Every year, an insurance company on average receives 4 lakh claims for personal injury, out of which only about four percent of the claims go to trial. Why is that? With almost filling a personal injury claim, it’s impossible for insurance companies to grant compensation. This is the very reason why insurance companies are known to be notorious when it comes to avoiding payouts and most often than not trying to undermine your case. If you got injured in an accident and are considering filing a claim, chances are you’ll be facing a similar situation. To pivot your chances of rejection, work with our firm.
Is having a personal injury lawyer necessary?
Technically, the answer is no. You can always choose to represent yourself in the court. But we wouldn’t advise it. Unless you’re working in the same domain and are familiar with the nitty-gritty of the legal procedure, there’s a good chance you’ll make a mistake that would lower your chances of getting compensation. On top of that, you will not be able to correctly evaluate the value of compensation that you are entitled. Since a seasoned lawyer has years of experience dealing with such cases and has studied extensively, they will correctly be able to assess the value of the damages you suffered. It is because of these very reasons that we recommend that you get the help of a professional.
What are some other things a lawyer will be able to help you with?
Assuming that you are the one who got into an accident, you already have a lot on your plate and you shouldn’t have to worry more about gathering evidence to demonstrate the other party was at fault for the accident. Since evidence is at the core of these cases, you cannot even disregard the importance. This is where the lawyer will step in and help you out by gathering all the evidence associated with the accident, taking a load of pressure off your shoulders.
Another important aspect a lawyer will be able to help you out with is negotiating with the insurance company. As we already are quite aware, the insurance company will try their level best to offer you a settlement that’s practically a lowball offer. You are entitled to more compensation than these insurance companies are willing to offer. A lawyer will be able to help you get the amount of compensation you rightfully deserve.
