Why hire a personal injury lawyer? (1 of 2)

If you were injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be wondering if you should hire a personal injury lawyer. The answer to that question is most certainly yes.

Following a car accident, people assume that they will be treated fairly by the insurance companies involved, but this is almost never the case.

Insurance companies aren't on your side and they have an interest in saving themselves money, which is why they provide accident victims with low-ball settlement offers while making them think that it is the highest settlement they can get.

Hiring a personal injury lawyer means you will have someone who is well-versed in the law stand up for your rights and fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.

So what is a fair settlement after a car accident?

After being injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, you can expect to be fully compensated for the injuries and losses you suffered. Essentially, the goal of personal injury law is to make an accident victim "whole" again.

This includes compensation for past and future damages. Of course, the amount of damages you are entitled to depends on the severity of your injuries and the extent that you suffered from them, both economically and non-economically.

One area that insurance adjusters seldom provide compensation for is pain and suffering. While insurance companies attempt to ignore or diminish this aspect of the claim, your personal injury lawyer can make sure that your pain and suffering is taken seriously.

Check back later this week for more information on why hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer is vital after being injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence.
