Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Even the smallest accidents can come with serious consequences. When you suffer an injury at the hand of a third party, the injury can begin a sequence of legal events that you need to handle in order to recover compensation to cover medical costs, vehicle damage, and more. Without it, you’ll have to pay for every penny you sustained from your accident out of pocket, which is why you need a personal injury lawyer to guarantee the best possible chance of success.

Settlement agreements and personal injury lawsuits are a complicated yet necessary way for victims to hold the party responsible for the bodily, financial, or emotional injury accountable for their actions. They require an understanding of the law, negotiation tactics, deadlines, and a significant amount of attention, even for minor accidents. Teaming up with an attorney not only gives you a competitive edge during legal proceedings but it also shifts the weight of the legal side of the accident onto your attorney, giving you a moment to focus on physically recovering.

Find the Help You Need for No Upfront Fee

Most people don’t want to share their story with an attorney because of the upfront fee, but Morgan and Morgan takes a different approach.

Connect With an Attorney for a Comprehensive Breakdown of Your Damages

The fallout of an accident doesn’t end when you leave the scene. The moments going forward are often complicated by hospital visits, missed days at work, and lingering pain that can complicate your ability to return to a normal life.

Let’s use a car accident case as an example. In an accident, victims commonly sustain the following damages:

  • Medical expenses, including ambulance transportation, treatments, tests, and the cost of your hospital stay
  • Lost wages
  • The cost of alternate transportation to and from work when you’re able to return
  • Third-party therapies and additional treatments
  • Limited or total loss of earning/care capacity

All of these combined can become significantly overwhelming. Without a personal injury lawyer, you run the risk of finding yourself in a situation where you’re forced to cover these costs out-of-pocket, which can take years, if not longer. It’s not something to gamble with, but don’t worry - Morgan and Morgan is here to protect victims from those very circumstances, regardless of the type, size, or severity of your case.

The Insurance Company Isn’t Always On Your Side

We expect our insurance providers to honor our contracts when we need our benefits, but remember that insurance companies are businesses, too. They’ll try to cut costs wherever possible, which, in some cases, means denying clients their rightful compensation after an accident. It happens more often than you’d think, and many people won’t realize it because they hide their actions in complicated legal jargon and negotiation tactics.

They’ve dealt with enough clients to refine their strategies, but Morgan and Morgan has handled enough insurance companies that they fear our involvement. They’re well familiar with our track record of never settling for less than clients deserve, so they skip the lowball offers and move cases along more quickly. If they don’t, we’ll see them in court, and our team is always prepared for that scenario, starting from the beginning of your claim.
