Do I Need an Attorney?

Do I Need an Attorney?

If you are asking this question after suffering personal injuries, you are not alone. This is one of the most commonly asked questions among injured victims. Following an accident, the insurance adjuster may seem like he or she has your best interests at heart, assuring you that he or she will “take care of you.” However, it is important to note that an adjuster does not owe you the legal or ethical duties that a personal injury attorney would owe you. Thus, if you have been injured due to someone else’s wrongdoing, such as a car accident, on the job injury, negligent security, or medical malpractice, you can benefit by hiring a lawyer whose sole focus is your interests and legal rights.

Why Hire an Attorney for a Car Accident or Personal Injury Claim?

Each state has its own negligence and personal injury laws. Over time, these laws have become highly specialized, and they are subject to change and interpretation at any time, as courts continue to analyze them on a daily basis. In order to assert a successful legal claim, you must abide by strict time deadlines and statutes of limitation. You must also satisfy the applicable burden of proof, which can be done by identifying, gathering, and obtaining relevant evidence. Failing to abide by technical legal requirements or missing critical evidence can negatively affect your case. Depending on the circumstances, you could be completely barred from asserting your claim if you do not follow legal requirements, meaning you could recover nothing. By not having dedicated and knowledgeable counsel, you risk not complying with legal requirements that could result in your case being dismissed.

How a Lawyer Can Help You

Your attorney should be your eyes, ears, and voice throughout the legal process. Even though you may be on the path to recovery, the legal process does not pause until you get better. Instead, the clock begins ticking immediately. The insurance company will utilize their resources to begin investigating the situation and building their case, so why shouldn’t you?

Here are steps our personal injury lawyers can take to protect the legal rights of accident victims throughout Memphis and other parts of the South:

  • Obtain the police report
  • Request photographs and video footage taken by police officers at the scene
  • Order medical records
  • Consult with experts
  • Interview witnesses
  • File a lawsuit in the appropriate jurisdiction
  • Protect the statute of limitation
  • Investigate all potential sources of insurance, including liability, uninsured/underinsured motorist, and medical payments coverage
  • Identify all insurance policies that may cover you, including those belonging to a household member, vehicle owner, company policy, or other entity
  • Assess the value of your case
