What you need to know before hiring a personal injury attorney
Car accidents could be some very traumatizing events, especially if you've been injured. Beside receiving medical care, you have to deal with many problems including vehicle repairs, insurance agents, bills and so on. A personal injury attorney can provide the support you need in these kind of situations and help you get the compensation you deserve after an injury-causing accident.
It's pretty simple to decide if you'll need an attorney or not. Here are some cases where his/her help can be more than beneficial:
- You have very serious injuries;
- The accident worsened existing injuries;
- Your insurance company is offering an insufficient settlement or attempting to deny your injuries;
- You are experiencing non-economic losses (pain, suffering, loss of companionship etc.)
Before hiring a lawyer, it's important to do some research. You can learn a lot about a lawyer through online reviews and personal recommendations. You'll also have to look at his/her experience and track record, education, and of course, fees.
