At What Point Should You Decide To Hire a Lawyer?

Accidents can result in physical, mental, and emotional injuries that could disrupt your life. If you’ve suffered injuries from auto accidents, defective products, or nursing home abuse, seek assistance at Longo Biggs Injury Law, LLC. Here are some circumstances you can decide to hire a personal injury lawyer:

There Are Significant Injuries or Permanent Disability

If your injuries are severe or have resulted in a permanent disability, consult a lawyer for help. A disabling condition from defective products or car accidents can mean taking time off work, leading to loss of income. Due to your injuries or impairment, medical expenses could pile up.

A personal injury lawyer in our firm can help you seek compensation from the at-fault party. Our lawyers can represent you in court and negotiate your settlement with an insurance company. They can also help you recover damages for loss of income and pain and suffering.

Liability is Disputed

As an accident victim, proving another party’s negligence or errors contributed to your injuries can help you recover your compensation. Call a personal injury lawyer immediately if there is a disagreement over who is liable for the accident or if several parties are involved. At Longo Biggs Injury Law, LLC, we can gather evidence such as photographs, witness statements, surveillance footage, and medical records to build a strong case on your behalf.

An attorney can also consult with experts such as accident reconstruction specialists, medical professionals, or engineers. These professionals can provide opinions and testimony to support your claim and establish liability. Our lawyers can also offer valuable insight into who is liable in a personal injury case.

Insurance Company Denies Your Claim

The insurance company can deny your claim in cases where liability is unclear or disputed, such as in a car crash. If you don’t present sufficient evidence to support your claim, the insurance company can also reject your claim. Failure to report in a timely manner can result in denial.

We can review the denial letter from your insurance carrier to understand the reasons for the denial. After that, we review your insurance policy to check limitations and coverage, determining if the refusal is justified. Requesting an internal appeal or filing a lawsuit can be the next step.

The Statute of Limitations Is Approaching

Personal injury claims have specific time limits within which they must be filed, known as the statute of limitations. If the deadline is approaching, call a lawyer to avoid losing your right to pursue your claim. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases like slip and falls or car accidents can be several years.

Our team can assess the details of your case, calculate the remaining time available, and determine the necessary steps to meet the deadline. We handle different cases, including medical practice, truck wrecks, dog bites, nursing home abuse, and motorcycle crashes.
