Signs That Indicate You Need a Personal Injury Attorney for Your Case
Some cases involving minor injuries and no disputes regarding liability may not require the assistance of personal injury lawyers to settle the claim for a fair amount. However, some signs that you might benefit from talking to a lawyer about your injury claim before taking any actions are:
- Your sustained traumatic injuries that resulted in a long recovery and high medical costs.
- The accident resulted in permanent disabilities or impairments.
- An insurance company or other party is blaming you for the cause of the accident or your injuries.
- Fault is being denied by the other parties involved in the case.
- Your child sustained injuries because of an accident or the negligence of another party.
- The insurance company or other party refuses to settle the claim for a fair amount.
- You are nearing the deadline for filing a lawsuit, and your case has not been settled.
- The insurance company is pressuring you to settle your claim before you complete medical treatment.
There may be other factors that could indicate you need to talk with a personal injury attorney. If you are unsure about any aspect of your injury claim, it is best to seek legal advice from a trusted source instead of relying on information received from an insurance adjuster or another party. Insurance adjusters and other parties are protecting their best interests. You need advice from someone who has your best interest as the top priority.
