Is It Worth Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney?

Have you been seriously injured in an accident due to the mistake, negligence, or recklessness of another person or party? You probably already know that you should file a personal injury claim in order to pursue fair compensation for your damages. Do you also know if you should hire a personal injury attorney, though? How do you know if it is worth it to retain an injury lawyer for your specific claim or case?

When You Should Have a Personal Injury Attorney

The simple explanation is it is always better to have a personal injury attorney in your corner than to not have anyone there. In Florida and every other state, there are plenty of liability laws that control how personal injury claims can pan out, from car accidents to medical malpractice. Being unfamiliar with the nuances of these laws and regulations — and the snags, gray areas, and loopholes they create — could be the pull that unravels your entire claim. Since you will not have time after a bad accident to do ample research or complete a law degree, the solution should be retaining a personal injury lawyer who already has done these things. Your attorney is there to act on your behalf and for your best interests, always.

There are some personal injury cases in which it might not be completely needed to retain an injury lawyer for the entirety of your case. You could be better off with a consultation. This may be true when minimal amounts of money are on the line. Just how much warrants an attorney is up to you, though. Ask yourself if you will be fine losing the money you spent on medical costs and bills, as well as what you did not earn due to missing work. If you think you cannot risk missing out on those damages, whatever the amount may be, then you should already be talking to a personal injury attorney for assistance.

Keep in mind that personal injury attorneys work for contingency fees. Thanks to contingency fee agreements, you can retain an injury lawyer without having to pay anything upfront, as they only receive payment if they win you a verdict or settlement amount.
