Almost 39 million people in the US need medical care after experiencing an injury each year. You have a right to compensation for both medical costs and other losses in the event of damage due to someone else’s negligence. Before any of this can happen, you’ll need to file a claim against that negligent party, whether you DIY your case or get legal representation.
Here are some reasons why it may be better to get a personal injury attorney on your case than doing it yourself:
Better chance for the case to go through
Personal injury laws can be complex, with each state having specific regulations. To win the case, you’d need to have a good understanding of the federal and state laws about personal injury.
Aside from understanding the law itself, you’d also need proper, practical knowledge about the inner workings of a court system. You may miss deadlines and create extra work without the experience, which would give an advantage to the defense.
A lawyer will have proper trial experience and can go up against companies’ legal teams as well.
You’ll know the amount to claim
You can claim various damages in a personal injury case—punitive, emotional loss, and economic damages. Personal injury attorneys are well versed in all the categories and what qualifies as those types of damages, as well as what amounts you can claim. You may under or over-claim if you do it yourself, both of which have a negative outcome.
Save your time
Handling a personal injury case can be time-consuming, even more so when you have no experience. Let an official attorney handle all the work—they know all about the processes and can carry out all preparations and communications while you rest up and heal from your injuries.
It’s difficult to balance your normal everyday life and handle a case at the same time.
