Why Do I Need an Injury Attorney?


Many situations can warrant your search for an injury attorney. It could be that you were hit by a drunk driver while crossing the street on your way home. Maybe you suffered an unexpected injury at work or slipped and fell at your favorite shopping mall.

Regardless of what caused your injuries, the recovery can be physically, emotionally, and financially overwhelming. As such, you need all the help you can get at this time. This typically involves seeking financial compensation for your hurt and getting an injury lawyer to handle it on your behalf.

While you may already know this, it’s normal to contemplate other alternatives—like fighting for justice all by yourself. That’s especially true if you’re already neck-deep in medical bills and looking for every avenue to save money.

However, the more desperate you are to get maximum compensation, the more necessary it becomes to have solid legal representation by your side.

We’ll let you know why in this article. Let’s get started.

Top 5 Reasons to Hire an Injury Lawyer

Here’s why hiring an injury attorney is the single most important decision for your personal injury claim:

You Don’t Pay Until You Win

One of the reasons many victims refuse legal help is the fear of exorbitant lawyers’ fees. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about this.

Many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. That means that they will not charge any attorney fees upfront and you only have to pay them if you win. If you win, the attorneys’ fees can come out of your compensation.

An Injury Lawyer Has the Answers to Your Legal Questions

From what your rights are to whether you even have a case, a multitude of questions may flood your mind after a personal injury. You may even attempt to find answers online only to find conflicting results.

That’s because no two personal injury cases are the same, and the best answers are always personalized to suit your peculiar circumstances. That’s why it’s best to bring your questions to your personal injury attorney who will review your case and offer customized legal advice.

They Have Experience in Handling Cases Like Yours

There’s no better person to handle a personal injury claim than someone who has done it so many times before. Injury attorneys have an extensive understanding of personal injury law and know how to navigate the system. With their experience, you can be sure of quality legal representation while avoiding trials and errors.

They Can Handle Insurance Adjusters

Insurance adjusters are not pleasant to work with when it comes to seeking compensation for your injuries. Since they have more experience than you do, they’ll try to leverage it to force you into accepting less than you deserve. However, getting an injury attorney who knows their various tactics levels the playing field. That way, your personal injury lawyer will prevent adjusters from taking advantage of you.

You’ll Get More Compensation

No one has your best interests at heart as your injury lawyer does. They’ll make your case as airtight as possible and advocate aggressively for you to receive damages. Their effective legal approach will give you a better chance of success than if you pursued your claim alone.

What Damages Will I Receive in A Personal Injury Case?

The compensation you’ll get after a personal injury case depends on various factors, including the specifics of your case. However, the damages open for you to receive include:

Economic Damages

These refer to compensation for the financial or out-of-pocket expenses you incurred as a result of the accident. Economic damages include medical bills, lost wages, disability, rehab, and so forth.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are awarded to compensate you for the emotional suffering you have faced because of your injury. They include pain and suffering, inconvenience, emotional distress, and loss of companionship.

Punitive Damages

In extreme cases, the court may award damages to compensate you for the gross negligence of the at-fault party and to serve as a deterrent to others. These are called punitive damages.
