Should I Hire An Attorney For My Personal Injury Case?

“I was rear-ended on my way to work a few days ago.  The other driver and I exchanged insurance information. Now I am having back pain.  The insurance company is saying that it was partly my fault and only wants to offer me $500.  Should I have gotten an attorney?”

Being involved in a car accident is a scary situation; it can even be traumatizing. Having a personal injury attorney review your case is sometimes suggested. But how do you know if you should hire an attorney?

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Is there an argument over who is at fault?
  2. Are my injuries severe?
  3. Can I negotiate this and deal with insurance company on my own?

In some instances, individuals choose to represent themselves in car accident claims. However, it is important to note that if it is not clear whose fault it was you can have a difficult time dealing with the insurance company. Insurance companies will fight as hard as they can to find you at fault or issue the least amount of compensation as possible.

The most critical aspect to focus on is whether you have been injured in the accident due to the other parties’ actions. This will help you determine if you truly need legal representation. Minor injuries can worsen over time if left untreated. A medical doctor will be able to inform you of the severity of your injuries. Seeking medical attention is imperative whether you decide to hire an attorney or not.

There is a lot of work that goes into pursuing a personal injury claim. Most people do not want to deal with the burden, especially if they are severely injured. Insurance companies will try to trick you into taking an offer worth less than what you are entitled to. This can lead to unpaid bills and unresolved property damage. If you decide you do not want to deal with the hassle, you should hire a legal team. Knowledge of the law and procedural rules is what separates an attorney from a potential client.  Sometimes cases are easily resolved; other times cases can get complicated and need a lawsuit to be filed.
