<![CDATA[If you’ve been injured due to the action or inaction of someone else, then you are owed compensation for the losses and expenses of your injuries. While in an ideal world the insurance companies would award payments fairly and those who are to blame would own up to fault immediately, those perfect scenarios aren’t usually the case.
Yet it’s still not always easy to decide if you truly do need to find legal aid to support you after an injury. Here are some of the signs that you should be seeking out a personal injury lawyer who can represent you and fight for your rights.
- Stonewalling Insurance Companies
Too often insurance adjustors offer the very lowest amount they think you will accept, which is rarely enough to cover medical bills and lost wages, much less pain and suffering. Other times they will try to deny liability altogether. Consumers are accustomed to trusting insurance companies but relying on them to do the right thing will just not get you what you need. Experienced lawyers, on the other hand, know how to deal with insurance companies and get you the largest compensation possible.
- Severe Injuries
After suffering trauma of any severity, your first priority must be to recover, not to spend hours in settlement conferences or endlessly negotiating with faithless insurance companies. Find an experienced personal injury lawyer to take on the stress of the proceedings so that you don’t have to.
- Disabling or Permanent Injuries
Assigning a number value to an injury that is crippling or that has any kind of permanence is a complicated process. It is critical that you enlist the help of an attorney who can assess potential implications over time as well as in the present, so that you are covered in the long term.
- Exposure to Toxins
If you’ve been exposed to toxins, your case is likely to be difficult and lengthy, requiring extensive scientific analyses and expert witness testimonies. Attorneys will have connections and be able to access these specialists who can testify on your behalf, navigating complex territory so you don’t have to.
- Healthcare Provider Negligence
Medical malpractice claims are an entirely different kind of personal injury, setting claimants against entire hospitals and doctors with a lot to lose, as well as against insurance companies. As a general rule, you should never take on an entity of any size without expert legal counsel to represent you.
