Injury Attorney - When Should You Hire a Lawyer?

Whether you have slipped and fallen, been injured on the job, or have been in a car accident, you may find that the medical bills are starting to pile up. Even with insurance coverage, many accident victims have to reach deep inside their pockets to pay the bills, leading to bankruptcy for many. To help protect your own interests and reach a fair settlement, it's best to consult with an injury attorney in some cases. The problem with working only with the insurance company is that it's in their best interests to offer minimal settlements. They will give you as little as they think you will accept.

However, when you have a personal injury attorney on hand, you can challenge this settlement and work to negotiate for a fair, just amount of compensation. There are many different types of circumstances that could warrant the need for a qualified attorney. For example, if you have sustained serious injuries that could lead to a long-term disability, you'll want a lawyer on your side to get you adequate compensation for the cost of ongoing physical therapy and lost wages. If you've been in a car accident and the other driver was underinsured, this could leave you high and dry without a lawyer as well.

Another situation that could lead to the need for a Bradenton injury attorney is if you have been in an accident and there is any dispute regarding who was at fault. In this case, you'll need to provide your attorney with all the pertinent details of the case, to help them negotiate. This could include the contact information of witnesses, the police reports, weather conditions at the time of the accident, and traffic tickets that were issued. With this information, the lawyers can help investigate your case further and help you receive adequate compensation for your medical injuries.

Some accident victims feel pressured by insurance claims adjusters. They may try to complicate the issue with overly technical speech, and push you to accept a settlement quickly. If you feel pressured in any way or have been offered a settlement that you feel is unfair, you will want to consult with an injury attorney as soon as possible. An attorney will have the experience necessary to deal directly with the insurance adjusters, negotiating your case to get you the settlement you deserve. These are just a few circumstances in which an attorney could be extremely useful.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
