Personal Injury Claims: When You Need a Lawyer
For certain personal injury claims -- such as those for severe
injuries, malpractice, or toxic exposure -- you'll want to consult a lawyer.
Sometimes, the skills of an experienced personal injury lawyer -- or at least
the threat to an insurance company that such a lawyer may present -- are worth
the money you must pay that lawyer to represent you. You may need a lawyer
because of complex legal rules involved in your particular claim, or because
the severity of your injuries might cause your compensation to vary greatly
from the norm -- or simply because an insurance company refuses to settle a
matter in good faith. The following types of injuries and accidents almost
certainly require a lawyer's help.
Long-Term or Permanently Disabling Injuries
Some accidents result in injuries that significantly affect your physical
capabilities or appearance for a long time -- over a year -- or even
permanently. Figuring out how much such a serious injury is worth can be a
difficult business. You'll probably require some assistance from an experienced
lawyer to get the most out of your claim.
The amount of your accident compensation is mostly determined by how severe
your injuries were. And the severity of your injuries is measured by the amount
of your medical bills, the type of injuries you have, and the length of time it
takes for you to recover. As the amount of your potential compensation
increases, the range within which that compensation may fall becomes wider. In
such cases, it may be worth the expense to have a lawyer handle your claim and
make sure you receive compensation at the highest end of the range.
If you have suffered an injury or illness due to careless, unprofessional, or
incompetent treatment at the hands of a doctor, nurse, hospital, clinic,
laboratory, or other medical provider, both the medical questions and the legal
rules involved are complex. They almost certainly require that you hire a
lawyer experienced in medical malpractice cases.
In the increasingly chemical world, we sometimes become ill because of exposure
to contaminants in the air, soil, or water, in products, or in food. Claims
based on such exposure are difficult to prove, however, and often require
complex scientific data. And because the chemical and other industries have
erected a huge wall to protect themselves from legal exposure while they
continue to expose us to potentially harmful chemicals, the required evidence
is very hard to come by. Get expert help.
When an Insurance Company Refuses to Pay
In some instances, regardless of the nature of your injury or the amount of
your medical bills and lost income, you will want to hire a lawyer because an
insurance company or government agency simply refuses to make any fair settlement
offer at all. In these cases, something -- what the lawyer can get minus the
fee charged to get it -- is better than nothing. YOU PAY NOTHING UNLESS WE
