Why You Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
Why You Need to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
Nobody picks getting injured, if they can avoid it. This is because suffering a personal injury can be a very significant event in your life. It is uncomfortable, inconvenient, expensive and can interrupt or put an end to many of your life dreams. And the more serious your injuries, the worse the outcomes can be for you.
Often, deciding whether you need a personal injury attorney after an injury caused by someone else means deciding if you have lost enough. It means assessing your losses and deciding if you can condone the violation of your rights. It means looking at the financial, emotional and medical struggles you will be facing and deciding if it’s worth it to right the wrong that has been done against you.
The aftermath of an accident is never a pretty sight, and often, it only gets worse. People decide to hire an attorney because they want to stop that ugly slide. They make this decision because they recognize that they should not have to pay for someone else’s carelessness, negligence or inconsideration.
At Kenny Perez Law, we believe one of your most fundamental rights is the right to stay free from injury by another person. And if you are injured, your second most important right will be the right to fight that wrong that has been done against you and seek redress.
If you have decided to right the wrong done against you, it only makes sense to put your best foot forward. With the deep knowledge and experience of the Brownsville personal injury attorneys at Kenny Perez Law on your side, coupled with the fact that we will not collect a dime unless we win, you literally have nothing to lose by trusting us to fight for you.
Here are 5 more reasons why you should have us on your side in your Brownsville or Rio Grande Valley area personal injury case.
#1: Save yourself stress
From the moment that you get injured (especially if you have a severe injury), there will be banks of experts and attorneys working towards one thing: minimizing the effects of your accident and your claim for compensation. Their job is literally to find ways to pay you as little as possible and they are very experienced at this, because they do it every day.
They will launch investigations, hire experts and do all in their power to undermine your claim. This not as a result of anything personal – it’s just their job. To get a positive outcome, you will need an experienced and knowledgeable professional that can help you even the playing field. If you try to go it on your own, you may get taken advantage of and have your claim rejected or reduced to insignificance.
You need a professional that will ensure that the insurance company and the other party deals with you fairly. The Brownsville personal injury lawyers at Kenny Perez Law have been fighting for residents of Brownsville, Harlingen, McAllen and the entire Rio Grande Valley area of South Texas for years. With our deep knowledge of Texas personal injury laws and extensive experience, we can help you hold the at-fault parties and their insurers liable.
#2: Level the field
Whether you want them to or not, several gears start turning once you get injured. Medical bills and paperwork begin to accumulate. All sorts of insurers get interested. Your own insurer with your personal injury protection, the at-fault party’s liability carrier and other interested parties spark to life. Many of these will be calling you, sending you letters and asking questions that might confuse you.
In all this mix, you will also be trying to cope with the extent of your injuries and the possibility that some of your life dreams have been interrupted. Your workplace will be calling and trying to gauge the extent of your injuries and how much absence you will need. Simply, it may feel like the world has gone mad.
This is why the first reason you need an attorney is to save yourself all this stress. Whether you’ve been in a car or motorcycle accident, our auto accident injury lawyers or motorcycle injury lawyers can help you relieve the pressure. They take away all of your accident-related trouble and leave you time to spend with your family.
#3: Avoid traps and red tape
There are several aspects of a personal injury claim that will include many pit falls for the unwary. Many of these may enable insurance companies to minimize your claim or even deny it out of hand. Sadly, many of these things seem very innocuous but once they occur, insurers pounce on them as means to avoid paying fair compensation.
For instance, immediately after the accident, an insurance loss adjuster may call you to “verify” the details of the accident. They may try to catch you out by getting you to say things that minimize the extent of the accident or your injury. Even at the scene of the accident, you may say things like “I’m okay” or “I’ll be fine”. Insurers often interpret these statements to mean you suffered no or minimal hurt from the accident. If you are later diagnosed with injuries, they may seize on this to deny your medical bills and claim that you must have gotten injured doing something else.
But with the solid advice that a personal injury attorney can provide, you will be well-armed with the information you need to avoid traps such as these. Even when the insurance company disputes that their client was at fault, a skilled Brownsville auto accident injury lawyer or public space injury lawyer can help you investigate. With their experience, they will be able to help establish your case and your claim for compensation.
#4: Receive fair compensation
Perhaps most importantly, hiring a personal injury lawyer does wonders to your chances of recovering fair compensation. There’s no easy way to say this, but insurance companies literally lick their lips when they see an unrepresented individual suing for compensation.
They know that you are unlikely to know most of the specialized information that will help you present a strong claim. Due to this, they will deceive you and present law-ball offers, aiming to get you to settle for far less than what you should receive.
With our Brownsville personal injury attorneys, you can rest assured that we will do all in our power to recover fair compensation on your behalf. It is not often about the money. No amount of money can change the fact that you have suffered a serious and possibly life-altering injury.
Rather, we insist on recovering every dollar you are entitled to because that is one way you can be compensated for your injuries. With the payout from the insurance company, you can begin to put your life back together and at least live with the assurance that you will not suffer financially for someone else’s negligence.
#5: Assert your rights
Finally, you should know that, contrary to popular culture, there is absolutely nothing wrong with asserting your rights. No matter who has injured you, whether a favorite boss at work, a friend or a friendly establishment, you simply should not suffer for their carelessness. And in most cases, your action will not be against that specific individual that has injured you but instead, will be against their insurer or yours.
Recognize that when you suffer a personal injury, you have been violated. At Kenny Perez Law, our task is to see that you do not suffer as a result and, at the very least, are restored to your position before the injury.
So, you see that there are many good reasons to consult one of the Brownsville personal injury attorneys at Kenny Perez Law. You need a professional who can guide you, answer your questions and help you strategize on how to recover fair compensation.
