If you have been injured, and it was someone else’s fault, you may need a lawyer. Here are four reasons to consider hiring a personal injury attorney.
- No fees if you don’t win your case.
Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee meaning that they receive a percentage of any settlement or judgment as their fee. If there is no recovery, then you do not owe the lawyer a fee. There are no up-front retainers or payments.
- Settlements are higher
People who hire personal injury lawyers statistically receive more money in their pocket then if they did not hire a lawyer, even after paying attorney’s fees and costs. Having a skilled lawyer helps maximize recovery meaning more money for the client.
- Reduce Insurance Headaches
There are a number of insurance policies and coverages that apply in a personal injury case. Keeping up with all of them can be very difficult. Knowing how much coverage is available and how different policies interact is a personal injury lawyer’s job. Personal injury lawyers get policy information for their client’s insurance, the other parties’ insurance, health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, TriCare, and other coverages that might apply. They monitor insurance payments throughout a case. Keeping up with this is one less thing a client has to worry about.
- Save Time
Personal injury lawyers deal with doctor’s offices and insurance companies all day and every day. They save clients the time of having to sit on hold to find out billing issues or negotiations with adjusters. Their staff goes through medical charts and police reports so that their clients don’t have to. These are some of the many things lawyers can do to save time for their clients.
