Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
It’s not uncommon for accident and injury victims to be approached by insurance companies who will offer you money to settle. Their goal is to protect their client from the possibility of a lawsuit and get you to give up your rights.
Hiring a lawyer provides you with some clear benefits.
An Attorney Understands the Claim Process
The role of a personal injury lawyer is primarily to protect your right to pursue legal remedies and be compensated for your injuries. Navigating the personal injury claim process can be difficult and confusing, and a mistake can delay or significantly reduce the amount of compensation you receive.
A Lawyer Knows How to Negotiate Settlements
Most personal injury lawsuits are not decided by a jury in a trial. More often, they are settled in negotiations between you and the defendant’s insurance company. Having a personal injury lawyer who has experience in negotiations of this sort is a clear advantage.
A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Expedite Your Claim
The personal injury claims process can be slow and tedious. By hiring an attorney, you are employing a team of people who can stay on top of your claim and speed the process as much as possible. Instead of dealing with insurance companies and other lawyers, you can be free to focus on recovering from your injuries.
An Attorney Can Represent You in Court
If settlement negotiations are unsuccessful, your case will be resolved in a trial. Although you do have the option to represent yourself, the defendant will likely have a professional litigation lawyer working for them. In this scenario, you want to arm yourself with the best courtroom representation available.
Your Injury Lawyer Will Be Objective
Objectivity matters in any legal process. Your injury has likely left you traumatized and emotional. This can lead to poor decisions when dealing with law enforcement officers, defense attorneys, and insurance companies. Though your lawyer will be compassionate, they will also maintain the objectivity necessary to make a strong case.
Fearless Representation from The Spence Law Firm
There are federal and state laws in place designed to protect victims who are injured by the wrongful, negligent actions of other people. Private individuals and businesses of all sizes are required by law to keep their customers and other people reasonably safe.
When people fail to do their part in protecting others, federal and state laws provide remedies.
Insurance companies play a significant role in injury claims because they represent their client’s interests and often are the ones who will pay compensation for claims. These companies may seek to devalue a claim or deny it outright, even if they know they are liable. Their goal is to protect their money. Our goal is to protect you.
Our attorneys help you fight back against greedy insurance companies if they deny or devalue your claim. We have decades of experience negotiating fair settlements for our clients or achieving justice at trial.
