You should call a personal injury lawyer after you are hurt in an accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, wrongdoing, or reckless actions. You should make your call before speaking with or making a recorded statement for the insurance company.
What Will It Cost?
Most personal injury lawyers offer complimentary consultations. During your consultation, the lawyer will review your situation at no cost and advise you if you have a personal injury claim.
Will I Have to Hire Them?
Whether you hire a personal injury lawyer after a consultation is your decision. If you do not think that particular lawyer is a good fit for you, interview another personal injury lawyer.
I am Speaking with an Adjuster. Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
There are many reasons you need a personal injury lawyer for a legitimate claim. Your lawyer’s job is to aggressively protect your best interests against the insurance company and to ensure you are paid fairly for your claim.
The insurance adjuster’s job is to pay as little as possible for your claim. Insurance adjusters work for insurance companies and must protect their employer’s best interests.
Also, there are teams of attorneys employed by insurance companies. Should your claim become a lawsuit, these attorneys are on-call to represent the insurance company. You deserve the same.
Call a Personal Injury Lawyer Right Away If:
If you are still unsure about when to call a personal injury lawyer, contact a lawyer should any of the following situations arise:
- Liability for your accident is disputed, or you cannot prove liability. A personal injury lawyer can conduct a thorough accident investigation to help;
- The insurance company shifts total or partial accident blame to you;
- You are partially at fault for your accident;
- The accident involves multiple parties;
- The accident is complex. Medical malpractice cases, accidents involving trucking companies, and defective product cases are examples of difficult cases;
- You are partially or totally disabled, suffered permanent disfigurement, or need lifelong medical care;
- The insurance company is stalling, denying a valid claim, or acting in bad faith; or
- Your accident involves the government or a government employee.
Remember that personal injury claims have different statutes of limitations or deadlines for filing. Claims involving the government usually have the shortest statutes of limitations.
It is always prudent to ask a personal injury lawyer for information about your claim’s statute of limitations. Claims filed outside of their deadline do not qualify for compensation.
