Getting started with claims
If you have recently been injured and want to file a claim, you can choose between two options before you start. You must decide whether to represent yourself or hire a professional. Since litigation involving injury claims can be complex, your best bet is to hire a licensed attorney to handle your case on your behalf. Read on to learn about the two ways to pursue a personal injury claim and some important suggestions for what to do next.
Option 1: Abandoning a lawyer
Whether you are dealing with an opposition insurance company or dealing with an insatiable individual, the first step is to determine if you need professional legal advice. You can make your own claim and represent yourself, or you can hire a licensed accident lawyer. For people injured in an accident, it is highly recommended to hire a personal injury lawyer, but this is optional.
If you choose to represent yourself, be sure to study the insurance company's claims process process and fully understand its agreements and procedures before filing a claim and asking them to state their rights process in writing. Ask a lot of questions and ask for answers in a language that you can understand clearly, rather than confusing legal terms, and the requests and answers should be in writing.
In addition, the insurance adjuster is always polite and patient. Their work takes some time, and they have little control over the settlement offer; they can only make informed recommendations to the governing board. Remember that the settlement amount should include all the fees you pay, the loss of your salary, and the pain and suffering. If you are still unable to reach a suitable settlement amount, it is best to choose your other option, which is to hire a licensed personal injury lawyer.
Option 2: Hiring a personal injury lawyer [recommended]
Study a local law firm and find a professional accident lawyer that feels right for you and your legal needs. Ask your friends and relatives for recommended information and view the catalog and suggestions online. Most personal injury law firms [including our own law firms] provide free initial consultation to assess your claim and determine the strength of your claim. It's good for you to use these free consultations, just as they are interviews and eventually compare law firms. Compare costs, experience, etc. in order to make an informed decision.
Most unfair claims are settled out of court, as both parties can usually reach a fair solution. However, if a settlement agreement cannot be reached, your personal injury lawyer will bring it to court and submit your case to the judge and jury. The judge and the jury will decide what the fair compensation amount should be. Please note that sometimes, although rare, the court or jury will decide a lower settlement than the one originally provided outside the court. Similarly, it is highly recommended to hire a licensed and experienced lawyer who specializes in personal injury. The defendant’s insurance company has a lawyer, and you should.
