Think You Don’t Need a Personal Injury Attorney? Think Again

February 7, 2012

Some people wrongfully characterize personal injury attorneys as “ambulance chasers,” and they attempt to represent themselves in a personal injury claim. Those people quickly find themselves buried in medical bills, doctor’s narratives and uncompromising insurance companies. Whether you suffer injuries in a car accident, construction accident or from a defective product, a personal injury attorney can do the things that you cannot do.

While you focus on your physical recovery, a personal injury attorney can do the following on your behalf:

  • An attorney will do the legwork and investigation for you while you focus on your recovery and well-being
  • An attorney knows how to value your injuries and damages
  • An attorney will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to get you the best possible compensation package

Most personal injury attorneys will not charge you for a consultation to discuss your claim. If they decide your claim has merit, they usually take the case on a contingency basis and take a percentage of your recovery for their fee. Overall, having a skilled personal injury attorney on your side affords you peace of mind.

Do you need representation for an injury caused by another person’s negligence?
