Do I Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Personal Injury


Last month, we told you about five critical things to look for in a personal injury attorney. But you may be wondering if you need to hire a personal injury lawyer at all. Here are some things to think about as you make your decision.

Are you a victim of medical malpractice? If your injuries occurred as a result of medical care or a medical procedure, you’ll want to hire a personal injury attorney. Malpractice cases are complex. It takes a skilled lawyer to prove incompetence or carelessness on the part of a doctor, nurse, hospital, laboratory, or other healthcare provider.

Are you permanently disabled? Do you have a long-term injury? Permanent injuries or those that take over a year to recover from are serious business. An attorney can get you an appropriate settlement to compensate you for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Were you exposed to toxic chemicals? The effects of this type of exposure can dramatically affect your life. However, they can also be very difficult to prove. You may need expert witnesses or scientific data to make your case. Experienced personal injury lawyers have the knowledge and connections to get the facts in front of a judge or jury.

Is an insurance company refusing to pay? Sometimes an insurance company refuses to pay bills in personal injury cases. Regardless of how you were injured, an attorney can help get you the money you need from an insurer. Personal injury lawyers know how to navigate the red tape and get results.
