Why is Hiring an Accident Attorney Important
Research from the National Center for Health Statistics reveals that over 31 million personal injuries requiring a physician’s care occur each year, while two million people end up needing hospitalization for their injuries. Many of these accidents were unpredictable and unexpected, leaving the victim with repercussions that could last weeks, months or even the rest of their life. Dealing with the aftermath of a personal injury can be stressful, frustrating, painful and scary. Having someone at your side who has experience with the recovery process can make your experience less traumatic and devastating.
The Complexities of Personal Injury Cases
Your personal injury situation may warrant the need for an accident attorney. There is a lot involved with personal injury resolution, even if you weren’t at fault for the incident. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, such as financial help with the medical treatment costs and pain and suffering experienced as a result of the accident. However, this isn’t an easy process to navigate on your own. Personal injury claims can involve dealing with insurance companies, experienced claims adjusters and even defense attorneys that may make it difficult to navigate the settlement process on your own.
The Counsel of an Experienced Attorney
Our California personal injury lawyers know how the legal system works and know how to work through the complexities of a case. The California Trial Attorneys are careful when taking on new clients, choosing first to thoroughly evaluate a case and determine all available options. This may mean recommending to move forward with litigation or advising to pursue resolution without it. There are several benefits that come when seeking counsel from an experienced accident attorney.
Explanation of Local Law
The way injury cases are handled or the determination of at-fault parties varies by location. The Kalfayan Merjanian team is well versed in personal injury law. This knowledge allows them to see the viability of the case and determine the possible rules that could apply to a specific situation. They can apply the rules to demonstrate that the other party is at fault and liable for the injuries.
Greater Compensation Potential
Working directly with an insurance company for compensation may not yield the same results as having a lawyer contact the insurance company on your behalf. Insurance companies will often pay out the minimum possible when it comes to compensation, and individuals fighting on their own against these practices are often overwhelmed and unable to hold out for a better deal. When our team takes a case, they negotiate and communicate on behalf of their clients. WIth the assistance of an experienced attorney, an individual is free to focus on the physical and emotional recovery that often takes place following a traumatic incident.
Thorough Collection of Evidence
Regardless of the severity of injuries, it could be hard to prove an injury or damages claim. Attorneys who understand injury law know what a thorough collection of evidence should include, and collect accident details, medical reports, and any other documentation available to strengthen a case.
In accident cases, proving, from a legal standard, who is at fault can sometimes be one of the biggest challenges. This determination of liability is one of the reasons why injury cases can take so long to be resolved. When the insurance companies disagree or cannot determine which party is at fault, it jeopardizes the hope of receiving compensation for lost wages, property damage, medical expenses or pain and suffering experienced as a result of the accident. An experienced accident attorney may use the collection of evidence and resources to show that the other party bears the burden of liability.
