Key Reasons You Should Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

The statistics for personal injuries in the United States are staggering. Every year over 31 million people are injured and require medical care. Approximately two million of those people have injuries that require them to be hospitalized. Additionally, there are over three million injuries from automobile and truck accidents alone. Fatalities from personal injury are estimated to be over 200,000 annually.

If you or a loved one has been injured through the negligence of another party, you have the right to file a tort claim seeking damages. When you have been seriously injured, your life is turned upside down. You will likely incur lost time and wages at work, need very expensive medical treatments and doctors’ services and endure pain and suffering on your road to recovery. If the injury resulted in a fatality, your family may struggle to recover both financially and emotionally. A good personal injury attorney can help you fight for what you need to make it through this very difficult time.

What Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Do for You

When you have been severely injured you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and your lost wages, earning power and more. The at fault party may have insurance, but getting fair payments from an opposing insurance company is no simple task. They have the resources of a large corporation and countless legal advocates on staff. You need an expert in personal injury law on your side, someone who stands up for your interests and fights for the compensation you deserve.

A personal injury lawyer can represent you on cases involving car accidents, public transportation accidents, workplace injuries, slips, trips and falls, and injuries from chemicals or toxic substances. If you have been injured through the negligence or incompetence of a hospital or doctor, they can help you with your medical malpractice claim. They are familiar with the intricacies and complexities of the law and can help guide you to the best resolution for your case.

You Need Someone to Stand Up for You

In many cases, insurance companies or government agencies do not negotiate in good faith. You need someone in your corner who is going to stand up for your rights and fight to assure you are adequately compensated. Your personal injury lawyer can help cut through all the red tape and can stand up to the insurance company when they fail to do what is right.

Your personal injury attorney will have the resources to fully evaluate your claim, and can save you time by handling all the administrative aspects such as requesting medical reports, review accident reports and more. If necessary, they can take your case to trial or reach a settlement that gives you what you need.

When you have been injured, you need time to recuperate and heal so you can get on with your life. Hiring a personal injury lawyer who is highly qualified to represent you is a very important first step to helping you get your life back together again.
