Hiring the Right Lawyer for Your Personal Injury

Friday, Mar. 25th 2016

If you’re having heart issues, you don’t schedule an appointment with a foot doctor. The same logic applies to hiring a lawyer after a serious car accident. If you or a loved one was hurt in the collision, you probably shouldn’t call your tax attorney for help. You should contact an experienced attorney specializing in personal injury law.

Personal Injury Law is Complex

Some people may think, “car accident cases are easy, any lawyer can handle them.” This is wrong on so many levels. Personal injury law can be quite complex. For example, if you were involved in a multi-vehicle collision, there are could be multiple insurance carriers that need to be contacted to determine available coverage and which party is liable for the harms caused by the wreck. There is vital evidence that must be collected and you can be quite certain each insurance company involved is going to have a defense attorney ready to try and minimize your claim.

What if the driver who hit you does not have auto insurance, or has minimal coverage? A general practitioner may not understand the nuances of uninsured and underinsured motorist law. What about potentially stacking your medical expense benefits? Again, this is where hiring an experienced Norfolk personal injury lawyer pays dividends.

Lawyers are not “one-size-fits-all.” In fact, most attorneys are specialists. When a lawyer specializes in personal injury law, it means they spend the majority of their days representing injured folks in their time of need. They understand how to negotiate with claims adjusters and are not afraid to take your case all the way to trial.

Reputation Matters to the Insurance Companies

If you file an injury claim with an insurance company, even your own insurance company, a component of their evaluation of your claim may be the experience and success rate of the attorney you hired. If your lawyer has a track record of taking cases to trial and getting large verdicts, that is likely to play a factor in the insurance company’s calculus for whether to settle your claim or not. This is why hiring a highly experienced car accident lawyer is such a tremendous benefit.

I’m on a Budget – Can I Really Afford an Experienced Car Accident Lawyer?

Yes. A vast majority of personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This basically means that you can hire an experienced car accident lawyer without paying anything up front and your lawyer will only get compensated when, or if, your case gets resolved through a settlement, judgment, or jury verdict. This means hiring a seasoned personal injury attorney is a low risk, high reward proposition.

If you have been injured and would like information about how to best pursue compensation, please do not hesitate to contact the Northland Injury Law firm for a free consultation at 816-400-4878. An attorney experienced in the field of personal injury law specific to your accident will be ready to advise you of your options and counsel you through this difficult time.
