Four Reasons to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer


Four Reasons to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

I’m Ed Smith, a Woodland personal injury lawyer. After you or someone you care about is involved in an accident, the thought of hiring a personal injury lawyer might cross your mind. Below, I will go over the top four reasons to hire a personal injury lawyer.

Personal Injury Lawyers Know the Value of Your Case

Personal injury lawyers handle only personal injury cases, finding an experienced personal injury lawyer guarantees that your case will be in good hands with someone who truly knows the value of your case. Many determining factors go into putting a value on a personal injury case, such as damages, liability, and the ability to collect damages.

Personal Injury Lawyers Care About Your Best Interests

When you hire a personal injury lawyer, you will receive personal professional representation by someone who above all else is looking out for you and your best interests. Typically, personal injury attorneys sole responsibility is ensuring you’re treated fairly in recovering damages associated with your case.

Personal Injury Lawyers Handle the Case While You Recover

After an accident, your main concern should be recovering from your injuries. Worrying about trying to handle a claim yourself can cause unnecessary stress to your body while you recover. Insurance companies are in the business of making money; they do so by paying out on a claim as little as possible. It’s a well-known fact that insurance companies pay individuals far less in damages when they are not represented by a personal injury attorney. Generally speaking, a good rule of thumb is: the more serious your injuries are, the more serious the need for a reputable and experienced personal injury attorney is.

Personal Injury Lawyers Get a Trial Setting

More often than not, the first time an insurance company gets truly serious about a personal injury case is when there is a trial on the horizon. Unfortunately, those who try to represent themselves do not have the training or experience necessary to take their own case to trial and be successful in the outcome.
