Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

What are the dangers of trying to represent yourself after an accident?

Deciding to forego the assistance of a personal injury attorney can come at great cost to you both financially and emotionally.  The experienced help of a New Jersey personal injury lawyer is vital to the success of your automobile accident or other personal injury related claim.  While it may be tempting to attempt to negotiate with the insurance company on your own, in doing so you risk accepting a settlement amount worth far less then you may have otherwise received.  

The following is a list of some of the top reasons why no accident victim should go without a personal injury attorney:

  1. The insurance company is looking out for its best interests, not yours:  The insurance company represents the person who injured you.  Some insurance adjusters can be kind and professional on the phone, but the insurance company is not ultimately concerned with seeing you recover for your losses.  The insurance will fight to see that it pays out the least amount possible, leaving you at risk of being left with unpaid medical expenses, uncompensated future losses, and more.
  2. Your attorney will be your advocate:  Your personal injury lawyer will serve as your strong mouthpiece.  He or she will advocate on your behalf with a focus on making sure you fully recover.  Unlike the insurance company, which does not have your best interests at heart, your attorney will be the knowledgeable professional you need by your side to present your case.
  3. Personal injury law is complex:  The field of personal injury law is complicated even for those trained in this specific type of law.  Your personal injury case may involve courtroom hearings and potentially even a trial.  Case law is constantly evolving and few laypeople will have the legal knowhow to build a strong personal injury claim.  As an accident victim, you need an attorney trained in the field to navigate your case.

The sooner you act to retain the assistance of a personal injury lawyer, the better your chances of achieving a settlement that will truly reimburse you for your losses.  Contact a personal injury lawyer in your area today to start on the path towards your financial recovery.
