Accidents often happen incredibly fast and unexpectedly. While car accidents are a leading cause of injuries, accidents can happen in all sorts of circumstances. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2018, emergency medical personnel treated approximately 24.5 million people for unintentional injuries. Many of these accidents were someone else’s fault. After an accident caused by someone else, you may be in shock, in pain, and may not know who to turn to for help. You may even be wondering, “Do I need a personal injury lawyer?”
Let’s look at some of the main reasons you may need the help of one of our experienced personal injury lawyers.
You Suffered a Serious Injury
The insurance company may call your accident minor, but that could be far from the truth. The extent of your injuries is an important factor in determining the amount of compensation you are eligible to claim. Our experienced personal injury lawyers will review your injuries and medical bills with compassion, making sure the insurance company knows just how much you deserve to recover. After all, we’re known as the Thumbs Up Guys because we’ve always got your back.
You Need Help Proving the Accident Wasn’t Your Fault
There are two key issues in every personal injury case — liability and damages. In other words, who is at fault and how much compensation you should receive. Proving fault in order to justify the compensation you deserve can feel challenging, even if you know that your accident was caused by the recklessness of another. There may even be more than one party involved in your accident. Our attorneys can investigate your circumstances to determine who to seek compensation from. We know how to deal with multiple insurance companies and can protect your rights against anyone seeking to undervalue your losses.
If You Have to Deal With the Insurance Company
It is important to remember that the insurance company’s main goal is to avoid or minimize paying claims. They may try to take advantage of your circumstances and make a lowball settlement offer that won’t cover all of your accident-related expenses. Most people lack the experience to fight for the compensation they deserve, and insurance companies take advantage of those situations. That’s why you need the Thumbs Up Guys in your corner. We’ll fight for every penny you’re entitled to.
If You Are Facing Devastating Financial Consequences
Even with insurance, your injuries may leave you with massive medical bills that you are unable to pay for on your own. Perhaps you are unable to work, you don’t have a car, and the bills just keep piling up. Our attorneys can help you seek the money you need to financially recover from your accident.
If You Are Not Prepared to Handle Your Personal Injury Claim Alone
Even if an accident seems minor at first, seeking compensation can quickly become complex and time-consuming. There is a complex web of issues, laws, and rules involved in every personal injury matter. If you are not sure whether you need the help of a personal injury lawyer, consider questions such as:
- Do I know the deadlines that apply to my case?
- Do I know what laws apply to my circumstances?
- Do I know how to prove who was at fault?
- Do I know how to gather and protect the necessary evidence?
- Am I financially prepared to cover all my expenses if I cannot secure the settlement I need?
- Do I know how to calculate my losses, including bills, lost earning potential, and pain and suffering?
