After an accident, an injury can leave you damaged emotionally and physically. It can be difficult to think ahead at a time when you’re trying to get your life back. The cost of an injury can be detrimental to you and your family. Medical bills and cost of medications can be a burden if you don’t have the money to pay for them. Put that on top of if you’re put out of work, and it can be challenging to think of how you can ever financially recover from the situation you’re in.
In these instances, it can be difficult to find who is legally responsible for your compensation. That’s where an experienced personal injury attorney can come in. Here are a few reasons why it could be in your best interest to hire a personal injury attorney after you’ve been involved in an accident.
Experience With Similar Claims
An experienced personal injury attorney will have knowledge of how the law affects your particular case. Personal injury law and liability can be a difficult area to navigate. There are many nuances that could affect how a case will turn out. A personal injury attorney will have experience in this field and know how your case could be affected. They’ll also be able to look at the fine details of your case and help guide you toward the best possible result.
No Fees if You Don’t Win
Many personal injury firms, such as Richard Schwartz and Associates, work on contingency fees. This means that clients do not pay out of pocket, rather that the lawyer’s compensation will come out of the final settlement. The portion of compensation that your lawyer will receive will be decided between you and your attorney. At Richard Schwartz and Associates, we work with our clients based on their individual circumstances, and by doing this, we are generally able to keep our fees lower.
Saves You Time
Many people don’t have hours of time to request medical reports, review police documents, look at medical charts, communicate back and forth with insurance companies, and try to break down all this information. Especially after suffering from an accident and sustaining an injury, you should be spending your time focusing on your recovery, not worrying about the twists and turns that the legal process can entail. This is where a personal injury attorney can help save you time and ease the burden of your injury.
Settlements are Typically Higher
Usually, people who hire personal injury attorneys will end up with a higher settlement in the end than those that don’t hire an attorney. Lawyers can better negotiate settlements and help you avoid trial. Even after paying contingency fees, clients usually walk away with more money than if they hadn’t hired an attorney at all.
