Why is it Crucial to Hire a Quality Personal Injury Lawyer as Soon as Possible During This Process?
- Good injury attorneys are trained to gather admissible evidence and analyze legal liability issues. They have years of education and experience to rely upon in deciding not only if anyone is legally responsible but, how easy or tough it will be to prove in court.
- Quality accident lawyers are adept at gathering ALL the necessary information and documentation to support the claim for full and complete damages both present and future and presenting the claim only when it is “ripe” and all expenses can be fully ascertained. They also know the lay of the land when it comes to valuing pain and suffering based upon real, objective information like jury verdict histories.
- Investigation into who is responsible and what type of insurance that person or business has is the job of a good attorney. Insurance companies do NOT share information willingly about their policy, its limits or its scope of coverage nor will they conduct an asset check to determine what could be collected above insurance. It is only through the demands of the legal process that such information can be obtained.
Unless and until you hire an attorney to help you with the claims process, you will never know the answer to these three crucial questions! Therefore, you will never know if you are settling “on the cheap” or selling yourself short or if the risks of moving forward to litigation or a trial outweigh the costs of settling for less. Once a settlement has been reached and a release signed, this is the END of the legal claim and you can never go back. Get the three questions answered before it’s too late!!
