When Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

If you have been injured as a result of another party’s malicious intent, negligence or carelessness, and you would like to receive proper compensation for the damages caused – it would be wise to consult with a personal injury lawyer.

While your own medical insurance might take care of the initial hospital bills – some injuries have long term effects and require continuous treatment, therapy or medication that may not be covered by your insurance package. In cases like this, it may be in your best interest to consult with a personal injury lawyer. Many personal injury lawyers provide free initial consultation and case evaluation services – they will assess your case and tell you honestly whether there is enough reason to hire a lawyer. Their legal council may mean the difference between getting the compensation you deserve and getting outmanoeuvred by an insurance company.

The most general personal injury cases involve injuries sustained from vehicular accidents, medical malpractice, workplace equipment, product or machine malfunctions and so on. While these are the most easily identified, there are a number of scenarios that are more difficult to categorize. With the help of a personal injury lawyer, you can build a case that may entitle you to some form of damage compensation. Here are some examples of circumstances in which you might consider hiring a personal injury lawyer:

  • If you have sustained serious injuries which may have long term effects.
  • If you have been in a vehicular accident and the parties involved cannot come to an agreement on who was at fault.
  • If you have been in a vehicular accident and the other driver is not insured.
  • If the offending party or their insurance company appears to be in a hurry to arrive at a settlement without legal council.
  • If you have sustained serious injuries while using a product according to the manufacturers instructions and adhering to safety guidelines.
  • If you have sustained serious injuries due to a defective product.
  • If you have sustained serious injuries due to neglect and inappropriate care.
  • If you have been subjected to hazardous materials that may cause long term health problems.
  • If you have been involved in an accident wherein someone else was seriously injured or has died.

In most scenarios, the offending party is protected by some form of insurance. If this is the case, it would be best not to communicate with their insurance company until after your injuries have been properly evaluated by a doctor and you have received legal advice from a personal injury lawyer. Keep in mind that the offending party’s insurance company will try its best to pay you the least amount of damages as possible, regardless if you are actually entitled to much more. They may even attempt to get you to sign a document – stating that you will not file charges in exchange for a certain amount. A personal injury lawyer will guide you throughout the process of suing for justifiable compensation.

If you decide to take legal action and hire a personally injury lawyer, do not expect a large paycheck immediately. It may take a while for you and the defending party to come to a settlement, and if you do not, then you will have to go to trial – which may or may not end in your favour. However, if the evidence is sufficient and the case is strong, then your personal injury lawyer should not have a difficult time getting you a better compensation than what the defendant’s insurance company might have offered.

In the event that someone else involved in the case was seriously injured or has died, there will most likely be criminal and/or civil consequences you could face. It would be in your best to hire an attorney as soon as possible to protect your interests.
