Personal Injury Attorneys

Why hire a Personal Injury attorney?

If you've been injured in an accident that wasn't your fault, a personal injury attorney can help you receive a fair settlement from the insurance company. Although it's possible to receive some compensation without legal representation, if you don't have a personal injury attorney there's an increased chance that the insurance company will try to take advantage of you and give you less than you deserve."

Insurance law dictates the policies insurance companies can offer and the rates they can charge. In personal injury cases, it's especially imperative that you hire an attorney that's familiar with how insurance companies work because insurance companies do not always have your best interests at heart. An insurance lawyer can determine if the insurance company is treating you fairly and sue on your behalf if the insurer is using unfair or deceptive practices.

Medical Malpractice

A medical malpractice attorney will represent you if you've been injured by a healthcare provider's careless or accidental mistake. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can recognize injuries caused by mistakes and will know how to gather the necessary information to prove your case. As with other personal injury claims, your medical malpractice lawyer will try to guide your case to a settlement first or through trial if necessary.


Car Accident

If you get in a car accident, a car accident lawyer will be able to determine the right course of action. How to proceed will be determined by the situation, such as was it a defective vehicle, or was the other driver impaired or behaving negligently? Your car accident lawyer will find out who is responsible, whether insurance policies will pay for your losses, and what you can expect to recover from a lawsuit if the accident wasn't your fault.
