If you have recently suffered an injury due to the actions of a third party, then you have may a valid personal injury case for which you can file a claim and receive compensation. Representing yourself during this process is technically possible, but rarely results in a successful outcome.
Take a look below for more information on the advantages of setting up an initial consultation with a personal injury lawyer.
Trying to represent yourself is a seemingly endless series of hassles that virtually nobody is qualified or prepared to take on. That said, many people who have been injured still hesitate to retain the services of an attorney because they believe it will be just as inconvenient, and they aren't sure where to start. Luckily, connecting with a personal injury lawyer couldn't be easier. Simply contact a personal injury law office in your area by phone or email. You may speak with an attorney directly or work with a paralegal first. Either way, there are no huge hurdles to legal representation.
You may know the facts of your case, but there is no way to put these into a broader legal context without the assistance of an experienced attorney. An attorney will be able to assess your case objectively, discuss the cases of former clients they have successfully represented, and outline a basic plan of action so that you know what to expect going forward. The analysis they provide is invaluable especially because it serves as the foundation of a plan to prove your claim.
Another reason people are reluctant to contact an attorney after an injury is because they believe the process will be cost prohibitive. Yet attorneys are almost always willing to set up an free initial consultation once they have a basic idea of what your injury involved. Plus, many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning that you don't have to pay any money up front beyond basic document processing fees. Best of all, you won't have to pay at all if your attorney is not able to reach a settlement (or win your case if it goes to trial). This is ideal for both the attorney and the client, as it gives both parties sufficient incentive to work together.
If you are injured and currently recovering, don't wait to contact a personal injury lawyer who can help you get your life back on track.
