4 Signs It’s Time to Hire a Serious Injury Lawyer

April 14, 2016 | Personal Injury Claims

Personal injuries aren’t always immediately obvious at the time of an accident, which is why it is important to know when to hire a serious personal injury lawyer. You should consider obtaining legal representation if:

1. If you have bills (whether for vehicle repair or medical care) from the accident that you are struggling to pay. Your health insurance or auto insurance might not cover the full amount, so have a lawyer lend a hand to file a suit against the other party to cover your expenses.

2. If the party at fault has no insurance. If you were in an accident with someone who is not covered by insurance, you might need to file a lawsuit since a settlement from their insurer is not possible.

3. If you are struggling to file insurance claims. If you’ve never filed an insurance claim before, you may be unsure of what paperwork to include or what to say. Having an attorney makes this simpler, as they have the expertise you lack. They can work with you to properly submit forms so that you get the settlement you deserve.

4. If your insurance claims were denied. You might have tried to handle your claim alone, but if it was denied, it is possible that you were not treated fairly. After all, insurance companies want to avoid payment or settlement if at all possible. But with an attorney by your side, they won’t be able to take advantage of what you don’t know.
