Do I Need An Attorney for My Accident Case?
The decision to hire an attorney for your Palm Springs personal injury accident case is a highly personal decision and one that only you can make after careful consider. There is no legal requirement that you retain an attorney for a personal injury accident case. In some cases, you may not actually need an attorney to obtain compensation for your injuries. Each case is unique, and each victim’s decision is a personal one, but the legal team at The Ledger Law Firm-Palm Springs suggests that you ask three important questions when deciding whether or not you need the services of an experienced attorney. First “Is negligence clear?” Second “How serious are my injuries?” and third “How much time do I have to devote to negotiating a settlement?”
The first question is critical. In order to recover compensation for your injuries, the other party must admit negligence or fault. In some cases, the other party readily admits they were at fault and the insurance adjuster is calling asking to settle days after the accident. In many cases, however, negligence is not quite as clear. It may be clear to you, but to settle the case quickly and easily without legal representation the other party must agree with your opinion. If there is any question at all regarding negligence then the assistance of an experienced Palm Springs personal injury attorney should be considered.
The next question centers around your injuries. For minor injuries that do not require lengthy medical treatment and that are not likely to cause long term medical problems, you may be able to value your damages yourself. For more serious injuries or for injuries that are likely to cause long term physical or mental problems then you may need an experienced attorney to help you accurately determine what your injuries are worth. In California, a victim is entitled to economic and non-economic damages. While economic damages can be easily valued in some cases, the non-economic damages (things such as pain and suffering) can be more complicated when you have suffered more than simple bumps and bruises.
That last question revolves around your time. Communicating with the insurance adjuster, compiling your bills and medical reports and negotiating a settlement can be extremely time consuming in even the most simple of accidents. The more complicated the issues involved in the case the more time that will be required to settle the case. For many people, time is money and they simply do not have the time to devote to settling a personal injury case without the help of an attorney. You definitely do not want to sell yourself short and end up with less compensation than you are entitled to because you didn’t have the time to spend fighting for what you truly deserve.
