5 Benefits of Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney To Advocate For You
May 30, 2017 • Personal Injury
After a car accident you have enough to worry about. Getting medical care, healing from injury, and working to put your life back together is challenging. If you have been injured in a car accident, or other type of accident, the guidance of a personal injury attorney may prove beneficial.
Your attorney will deal with the insurance company for you.
In fact, the insurance company is not allowed to contact you and they must contact your attorney instead. This is one less stressful thing you will have to manage.
The insurance company will not be able to bully you.
Insurance companies are known for unsavory, even abusive, business practices. Their goal is to make the smallest payout possible. They may even use high-pressure tactics to convince injured victims to settle their claims – often for far less than what the claim is actually worth.
Your attorney will investigate the accident and gather all necessary evidence to prove your case.
When you hire an attorney to represent you, you will gain additional resources to investigate your accident case.
When you hire our firm, we will conduct an investigation into the accident that injured you. We will identify the cause of the accident, and attempt to uncover negligence or misconduct. Our investigation includes documenting evidence, interviewing witnesses, taking photos of the scene, and subpoenaing any necessary records. The lawyers at Matthew G. Miller are also experienced at investigating all of the harms and losses caused by the incident. We research your medical conditions, investigate all of the harms and talk with your doctors and other important witnesses about the impacts and consequences of the injuries to your work, your family, your stress and anxiety, and your day-to-day activities.
An experienced personal injury attorney can properly value your claim.
It may be simple to add up the medical bills you paid and the wages you lost from missing work, but what about compensation beyond these? Determining the value of future lost wages, future medical bills, or pain and suffering is complex. A great benefit of hiring a personal injury attorney is that they can calculate what your claim is really worth.
No costs to you unless a recovery is made.
Our law firm covers all costs and fees upfront for our clients. Case costs and attorney fees are paid after the conclusion of your case, from the settlement or jury award. If you do not make a recovery in your case, you pay us nothing.
