Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in 2023?

insurance claim

If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you might be wondering what you should do next. Maybe the insurance company is calling your phone, asking for a recorded statement or medical files. Now on top of your injuries, you have to deal with the insurance company.  Suddenly, all of this extra work and stress is thrown at you. You have conflicting messages coming from adjusters, medical bills, and you’re confused about how to handle your situation. What steps can you take to get the compensation you deserve? The San Antonio injury lawyers at Villarreal and Begum have been helping injury victims for years, and we have the experience needed to help you.

While the insurance process can be complicated, you might think you can handle it. After all, you’re not required to hire an attorney. So what are the benefits of hiring an attorney? Is it the right move? Will a lawyer dramatically affect the results of your case?

Getting Your Claim On Track

When it comes to filing claims and lawsuits, you have to abide by strict timelines. Not everyone has the time to spend filing and searching for paperwork for a personal injury claim. Having a personal injury lawyer helps to make sure all timing and proper procedures are followed. Keeping things within the stipulated time frames will help keep your compensation claim on the right track. Which is especially important for getting a fast settlement. This can be a game-changer for most people, who have to wait for a clean bill of health by their doctor to seek compensation. Your attorney can start the process while you’re recuperating, and ensure you get the full amount of compensation you deserve.

Additionally, your lawyer can help you get the medical attention you need. Experienced personal injury attorneys can match you with the right medical provider for your injuries, and help you recover as soon as possible.

Litigation and Legal Options

A lawyer is much more than an advocate in court. Lawyers are your consultant throughout your claims process. Being able to know your options, and what they entitle is important when making any decision. Your Attorney can help you figure out your options, and help you make the best decision. A great example of this is litigation. During a personal injury claim, you usually have two options. File a claim, or file a lawsuit. Usually, your lawyer can prevent your case from heading to court. Lawyers are great negotiators and can help get you the compensation you deserve.  However, sometimes the insurance companies don’t want to pay what they owe. In that case, your attorney can present you with your options, and help you decide if going to court is the best option.

If you do go to court, that’s where your lawyer can give you some peace of mind. Having an experienced legal expert can help level the playing field in your battle against the insurance company. Being able to analyze and counter the defense’s evidence is essential, and your lawyer will be able to do that in court. Countless studies have shown that getting a lawyer will increase your chances of getting the compensation you deserve. Your lawyer knows what is fair, and will fight to get you what is owed to you. This can drastically reduce the chances of you settling for less than your case is worth.
