It Pays to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

Posted on

Some statistics indicate that people who hire a personal injury lawyer for their case receive an average settlement amount around 1/3 more than those who directly settle with an insurance company. Although every situation is different, a good personal injury attorney is a trained negotiator who can also help protect your interests down the road should you have unforeseen physical complications resulting from your injury. By accepting an initial offer from the defendant’s insurer means you waive future claims.

It makes sense to have a personal injury attorney looking out for you. Even after the legal fees, you still likely will walk away with at least as much if not more than you would have had you decided to settle your claim on your own.

Some victims may be reluctant of giving up a portion of their settlement to their lawyer. However, there are a lot of reasons why it benefits to hire a personal injury attorney. Make sure you find an attorney who is highly experienced in personal injury law whether it is an accident case, medical malpractice or even a dog bite.
