When you get injured in an accident involving multiple parties, you may be hesitant to call an attorney. However, there are certain situations in which it is necessary to call an attorney in order to receive proper compensation for your injury. Here are the top signs you should hire an attorney for a personal injury.
- Serious or Permanent Disability – If you were seriously injured in an accident that could result in a long-term or permanent disability, you should call an injury attorney right away. There is no reason you should suffer from an injury and have to pay for all the expenses that come along with it, especially when it wasn’t your fault.
- Not Sure Who’s at Fault – If you were involved in an incident with multiple parties, and you’re unsure whose fault it was, you should consult with a personal injury attorney right away. More often than not, the other party’s insurance will likely try to blame you. Hiring an attorney will protect your rights and defend you if counterclaims occur.
- Insurance Company is Delaying or Denying – It’s not uncommon for insurance companies to delay or deny your valid insurance claim just because they assume you don’t know anything about the laws and procedures of an insurance claim. If this happens to you, consult with an attorney to validate your claim and fight for proper compensation.
