When Should You Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?

by | Oct 1, 2015 | Lawyers and Law Firms

There are times when the unique skills offered by a Waukegan personal injury attorney are well worth the money that you will have to pay. The law is extremely complex, it is not an area where laypeople have sufficient expertise to represent themselves when either the complexities of the claim or the severity of the injuries sustained may cause the award you are eventually granted to be considerably less than what is the norm. The same holds true if the insurance company fails to make an offer in good faith that is commensurate with the injury. There are a number of issues where an attorney is a must:

   * Long term or permanent disablement: Many accidents can have a long term effect on the individual, it is not uncommon for certain injuries to take at least a year to heal properly, in some cases they never do and result in permanent disability. It is very difficult to determine exactly how much this type of long term injury is worth, to maximize on your claim you will need the assistance of a personal injury attorney.

   * Severe injuries: The compensation that is applicable is often determined based on the severity of the injury; the severity of your injuries can easily be determined by looking at the total amount of your medical care, the type and location of the injury and the recovery time. Normally as the potential award gets higher the spread becomes wider, to ensure your compensation is on the high side of the range it is worth the cost of a seasoned attorney.

   * Medical malpractice: Medical malpractice cases are extremely complex. In the event you suffer an injury due to carelessness or incompetency on the part of a doctor, nurse, hospital or any other medical provider you will most certainly need to hire a Waukegan personal injury attorney.

   * Car accidents: If the other party involved in a car accident is at fault then there is recourse. If you attempt to settle independently and at fault party is represented by a lawyer from the insurance company you are at a serious disadvantage. You will need the services of a qualified personal injury attorney to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

These are but four common examples when having a skilled attorney will pay dividends. In many cases an attorney is needed when an insurance company refuses to settle regardless of how badly you were injured or how much you spent on medical care.
