P&N Blog | 5 Reasons Why You Need A Personal Injury Attorney
When you’ve been injured, a lot of times it can be difficult to determine whether or not you need a personal injury attorney. In the moment, you could have complete trust in the insurance companies to act in your best interests. Maybe you don’t think your injuries or losses are enough to have a long term impact on you and your loved ones’ lives. Here at the Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P.C. our experienced trial attorneys are here to fight for your rights and get you the care and compensation you deserve. Here are five reasons why you need a personal injury attorney after you’ve been injured.
The Insurance Companies Are Not Working In Your Best Interests
It’s always best to remember that while insurance companies have to operate within certain laws and guidelines; at the end of the day they are a business that isn’t concerned with you as an individual more than they are concerned with their bottom line. They also have teams of attorneys in their corner managing negotiating the lowest settlement possible for a claim. It simply isn’t a fair fight if you go it alone. You deserve to have a competent trial attorney in your corner who will not only level the playing field, but also work tirelessly for your rights.
The Damages You’ve Sustained May Be More Serious Than You Think
When an injury occurs, no one has a crystal ball to see into the future of how that injury will impact your life for years to come. While you may feel fine today, issues can pop up at any time down the road, and you should receive appropriate care and compensation to treat your injuries. There are laws that protect victims of another’s negligence to receive compensation for intangible damages, such as pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. The personal injury attorneys at Parente & Norem can best assess these damages and work to get you the best relief possible.
Our Biggest Priority Is Your Recovery
The Law Offices of Parente & Norem will be there to guide you through the recovery process from the moment you seek medical attention for your injury through negotiations with the at-fault parties to get you fair compensation. If the offer isn’t favorable to our client, we take the case to trial. That’s what we mean when we say experience, dedication, and proven results.
Sometimes Liability Is Unclear
There are times when an incident with injuries occurs, and who is at fault or negligent can seem ambiguous. If liability is unclear, you will need someone willing to compile a substantial amount of evidence to prove your innocence and that the other party was negligent. In the case of a car accident, for example, police records, photos of the accident, the official accident report, medical records, and eyewitness testimony are all pieces of evidence you must collect, organize, and use to make your case. This is why having an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner is so vital when it comes to seeking justice.
Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney Saves You Time
Your life after being injured should be solely focused on recovery. It takes hours upon hours to collect things like medical records, police reports, accident/incident reports, interviewing experts, and dealing with insurance adjusters. Let the professionals handle this process so you can focus on recovering and returning to the life you had before getting injured.
As you have read, there are several reasons to hire a personal injury attorney. Between insurance negotiation, knowing how to look out for injuries, and having a deep understanding of the law, a personal injury lawyer is much better equipped to earn you your due care and compensation.
