Why Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer Is Important

Imagine being involved in an accident. You gather the right information, take pictures of the scene, and do everything you feel is necessary after an accident. Unfortunately, you go to file a claim with the insurance company, but your claim is disputed.

This is a situation that happens often and it generally stems from the insurance company’s desire to pay out as little as possible to the injured party, regardless of whether their policyholder was negligent and has the coverage necessary to pay out these claims.

As a result, you may receive a settlement offer from the insurance company that is inadequate for the damages you sustained. This makes it critical to hire a lawyer to help when it comes to pursuing a lawsuit against the negligent party.

A Lawyer Has Access to Resources to Help Your Case

When it comes to pursuing a personal injury claim against someone who caused you harm, there are a number of factors that need to be considered to prove that negligence existed. Liability typically relies on four underlying factors, including:

  • A duty of care: It must be shown that the negligent driver owed you a reasonable duty of care.
  • A breach in the duty of care: It must be shown that the driver breached that duty of care by acting in a reckless manner (e.g. drinking and driving, distracted driving, etc.)
  • A breach led to an accident: It must be shown that the breach in the duty of care directly resulted in an accident.
  • An accident led to the injury: It must be shown that the injury sustained was a direct result of the accident.

In order to prove these things, certain resources are needed. For instance, a lawyer can help you with medical records proving the injury, as well as accident reports detailing that the defendant was negligent in their actions and caused the accident. Having a lawyer also means having access to:

  • Expert witnesses,
  • Medical professionals
  • Accident reconstructionists
  • And more

This can help you build a strong case moving forward.

Protecting Your Rights from Unscrupulous Insurance Companies

Far too often, insurance companies are looking out for their own profits. They’re not looking to help injured individuals with rightful payouts. Instead, they offer low settlements in hopes of avoiding long, contentious court proceedings.

Should you decline to accept this offer and go to trial, the insurance company often tries to use their large legal teams in an attempt to turn the case around and put the fault on you. This is a violation of your rights as an injured individual and you deserve the right to protect your best interests.

Hiring a lawyer helps you combat the tactics often used by insurance companies and can position you in a manner that focuses on helping you succeed. You can feel confidence knowing that you have a legal advocate in your corner prepared to stand up for what’s right for you.
