Whether you need an attorney to assist you with your injury claim really depends on the seriousness of the injury.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury you should seek the assistance of an attorney with personal injury experience.
An attorney has the ability ensure you do not make vital mistakes. In addition, we can evaluate the value of your case and locate assets or other insurance policies that will pay your damages. Furthermore and just as important, is our ability to compromise medical bill/liens and increase your net recovery.
If you suffer a mild injury, whether a muscle strain or whiplash, and you recover from said injury in a few weeks, and have incurred less than $5,000.00 in medical expenses, you may well be able to handle the claim yourself. However, I would suggest having your case evaluated for free to get an idea of a reasonable settlement range.
After meeting with clients, if I do not believe I can increase their Net Recovery, I tell them so, and give them advice on how they should resolve the case.
Under the law an injured person is entitled to be compensated for when someone else’s negligent or intentional act caused the person harm.
