If you have been in an auto accident, you may think you have an uphill battle against an insurance company in front of you. Following an accident, some people try to deal directly with the insurance company, thinking that that is their only option. However, having a personal injury attorney assist you with your claim can mean the difference between an unfair outcome and one that will fully and fairly compensate you, without all the hassle and headaches of dealing with an insurance adjuster. A personal injury attorney cannot make your injuries seem more severe than they are or get away with asking for an egregious amount of damages. They can, however, present your case to the insurance company in such a light that helps you recover a fair and just settlement within a reasonable time frame. These are the two outcomes that can be best achieved by a personal injury attorney and can make a big difference in your post-accident life.
It is important to note that most experienced personal injury attorneys will work on a contingent fee basis. This means that their fee will depend on what you recover; if you are not awarded any damages, they do not get any attorney fee. In this respect, they take a risk on every case and will work very hard to obtain you a favorable settlement. Don’t hesitate to consult with a personal injury attorney with any questions about the personal injury case process. Even if you do not plan to hire an attorney, gaining an understanding of the process can help you make informed decisions about your case. The personal injury attorney serves as an advocate to an injured plaintiff. They inform the plaintiff of their rights and present to them the options they have for pursuing compensation. Then, having experience working with insurance companies and individuals alike, a personal injury attorney can ensure the insurance company does not take advantage of you, but rather settles your case in a fair and timely manner so you can move on with your life fairly compensated.
