Do I Need an Attorney for My Personal Injury Case? 
If you’ve been injured and you believe your injury was the result of someone else’s negligence, then you may be weighing your options regarding whether to hire an attorney to help you with your case. The decision to hire an attorney is a personal one, but there are some important reasons you should consider hiring an attorney.

Experience Handling Claims

Whether it’s a car accident or a slip and fall, there’s a good chance this may be your first time handling a claim. You may not have experience dealing with insurance adjusters and others involved in a personal injury claim. An experienced attorney can help you through the process. Insurance adjusters are in the business of denying claims if they can. An attorney who has worked with insurance adjusters before will understand what they need to see and how to pursue maximum compensation for your claim. In addition, insurance companies have attorneys working for them. Having an attorney on your side can level the playing field.

Knowing the Value of Your Case

If you decide to handle a claim on your own, you may be offered a settlement by the insurance company. But how do you know if that settlement is adequate? An experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate your case and help you pursue full compensation. An attorney will be able to look at your medical records, whether you'll need future medical care, your lost wages, your pain and suffering, and other damages and make a determination about what your case may realistically be worth. Chances are the attorney will have experience handling cases similar to yours and will know what type of outcome to expect. This experience can prove to be invaluable.

Managing Your Stress

If you decide to handle a claim on your own, you will be responsible for gathering evidence, filling out paperwork, and putting together your case so an insurance adjuster will offer you a fair settlement. The process can be very stressful and involve some legwork. This can be especially difficult if you have been seriously injured. You could also inadvertently lose yourself a significant recovery for your losses by not understanding the legal ramifications and requirements of certain types of settlements. Resolving injury claims even pre-suit is a difficult and complex task with many potential pitfalls. If you hire an attorney to handle your case, you can let them do all the work, and you can take the time to recover from your injury. There is no reason to add stress to your life when you've been injured.

No Upfront Fees

You may think that hiring an attorney will be expensive. However, when you hire an experienced personal injury attorney, like the attorneys at Tison Law Group, you pay nothing upfront. In fact, you don't pay anything unless we get you a recovery via settlement or verdict. Even then, the fee will be based on a percentage of your recovery. This therefore gives your attorney even more incentive to win and try to maximize your recovery.

Trial Experience

In the event that you are unable to settle your case pre-suit, are you prepared to take your case to court? Having an attorney with experience taking cases to court will be important if your case does not settle pre-suit. It’s also imperative to even maximize pre-suit recoveries that the insurance companies know you are willing and able to go to trial if necessary. You will be at a distinct disadvantage if you decide to bring a case to trial on your own.

Tison's Tip
Being injured in an accident of any sort is stressful enough. An insurance company’s duty to its shareholders is to maximize profit. They maximize profit by paying you as little as possible on your claim. Trying to navigate the claim process alone subjects you to be taking advantage of and unnecessary worry. Save yourself a lot of additional and unnecessary stress by calling an experienced lawyer now to advise and assist you through the process. You will be glad you did!
