Consulting an Attorney

When you Need a Lawyer to Handle Your Personal Injury Claim
Significant injuries and accidents almost always require that you consult a lawyer. The skills of an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you at all stages of your case. You may need a lawyer because of complex legal rules involved in your claim, or because the severity of your injuries might cause your compensation to vary greatly from the norm, or simply because an insurance company refuses to settle a matter in good faith.

Long-Term or Permanently Disabling Injuries
Some accidents result in injuries that significantly affect your physical capabilities or appearance for a long time, over a year, or even permanently. Figuring out how much such a serious injury is worth can be a difficult business. You’ll probably require some assistance from an experienced lawyer from the very beginning.

Severe Injuries
The amount of your accident compensation is mostly determined by how severe your injuries were. The severity of your injuries is measured by how quickly you sought treatment, the amount of your medical bills, the type of injury and the length of time it takes for you to recover. As the amount of your potential compensation increases, it may be worth the expense to have a lawyer handle your claim and to make sure you receive fair compensation

When an Insurance Company Refuses to Pay
In some instances, regardless of the nature of your injury or the amount of your medical bills and lost income, you will want to hire a lawyer because an insurance company or government agency simply refuses to make a fair settlement offer.
