You were recently involved in an accident and sustained long-term injuries with no end in sight. You know that ever since your accident, you will undergo treatment, rehabilitation, miss time at work, and so much more – and the bills have been adding up. Most people feel helpless when they are unable to pay for these aspects and there seems to be no end in sight. When you have received extensive injuries, you may wonder where to turn because you don’t want to handle your case on your own. When is it time to turn to an experienced attorney?
Reasons to Leave Your Case in the Hands of an Attorney
When to take a case: An experienced attorney will tell you what they expect from your case. An attorney will be able to look at every angle of your case and determine whether or not it makes sense to move forward. If they believe that you will not be able to win your case, you can avoid the time and expense of prepping your case.
Red tape: You may not understand medical terms and the paperwork that you’ll have to deal with when you’re making your claim. As a result, an attorney will be able to meet with you and walk you through every step of the process.
Investigations: Attorneys tend to work with investigators to examine your case from different angles and provide important information related to your injuries.
ADR, when necessary: You may even be referred to a process known as “alternative dispute resolution.” This is because the trial isn’t needed in every personal injury case out there. ADR is a great way to save time and money, such as mediation and arbitration. It could lessen your stress.
Experience with attorneys: When you’re working with the other party’s attorney and believe that they’re not playing by the rules or twisting information, an experienced attorney will be able to help you every step of the way.
Experience with insurance: Insurance companies tend to pressure you and give you less than what your case is worth in many instances. An experienced attorney will be able to help you work with these insurance companies and ensure that your case is treated fairly.
Best settlements: Going to settlement can sometimes save you stress over taking matters to trial. We will work with you to get the best settlement over resolving your case in court if we can avoid it.
Best verdicts: If your case absolutely has to go to trial, an attorney can represent your side in court and work toward the best results. You will be able to receive all the compensation you are entitled to.
If your injuries are minor and you haven’t dealt with any adverse effects since the initial hospital or doctor’s visit, you may not consider a claim. But if you have suffered damaging effects or you know that you’ll be dealing with your injuries for a long time, you may want to hire an attorney to help you fight for your rights so that you aren’t left in the dust when it comes to compensation you deserve. At the JD Haas and Associates, we understand that help from an experienced attorney is what it takes to get the best results after a serious injury. We can help you with many aspects of civil litigation and want to be there for you through the whole process. Call us today for more information at 952-342-1025.
