When Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

March 11, 2021

Serious accidents can be difficult to overcome. You may have done everything you could to avoid the accident, but now you’re hurt, and the at-fault party doesn’t want to take responsibility. You need help, but when is the right time to hire a lawyer?

If you’re struggling to face your California personal injury claim, reach out to a reputable attorney to have your case reviewed.

After a Serious Injury

When you’re hurt in a serious accident, you shouldn’t have to pay for the injuries, expenses, and trauma you suffered from your own pocket. Your injuries may be severe, from a serious head injury to a paralyzing back injury. Recovery and rehabilitation may be expensive, and you may be suffering intangible pain and mental trauma.

You may not have the tools to seek out coverage for these injuries, costs, and trauma. Because of this, you may need a personal injury attorney to step in. They have the tools to help you seek a settlement or take your claim to court when you’re seriously injured by the at-fault party. If you’re injured and they’re not paying, or if you suspect they’re paying less than they should, reach out to a lawyer.

Before You Speak to the Insurance Company

When you’re injured in a serious accident, you may think of turning to the insurance company instead. Your policy is supposed to cover you when you’re hurt. But that doesn’t mean insurers always act in your best interests.

Insurance companies are for-profit businesses, and have entire departments designated to reducing or deny your claim to keep it’s profits high. Because of this, you may need a lawyer to defend your claim. You may not have experience writing demand letters and seeking compensation, but your lawyer does. Reach out for help settling, or for help taking the insurer to court for their bad-faith actions.
