Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer

Millennial Magazine - personal-injury

We live in a dangerous world. Every year, almost six million people die from injuries, and countless more are injured and survive. Unfortunately, you can’t change how dangerous the world is. Accidents are almost impossible to predict. However, you can change what happens after you’re on the receiving end of a bad incident that results in your personal injury. 

Whether you’ve recently been involved in a car crash, you or a loved one was abused in a medical treatment facility, you had a work-related injury, or even got hit on an electric scooter, you’re almost always entitled to a lot more compensation than you would otherwise get. 

In today’s post, we’re going to be talking about hiring a personal injury lawyer and some of the top reasons why you should consider it. The right lawyer can make a world of difference in your injury claim! 

Why Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer? 

Every year, law firms like California-based JT Legal Group are able to provide their clients with millions of dollars in compensation. That’s money that they otherwise would have never been able to get on their own. You’re entitled to a lot more rights than most insurance companies will ever let you on to, and the right personal injury lawyer can make sure that you get what you deserve. 

For example, if you’re involved in an auto crash, and you’re not at fault, then you’re almost always able to receive compensation far beyond what the other driver’s insurance offers. At first, they may try to make out as if they’re only able to compensate you for a small amount. They may even offer you a bad deal on your vehicle if it’s been declared a total loss! 

The right personal injury lawyer can fight your case with the auto insurance provider to ensure that you get more than enough money to pay for your medical bills, compensate you for time missed working, and even increase your settlement payout. You’ll never know if you don’t ask! 

Accident Statistics In California

According to the California Highway Patrol’s 2017 report, there were 193,564 auto crashes that resulted in personal injury and 277,160 others who were injured in auto-related accidents. Needless to say, California has a lot of accidents. Unfortunately, many of the individuals on the receiving end of the accident are only compensated minorly or left with barely enough to cover basic medical bills. 

Can A Lawyer Guarantee Me Money? 

Although no lawyer or law firm can give you a 100% guarantee that your case will be successful, many lawyers do have a policy that will offer free representation if you don’t win the case. However, you’ll need to double-check with each law firm you’re interested in as they often offer these deals selectively, based on the type of accident you had. 

That being said, as long as you have solid evidence, the legal firm can build a strong case for you that will, hopefully, result in you getting paid far more than you otherwise would. The best part? Most personal injury lawyers take their payment after your case has been solved and use some of the insurance money they helped you win to pay themselves. This means there are virtually no out-of-pocket costs!
