7 Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury LawyerLast updated on: September 6, 2022
Many important advantages are gained by hiring a personal injury lawyer. You’ll have someone to help you navigate the often-complicated legal system, make sure you know your legal options, and present your case in the best possible light.
In addition, hiring a lawyer with a contingency fee system offers excellent legal representation without risking an expensive and futile case. If you don’t receive a positive outcome, you will pay nothing.
1. Experience Assessing Claims
The law depends on human behavior, making it impossible to give an absolute guarantee of an outcome. However, an experienced personal injury attorney knows the laws and procedures in your state and will be able to provide you with an idea of your chances for compensation.
Some circumstances and injuries are unlikely to prevail in court or are unlikely to receive sufficient damages to justify the time and expense of a lawsuit. You must have a realistic perception of your legal situation before investing your time, money, and energy in what can be a long and possibly taxing process. Zinda Law Group lawyers can help you decide whether or not pursuing your personal injury claim is worth it to you.
2. Familiarity with the Legal System
Most people do not have much prior experience with the legal system when they pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Even if you have experienced the court system in other situations, every type of legal proceeding is different, and personal injury law is no exception.
An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the often-complicated legal system and the legal maneuvers of the opposing party. The individual or entity you are seeking compensation from is likely to have their own legal counsel who is also familiar with the process. Without your own attorney, you could find yourself in a difficult position, navigating a system that your opposing party has much more knowledge of.
3. Comfortable Communicating with Insurance
Insurance investigators have their own methods and protocol, which generally come down to paying as little as possible to claimants. They want to retain as much profit as they can for their business.
It can be challenging to communicate with insurance companies. An insurance adjuster may try to get you to admit fault in an accident or find a way to deny you compensation for your damages. A personal injury attorney will know how to communicate with insurance investigators, protecting your claim and presenting your situation in the most best light possible.
4. Tools to Investigate Your Claim
Personal injury lawyers have investigative techniques that could be crucial to the success of your case. They will know what to look for when investigating your case.
They may have technology to assist them in finding evidence you are not aware of. Your lawyer will also be able to go through any paperwork related to your case.
5. Trial Strategy
Not all personal injury claims result in a settlement. Some may go to trial or arbitration. Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your case is extremely important if your claim goes to trial.
A good personal injury lawyer will know how to make the most compelling argument in your favor. In addition, a trial likely involves witnesses, evidence, and the intricacies of the courthouse and jurisdiction in which your case is being tried. These matters are complicated to navigate without an experienced lawyer by your side.
6. Awareness of How to Seek Maximum Compensation
An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to identify all areas in which you can seek compensation for your injury. These might include:
- Lost wages if you were prevented from being able to work.
- Medical bills if you incurred healthcare expenses as a result of your injury.
- Property damage, if your property requires replacement or repair.
- Punitive damages, not just to compensate a specific cost incurred but to burden the at-fault party as punishment.
- Emotional distress, compensating you for mental distress and other non-physical suffering resulting from your accident.
Punitive damages and emotional distress are more difficult to receive in court. The harm done to the injured party must be serious enough to be worthy not just of reimbursement but of further punishment on top of reimbursement.
Emotional distress damages are more difficult to achieve than property or medical damages because emotional distress is far more difficult to quantify. Experienced attorneys, however, can effectively pursue all appropriate damages, including emotional distress or punitive damages. We present claims in the most comprehensible way and make compelling arguments in our clients’ favor.
