When Should You Contact A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Victims Receive Medical Bills After Personal Injury

If you've recently suffered a personal injury, it's absolutely normal to be considering taking legal action. However, you may also be asking yourself questions such as "Is my injury serious enough for a lawsuit?or "When is the right time to call a personal injury lawyer?

The Maryland Injury Guys attorneys for personal injury discuss this topic in the following blog entry.

When To Contact An Injury Attorney

Depending on the nature of your injury, you may have significant doubts as to whether it is worth it to file a legal claim or lawsuit. Many victims of injuries are often worried about how long the claims process can take or how much legal representation can cost.

Perhaps the biggest reason why injury victims don't pursue lawsuits right away is that they believe that an insurance policy will cover their damages. Whether it's their own insurance or that of the person who caused the injury, victims expect their medical costs and other damages to be paid for in good faith. Unfortunately, when it comes to insurance policy benefits, the cases in which all of the victim's damages are covered are more the exception than the rule.

The fact of the matter is that, without an injury lawsuit or other legal injury claim, victims may not get the compensation required to "make them whole again." Some may not even receive enough compensation to cover the existing medical bills, let alone any others that may come up in the future. Lost wages, another type of damage commonly recovered in injury lawsuits, is rarely taken into account by an insurance provider.

It is because of the previous points that we highly suggest contacting a lawyer after just about any injury. This is simply because most victims are not aware of the extensive legal options that exist for compensation. By speaking with an injury law firm, the injured parties can get a sense of what options are at their disposal. Even if they refrain from pursuing a claim, at least they have made this decision in an informed manner.

On the other hand, some specific situations can arise in injury claims and when they do, it is critical for victims and their loved ones to seek legal representation. For instance:

  1. The insurance company refuses to pay - if the insurance provider who you believe is liable for your damages is unwilling to pay, then you should seek the help of an attorney. Along the same vein, if the compensation or settlement you are being offered seems insufficient, contact a law firm.
  2. Unsure of who is responsible - if you suffered an injury but are not sure if someone may be responsible for compensating you for your damages, an injury attorney can help you determine liability.
  3. Grave injuries or death - We previously mentioned that victims of most injury-causing incidents should seek legal help. This is particularly true when the injuries are severe in nature. For example, if they require significant surgical intervention to save the life of the victim or if any kind of intensive care is required. Medical treatment in Maryland can be very expensive; it may only be possible to be compensated for all medical expenses by filing a lawsuit.
