What is the benefit of hiring a lawyer?
A personal injury attorney should basically be providing two services to you:
- the attorney’s skill, experience, and knowledge should add to the value of your claim
- the attorney should, with input from you, handle all the insurance hassles and legal meetings, paperwork, telephone calls, negotiating, court appearances, etc., necessary to resolve your case.
A personal injury attorney can also maximize the value of your claim by presenting every relevant medical and legal fact to an opposing insurance company, insurance defense attorney, or jury.
