If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, there are many reasons that hiring a personal injury attorney can prove to be very beneficial for you. Some situations are complicated because of complex legal rules regarding your claim. Others might be due to the severity of your injury and you may want to negotiate for higher compensation.

The following scenarios are times when you should have an experienced personal injury attorney by your side:

  • Medical Malpractice: If you have an illness or injury due to the negligence or incompetence of a medical professional, the complexities and legalities of such situations may require an attorney’s skills.
  • Long-Term or Severe Injuries: You may have been injured in an accident that will affect you for longer than 12 months or even permanently incapacitate you. Determining the level of compensation you need to recover from an injury is complicated. An experienced attorney can pursue maximum compensation for your injury claim.
  • Insurance Company Disputes: Insurance companies might refuse to provide you with adequate financial support for your injury and the medical expense and lost wages that follow as a result. Hiring a personal injury attorney will enable you to negotiate a settlement to receive fair compensation.
  • Toxic Exposure: If you are injured because of contaminants in water, soil, air or food, it may be difficult to prove the illness you experience as a result of exposure to toxins. However, an experienced personal injury attorney will have the legal knowledge and resources to identify and provide evidence that supports your claim.
