Accidents happen to everyone, but sometimes accidents are the direct result of someone else's negligence. If you’ve recently been hurt, you probably have a lot of thoughts going through your head, like — “How am I going to pay for my medical bills?”, “What am I going to do if I can’t work?” and “My car is totaled, how am I going to afford another one?” Even if you have insurance, it can take time to process the claim and receive your money, and in some instances, the insurance company may even deny your claim.
Four Instances When You Should Hire An Injury Attorney
Insurance Refuses To Pay
Sometimes the most frustrating thing about getting injured is dealing with insurance companies. It’s bad enough that you’re hurt, but when an insurance company refuses to pay for all of your expenses, it just adds insult to injury. Don’t just take what they want to give you or try to negotiate with them yourself, you need an experienced injury lawyer on your side to help you navigate the complex California personal injury laws and fight for what is owed to you.
Why Hire an Injury Attorney?
Getting hurt in an accident can be devastating, and it only makes things worse if the accident wasn’t your fault. When you’re dealing with pain and trying to recover, you just want to get better. But oftentimes, there’s a long road ahead. Perhaps your injury caused you to miss a significant amount of work time. If your injury is bad enough, maybe you won’t be able to return to your job at all. This is just one example of what can happen, but there are several other possible consequences including damage to property, significant and on-going medical expenses, and emotional distress.
Although you may hesitate to contact an injury lawyer thinking that you don’t want to have to deal with one more thing — it can actually be one of the best decisions you make during this difficult and trying time. An injury lawyer can help you gather the documents you need to build your case. They can help answer any legal questions you may have and give you peace of mind knowing that you have someone in your corner to advocate for you. While money can’t make your injuries go away, getting a settlement can help with your suffering and alleviate some of your worry about how you’ll pay for expenses.
