Home » Blog » Reasons Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

When we hear the term “Personal Injury,” many of us think of automobile accidents or motorcycle accidents. While this is true, there are many other causes of personal injury in Florida. Unfortunately, dangerous accidents can happen to us at any time. We care deeply about our community and what happens in it, including you and your loved ones. We know firsthand how difficult Personal Injury can be.

We want to share with you a few reasons why you may need to hire a Personal Injury attorney.

First, if you are suffering from a long-term or disabling injury as a result of your involvement in an accident, it may be time to speak to an experienced Personal Injury attorney. He or she can help evaluate how your injuries may affect your ability to earn money over time and can help you receive compensation for those injuries.

The amount of compensation you may receive largely depends on the severity of your injuries. Typically, insurance companies evaluate the severity of your injuries by the total amount of your medical bills and the estimated length of your recovery time. Unfortunately, if your amount of potential compensation continues to increase based on these factors, you are likely to reach the limits of the at-fault party’s insurance policy. This means that you may not receive adequate compensation for your injuries. Discussing your case with a Personal Injury attorney in a free case evaluation can help you understand what type of compensation you may receive and what to expect in your case.

If you are involved in an accident with multiple parties, it can be difficult to navigate the insurance claims process. If several of the parties sustain injuries, you may be the subject of an insurance claim. This can lead to your compensation being reduced due to your fault in the accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not always provide you with the compensation you deserve. Sometimes, insurance companies may refuse to settle with you or may not provide you with a fair settlement offer. Involving a Personal Injury attorney in the claims process can help ensure your insurance company is not engaging in bad faith practices and can help you get the compensation you may be entitled to.

Above all, it is important to hire a local, experienced Personal Injury attorney to take care of your  case.

He or she will understand the laws that govern accident claims and know the actions that need to be taken to help secure the recognition and relief you deserve. If you were involved in an accident that caused an injury to you or another party, do not wait to seek help.
