If you have been injured in an accident of any kind caused by someone else, you need a personal injury lawyer to help navigate the myriad of obstacles for you to receive fair compensation from the insurance carrier. This is especially true if you have permanent or temporary injuries, lose time from work, incur medical bills, have life interruption, experience delays in hearing from the insurance company, or receive settlement offers early (which are usually bad for you and good for the insurance company).
An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you avoid pitfalls, such as dealing with hospital or insurance liens associated with your medical care. Typically, your lawyer has the knowledge and experience to compromise these liens in order to increase your recovery. If you have been injured by someone else’s negligence, your case needs documentation, evidence preserved, and a knowledgeable lawyer to protect your rights, minimize your headaches and maximum your recovery.
