Reasons People Typically Hire Personal Injury Lawyers in Queens
Many people erroneously believe that they do not need an attorney to assist with their case.
It is true that there is no law or rule requiring injury victims to hire an attorney if they want to pursue legal action.
However, there is no doubt that having competent legal counsel in your corner has extraordinary benefits that will help you get the maximum compensation possible.
An experienced Queens personal injury lawyer can help you:
- Objectively assess the strength of your legal claims;
- Evaluate the amount of monetary compensation you could be entitled to recover;
- Negotiate potential settlements with opposing parties and insurance providers;
- Gather evidence and identify potential witnesses to help support your claims;
- Draft court filings and appear at hearings and other appearances throughout the litigation process; and
- Prepare and take your case to trial when the opposition refuses to offer a fair settlement.
In short, an attorney can help provide you with peace of mind.
Do you know the tactics that insurance companies use to lower the amount of money they pay you?
Do you know how to present your evidence in a compelling way that makes the opposition decide that it is best to settle the case?
Can you use the threat of trial to get them to offer more money? And do you know how to take your case to trial if that becomes necessary?
If the answer to these questions is no, you will do significantly better with a knowledgeable attorney in your corner.
