When you’re injured in an accident you’re confused and overwhelmed. In most cases, especially if you have suffered a serious injury, the first question to enter your mind is “What do I do?”. You need to get help from an experienced personal injury attorney and here is why:
Experience Assessing Injury Claims
Personal injury attorneys have experience handling claims like yours. This experience aids them in being able to review your circumstances and tell whether it is worth pursuing legal action. If the outcome does not look to be in your favor, you can avoid the time and expenses of preparing for litigation.
No Fees If You Don’t Recover
Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means if the attorney does not win your case you do not owe any attorney fees. However, some personal injury attorneys, not Monsees & Mayer, P.C., may require reimbursement of expenses not directly related to professional fees, such as the fees doctors charge for reviewing your records or being interviewed.
Personal injury claims include complicated legal procedures, confusing medical terms and loads of paperwork. An experienced attorney can work through the complications and maze of paperwork necessary to resolve your claim so that you can get on with your life.
Experienced attorneys will have a network of investigators who have experience in specialized areas and will skillfully investigate the technical aspects of your case.
Fear, anger, pain and frustration can impact your ability to view the facts clearly. A personal injury attorney can be more objective and not make rash decisions. While your emotions may tempt you to go for a quick payout, your attorney may advise it is in your best interests to wait for a more appropriate offer.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
A trial is not always needed to resolve a case. An experienced attorney will know if there is a better route to recover through mediation or arbitration, thereby saving you time, money, and emotional energy.
Experience Working with Other Lawyers
An experienced personal injury lawyer can deal most effectively and expediently with opposing counsel.
Experience With Insurance Companies
Personal injury lawyers are used to dealing with insurance companies and will not be confused by their tactics or feel pressured to settle for an unsatisfactory amount.
Many personal injury cases are resolved through a negotiated settlement instead of going to trial. Personal Injury attorneys work hard to reach the best settlements for their clients, as early in the litigation process as possible.
Best Jury Verdicts
If a trial becomes necessary, a personal injury lawyer will develop a legal strategy designed toward achieving the best possible jury verdict in your favor.
