Personal Injury Law and why you need legal counsel

Why Get A Personal Injury Lawyer & What to Bring to My Appointment

In the event of an accident, an important aspect to consider for your own peace of mind and comfort is a personal injury lawyer.  Whether it’s a sore back, broken bones or worse, an injury that occurs during an accident is something that can be better dealt with by using a personal injury lawyer.

Why should I consider getting a personal injury lawyer?

After an accident, it can be overwhelming to deal with both your insurance company as well as the other driver’s company.  It can also be frustrating to have to try and give a statement, whether it’s written or recorded when you are not entirely sure what to say or what not to say in terms of your injury and even assigning fault.  With the right lawyer at your side (or on the phone), you may find that you just telling your lawyer the events of the accident, and they’ll take care of the rest is much more manageable.

Even when an injury is minor, or seems to be minor, future problems can occur as a result.  So, even if it feels like you don’t “need to go through the hassle” of it, you may find that later you wished you had.  A personal injury lawyer can help determine the best approach to a settlement for you so that you won’t need to worry about it later on.

The last thing that you need right now is another thing to worry about, so allow a personal injury attorney to help take the weight off your shoulders and make sure that you are fairly represented at all stages of settlement.

How can they help?

A personal lawyer can help with a lot of things, but the biggest two pieces are that, you will know that there is someone in your corner that will do whatever it takes to make sure that you get what you deserve in compensation.  Second, a professional will know how to handle tricky questions and legal situations that you may not know how to handle in a comfortable or beneficial way.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

When you are looking to attend a consultation with a personal injury lawyer, you should consider bringing along all of the “evidence” that you can from the accident.  Photos, if possible, a rough account of what happened in detail (from your own point of view), and all of your insurance information as well as the other driver’s information.  If you still have a balance owing on your car, try to get that information to bring along, too.

While it may not be required, a personal injury lawyer is one of the best options to consider for the sake of your health (both short-term and long-term) as well as lifting worry and frustration from your shoulders and handing it to the professionals to make sure all ends well.  Valverde & Rowell can assist with your personal injury needs so contact us at (757) 422-8472.
