Why Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
How an Attorney On Your Side Can Help You Get The Compensation You Deserve
When someone is injured in a motor vehicle accident or other accident, the recovery process can complex and difficult. Obviously, injuries don’t come with a clear price tag. A big part of settling your injury claim is determining the monetary value of a the following key items:
- Time missed from work
- Medical Bills (past and future)
- Damage to Property
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of ability to perform tasks in day to day life
Some of these numbers can seem relatively simple to calculate. For example, if you typically make $1,000 a week, and you missed two weeks of work while you recovered and did not require any follow up with a doctor, that would be fairly simple. But what if instead of missing a few weeks at work, you can no longer perform the job you used to? How do you calculate a lifetime of limited earning potential? What if instead of having all of your medical treatments completed, your injury will require on-going visits to a doctor; how are those costs calculated? The reality is, most of the amounts will be based on estimates and ranges. Having a lawyer on your side ensures that every element of your recovery is considered and that you are treated fairly.
The Insurance Company Has Already Offered Me a Nice Settlement. Why Would I Hire a Lawyer?
It’s not uncommon to receive an offer from the insurance company without an attorney. It’s important to understand that once you accept a check from the insurance company you are releasing them of all future responsibility. In one recent case our client was offered $82,900 to settle her case and asked us if it was a good settlement offer. We reviewed the case with the client and determined that it was not. Within one month of taking over her case we were able to settle her case for $189,000.
