Should I hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

If you were the victim of an accident that has left you injured or you suffered a permanent disability and believe the cause was someone else’s fault, hiring a lawyer as soon as possible is a necessity. You may feel overwhelmed and have a lot of questions you need answered immediately. You’re probably wondering if you really need to hire a personal injury attorney or if you can manage to handle the claim on your own. While it may be true, that not all circumstances require an attorney, if serious injury has occurred you may require the knowledge and skill of an individual who is well-versed in not only personal injury law but the law system in its entirety. It’s likely that insurance companies will be involved and the other party’s insurance company will have an entire team of lawyers working for them, and they are not on your side, they are working against you. Hiring a personal injury attorney to stand up for you will level the playing field, so to speak.

There is a multitude of scenarios that warrant hiring a personal injury attorney. A few examples include, but are not limited to:

Uncertain Who is at Fault

If you find yourself involved in an accident and are unsure who is at fault, it is highly suggested to at least consult with an attorney. Speaking with an attorney will assist you in protecting your rights and can help to defend you from possible cross and counterclaims. If fault is unclear, what is clear is that the other party’s insurance company will try to place blame on you however they can.

Serious Injury or Permanent Disability as a Result of the Accident

If you sustained a serious injury due to an accident or was diagnosed with a serious lifelong illness or permanent disability due to said accident, contact The Mayer Law Firm with haste. Keep in mind that consultations are free and if you are facing the possibility of lifelong pain, financial burden, etc., a highly skilled personal injury attorney is an invaluable piece of the puzzle.

Insurance Company has Delayed or Denied Your Claim

Insurance companies have teams of lawyers working on their side for their benefit, they may attempt to delay your claim being well aware that hospital/doctor bills are piling up. Delaying a claim is a tactic used to offer an individual a significantly lower amount than your claim may actually be worth. More often than not, claims are flat-out denied. There are complex laws and procedures surrounding personal injury claims, important details may be missed due to the carelessness of the insurance company. My Florida Personal Injury Firm will be sure your case is treated with the care and concern it deserves.

Negligence Principles

The majority of personal injury cases are based on the legal theory of negligence. Negligence occurs when a company or person’s behaviors and/or practices falls below safety and regulatory standards and results in the victim’s harm or wrongful death. When attempting to establish negligence, a certain criterion must be satisfied. It must be proven that the defendant owed the victim a duty of care. For instance, in a traffic accident case, you must prove the defendant had a duty to follow traffic laws and regulations. In a medical malpractice or wrongful death case you must prove that the defendant had the duty to act in accordance with standard medical practices. Secondly, you then must show the defendant has failed to uphold that duty, for example, a doctor’s care was below the standard or a driver broke a traffic law. Lastly, it must be shown that the failure to uphold the duty specifically caused the injury to the victim, resulting in suffered damages.
