The Importance of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
When you’ve been seriously injured in an accident, you may not know where to turn first. While you may need to focus on your healing, the mounting medical expenses from doctor visit copays and deductibles can cause you stress that can interfere with your ability to recover. Making a bad problem worse, you may be losing wages if you’re missing work while recovering, and you could be facing a lifelong reduction in your ability to earn as a result of your injuries. Don’t let the at-fault party escape responsibility for paying you what you deserve after an accident. After you’re hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence, contact the Indianapolis personal injury and accident lawyers at Lee & Fairman, LLP, for help with filing a claim for the money you deserve after an accident.
Insurance carriers are reluctant to pay out a claim’s true value
Even when it’s clear that the other party was at fault for your injuries in an Indiana slip-and-fall or car or truck accident, it doesn’t mean that you’ll always be able to settle with insurers for the full amount of your damages. Insurance companies know that accident victims are often inexperienced in negotiating claims and will take much less than they deserve out of a belief that they won’t be able to recover more. Our attorneys at Lee & Fairman have handled hundreds of claims on behalf of accident victims and can determine the true value of a plaintiff’s injury claim. We’ll stand up to big corporate insurers and seek a settlement that compensates you fully for your medical bills, property damage, lost work and pain and suffering, and will pursue claims in court where insurers refuse to settle for a reasonable amount.
Gathering evidence to prove the facts surrounding a claim, plus their value, takes experience
After you or your loved one is hurt in an accident, you need to focus on recovering, not on building a legal case against the responsible party. Hiring an attorney means that your claim for damages will be in capable and experienced hands, so that you can give your personal attention to your healing and health. Our lawyers know how to investigate accident claims and gather the evidence necessary, such as through accident reconstruction, witness interviews, and thoroughly combing the site of an accident for physical evidence. Don’t put your claim for compensation at risk by trying to handle it on your own. Get help from our dedicated and knowledgeable team of personal injury lawyers.
