      Can't I just represent myself?
      When it comes to insurance litigation related to personal injury, the legal process can be complex and overwhelming, especially for someone who is not well-versed in the law. That’s where a personal injury lawyer comes in. They have extensive knowledge and experience in handling cases similar to yours and can provide you with invaluable assistance.

      A personal injury lawyer can help you gather evidence, negotiate with insurance adjusters, and file a lawsuit if necessary. They can also advise you on your legal rights and options, and help you understand the potential outcomes of your case. Additionally, they can handle all the legal paperwork and deadlines, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

      Will my lawyer loan me money for my bills?

      When you’re unable to work because of your personal injury, you may be faced with difficult decisions related to how you will pay for groceries, mortgages, utility bills, and/or other household bills. Your personal injury lawyer can seek compensation for you for wages lost as a result of the limitations imposed by treatment and recovery periods needed as a result of your injury. Usually, those efforts take the form of a claim for lost wages.

      Should you document the accident?

      One of the initial things that a person should do after he or she is injured is record everything that he or she can about his or her accident and its impact on his/her daily life. It could be tempting to rely on memory but actual written notes usually prove very critical to receiving financial compensation for losses suffered as a result of an injury. See our Checklist to ensure you don’t leave out any important information when documenting your personal injury. You may need to keep a record of documents such as Police Reports, Medical Bills, Pictures and Video from the Crash, and a Journal of the Crash

      Should I take the insurance settlement?

      No matter how much pressure you may feel from the adjuster, do not accept a settlement from your insurance company before you speak with a personal injury lawyer. Keep in mind that the insurance adjuster’s job is to protect the bottom line of the insurance company. Even though they were assigned to your case, their main reason for employment is to reduce costs for the insurance company. Speak with a lawyer about your options first – there are no risks or fees when you meet with a lawyer for a free consultation.

      What is a personal injury lawyer?

      A personal injury lawyer advocates for injury/accident victims to recover compensation from parties whose actions or negligence contributed to the cause of the injuries.

      A personal injury lawyer’s services usually include:

      • Communicating – on the client’s behalf – with insurance companies, medical billing, law enforcement, court systems, and other involved parties
      • Gathering documentation to calculate financial damages, and pain and suffering
      • Explaining the personal injury case process, including deadlines, and the range of possible outcomes of the case
      • Negotiating with insurance companies, medical care billers, and other sources of costs or compensation
      • Representing the client in formal legal proceedings, including mediation and, when needed, trying the client’s case in court

      Working on a contingency fee basis, meaning, clients only pay legal fees if the lawyer wins them compensation for the injury.

      Read more about how personal injury attorneys establish fault and prove negligence in a personal injury case.

      How do I decide on a personal injury lawyer?

      Most people search online for a lawyer. Reading client reviews on Google, Facebook, Avvo or Yelp is a good way to get a feel for a particular lawyer. Others ask friends to find recommendations for a personal injury lawyer. As a rule of thumb, look for personal injury lawyers who have no up-front payment, can respond to phone calls and emails quickly, have a competitive contingency fee rate, and have a vast understanding of how to get maximum fair compensation in your case.
