While it may be tempting to try to handle a personal injury claim on your own, this often results in increased stress, less effort dedicated to healing, and lost compensation. Personal injury attorneys are trained and experienced to handle these types of cases in as efficient and effective a manner as possible. An attorney can seek optimal compensation for your case, rather than the bare minimum the accused party may offer you if you don’t have an attorney.
Personal injury attorneys are aware of the challenges that will face your case. They are practiced in dealing with insurance companies guilty of unscrupulous business practices as well as other parties that may seek to shift the blame and make it impossible for a victim to receive adequate compensation.
After an injury, your focus should remain on healing and recovering from the injury you sustained. Additionally, it is important to your wellbeing as well as the strength of your case that you exhibit evidence of a determination to readjust to your everyday life again. When a person is in pain, it can be hard to evaluate a situation with a clear mind, not to mention the level of stress handling your own personal injury claim can add to the already stressful process of recovery. If you are being hospitalized for your injuries, you may struggle to access the time and resources needed to work your own case. An attorney will be able to look for and gather evidence you might otherwise not have access to, and already has the know-how to pursue your case. A good attorney will encourage you to focus on recovery while they handle the footwork of your case.
Personal injury law is complicated and difficult to interpret. An experienced personal injury attorney will be practiced in reading the law, interpreting it, and applying it to your specific situation to find out what kind of compensation you are legally eligible for and entitled to.
If the idea of hiring an attorney seems out of reach financially, it may help to note that reputable personal injury attorneys work on contingency. This means you won’t be required to pay unless and until your attorneys win your case, at which point they would be paid a previously agreed-upon percentage of the winnings. Even the initial consultation is free; it can’t hurt to reach out, find out what your options are, and get some trustworthy advice on how to proceed in handling your personal injury claim.

Here’s a Quick Question. I’m Rob Rosenthal with AskTheLawyers.com. Why do you need a lawyer if you’ve been injured? Here’s what Philadelphia attorney Stewart Eisenberg said.
Well, if you have suffered an injury and it’s substantial, you need someone to guide you through the legal process, if you have a legal case. If somebody is speeding and is drunk and hits you in a car and you have to be hospitalized, and you have to be out of work, those injuries are compensable under the law, you can and should hire a lawyer to bring a claim for you so that you can recover what you’re entitled to under the law. Most people don’t know what they’re entitled to under the law and that’s why you need a lawyer.
