Reasons to Consider Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

by Doug Zanes | Last Updated: August 20, 2020

The idea of hiring a personal injury lawyer can be intimidating. You may be concerned about the financial implications when you’re already dealing with so much, you may be hesitant to divulge private health information, or you may just not believe that they have your best interests at heart.

The good news is that in many cases you don’t need to pay for anything upfront and most accident cases are settled before they can make it to trial. And while you might be able to handle your claim on your own, there are many reasons to have a personal injury lawyer on your side.

They’re Great Negotiators

Negotiation is an art. Not only does it take skill, but it also takes a lot of experience to excel at it. When you file a personal injury claim, the other party will likely have an attorney or insurance representative fighting to keep any settlements low. But having an experienced personal injury attorney can help because they have your best interest at heart. This means that they will fight to get you the full and fair compensation you deserve.

They Can Level the Playing Field

If the other party has a qualified attorney while you are on your own, it can put you at a great disadvantage. While the other attorney can do a great job of highlighting facts favorable to the defendant, it can be tough to know which evidence is important for your case. The right personal injury attorney knows what evidence to gather and what you deserve, helping you to obtain the best outcome.

They Can Help Expedite Your Claim

While obtaining the right outcome is key, it can be detrimental if you must wait a very long time to receive it. When you’ve been injured in an accident, your priority is to get better. When you have to wait until you get better to bring a claim for your injuries, the compensation that you’re in need of can take far too long to recover. But by hiring an experienced personal injury attorney, he or she can begin to seek compensation while you’re still recovering.

They Can Increase What You Receive

Speaking of compensation, hiring a personal injury attorney may help you to recover more. By hiring an experienced lawyer, you put yourself in a position to receive several times more in damages than those who are self-represented.
