How to Know If You Should Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

The decision about whether to hire a personal injury lawyer should be made after considering all of the facts unique to your situation. You may be surprised to hear us say this, but a personal injury lawyer is not necessary for every personal injury lawsuit.

You can find out whether you could benefit from hiring a personal injury lawyer for free and with no obligation by scheduling a free consultation with us. We will explain how a personal injury lawsuit works and, if we believe that you can get a fair recovery without hiring a lawyer, we will tell you so.

When You May Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

You may benefit from hiring a personal injury lawyer if:

  • Your injuries are complex, expensive, or will take a long time to heal. If you suffer significant injuries, then your medical bills may be extensive, you may be unable to work or to earn the same income that you did prior to the injury, and your future may be uncertain. In these cases, your damages may be difficult to value and the insurance company may be unwilling to provide you with fair compensation unless you are represented by a lawyer.
  • The accident was complicated. If the facts of your case are complicated then the defendants and their insurance companies may try to blame each other—or you—for the injury. In this type of situation you want to make sure you have an attorney representing your interests.
  • You are having trouble determining the defendant’s insurance coverage. In order to get a fair recovery you need to know what you may be able to recover from the insurance companies that have legal obligations to compensate you after the accident or incident that left you injured.

You may not need a lawyer, however, if your injuries are minor or if you are confident that you are receiving the maximum amount of coverage that you deserve from the insurance company.

Remember, You Have Nothing to Lose
