Time to Hire the Best Personal Injury Attorney Orem Has?

ELI5: Negligence

If you’ve sustained injury, you may be wondering whether or not you’d benefit from hiring a personal injury lawyer. While there’s no set-in-stone guidelines for when the injured party should hire a personal injury attorney, there are signs that a person may have a good personal injury case. 

  1. You Have Sustained Injuries

In order to have a strong personal injury claim, you need to have sustained injury. Generally speaking, personal injury lawyers help accident victims get compensation for their accident related injuries. This usually means injured clients can get financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and more. When a negligent party causes an accident that injures someone else, it’s not fair that the injured person has to pay for the medical expenses that were accrued due to someone else’s negligence. That’s where personal injury lawyers come in. Personal injury lawyers use their extensive knowledge of personal injury law to win fair and full compensation for the injured client. If you have medical bills due to an accident that someone else caused, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Reach out to one of our Orem personal injury lawyers to find out more at your free consultation. 

  1. You Have Damages

When it comes to personal injury claims, damages generally refer to either economic damages, or non-economic damages. Economic damages refer to damages with an objective monetary value. For example, if you sustained injuries in a car accident, your medical bills resulting from the car accident would be a good example of an economic damage. A person may have more economic damages than just medical bills, however. Many people who have been injured in car accidents are unable to immediately return to work due to their injuries. Therefore, they may be entitled to monetary compensation for lost wages as well as the cost of their medical treatment. Usually, accidents–no matter what kind–cause some form of non-economic damages as well. Non-economic damages are damages that do not have an objective monetary value. For instance, many injured persons experience emotional distress, and pain and suffering as a result of their accident related injuries. If you’ve got damages due to the negligent acts of another person, you may benefit from contacting a personal injury attorney and attending a free consultation. 

  1. You Weren’t Considered to Be the At-Fault Party

If you’re considering filing a personal injury claim, it’s important that you are not at-fault for the accident. In some states, you may still be able to get compensation even if you have some fault. Even if the insurance company has already said that you’re at fault for the accident, it may still be a good idea to attend a free consultation with a personal injury attorney. While insurance companies are generally in charge of deciding who’s at fault for the accident, they don’t always get this right. In some cases, a personal injury lawyer may be able to help you prove that you were not at fault for the injuries you’ve sustained. So, even if you are considered to be the at fault party, you may still have a personal injury claim. It’s likely in your best interest to meet with an Orem personal injury lawyer before you decide to accept the insurance company’s findings. 

Still Not Sure? 

If you’re still not feeling confident about whether or not you’ve got a strong personal injury claim, don’t panic! Our Orem personal injury attorneys are here to help. At Moxie Law Group, our law firm is dedicated to helping everyone get the compensation they need to recover without having to take a financial risk in order to explore their legal options. If you’ve sustained injury, there are six good reasons you should meet with an Orem personal injury lawyer. 

  1. Is that Settlement Really Fair Compensation?

Negligent drivers are everywhere these days; suppose one of them causes a pedestrian accident. The pedestrian has severe spinal injuries, and head injuries. They’ve got a settlement offer from the insurance adjuster and they like it. Should they accept without speaking to a personal injury lawyer? Absolutely not! Even if they think the settlement is fair, they should always seek legal advice from a qualified personal injury lawyer. Although a settlement may sound good, an Orem personal injury lawyer will be able to tell whether or not it’s actually fair. Our Orem personal injury attorneys have extensive experience helping clients win fair compensation for their injuries. This means that our attorneys are able to tell clients whether or not a settlement offer actually compensates them adequately. 

  1. Insurance Companies Can Only Offer so Much

Most insurance companies can only offer the injured party so much. In fact, insurance companies usually use a software to calculate how much they should compensate a person for their injuries. Since insurance companies are in it to make money, they generally start on the low end then work their way up to the higher amounts. In many cases, the insurance adjuster isn’t able to offer enough compensation for the injury the party sustained. In these cases, personal injury lawsuit may be filed. Most personal injury claims don’t go to court. But if you do need to file a personal injury lawsuit to get the compensation you deserve, it’s in your best interest to have a dedicated and experienced legal team who can advocate for you. 

  1. Insurance Companies Have Professionals

The insurance company’s best interests may not align with yours. In fact, they may conflict quite a bit. Insurance companies are in it to make money. Insurance companies make more money if they deny claims, or settle them for lower amounts. These companies will, for the most part, look for any excuse to offer extremely low sums, or flat out deny coverage. Insurance companies have employees who know local laws and ordinances extremely well. Many of these employees also know the terms and conditions of their policies and are extremely skilled at using these against those who have been injured. If you’ve sustained injury, and you’re not getting anywhere with the insurance provider, it may be time to look into hiring an experienced legal team to help you with your personal injury case. 

  1. You Have Nothing to Lose

A lot of people think that it’s too expensive to file a personal injury case. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, at Moxie Law Group, you can file a personal injury case without paying anything out of pocket. Our legal team will work with you on a contingency fee basis. This means that you don’t have to pay anything until you receive your settlement, or a judgment in your favor. Once you receive compensation, a pre-negotiated portion of your settlement or judgment will cover all your legal fees. This way, everyone can afford to hire a skilled UT personal injury attorney. Our law firm also gives those who have sustained injury a free consultation. This way, injured persons can decide whether or not to hire legal representation without having to take a financial risk. 

  1. Handling Your Own Claim Is Stressful

If you’ve been in an accident, and you’ve had the misfortune of negotiating maximum compensation with an insurance adjuster, you know just what a pain in the back it is to handle your own claim. These insurance companies sure don’t make it easy. After all, why would they? If they handed out fair settlements to everyone, or negotiated fairly, they’d make a lot less money. At Moxie Law Group, our law firm handles the claim for you. This means that we negotiate a settlement with the insurance provider, or entity representing the negligent party while you recover from your injuries. If we can’t come to an agreement, our law firm is not afraid to take a case to trial. In fact, our law firm is made up of skilled litigators who can fight for your rights.
