Personal Injury Claims: When Should You Hire a Lawyer?

If you’re wondering whether or not you should hire a lawyer, the answer is probably yes. Whether you’re thinking about getting one because of how severe your injuries are, because the insurance company is giving you the run around or something else, hiring an experienced attorney is your best chance at maximizing your compensation. At Proner & Proner, we have more than five decades worth of experience handling the most complex personal injury claims. We’ve recovered millions for our clients. If any of the situations below apply to you, give Proner & Proner a call today for a free consultation. 

You Have Severe Injuries

The severity of your injuries are based on your recovery time, the types of injuries you sustained and the medical bills and expenses that come along with it. The most common types of serious personal injuries include:

Long-Term Injuries and Permanent Disability

If you suffered a long-term injury that significantly impairs your ability to perform your normal activities for a year or more, a lawyer is your best option to make sure you get the most out of your claim. Such life-changing injuries can have a detrimental effect on your ability to work, enjoy life and participate in and complete tasks or activities that you once enjoyed. You deserve to be compensated for that pain and suffering. 

Medical Malpractice

If you suspect that you were a victim of medical malpractice, you need to consult with an attorney right away. Medical malpractice claims are complex. In order to move forward with a claim, it must first be proven that the doctor or medical professional breached the medical standard of care. Simply put, this means that it must be proven that your physician acted in a way that another reasonable physician would not have under similar circumstances. Some of the most common types of medical malpractice claims our firm handles include:

The Insurance Company Doesn’t Want to Pay

While people get insurance so they’re covered in the event of an accident, insurance companies will always be focused on their bottom line. If the insurance company is refusing to offer you a fair settlement for your injuries, or refusing to pay altogether, it’s important to get a personal injury attorney involved. 

As you can see, there are several situations in which it’s imperative to hire a personal injury attorney. However, any injury is always worth the consultation. If you were hurt through someone else’s negligent behavior, you’re entitled to compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering and missed time off work. At Proner & Proner, we will get you the justice you deserve.
