When people need a personal injury lawyer, they know they should get the best personal injury lawyer. However, they aren’t always sure when they should get such a lawyer. When you’re in a car accident, you know you need a car accident lawyer. Same goes for motorcycle accidents, big rig accidents and the like. However, for a personal injury lawyer, it isn’t always so clear cut. We love for our clients to hire us as early as possible in the process, so that we can help them from the very beginning. In this article, we’ll go over when you might need a personal injury attorney, and how we can help.
Hiring the Best Personal Injury Lawyer
We often recommend that our clients hire us as quickly as possible once they’ve been injured. We definitely recommend that potential clients come to us if an insurance company makes them an offer. Never sign something from an insurance company without letting an attorney look at it first. Louder, for the folks in the back, on more time for emphasis: never sign something from an insurance company without letting an attorney look at it first. That way, you won’t get ripped off by the insurance company. If it’s a good deal, we’ll let you know and tell you to sign it. Of course, that’s never happened. The insurance companies almost invariably offer low ball deals right off the bat, but perhaps this is the one time that isn’t true.
Another time to hire an injury attorney is when you suffer an injury that will last. If it’s a long-term injury, you’re’ going to want to hire an attorney to get you all of the compensation that you deserve. That means the kinds of injuries that change your appearance or make it more difficult for you to do your job. When that happens, it can have an extreme effect on your quality of life. What you need, then is a lawyer who can go about getting you the compensation you deserve for everything that you’re going through. That’s what you’ll find at the LA Injury Group.
The same goes for injuries that leave you permanently disabled. Should that occur, you absolutely should get an attorney on your side. The insurance company may make you an offer, but it will be less than you deserve. So many things in your life will change, and you’ll need the experience of a pro lawyer by your side to get you as much as possible. Nothing about the personal injury process is easy. In fact, it may be one of the most difficult experiences that a person can go through. But, the attorney at the LA Injury Group can make it just a little bit easier on you.
It’s important to point out that you should hire a personal injury lawyer even if you think you might be injured severely. So many times, we’ve had clients who didn’t think they were that injured. Maybe they were in a car accident that left them relatively unscathed. Perhaps they fell down the stairs at work and while they might have been a little sore, they didn’t think much of it. They certainly didn’t think to get a lawyer. It seemed like they just had a little injury, a bump or a bruise, and once it was gone, they would be able to go back to their lives.
Giving You the Space to Heal
Unfortunately, what can happen is that injury can get worse. It’s extremely difficult to diagnose yourself. We’re all human, and it’s hard for even experienced doctors to perform their own diagnoses. So, while a small injury may not seem like a big deal to you, it absolutely can become one. A majority of injuries become worse over time, particularly if they aren’t treated by a medical professional. So then, many people who were injured through no fault of their own end up finding it harder to work and live the way they were before. Then, they go about getting an attorney but their case is so much more difficult to prove now.
It’s very hard to craft a compelling counter argument to “if this injury is as bad as you say it is, why didn’t you say anything at the time you were hurt?” of course, the injured party had perfectly good reasons for not trying to get an attorney then, but that doesn’t make it any easier to win the argument. That’s just one of the many reasons that we tell people: when in doubt, schedule a free consultation. They typically don’t last long. They are completely free. We’ve been doing this for a long time, so we will know rather quickly whether or not you have a case. As with so many other things in life, it’s better safe than sorry.
If you’re worried that you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, that’s one more time that you should contact a personal injury attorney. We’ve handled many medical malpractice cases throughout our time, and we know how to win yours. These cases can be difficult for other law firms, because you’re typically taking on some powerful actors: hospitals, doctors, insurance companies and the best lawyers imaginable. That’s why you need a law firm like ours that has done this before. We can put our experience to work in these cases, getting you everything that you deserve.
Medical malpractice personal injury cases are the kinds of cases that should only be handled by law firms that specialize in these kinds of cases. For example, too many other “personal injury law firms” call themselves “personal injury law firms” when really the only kinds of “personal injuries” they can handle are the ones that come about through auto accidents. We have plenty of tremendous auto accident attorneys too, but we make sure that they handle auto accident cases. An auto accident attorney on a medical malpractice case is going to be at a disadvantage when they go up against attorneys who have more experience with these kinds of cases. That’s only common sense.
Medical Malpractice and More
So, when you bring your medical malpractice case to the LA Injury Group, we make sure to put you with an attorney who knows how these kinds of cases work. We make sure that any attorney you’re paired with is one who has been through the entire medical malpractice gauntlet and can put that experience to use for you. They know how to win at the negotiating table and they know how to win in the courtroom, too. That’s what every person who’s been victimized by medical malpractice deserves.
Some people are a bit unsure of exactly what “medical malpractice” means. Typically, it’s when people are injured or even get sick from medical professionals. Often, the medical professionals were careless, incompetent, or even just unprofessional in their conduct and treatment. When we say “medical professionals” in this context we mean nurses, doctors or even whole hospitals, albs, clinics or others. As you can see just from this paragraph, “medical malpractice” covers a lot. These cases require an attorney who really knows how they work. That’s exactly why you deserve an attorney who knows all the ins and outs of medical malpractice.
