A guide to determine
when you may need to retain an attorney.  

  1. You have suffered a Serious Injury or Permanent Disability: If you were seriously injured in an accident or acquired a serious illness, you definitely need a lawyer. There is no room for chance when a lifetime of pain, suffering, and bills are on the line. At the very least, consulting with an injury attorney is highly recommended. Furthermore, if you sustained an injury that is going to require long-term care or caused you a permanent disability, hiring a personal injury lawyer could be the only way to prevent serious, lifelong financial stress for you and your family.
  2. You are not sure who is at fault. If you were involved in an accident and it is unclear who was at fault, you should definitely consult with an attorney. In situations like this, the other party’s insurance company will definitely try to blame you for damages. Talking to an attorney can help you protect your rights and defend you from counterclaims and cross-claims.
  3. There Are Multiple Parties Involved: If you were injured in an accident that involved multiple parties, consulting with a personal injury lawyer will give you the best chance at not being stuck with the bill. Attorneys have the experience necessary to deal with multiple insurance companies at once and to help build a case that protects their client. In the case of multiple parties being at fault for your injury, a lawyer will also have the skills necessary to ensure that you get all the compensation you deserve without leaving money on the table.
  4. The Insurance Company Denied or is Delaying Your Claim: Insurance companies know that most people do not understand all the complicated laws and procedures that take place in a personal injury claim. Because of this, they will often use their advantage to flat out deny a person’s legitimate injury claim because they know you can do nothing about it.  Likewise, insurance companies also delay claims in order to slowly beat the injured party into submission. They know that money is tight and the bills are rolling in, so they will often use this position to offer a fraction of the amount your claim is worth. If either of these situations happen, you most definitely should consult with a personal injury attorney.
