Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim with their insurance company or file a personal injury lawsuit against the person or company responsible.

Serious injuries may result in a major strain on your family financially as they can lead to high medical bills and lost work. If you find yourself in this position, you may have a number of questions that need to be answered.

Our San Francisco personal injury attorneys have put together a list of frequently asked questions in hopes of providing you with some clarity when considering hiring a personal injury attorney:

  1. Why should I hire a personal injury attorney?

Simply put, a talented personal injury attorney will increase the amount and certainty of the monetary compensation you receive for your injuries. While insurance companies will probably cover some of the costs associated with treating the injuries you sustained, their coverage usually does not extend beyond the initial costs. With the help of a dedicated attorney, you can seek retribution for all the hardships you will now have to endure as a result of your injuries. Do not sit back and let the insurance companies dictate the terms of your future life; they will always come up short.

  1. Can I handle my personal injury claim on my own?

While the state of California does not require you to have an attorney in order to pursue compensation, having a knowledgeable lawyer at your side can have a significant impact on the amount of compensation you ultimately receive. Statistically, an individual is half as likely to recover the compensation he or she is due without the assistance of an attorney. Many insurance companies will attempt to take advantage of those attempting to handle their case on their own. They may use tactics against you to lower the amount of your claim, deny your claim, or delay your compensation until you are truly desperate. Having legal counsel on your side gives you a significant advantage.
