Personal Injury Lawyer -
Following an accident you'll hear a person say that they
don't need to see a personal injury lawyer, TOO
expensive! Here, we will set out for you some
reasons why NOT seeking, at minimum, a consultation
with an accident lawyer could end up costing you a lot
More often than not, regardless of whether you caused
the accident or are its victim, if you do not seek a consultation
with an accident lawyer as soon as possible after the
accident you may well end up regretting your decision.
The overriding reasons for saying this are two-fold:
• the insurance company you will be making your
claim against are trying to minimise their losses; and
• you most probably don't know what you're entitled
As A Victim Of An Accident
Let's assume you are the victim of an unfortunate accident.
Let's further assume that your insurance company has come
through and has agreed to pay all your medical bills.
Now, you may well be feeling that your insurance company
are the good guys and you don't need a lawyer's advice.
What's happened is nothing less than what the insurance
company is obligated to do under the terms and conditions
of your accident policy. Moreover, the insurance company
is hoping to play on the fact that you feel somewhat indebted
to their generosity.
That way, they hope, you'll not bring about a bigger
claim for what you are rightly entitled to. In the long
run that means that they don't have quiet as big an insurance
claim loss and they can still make a profit from your
In short, they are protecting their financial well being
at the cost of your entitlement rights. But, unless you
have spoken to a personal injury lawyer you'll
not know this and you'll feel that everything is fine.
So, the next time you are in an car
accident or accident, ask yourself this question:
'Is my insurance company interested in protecting me and
my rights, or are they more concerned with paying a dividend
to their shareholders?'
On the other hand, a professional compensation lawyer
is normally an ethical impartial third party who knows
what your rights are. Aside from possibly being paid a
fee, not from or by you, he's also likely to have another
job to help a victim better than its' insurance company,
(and, keep in mind, if any court proceedings occur, these
fees are reclaimed from the opponent side).
So, why shouldn't they tell you the truth about what
compensation you are entitled to? What's more, even
if they do have a financial interest in your case, surely
the better compensated you are, the better compensated
As such, if anything, they have even more interest in making
sure that you know exactly what your rights are and of
making sure that you claim for those rights according
to what you are entitled to.
Look at it like this, it's not too difficult to see who
the interested party is and who the independent party
is. Now ask yourself: 'Do you want to take advice from
someone who is interested in minimising your claim, or
someone who is interested in maximising it?'
Cause Of An Accident
Now let's look at it from the point of view of, you being
the person at fault in the accident. You may well feel
that you have nothing to fear, as your insurance company
will pay for the damage done. You may even find that initially
your insurance company agrees with this. But why...?
Unless you see an accident lawyer as soon as possible
after the accident you'll never know. Why? Are you
100% sure that it was your fault...?
The insurance company has to be polite, you're their
customer! However, once the claim is over and you're
thrilled with their service, you're definitely going to
renew your policy. But the extra couple of hundred they
ask for will justify the accident? 'Sir/ma'am, you had
an accident and your premium has increased!'
Knowing exactly what your rights or obligations are after
an accident can be extremely tricky. In most cases it
will depend on what happened to cause the accident in
the first place.
As such, seeking the advice of a compensation lawyer
as soon as you can following a personal
injury is the only independent way you can really
determine and know exactly what you are entitled to or
what you may be liable for arising from the accident.
It's easy to proceed with a compensation
claim and gain maximum results without the hassle,
costs and confusion. Discover the 12 revolutions of using
