Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
Receiving compensation and damages for injuries you have suffered may be easier with legal counsel assistance to build your case, negotiate the claims you have with your insurance company, and provide legal representation should your case go to trial. While you may think it is a simple process to submit and dispute claims with your insurance company, it is important to realize that your provider has a team of attorneys on their side that are extremely knowledgeable of the law.
In order for you to not be taken advantage of, and ensure that your interests are protected, assistance from effective and affordable legal representation is crucial. Your attorney will know how the insurance claim process works and how to navigate it. They will not allow the insurer to take advantage of you. Instead, they will manage the entire process while you undergo treatment and recover from your injuries.

Will I Get More Money if I Hire a Lawyer to Handle My Personal Injury Case?
While there is no guarantee that you will receive a larger payout if you work with an attorney, that is a common result. Our attorneys know the types of damages our clients commonly suffer and where to look to determine the expenses and losses they incurred. We also know how to value intangible and future losses.
In addition to documenting a higher value of damages, we understand and employ proven negotiation strategies and work to get a better settlement offer from the insurance company, as well. These factors can lead to a better result than trying to reach an agreement on your own.

Do I Have to Go to Court to Have My Legal Issue Resolved?
Not all legal disputes require court proceedings for resolution. Disputes between an insurance provider and a private citizen can be resolved through negotiations so that you never have to step foot in court. Workers’ compensation decisions can also be reached without court involvement. You can avoid court and still get a fair payout provided that you have guidance from a qualified counsel.
A desirable negotiation that gets you the compensation you require will necessitate the services of skilled negotiators experienced with reaching settlements. If a settlement cannot be negotiated, it may be necessary to institute legal proceedings to determine liability and to recover damages.
In short, most personal injury cases settle through insurance negotiations and never require a lawsuit. Even fewer go to trial. However, we prepare for cases like they might go before a judge and jury because it is sometimes necessary.
