Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer to Make a Claim?
You are not obliged to hire an attorney to make a personal injury claim. But claims are not as straightforward as they might seem.
People often deny responsibility for accidents or injuries they are liable for. Insurance companies commonly try to pay as little as possible for claims.
There is always lots of documentation needed to prove claims. The last thing you’re likely to want to do if you have injuries is to run around gathering paperwork. Your personal injury attorney will get everything needed for your claim. This includes police reports, medical records and invoices, and any witness statements that are available.
Even more important, your attorney will handle all the negotiations with insurers and those who are responsible for the accident. Personal injury lawyers fight for their clients’ rights. It’s our responsibility to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
