3 Situations When a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help

Whether it happened at work, in a store, at a night club or on the road, the accident wasn’t your fault.


Somebody else, or somebody’s negligence, is the reason you have been physically hurt and financially affected. You file a claim with their insurance company and it’s either taking too much time or you are not receiving the response you are entitled to. 


Situation 1: The Insurance Company Doesn’t Help:

After a collision, a reasonable person might expect insurance companies to sort out what happened and simply pay for damages and medical expenses; when you’re hurt at work, workers compensation is expected to take care of you until you’re better. This may not always be the result. 

Insurance companies are not in the business of helping people; they exist in order to make money so if there is a way that they can avoid paying a claim, they will try to find it. This is why it is wise to have a personal injury attorney on your side to secure the best possible settlement. 


Situation 2: The Settlement Offer is Really Low:

Whatever insurance settlement offer you receive should cover property damage, pay your existing medical bills and replace whatever lost income or other damages you faced. That may not always be the case.

If you receive an offer you believe is too low, you are not legally obligated to accept the offer. Instead, contact an attorney to help get the compensation you deserve. 


Situation 3: Nobody is Accepting Liability

You are certain that you did not cause the collision. The other party caused injuries but refuses to accept responsibility. Larger companies and some insurance carriers may believe they can avoid you, but they absolutely cannot avoid the legal system.
