene of an accident or injury. There are many different things that can prove the fault of a negligent party. If you don’t hire an injury attorney, you may miss out on key pieces of evidence that can lead you to a higher settlement and payout.
A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Properly Assess Your Injuries
The compensation that you receive relies heavily on the assessment and severity of your injuries. It is important to understand how an injury will impact you in the future. For example, you may not be able to go back to work in the same capacity as you could before the injury. A good personal injury attorney will work closely with you to understand what future ramifications your injury may have. An accurate compensation figure will be calculated to address potential lost income, future medical costs and any other relevant damages. Once this monetary figure is calculated, your personal injury attorney will work to get you the compensation that you are deserved.
A Personal Injury Lawyer Will Know The State Laws
It is important to understand that every state operates differently from a legal perspective. For this reason, you need an experienced attorney in the state of which you were hurt or injured to handle your case. There are pertinent laws and procedures that pertain to your state.
A Personal Injury Attorney Knows How Go To Trial & Fight In Court
Hiring a personal injury attorney shows an insurance company that you will go to court for fair and just compensation. The ability to go to trial alone can be enough to convince an insurance company to offer a greater settlement. Additionally, an insurance company will see your lawyer’s history of going to trial and verdicts won and may make a better settlement offer to avoid the expense and inconvenience of court a battle. If your insurance carrier does not offer enough money to settle your case, your attorney can take them to trial to fight for a better outcome from a judge or jury.
