Do You Really Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Any citizen can represent himself or herself in a court of law. You are not required to hire a personal injury lawyer in order to file a claim against a negligent party. But because of the complicated and changing nature of the legal system, hiring a personal injury attorney has many benefits. Listed below are three reasons why hiring an attorney to assist your personal injury case is helpful:

  • Comprehensive research. An attorney performs the necessary investigative research that your case may need. This can include everything from pulling up doctor bills and notes to personally interviewing witnesses.
  • Knowledgeable legal guidance. Anyone can read up and study the law, but it is a lawyer’s job to know it inside and out. Having someone who can provide you with sound legal counsel throughout the entire process, assist with paper work, and if necessary, represent you in court could make the difference between winning and losing your case.
  • Receiving fair compensation. It is the insurance companies’ goal to save as much money as possible. Because of this, they often offer low settlements in hopes that the plaintiff will be duped into settling. An experienced personal injury lawyer knows what a fair settlement should be and will advise you accordingly.

Although many people don’t hire lawyers because they want to save money, it’s important to remember most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning they only get paid if they win the case. And winning your case with the help of a qualified personal injury attorney is far cheaper than losing the case on your own.
