At What Point Do I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

A personal injury accident is no laughing matter. One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they refuse to seek medical treatment or contact a lawyer after an accident because they say that they feel fine. What they do not realize is that the adrenaline pumping through their veins is preventing their bodies from feeling the effects of the accident. In some cases, it can take a couple of days before the signs of an injury can be seen. If it is a head injury, then it could be weeks and possibly even months before the victim feels the effects.

There are several dangers associated with waiting too long to get a lawyer involved in a personal injury case. Some of the more prominent issues include:

  • The time to file an insurance claim will run out
  • Evidence that could be used in the case disappears
  • Witnesses start to forget what happened
  • The other party has already started legal action against you

When it comes to personal injury accidents, there are several kinds which should immediately trigger the hiring of a lawyer. Some of the more obvious cases include:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Public transport accidents

Just because you do not immediately feel as though you need a lawyer after an accident does not mean you should ignore the fact that you need to hire one. A personal injury lawyer will insist that you get checked out by a certified medical expert and have any potential injuries identified immediately. The lawyer will also insist that you maintain your contact with the medical expert and do routine appointments to discuss any changes in your condition.

One of the most important things a lawyer will do for you is talk to and negotiate with the insurance companies. An insurance company will attempt to get you to settle for the smallest possible amount to prevent increased exposure to financial loss. Since the insurance companies are not working in your best interests, then you need to have someone who is concerned with protecting your financial rights. A lawyer will talk to the insurance companies for you and make sure that all of your financial needs are covered and that you get the settlement you deserve.

If this is your first personal injury accident, then you will not know the proper procedures to get the financial coverage you need. An experienced lawyer will know exactly what to do and who to contact to make sure that you get everything that you need. From the moment that you get involved in a personal injury accident, you need to have a good lawyer on your side to make sure that all of your rights are protected and your needs are provided for.
