When a person is injured in an accident, they do not always need a personal injury attorney. However, if they do need one and do not use on, they stand to be out thousands of dollars of damages they may be owed. How is an individual to know the difference?
At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we are always happy to provide a free legal consultation during which we can give you an honest assessment of your options. You can trust that we will not encourage you to take on an attorney when one is not needed because we take cases only on contingency. This means that we only get paid if you do, and our fees are a percentage of your settlement or jury award. As a result, if you have a weak case or a case without cause for a significant settlement, it is not to our benefit to take on your case. You can contact us at 800-333-0000 to get started with your free legal consultation.
You Do Need a Personal Injury Attorney if Any of the Following is True
Though every case is different, generally speaking there are some situations that will almost always make sense to involve an attorney with. This includes any serious injury in which you will need surgery, rehab, physical therapy, or other long-term medical care. In short, the more serious an injury is, the more likely you will need an attorney.
This is for two reasons. First, you will need the legal expertise of an attorney who knows how to evaluate, estimate, and fight for your long-term medical costs. Second, you will be dealing with your own injury. Do you have the time to research the law, understand the way insurance companies negotiate, and navigate the complicated legal world? Your job is to heal – let us do ours.
You May Not Need an Attorney if the Following Describes Your Case
If you are involved in a minor accident in which $500 of damage was done and you suffered a minor injury that was entirely healed after a single visit to the doctor, then you case would likely not be worth hiring an attorney for. Once you factor in case costs, court costs, attorneys’ fees, etc., you would likely be better off settling with the insurance company.
