Why Do You Need to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Why Do You Need to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Becoming the victim of an accident, or falling prey to the negligence of another person can be devastating to your life, and the lives of your family. There is no reason why you should be expected to shoulder all of the responsibility alone, and possibly be left bankrupt with no assistance, or ability to get back on your feet.

In most personal injury cases, you’ll need to make sure that you have your medical expenses covered, as well as any financial loss you will incur due to a loss of work time.

The best way you can achieve this is by retaining the services of a qualified legal team from The Law Offices of James A. Welcome. Our Connecticut injury attorneys have extensive experience in personal injury law, as well as a record of success in winning such cases.

Trying to traverse these tricky legal waters on your own is an ill-advised idea unless you have some background on the subject. There are just too many things to consider, including all of the intricacies involved even an average case with no exceptional circumstances.

Trying to put together and defend your case without any legal qualifications will more than likely cost you more in the long run, than if you retained the services of a professional who knows the ropes from the very start.

You should also consider that even if the person you are suing wants to settle out of court on the advice of their insurer that what may sound like a good idea that saves time and puts money in your
pocket might not be the best for you over the long term.

Insurance companies are notorious for making offers that fall far too short of what you would receive through a court proceeding. Insurance companies are not in the business of paying claims and will
utilize many forms of veiled deception to get you to settle for less than what your case is worth.

This is where quality representation will benefit you the most. A professional like Attorney James A. Welcome will be able to tell immediately if the settlement offer is worth your time, or if you should
prepare to go to court to get what is rightfully yours.

As has been stated, personal injury cases and the laws that govern them are incredibly complicated matters, and it is vital to your well being that you elect counsel that is up to the task of fighting for you
to ensure that you get everything you are entitled to.

What it all comes down to is, if you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, or intentional misconduct you deserve to be fully compensated for whatever financial loss you have incurred. This includes all medical bills, lost wages, damage to property, loss of future wage potential, and also a value for any pain and suffering you have endured due to the incident in question.

All research indicates that those filing claims that have retained the proper legal counsel are the ones who receive the larger settlements or decisions from the court proceedings than those who choose to go into battle alone.

Here are more reasons why it is a good idea for you to do the proper diligence to locate the best personal injury lawyer near you and why Attorney James A. Welcome is the best fit:

  1. Experience – A well qualified personal injury attorney will likely have tried many cases very similar to yours and will know exactly what needs to be done and in what order to make sure that you receive the maximum benefit of their assistance. Their understanding of the law will be invaluable, especially when it comes to dealing with less-than-scrupulous insurance companies whom you can bet will have their army of lawyers who will be trying to give you as little compensation as they can get away with.
  2. Time Saver – The amount of paperwork, and administrative requirements of sifting through police and accident reports, medical records, and then having to speak with countless witnesses, opposing counsel, and others will be daunting. In fact, for most, this tedious process will be far outside of their scope of experience and leave them susceptible to being taken advantage of simply through a lack of knowledge. Don’t let a simple clerical misstep cost you thousands of dollars that are rightfully yours by trying to litigate your case alone when a professional team from The Law Offices of James A. Welcome will do all of this for you in a fraction of the time.
  3. Objectivity is a Key Element – If you or a loved one has been severely injured, you are likely angry, frustrated, and not in the best mental state to handle the stresses brought on by a lawsuit. Being able to remain rational through a tough situation involving trauma is not often something many people can do. This is why retaining a competent attorney who can remain objective will go further by getting you the results you want from your personal injury lawsuit.
  4. Lawyer Speak – Even the very words being spoken in a courtroom, or litigation setting can be enough to leave the layman’s head spinning. Legal “nomenclature” can be so complicated that it may even seem to the uninitiated that an entirely different language is being spoken, and in fact, it is. You’ll need a good lawyer on your side to keep up with the double-speak, and tactics being used by the opposing lawyers to make sure you are not being taken advantages of or agreeing to something that you “think” you understand only to find out later that slick talk has misled you.
  5. Higher Settlements – This one is the most important to the average plaintiff. It might not seem like it should be this way, but the fact is that people who hire their attorneys in cases of personal injury receive more money in the end than those who chose to go into the fray alone. Even after deducting the legal fees, you will leave the experience with more money in your account than had you tried to win the case all alone. That’s important if you have encountered excessive medical bills and injuries that will affect your ability to create future income.

Once you begin to see the complexities and how involved a personal injury case can be, it won’t take you long to realize that the only real option you have is to be properly teamed up with an expert in the legal field. Someone who knows the ropes who is on your side is an indispensable weapon against unethical behavior, and the possibility of receiving less than what you have coming to you.

When it comes to winning your injury case you don’t want to leave anything up to chance, or guesswork. Hire an expert who can get you everything you are owed. It is worth the price.
