Why You Should Hire a Personal Injury Attorney After Your Car Accident
No one is prepared to be involved in one of Florida’s many car accidents, and the unfortunate truth is that the uncertainty doesn’t stop there, especially if you happen to find yourself injured. Dealing with unexpected injuries in the aftermath of a car accident causes a lot of confusion and triggers a lot of emotions. That likely means you are also finding yourself facing a host of unexpected medical expenses which represents its own source of stress. At a time when life seems so complicated, obtaining the help of an experienced personal injury attorney is one of the smartest things you can do.
What Kind of Compensation Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help Me Obtain?
If your injuries were caused by the negligent or reckless behavior of someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. This compensation can include everything from the medical bills that have accumulated to lost wages, prescription costs and even damages for your pain and suffering.
But Isn’t Hiring an Attorney Expensive?
When it comes to personal injury claims, there are typically no expensive retainers or fees that have to be paid up front. Instead, most personal injury attorneys will only be paid if your personal injury claim is successful. This means that we have the same motivation – maximizing the compensation that you are entitled to and ensuring that your claim is successful. And as discussed below, the value of having someone on your side who can advocate for you and protect your rights more than pays for itself.
How Can the Help of an Attorney Benefit Me Financially?
While you can pursue a claim on your own, you should understand the chances of obtaining the compensation that you deserve are always better when you have an experienced legal team on your side. Hiring an attorney who understands exactly how insurance companies try to avoid paying for damages and how challenging it can be to obtain the amount of compensation your claim truly deserves often means that you actually obtain greater compensation. At the end of the day, the insurance company exists to maintain a business and its primary goal is therefore to make money off of you and any amount that it is willing to offer you easily is almost certainly only a portion of what your injuries are actually worth. Your personal injury lawyer can help make sure that you get all the money you are entitled to by putting your best interests ahead of the interests of an insurance company. In addition, your attorney can maximize legal options you may not be aware of, such as the fact that you may be able to recover from your own insurance company if you were involved in an accident alone or were hit by someone who didn’t have insurance.
