Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

ELI5: Negligence

You may have myriad questions running through your mind after an accident, including whether or not you need a personal injury attorney. Your injury might not seem like a big deal at the time, but there’s a lot to consider in a potential personal injury case. For instance, will your injury keep you out of work for an extended period of time? How high are your medical bills? Your injury might not just be about the pain and the healing process, but also about the loss of income while you recuperate, the extra help you’ll need around the house, or the childcare expenses.

An attorney has experience.

Hopefully, this is your first time in the realm of personal injury, so it’s likely you’ll have no idea what to do. This is what personal injury attorneys deal with every day. With a background of experience, an attorney will know exactly what to do and where to get started. Your attorney can estimate the value of your claim, gather evidence to prove your claim exists, and help you get the most money out of a settlement.

A personal injury attorney will fight for you.

Dealing with insurance companies can be confusing, and it doesn’t help that the insurance company has its own legal experts to help them pay out the least amount of money. Often, an insurance company will take your claim more seriously just because you have a personal injury attorney. Your attorney will also know how and when to negotiate and help you through all the details of the process that you aren’t familiar with. From writing letters and building up evidence to paying off the bills at the end of your case, your personal injury attorney will fight for you while you take the time to recover.

An attorney will give you peace of mind.

A personal injury attorney can take away the stress of filing a claim while you recover from your injuries. Your case might go faster because you have an attorney working full time on it while you take the time to heal and get back to normal life. Knowing that your claim is in the hands of a professional will help you relax and take the time you need to fully recover.

If you’ve been personally injured, consider talking to a personal injury attorney. Moxie Law is dedicated to gaining just compensation for accident victims. For more information, call Moxie Law Group, an experienced personal injury firm in Utah, at 801-599-0691.
