Why You Need an Attorney to Pursue a Personal Injury Claim

Why You Need an Attorney to Pursue a Personal Injury Claim

Without an attorney to assist you with your personal injury claim, you may not be getting all that you are entitled to. Even if you think your case is straightforward or not complex, remember that some injuries, could take a while to surface. You don’t want to accept a low-ball and settle before you know what your injuries are worth. That is one of the mistakes that claimants make when they do not have an experienced attorney by their side.

What are the advantages?

Our lead attorney, John Daspit, has formerly worked on trials and litigation for insurance defense. Having previously worked to defend the interests of insurance companies, he knows the all of the strategies they use. Now, as an Austin personal injury lawyer, that experience working on the other side lends itself to the clients that he represents.

These are the advantages claimants can have by working with an experienced lawyer:

  • Knowledge of how best to assess claims
  • Helps you wade through complex legal language
  • Understanding of how insurance companies work
  • Can argue for a better settlement
  • Consultations with expert witnesses and investigators
  • Can settle cases without trial through mediation or arbitration

Furthermore, many attorneys choose to work on a contingency-fee basis, which we do at Daspit Law Firm. This means that clients will not pay any legal fees until the case is won or settled.

Is it worth it to go to trial?

Most personal injury claims do not make it all the way to trial; in fact, either an in-court or out-of-court resolution is almost always the wisest choice. Why is that? The costs of trials add up tremendously. You will have to incur the costs of filing fees, court fees, and eventually, your lawyer’s fees, even if your lawyer works on a contingency-fee basis.

Trials can also be risky. If the judge or jury deciding on the verdict of your case choose not to rule in your favor, you could miss out on being awarded your compensation. While you can try to appeal your case, that is another court procedure, and simply put, this only means more time before your case is finally resolved. Settling the case can mean that you can have more control over the decisions and is almost always a much faster resolution. Your attorney can advise you on the best route to take, based on the circumstances of your case. This is why hiring one is crucial—to negotiate the best possible settlement for you.
