Why Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Frederick K. Wilson II May 15, 2023

When you're in an accident, even small impacts can result in major injuries and time off work. According to Injured Call Today, there are over 400,000 personal injury claims each year. When you're injured, you need an attorney who can help you get the funds you need to cover the associated expenses as soon as possible. Here are just a few reasons why you should hire a personal injury attorney.

You Need Help With Insurance Carriers

After an accident or injury, your insurance carriers have their lists and procedures that they're going to have to work through. The insurance company's goal is to be as profitable as possible. All too often, this can make clients who have paid their bills for years feel like they're being left in the lurch now that they need a payout. Your personal injury lawyer can help you get the relief you need by advocating for your contractual rights.

You Need Funds Now

If your bills are piling up but you can't work due to an injury, you need to get legal compensation. The last thing you want to do is wait for your settlement or judgment and call your creditors for yet another month to assure them that payment is forthcoming. You need to get the money you're owed for lost wages and personal injury compensation. A settlement is the best way to get funds quickly.

You Need to Reach a Settlement Agreement

While TV shows love to have courtroom drama, most of the time, the ideal situation for you and your personal injury lawyer is to never see the inside of a courtroom. Your personal injury lawyer will do their best to get you the settlement that you need so that you can get on with healing. The sooner your settlement is reached, the sooner you can put the accident behind you.

You Need Representation in Court

In law, your final resort is the courts, and here, you need a personal injury attorney to represent your needs. You deserve to be fully compensated for injuries that are not your fault. Having a competent, determined, and ethical attorney to guide you through the legal system when you're injured is a must.

If you were injured due to someone else's negligence, working with a personal injury attorney allows you to fight for the compensation you deserve. Whether you're looking for a fast settlement or representation in court, you need a lawyer on your side. Call the Law Office of Frederick K. Wilson II to schedule a free consultation today.
