5 Reasons Why Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney Will Benefit Your Case

Getting injured in an accident is frustrating, to say the least. Depending on your injuries, you may have a complete lifestyle change, along with an endless sea of bills following your accident. If the accident was a result of another’s negligence, then you are entitled to seek compensation from the guilty party.

However, seeking this compensation is often not as straightforward as it should be. There are many things that must be proven, along with documents to file, strict deadlines, and dealing with the opposing party’s insurance company. These requirements typically make pursuing compensation on your own, without the legal guidance of an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney impossible. There are many reasons to hire a personal injury attorney.

We’ve put together a list of the 10 most essential reasons to hire an attorney for your personal injury case:

1. Experience

The thing that we cannot stress enough to our clients is that experience is the single most valuable trait an injury attorney can have. When an attorney has experience with the type of case you’re dealing with, it means they have fought this battle before. They know how to prepare, they know what information to provide, they know what language to use with the at-fault party’s insurance company, and most of all, they have proven success with your type of case.

Not only will they know how to handle your specific case to ensure proper compensation, but they will also be able to guide you through the whole process. This is a godsend for those injured, as they already have enough on their plate. Being able to sit back and follow the guidance of your experienced attorney will allow you to truly focus on healing. A good attorney will do the heavy lifting for you.

2. Objectivity

Following your accident, you are likely to be cloudy-minded. This may cause you to act on emotion, instead of being logical. An attorney has no personal investment in the case, as they weren’t there. This means they will act with objectivity to ensure the best possible outcome for your case.

3. They Know How to Get Through the Red Tape

Accidents happen when we least expect them to, and this likely means you are completely unsure of personal injury law. Rightfully so, as this isn’t something that is ever expected of you to understand. However, insurance companies require a vast amount of information, paperwork, evidence, and additional red tape that you must get through to have a chance at seeking compensation. Working with an experienced personal injury attorney will ensure you have the right tools to break past the red tape and get you a settlement that allows you to properly recover.

4. They Will Ensure a Speedy Settlement

If you were to choose to take on your personal injury case alone, it will likely (and hopefully) be the first time you have gone through this process. As stated earlier, there is a lot of red tape to get through, and it will be extremely time-consuming work for someone who is unfamiliar with the process. Things like getting medical records, police reports, and communicating with insurance companies take a lot of time—time which many people can’t afford to give up due to other obligations. This is exactly why you reach out for the legal guidance of an attorney. Many firms offer free consultations, so they can better understand your situation allowing them to put together a plan for you to recover.

5. A Team of Investigators

Any personal injury attorney who is serious about helping their clients receive the best possible outcome knows that this can’t truly be achieved without the help of a team of investigators. This team will look into the details of your case in great detail, this typically includes:

  • Interviewing witnesses

  • Re-enacting the accident

  • Obtaining police reports

  • Checking for faults in the defendant’s story

The guilty party’s insurance company has them, so why shouldn’t you? By not working with an attorney and their team of investigators, you run the risk of being offered a settlement offer that is much less than you deserve.
