Experiencing a personal injury due to any reason can be devastating. When it is due to someone else’s negligence, however, if can be even more of a mental and emotional burden to handle, in addition to the physical struggles it causes. In these scenarios, you may feel as though simply leaving the matter in the hands of the authorities and/or the insurance companies may be your best option.
However, it is unlikely that either of the entities will have your best interest in mind in regards to gaining the full compensation that you deserve for your injury. Insurance companies often aim to pay out the least amount possible and will work to prove that you do not deserve the full amount you are claiming. They do not have your healing in mind, and most likely are out to simply settle the situation at hand and move on, with little regard to how your life and future are affected. For these reasons and more, it is highly advisable to get an injury attorney so you can fully heal.
As previously mentioned, insurance companies will work to prove that you do not deserve the full amount that you are claiming, in order to pay out as little as possible. To do this, they have vigorous attorneys and lawyers working for them to find as many loopholes as possible. Not only do these attorneys know the ins and outs of the law surrounding your injury, they also know every nook and cranny of your insurance policy, and know how to make it work in their favor.
A personal injury attorney will fight for you and has the knowledge and experience to go up against these big guns, whereas an individual not so familiar with the law may not have a solid defense. Hiring an attorney to represent you not only levels the playing field, but it also reduces the stress you have trying to build your own argument, as your attorney should offer some sort of protection for you against these sharks in the water.
