The bleeding from your wounds has just stopped and you are already getting requests from law enforcement officers, doctors, and insurance companies requesting paperwork. Obviously you are feeling pressured and overwhelmed by all the questions about your accident. No one seems to be able to provide you with the information that is most important to you. If you have been hurt in a accident, hiring a personal injury attorney with experience can help you with what to do next.

Here Are Ten Reasons To Hire An Experienced Personal Injury Attorney.

  1. No Fees if You Don’t Recover: Most attorneys work on what is called a contingency fee. That simply means that if you do not win your case then you do not pay attorneys’ fees. You may be responsible for certain expenses not directly related to your attorney’s services.

  2. Experience Assessing Claims: Personal injury attorney’s are well versed and knowledgeable with cases like yours and can tell you from the beginning if your case is worth pursuing. If your attorney feels that there is no reason to pursue legal action, you can avoid the time and expense of preparing for litigation.

  3. Investigative Team: Usually, attorneys have a team of investigators at their disposal who have the experience in specialized areas and will skillfully examine the technical aspects of your case. You will play in important role in this process as you will provide important information about your accident to the team.

  4. Red Tape: Personal injury cases involve complicated legal procedures, complex medical terminology, and a ton of paperwork. An experienced attorney can work through the vast amount of paperwork necessary to resolve your claim so life for you can return to normal.

  5. Alternative Dispute Resolution: Lengthy, expensive, and complicated trials are always necessary to resolve a case. A experienced attorney will know if your case may be best for alternative dispute resolution methods (ADR.) This in turn will save you time, money, and emotional energy. The most common types of ADR are arbitration and mediation.

  6. Objectivity: Pain, anger, fear, and frustration may influence your ability to see the facts clearly. An attorney can be more objective in this matter and not make rash and impulsive decisions. Example: The insurance company may offer you a quick cash settlement to end the case quickly, but your attorney will have your best interests in mind and may advise you to wait for a more appropriate offer.

  7. Experience Working With Insurance Companies: An experienced personal injury attorney know that insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. These companies want to settle or eliminate claims all together in order to boost their profits, while minimizing their payouts. There are all types of traps and confusing terminology within the insurance industry that they will use in order to confuse, and pressure you to settle for an unsatisfactory amount.

  8. Experience Working With Other Lawyers:An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to deal most effectively with the other side’s attorney. This is particularly important  during the fact-finding portion of the litigation when parties are required to exchange facts and documents.

  9. Getting Best Jury Verdicts: if a jury trial is necessary, a personal injury lawyer can best represent you in court and work hard toward achieving the best jury verdict in your favor. He/She will develop  a legal strategy designed to help get you any and all compensation available for your injuries.

  10. Getting Best Settlements: For the most part, personal injury cases are resolved by a negotiated settlement instead of a trial. Generally a settlement means the plaintiff (you) will give up the right to sue in exchange for a payment from the defendant or an insurance company. A personal injury lawyer can negotiate a settlement on behalf of a client and try to resolve the case as early as possible.
