When is it preferable, if not highly recommended, to seek the advice of a personal injury attorney? Let’s find out a little more about this legal figure as they fight to win your case, and the instances in which you should avail of their invaluable assistance to calmly navigate the court process and make your best case.
Managing communications with insurance companies
When it is necessary, and it certainly will be, you will need to have conversations with the other party’s insurance company; normally, this is done immediately after being discharged from the emergency room. To that end, the lawyer you appoint will have to deal, first and foremost, with getting the bills for the medical expenses incurred, as well as the claim for post-accident damages, satisfied, so that you can get your car back on the road as soon as possible.
Avoiding the statute of limitations on medical malpractice cases
Do you believe you have been the victim of medical malpractice? Well, you should not waste valuable time and contact an attorney as soon as possible. Unfortunately, medical malpractice claims go rather long: on the one hand, many state statutes require you to “put the doctor on notice” within a certain period of time, and on the other hand, your attorney needs a useful amount of time to better study the case.
Insurance companies have no scruples!
Well yes, the insurance companies you will be up against are certainly stronger than you are. That’s why, if you want to run a level playing field, or at least not the weak position, you will have to surround yourself with equal professionals. Not only that, as well as very well organized, they will try to squeeze as much money as possible, and without any qualms, right from you. So, our advice is simple: report what happened, and recruit a professional. He will take care of everything.
Deploy the right medical team to your side!
Having an accident and personal injury lawyer can make a difference on the medical front as well. Thanks to his or her privileged position in the accident business, he or she will be able to suggest the best medical professionals for you, both in terms of the treatment to be followed, but also as witnesses should the case go to trial, to give his or her assessment on how the injuries may evolve and impact your future life.
Dedicated medical investigative support
In some cases, personal injury law firms offer the availability of in-house medical staff who can closely follow your case, evaluate your claim, and give you support on how to interpret medical records; in addition to this, the doctors will ensure that the care you receive corresponds to the best possible for your physical recovery. Efficient and well-organized law firms also have an investigative team that will work with you throughout the duration of the case; in particular, it is important that these experts help you reconstruct the accident, use the information at trial or in negotiations with the other party to obtain the best possible settlement or verdict.
