While you’re on the search for a good lawyer or legal help for your accident, you may be wondering how exactly hiring a lawyer will get you more out of your settlement.
It has been proven that hiring an attorney to work on your case will get you more money. According to www.alllaw.com, “this fact is evidenced by a 1999 study by the Insurance Research Council who concluded that, on average, claimants represented by a lawyer received 3 ½ times the settlement money as those without.”
Good, experienced attorneys will fight aggressively to win you compensation not only for your medical expenses, but also for your pain and suffering. They know exactly what strategies to use to negotiate with the insurance companies, and they know that the insurance company is working to protect their own interests. While it may seem like the insurance company should be there to help you, they are looking to keep their money and pay out as little as possible. Without a good attorney on your side, insurance companies will complicate matters for you, make it difficult to win the amount you deserve, and likely give you lowball offers.
Another reason to consider hiring an attorney for your case is that car accident injuries are not always cut and dry; they can get worse over time unexpectedly, or you can suddenly start experiencing pain after you thought you were going to be fine. An attorney and experienced legal staff will work to communicate with insurance companies, handle paperwork, and make sure your bills are getting paid so that you can focus on getting better.
