Personal injury lawyers can helpful when the accident has caused severe injuries or the case is complex. Every case will have its unique circumstances that will decide if the victim needs to hire a personal injury lawyer or not, especially if the case relates to any of the following situation.
Dispute by the Other Party
If an insurance company is not willing to settle an injury claim due to a dispute filed by the other party, then one should seek legal advice. The lawyer’s job will be to prove that the other party is at fault in order to make the insurance company settle the claim.
Severe injuries caused by an accident can include impairment of bodily function, disfigurement or paralysis. If the victim feels the need of additional compensation from the party at fault then taking a legal step might be the only solution.
Additional Medical and Lifestyle Expense
In some cases, even though an insurance company is ready to settle the amount, the victim may still feel the need for additional compensation in order to pay for hospital and medical bills such as physical therapy, medication, disability equipment and more. Victims should contact an attorney when they feel that the insurance company or the other party needs offer compensation in excess of that which they have already offered.
