Don't Be In The Dark About Our Legal System

Hello, I'm Karla Mitchell. Going through a legal case can be very expensive and challenging. I won't go into details, but I recently underwent my own legal battle that lasted several years. It is finally over and I successfully received a settlement, but I had to spend so much time studying law in order to play my role in my own court case. While I found a great attorney at one point, I felt completely lost initially and I don't want anyone else to experience the same thing. So I decided to create this blog for those who would like to know more about law.

3 Vital Reasons Why You Need A Personal Injury Attorney On Your Side

by Andrew Martin

Have you been injured in an accident that was caused by somebody else? Are you having a difficult time convincing your insurance that they should compensate you for your injury? Insurance, like any other company, is out to make a profit. If they were to pay out on fraudulent claims, they wouldn't be able to make any money at all.

Unfortunately, denying fraudulent claims sometimes means that they also deny valid claims like yours. When this happens, one of the best things you can do is to hire a lawyer to assist you. Many people are initially skeptical about hiring an attorney, but there are a number of reasons why you should seriously consider taking this course of action. Some of the best reasons why you should do this include:

1. Eliminate red tape: In order to deter fraudulent claims, some insurance companies make it as difficult and as confusing as possible to actually file a claim. Your claim may get denied because you filed paperwork in the wrong order or because you didn't include something that the insurance company says you should have "known" to include. Fortunately, because they deal with insurance companies on a daily basis, a personal injury attorney will know exactly what needs to be filed with the insurance company and when to file it so that your claims are more likely to get approved quickly.

2. Faster settlement: Eliminating red tape is just one way that your personal injury attorney will be able to help you get your money more quickly. Having an attorney will let the insurance company know that you're serious about your lawsuit and that a third party - your attorney - thinks that you have a good case. Both of these things can push an insurance company to a faster resolution since a settlement tends to be less expensive for the insurance company than a protracted court case.

3. Stop creditors: When you're dealing with bill collectors calling you on a daily basis, sometimes multiple bill collectors on a single day, it can be difficult to focus on getting better and getting back to work. Of course, when you're unable to work, you can't exactly pay the debts that you owe. But since there are people who, in order to try to get out of paying their debts, claim that they're unable to work even though they are currently working, bill collectors are unlikely to take your word on the matter.

On the other hand, if you put them in contact with your personal injury attorney who lets them know that you're currently seeking restitution, the bill collectors are likely to back off for a while until you're able to get the money that you deserve.
