After suffering an injury, you have enough to worry about. It’s doubtful that you’re looking forward to fielding questions from the insurance company and wading through piles of forms and other paperwork. You want to focus on one thing: healing.
You may think that retaining a personal injury attorney is another tedious and time-consuming task that will sap your much-needed energy while you’re trying to rest and recuperate after an injury. You may think about putting it off until you have more stamina. There are two very good reasons why you shouldn’t.
First, the law limits the amount of time you have to file a claim after an injury. Since there is often a period of negotiations to attempt resolution before going to court, it’s important not to delay consulting with a lawyer regarding your case.
The other reason not to delay working with an attorney is that most of what you’re going through is going to get much easier as soon as you do. Once you retain a law firm and give your lawyer permission to negotiate on your behalf, there’s little more you’ll need to do—other than focus on recovering from your injuries.
Your lawyer will take care of much more than the court-related tasks you may initially think of. Insurance companies and lien holders know that an attorney has not only the ability to file lawsuits but also a comprehensive knowledge of the law that most injury victims do not possess on their own.
Insurance companies don’t like to hear you say, “Speak to my lawyer.” And with good reason: The insurance company is not on your side—your lawyer is.
Your lawyer and the firm’s support staff will do all the research, talk to witnesses, and hire experts. We’ll negotiate on your behalf, and if a settlement can’t be reached, we’ll file your case in a court of law. If your case goes to trial, your attorney will continue to negotiate on your behalf, backed by years of experience in cases similar to yours.
