Knowing When to Hire a Lawyer for Injury

Even though you have an insurance policy with a personal injury clause, this doesn’t mean you will never have the need to hire a lawyer for injury in the future.  In fact, your insurance company may be the primary reason that you hire one.  Suffice it to say, insurance companies today can be extremely greedy when it comes to compensating their clients equitably for their injuries.  In some instances, the threat of hiring an attorney or having one threaten the insurance company with a law suit might get you compensated without a court battle.  Unfortunately, these cases will usually wind up going to court.

Knowing when to hire a personal injury lawyer usually depends on the different type of accident or injury that you have incurred.  The four categories of accidents and injuries listed below will usually require hiring an injury lawyer.

Exposure to dangerous drugs and harmful toxic elements – when we get exposed to contaminants in the air, soil, or water, we can become seriously ill.  Proving that your illness is directly attributed to being exposed to toxic elements is extremely difficult and will require complex medical and scientific data to support your claim.  You will need the expertise of a lawyer for injury to fight that company and be compensated for the damages that result.

Long-term injuries – some injuries cause physical damage to your appearance and your ability to perform your job.  It may take months to recover or in some cases, the damage may be permanent.  Figuring out how severe the damage is and how it negatively impacts one’s life requires skills that the average individual does not have, hence the need for hiring an injury lawyer.

Medical cases – if you have been injured due to the negligence of a medical professional (e.g. a clinic, hospital, or laboratory, or a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider), you are entitled to compensation for their carelessness.  However, fighting these industry giants requires the services of an injury lawyer.

Severe injuries – the compensation a client receives is usually determined by the severity and extent of the injuries they have incurred.  Doctors’ statements and medical bills pursuant to your case will help but you will also need a lawyer for injury on your side to plead your case so that you receive the compensation you deserve. can help you with your legal and personal injury needs so that you are properly compensated for your injuries.  Please contact us today.


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.
