When is a Personal Injury Attorney Necessary?

You may be asking yourself if you should hire a personal injury lawyer after an accident. A personal injury lawyer should be retained by anybody who has been hurt due to someone else’s negligence and has sustained significant bodily injuries and other losses.  The reason is simply because the attorney has years of accumulated knowledge, skill and experience in handling thousands of claims, ensuring the injured victim gets prompt and proper medical treatment, is intimately familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of the insurance company claim’s process, and knows how to get the maximum compensation for his clients. 

When you hire a competent and knowing attorney to assist you, you to concentrate on what matters most: getting better and returning to normalcy.

Dealing with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies are practiced in the art of undervaluing claims and routinely use company-wide policy and procedure materials for negotiating unfairly with victims of accidents.  Most all victims who attempt to “handle the claim” by themselves almost always gets the short end of the stick.  In other words, no matter your level of education or workplace experience, you are always outmatched by the crafty claims adjuster whose sole goal is to pay you as little as possible – i.e., pay you less than the totality of your damages.  Working with an attorney relieves you of the stress of negotiating and losing with insurance adjusters.  All discussions will be handled on your behalf by your lawyer.  This way you prevent yourself from making demands that are too little or unreasonable with respect to your claim.

Getting the Right Settlement

Personal injury attorneys understand the value of claims, are familiar with the state statutes that insurance companies must be follow, and guarantee that insurance companies pay reasonable prices, even if it involves going to court. Your personal injury lawyer and his firm will make sure that your medical costs are covered and that your vehicle’s property damage claim is settled quickly so you can get back on the road.

Statute of Limitation

Almost every form of injury claim has a statute of limitations. Typically, the statute of limitations in Nevada for personal injury claims will be two (2) years. Hence, you have a limited amount of time to seek compensation for your losses. When you’re up against a statute of limitations, it might be difficult to gather evidence, create a case, and submit a claim.  A skilled personal injury lawyer can take care of everything for you starting from when you retain the attorney way before the statute of limitation deadline. 

Legal Guidance Through Complex Cases 

Your injury lawyer is familiar with the claims process and courts. They will be able to research the exact cause of complex accidents, gather evidence, and contact witnesses promptly. Throughout the legal procedure, your personal injury attorney will give you ongoing direction and assistance.  In short, when you have suffered injuries due to the negligence of another, you should promptly seek whatever necessary medical treatment you need and also promptly retain an experienced and skilled personal injury litigation attorney. He/she will help you through the process and ensure you receive proper medical treatment and maximum compensation for your damages.
