Posted on behalf of Henness & Haight on Dec 23, 2014 in Personal Injury News

When you are involved in an accident that leaves you injured, the stress and confusion you face are not just directly related to the injury. These issues come from a deluge of questions from doctors, insurance companies, and police. You are afraid of giving the wrong answers and not sure what to do. Having a dedicated personal injury attorney on your side is so important. Here are some specific ways that an injury lawyer in Las Vegas can do to help you.

Objective Opinions

Your attorney is not clouded by the emotions you feel after your accident. They have the ability to look at the situation objectively, as an outsider, while still keeping your interests in mind. They can see if accepting a fast settlement is best, or if you are entitled to far more than you are being offered. Experience Along with objectivity comes experience. Your lawyer will have dealt with many cases like yours. An attorney knows not only the pitfalls that come with them, but has experience dealing with other attorneys and insurance companies. They can apply this experience to get you the best settlement possible, sometimes without ever going to court. You can have no better advocate than one with a history of dealing with similar issues.

Investigators

Along with their own experience, your representative will have a team of experienced investigators that specialize in specific types of injuries and court cases. These men and women know exactly how to research the technicalities involved with your case. They can investigate legal precedent for similar cases and uncover details that others might miss.

Bureaucracy

Once the process begins, the amount of red tape to cut through can be overwhelming. The sheer technicalities, terminology, and paperwork can make anyone dizzy. It is vital to have someone in your corner who knows how to navigate these murky waters. Your advocate will ensure you come out on the other side better off for it. You already have enough to deal with, recovering from your injury. You should not have to deal with the bureaucracy as well.

Resolving Disputes

In many cases, the attorney can pursue alternative means of dispute resolution (ADR). This means you will not have to go to court. It can save you a great deal of time, money, stress, pain and heartache. The first step is to sit down with the other party and attempt to work out a mediated agreement for the injury. The majority of injury cases are resolved this way. Without an experienced legal representative, you may miss important factors. If your case does end up going to court, your personal injury attorney will aggressively defend your interests to get you all the compensation you deserve. In the end, the best reason to hire an experienced attorney is for peace of mind. You have so much to deal with from your injury already, and recovery is a long and hard process. It is vital to have someone who will stand up for you and get the compensation you deserve. If you have been in an accident and need someone to fight for your rights, give us a call today.
