When you are in an accident, your world can seem to spin endlessly. You are asked to fill out forms at the hospital, the insurance company has called and asked for a statement, you might miss work or need to schedule ongoing physical therapy appointments, and you can even find yourself unable to sleep. It can be confusing to know what to tackle first after an accident, and this can cause you to miss out on receiving the full extent of medical care needed for your injuries, or for you to take a misstep when trying to resolve the case on your own. In order to avoid missing out on what you deserve, it is imperative to speak with an experienced attorney.
This is made all the more true if the accident caused serious injuries, or even the wrongful death of a loved one. The importance of using an attorney with experience in these areas, as well as in personal injury cases in general is:
- An experienced attorney will know just how long you have to file your case, and will make sure it is done on time. Putting this vital piece of your case in the hands of an attorney with less experience might cost you your case, if the deadline is missed. Rather than take a chance, the smart choice is to let an attorney that has a proven track record handle your matter.
- More seasoned attorneys have heard it all, have seen how the insurance companies attempt to pay out less than what is fair, and have experience negotiating with those companies.
- Personal injury attorneys with experience in these types of cases are more familiar with the medical terms used, and are better able to assess the parts of your case that require this type of specialized knowledge.
- Attorneys with a great deal of experience in personal injury cases, and especially those involving serious injuries or wrongful death, will likely have dealt with the defendant’s insurance company and/or attorney in the past. Previous working relationships help to move your case along smoothly and efficiently.
