What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer?

iLawyer October 26, 2020 Personal injury

If you or somebody you care about has been injured due to the careless or negligent actions of another individual, company, or entity, you should be entitled to various types of compensation for your losses. However, most injured individuals do not have the resources or legal expertise necessary to fully investigate their claim and obtain maximum compensation. Here, we want to discuss some of the benefits of hiring a personal injury lawyer to handle your case.

1. You do not have the time to handle a claim

You need to be focused on recovering from your injuries and being with your family after an injury. Injury victims should be focused on getting to their medical appointments and following their doctor’s orders. Dealing with insurance carriers and at-fault parties can be time-consuming. If a personal injury lawsuit is necessary, the process will become even more challenging and take a considerable amount of time.

2. You do not have the resources to handle the claim

Quite simply, most injury victims do not have the financial resources or legal expertise necessary to adequately handle the personal injury lawsuit process. However, an attorney will be able to use their own resources to conduct a complete investigation into your case. This can include obtaining any evidence needed to prove liability, such as photo or video surveillance, statements from eyewitnesses, documents that are hard to obtain from at-fault parties, and more.

3. Your personal injury attorney knows the value of your claim

Importantly, your attorney will be able to work with trusted economic and financial experts to calculate your total expected losses. A skilled personal injury lawyer in Florida will be able to properly calculate your total expected economic and non-economic losses. This includes your medical expenses, lost income if you cannot work, general household out-of-pocket expenses you incur, pain and suffering damages, loss of quality of life damages, and more. Your attorney will not back down if offered an unreasonable settlement from the other parties involved.

4. Attorneys understand the legal process

Your personal injury attorney in Florida will understand the entire legal process behind your claim. This includes attempting to resolve the matter through insurance carriers first, but not being afraid to file a lawsuit if necessary to obtain full compensation. If necessary, your attorney will be willing to take your case all the way to trial. A full personal injury lawsuit can be incredibly complicated, but that is what attorneys are for. They understand the discovery process, the settlement negotiations, the jury selection, and the trial.

5. An attorney can work on a contingency fee basis

Personal injury cases can become incredibly costly for victims. However, most skilled Florida personal injury lawyers will take these cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that the injury victim will not have to worry about any upfront or out-of-pocket costs related to their case. When your attorney takes your case on a contingency fee basis, you will not have to pay any legal fees until after they obtain the compensation you are entitled to.
