When is it Time to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Personal injuries are never an easy time in a family’s life. Having to deal with the injury and then the result of the injury, medical bills, hospital bills, maybe finding a new car or home, etc. There is nothing easy about dealing with any of them. Most people who are dealing with these believe they know how to handle it when in reality, there are times they should be looking to professionals.

There are many reasons why people want to handle a personal injury on their own and it’s understandable – don’t want to pay more money, can’t handle the stress, don’t want to think about the injury anymore – things like that. However, there are even more reasons why people who have been subject of a personal injury, need the help of an attorney. Tampa injury attorneys are experts when it comes to knowing the law and what you are entitled to in this situation.

Here are a few reasons why you need an attorney to handle your personal injury:

  1. Are you seriously injured? The most important focus is trying to heal and recover from this injury. If you are trying to heal and deal with all of the financial settlements and go to court at the same time, healing is usually on the back burner. It is important to have someone who knows the law there with you while you are still trying to heal but needing to deal with these important issues as well. This can put enormous stress on your family, so keep them in mind during this stressful time and is it worth it for the family to continue to deal with the stress of this accident?
  2. Is the other party refusing to pay you? Do you know what you are entitled to? Is it impossible to get anyone on the phone? Having a personal injury attorney there to help you with this can help relieve some of the stress in a extremely stressful situation.
  3. Are other insurance company representatives contacting you? If other insurance companies are trying to contact you and your insurance company is not helping, it might be time to look into a personal injury lawyer. Do you know all the legalities and different laws? If you are not familiar, which most people are not, another good reason to find yourself a lawyer.
  4. Are your bills racking up? Personal injury sometimes results in many visits with doctors or long stays in hospitals, both which are usually not something your insurance is set up to cover at that moment and now the bills are piling up. While waiting for a settlement to happen on your own, your medical bills are quickly putting you in debt. A personal injury attorney can help settle these bills before they start going to collections.
  5. Are you unable to work? Being unable to work has many problems that go along with the financial situation for your entire family. This causes all of the medical bills to be put on hold and this is when collection calls start happening. A personal injury attorney will help get you back on your feet and the compensation that you need for not being able to work.

Professionals like Winter and Yonkers, personal injury attorneys Tampa, are extremely helpful in working to resolve personal injury issues. During a time of immense stress, it is important to make sure that you and your family are being put first and not just waiting. Don’t do it alone!
