Hiring a personal injury attorney after being injured in an accident may help to lighten the load on you and your family during this difficult time. Your attorney can handle all the logistics of your case, file all the paperwork on time, and negotiate with the insurer on your behalf. This will allow you to focus on your recovery. Your attorney can also help you to gather important evidence that will strengthen your claim and may help to maximize your settlement.
Here are a few ways in which your personal injury attorney can help you with your case:
- Your Attorney Will Look Out for Your Best Interests: The insurer and opposing parties may try to undermine and dispute your claim in the hopes of settling on the lowest payout possible. This might not be sufficient for the damages you have suffered. Your attorney will, however, be able to advise you when the insurance company and opposing parties are trying to lowball you with an unfair settlement. Your attorney can estimate the potential value of your tangible and intangible losses which may help during the negotiation process to know when an offer is insufficient. To do this, your attorney is likely to require your detailed medical records, paychecks that reflect a loss of income, bank statements, and documentation of other accident-related expenses. Your attorney may also request that you keep a personal injury journal to document your pain levels, suffering, discomfort, symptoms, medication, and doctor’s visits to use as evidence.
- Evidence May be Misrepresented: Insurers are likely to conduct their own investigation of the accident and the circumstances surrounding it. Their findings cannot, however, always be trusted as insurers are known to try to misrepresent the available evidence to reduce or even deny your claim as they try to avoid substantial payouts. Your attorney will, however, carefully investigate your case and try to fill all the gaps in evidence that the insurer might take advantage of. Thorough evidence may help to strengthen your claim and help you to achieve a positive outcome for your case.
- Your Attorney Will Handle All Logistics For You: Navigating a personal injury claim can be a time-consuming, demanding, and challenging experience to go through on your own. You could still be recovering in the hospital, undergoing treatments, be in immense pain, or still be in shock after the accident. Your attorney can help to manage all logistics of your case, complete the paperwork correctly and on time, compile the necessary documents and evidence required, and handle all correspondence with the insurer on your behalf. Your attorney will aim to make the claims process as smooth and efficient as possible so that you can receive your financial reward as soon as possible to relieve the financial pressure you may be under.
