Everyday, all across the world, people get injured due to the negligent actions of others. Though the severity of injuries might range from catastrophic to minuscule, having the contact information for a personal injury lawyer you know and trust will ensure that your rights are protected and the potential litigation process will be handled efficiently. Here are a few circumstances in which you should definitely speak to a personal injury attorney:
Pressure from Claims Adjuster.
If you were in a car accident due to no fault of your own and you are feeling pressured into accepting a settlement from a claims adjuster, you would be right to feel uneasy. Insurance companies have an obvious incentive to settle disputes quickly and as inexpensively as possible. In a situation like this, make sure to seek legal advice to ensure you receive full compensation on your claim.
Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Accident
When in a automobile accident with a driver who has either no insurance or their insurance is not enough to cover the resulting expenses, there are still legal actions that can and should be taken. Granted, an uninsured motorist might likely have no assets or ability to pay for injury or expenses, but without having a proper background check into the motorist’s credit and assets, you may never know if legal proceeding would prove to be fruitful. Always make sure to file your claim immediately with your insurance provider and then quickly follow up with an attorney if you believe the driver to be uninsured or underinsured.
Not Fully Compensated for Current and Future Medical Bills
It might be tough to assess all possible expenses and damages resulting from an accident. A lawyer is trained to consider and analyze not just your current losses, but future losses as well. Losses can be considered anything from medical bills and lost wages to disability or disfigurement. When placed in a position to determine proper compensation, make sure to consult with an attorney.
