Does Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney Get You a Larger Settlement?

Does Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney Get You a Larger Settlement?

A person who is injured and being offered a settlement from an insurance company will typically wonder: Does hiring a personal injury attorney get a larger settlement? The research is clear that, on average, a person who hires a personal injury attorney immediately after their accident will receive a settlement that is 300% higher than a person who does not hire an attorney.

Not convinced? Keep reading to learn how a personal injury attorney can help you get the settlement you deserve. Then contact Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707 for a free legal consultation.

Your Personal Injury Attorney is on Your Side: The Insurance Company is Not

One of the most important things to remember is that the insurance company, no matter who they are, is not on your side. They may be nice, considerate, and claim they want to help close the case as quickly as possible but the truth is that the insurance adjuster works for the insurance company and the insurance company has a specific job: To make money. That is it.

On the other hand, a personal injury attorney is on your side. It is true that we are not doing this out of the goodness of our hearts either, but keep in mind that if we take your case it will be on a contingency basis. This means that if we do not win your case then we do not get paid. When we do win your case, we will receive a percentage of the settlement. What does this mean for you? It means that our goals are exactly the same as yours: Getting the highest possible settlement for your case.

Your Personal Injury Knows the Law and the Facts of Your Injuries

The truth is that unless you are both a legal and medical expert, you may not know what the long-term costs of your injuries will be. For example, if you suffer a brain injury, it is not enough to be compensated for the immediate medical costs. What about future care? What about future missed wages when you have to attend medical treatment? What about the potential for long-term issues that can prevent you from working 20 years from now?

Your personal injury attorney does more than add up your past medical costs and tack on extra for pain and suffering. We work closely with your doctor and other medical experts as needed. We base our requests on the long-term costs you are likely to incur. If you have questions or need additional help we strongly recommend you contact Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707. We are happy to provide a free legal consultation so you know what your options are.
