After you’ve been in an accident that was the fault of someone else, you might be wondering if you should file a legal claim against them. You might be suffering from injuries and other damages and want to hold the other party accountable for their actions. That’s where a personal injury lawyer can come in and help you.

A personal injury lawyer can help you investigate what happened, determine who was at fault, and calculate the damages that you’re owed in compensation. That way, you don’t settle for less than you deserve. We’ll protect your rights and give you the peace of mind that you need after an accident that upends your life.

Let’s take a look at how a personal injury lawyer could help you with a claim so you can determine whether or not you need legal help after an accident caused by another person.

How A Personal Injury Lawyer Helps You

Most of the time, if you’re contemplating whether or not you need a personal injury lawyer, chances are that yes, you could use the help of an attorney. When you hire a lawyer to represent you, they’ll know exactly what actions you need to take and what to do to ensure that your claim is as strong as possible. If you try to handle a claim on your own, or deal with insurance companies on your own, you might get bullied into settling for less than you deserve.

Insurance companies often look out for their own bottom lines and push you to settle for less. If you’re involved in a legal claim without your own lawyer, the other party’s lawyer could also push you to settle for less than you deserve. You might think that the amount of compensation you’re offered is fair, but really you could deserve much more just based on your injuries.

When you hire a lawyer, you can have peace of mind knowing that someone is defending your rights and fighting for you. They’ll look into what happened to you, gather all of the relevant information and documentation, prove that the other person was at fault, and use the documentation to calculate how much you should get in compensation.

An attorney will allow you to worry about other things while they handle the legal side of things. You might think that hiring a lawyer will be added stress, but it could actually reduce the amount of stress that you experience after an accident that injures you. A personal injury attorney will be able to take over all of the legal concerns that you have so that you can focus on healing.

What a Lawyer Can Recover for You

One of the main benefits that a personal injury lawyer can provide you is that they ensure you get the financial recover that you deserve for your injuries and damages. They’ll use all of the information they gather from your claim to calculate what you’re owed in compensation. Whether they are economic or noneconomic damages, they’ll have proof of your costs so that you can get what you deserve.

In terms of economic damages, or the real costs that the accident caused you, your lawyer will look at all of the bills you incurred from the accident and use them to determine how much you’re owed for those costs. They’ll look at your medical bills, treatment costs, repair bills, and any lost wages that you might have incurred after the accident. They’ll also look at cost of future care or future lost wages so that you can recover what you’re owed in the future as well.

On top of those damages, you could also recover noneconomic damages, which are the more abstract costs that you suffered from the accident. Your attorney will look at what you went through as a result of your injuries, like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, or loss of consortium to determine how much you’re owed for these damages.

In rare cases, you might even deserve punitive damages. Having a lawyer on your side will ensure that you get the full amount that you deserve and hold the other party accountable for their negligent actions.
