Personal injury cases can be complex and it can be difficult to know if you even have a case to pursue. If you’ve been hurt in an accident, a personal injury attorney can help you with what to do next.
Here are four reasons to hire an experienced personal injury attorney.
Experience: Personal injury attorneys are experienced with cases like yours and can tell you at the beginning whether it is worth it to pursue legal action. If you are unlikely to win your case, you can avoid the time and expense of preparing for litigation.
Objectivity: If you find yourself in an accident, there is a high possibility that your judgment will be based on emotion and pain. When you have an attorney, they will be in a better position to decide on your behalf and make sure you will be compensated for the injuries incurred.
Settlements: Many personal injury cases are resolved by a negotiated settlement instead of a trial. Generally, a settlement means the plaintiff will give up the right to sue in exchange for a payment from the defendant or an insurance company. A personal injury attorney will negotiate a settlement on behalf of a client and try to resolve the case to create the best outcome for their client.
Alternative Dispute Resolution: Lengthy and complicated trials are not always necessary to resolve a case. An experienced attorney will know whether your case may be best worked out using alternative dispute resolution methods (ADR), thereby saving you time, money, and emotional energy. Common examples of ADR are mediation and arbitration.
