To the question Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer? The truth is it depends.
Depending on the factors involved in your case, you may be able to resolve your issues without a lawyer. For example, if you were involved in a car accident that damaged only your vehicle, then you can likely navigate the process of getting your car fixed without an attorney.
However, if any accident, automobile or otherwise, results in personal bodily injury or loss of life, then the guidance of a personal injury attorney may prove beneficial. Truly, every case is fact-specific, so there are no hard-and-fast rules for evaluating a claim.
If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident, or if a loved one lost their life in an accident, we encourage you to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney. Most reputable personal injuries attorneys offer free consultations. It is worth a small investment of your time to ensure you know your legal rights. If you’re in the Omaha, NE area meet with us for a free consultation.
The Insurance Company is Goliath
Insurance companies have vast resources. As we explained in Tips For Dealing With Insurance Companies After A Car Accident, the insurance company is not your friend. They are looking after their own best interests, not yours.
The insurance company is Goliath, but with a fierce advocate by your side you don’t have to be the underdog. If you’ve suffered injuries your damages may include medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Don’t let the insurance company pressure you into settling your claim for less than its full value.
In cases that require calculation of damages for bodily injury, working with a personal injury attorney helps to ensure the best possible outcome for your case.
