Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
The initial hours after sustaining an injury are crucial, not only for your health, but also for securing the legal representation you need. The sooner you contact a personal injury lawyer after an injury, the sooner you can rest assured that you will get the legal support you need to fully recover your health and resources via a favorable claim, settlement and/or adjudication process.
Evidence of the causes of your injuries must be gathered immediately to build a strong groundwork for your case and help you get the medical care, benefits, and financial settlement you are entitled to. To quickly and professionally gather and document complex evidence like skid marks, faulty lighting, unsafe construction and other factors, you need a lawyer with expertise.
If you have been injured in an accident and are unsure whether or not to seek counsel, or you could be wondering how to hire a personal injury attorney, learn more about the benefits of hiring a lawyer below.
Even if you are unsure whether to seek legal assistance, visiting a personal injury lawyer for a consultation is worth it because consultations are typically free and offer a valuable, expert opinion on the merits of your claim. Even beyond free consultations, most personal injury lawyers will not charge you upfront for personal injury cases.
Maximize Your Compensation and Medical Care
Whether you were the driver, passenger or a pedestrian, you are legally entitled to full legal representation, care and compensation. Even if you are at fault in an accident, you are entitled to all of these benefits. A personal injury lawyer can help protect your rights and ensure that you receive the complete compensation you deserve.
This removes any roadblocks and gives you the peace of mind you deserve on your road to recovery. We will even make sure that your rights are protected with your employer while you are away. We specialize in disability and dismissal law.
Access to Outside Experts
The access you’ll have to outside experts when you work with a personal injury lawyer is irreplaceable. From safety and medical professionals, to private investigators and CPAs, lawyers have large rosters of professionals who will aid in the fight for your rights. At Himelfarb Proszanski, we rely on only top medical experts to evaluate and assess your case. This ensures that we can build irrefutable proof of the seriousness of your injuries that cannot be denied by insurance agencies.
One of the most stressful parts of an accident is dealing with insurance companies. When you hire a personal injury lawyer, they will work with insurance companies on your behalf, reducing your stress level so you can focus on the rest of your life.
Experience You Need
The insurance system for accident benefits has become increasingly complex in recent years. The Minor Injury Guideline introduced in September 2010 drastically reduced maximum medical and rehabilitation benefits, in some cases from $100,000 to $3,500. The MIG currently applies to 65% of all claims. Due to these changes, you need a personal injury lawyer who understands how to navigate the legal system and maximize your benefits. When you choose Himelfarb Proszanski, your case will be built to ensure that you are fairly compensated. That’s just part of the HimPro Advantage™.
Avoid Problems with Insurance Paperwork and Limitations
When you report an accident to your insurance company, you’ll be inundated with complex forms and paperwork. Additionally, many insurance policies have complex limitations, exclusions, time-sensitive deadlines, and other provisions that can affect the coverage you are allowed or cause your claim to be denied. A personal injury lawyer can help you complete the paperwork quickly and accurately to protect your interests as you move forward with your claim.
Get the Compensation You Are Entitled To
Many people lose thousands of dollars because they are unsure how much compensation they can expect from a personal injury claim. A personal injury lawyer who understands the subtleties of your case, like the value of your pain and suffering, is invaluable. Your lawyer can also handle issues that arise if compensation needs change over the course of your medical treatment.
A Full Understanding of the Legal Process
Gaps in legal knowledge can give an insurance company the ammunition it needs to win a case on a technicality. Working with a personal injury lawyer who understands how to mediate and litigate your claim will ensure that you don’t lose out on thousands of dollars simply because you didn’t follow a minor legal procedure.
Improved Odds of Winning Your Case
Insurance companies know that they have the knowledge and bargaining power to make sure you get the lowest settlement possible. By enlisting the help of a personal injury lawyer, you will prevent insurance companies from taking advantage of your lack of knowledge and improve the odds of receiving the highest settlement possible.
A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Take Your Case to Trial
Statistics show that most accident injury cases never go to trial, but are settled out of court instead. Having a personal injury lawyer to represent you shows insurance companies that you are prepared to go to trial, which motivates them to settle more quickly and equitably.
Someone Experienced To Talk To
Personal injury claims can be frightening and frustrating, but a personal injury lawyer will be there for you throughout every step in the process. Your lawyer will be available to answer questions through calls and emails, and provide valuable advice you need to feel confident throughout the legal process.
"The law isn't justice. It's a very imperfect mechanism. If you press exactly the right buttons and are also lucky, justice may show up in the answer. A mechanism is all the law was ever intended to be." ~Raymond Chandler
