Why Should I Hire an Attorney for a Personal Injury?
If you have been injured, you should seriously consider hiring an attorney. At Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, we realize that not everyone has a fond view of lawyers. We know our profession is the punchline for many jokes. Still, when you need help, an attorney is the person you want in your corner – and not just any attorney, but the right attorney. We love what we do, and we become a fierce advocate for all the clients we represent. At the end of the day, that is why you need an attorney. You need an advocate.
The Insurance Company Will Have an Attorney
If you are going to get into a fight, you do not want to go into it unprepared. The insurance company will have an experienced attorney whose job is to minimize their exposure, or what they pay out in damages so they can maintain higher levels of profitability. Their attorneys are good, making it more important for you to have one after a personal injury.
There Is More Than One Option After Hiring an Attorney
Keep in mind that just because you hire an attorney, that does not mean you will end up in court. Very often, an attorney can negotiate with the insurance company and by presenting a compelling argument, receive a generous settlement offer outside the courtroom. This is actually the best case scenario because it will save you time and money. When you hire an attorney after a personal injury, you are simply giving yourself access to more options.
An Attorney Has Inside Knowledge
When the insurance company does make you an offer, how will you know whether or not it is fair, generous, or too low? Without industry experience or inside knowledge, you won’t. Since we have years of experience working with the insurance companies, we can tell quickly whether a settlement offer is a good deal and whether you should accept it or go to court. This can result in you receiving a much better offer.
Schedule a Consultation After a Personal Injury
The decision of whether or not to hire an attorney is ultimately up to you. What you should know is that your insurance company will not be on your side while your claim is being processed. Their goal is to minimize their own losses. With that in mind, hiring an attorney is the only way for you to get an advocate who will look out for your best interest.
