Suffering an injury can do more to your life than just cause you physical pain. You might be faced with mounting medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses associated with your injury, and you might be wondering what you’ll do to take care of all the bills and get back on your feet. The answer may be a personal injury attorney, and here’s a quick guide to help you know when you should hire a personal injury lawyer.
- If you have been involved in an auto accident and have suffered injuries, then you should consider hiring an attorney. Dealing with insurance companies (who want to settle quickly and cheaply) without the aid of a legal representative can lead to more problems and hassles for you, especially if they don’t offer as much money as you need.
- Another reason to retain a lawyer is if you have a great deal of medical bills. If your injury requires surgeries and long hospital stays, plus rehabilitation costs and other expenses related to recovering, then you need help getting the responsible party to pay. An attorney can help get your bills paid.
- Consider hiring a personal injury attorney if you have missed a great deal of work and have a large amount of lost wages. Also, if you have accrued other bills because of your injury, like child care, housekeeping services, or other expenses directly related to you being injured, then an attorney can help you recoup those costs.
- Finally, if the thought of dealing with the other party’s attorney or insurance company makes you uneasy, then you should let a lawyer take care of all your legal problems associated with your personal injury. Your attorney will not be intimidated by the insurance company or another lawyer.
