If you have been injured in an accident, you may be dealing with a slew of expensive medical bills and an inability to work. In a perfect world, it would be easy to get the compensation you deserve for an accident caused by someone else. However, it is almost never this easy. There are many factors that go into a successful accident claim that the average person, who doesn’t have specialized legal knowledge, might not know. We are trained professionals who will deal with the insurance company and level the playing field. Insurance companies take advantage of this information, and actively work to find ways to diminish an injured person’s claim. In these situations, it is extremely important to have someone on your side who can protect you from these tactics and maximize the value of your recovery.
We’re here to offer you five reasons why it is absolutely critical to work with a personal injury lawyer after an accident. Here’s what Morici, Longo & Associates can do for you:
1. We Offer Support & Guidance Through the Legal Process
The law can be complicated, and the legal system is not intuitive. Missing a deadline or failing to fill out the correct paperwork can cause serious delays to your case. Not knowing what you’re entitled to, or how to effectively negotiate with an insurance company, can end up costing you a huge portion of the value of your recovery. The attorneys at our firm are familiar with local laws, procedures, and how to handle insurance companies, and know exactly what avenues to pursue in order to get you the most money possible.
2. We Have the Resources to Fully Investigate Your Claim
Successful personal injury claims hinge on proving another person’s negligence. Sometimes negligence is obvious, but other times it can be difficult to prove. A personal injury attorney is indispensable when it comes to investigating claims. We will launch a thorough analysis of your accident to uncover the facts and hold the negligent party responsible.. In many cases, industry experts are necessary to prove a case. In car accident cases, for example, accident reconstruction experts may be needed to help pinpoint the exact cause of a collision. Without access to these resources, it can be difficult to make a case for full compensation. MLA lawyers know how and when to utilize experts to build and strengthen cases.
3. We Protect Your Best Interests
A personal injury claim is not just about bringing a claim in court. Many of these cases involve insurance issues, particularly if you were in a car accident. It is important to remember, however, that insurance companies whose primary concern is their bottom line are not looking out for your best interests. Their focus is to make money, not pay it out.
While it may be tempting to accept an offer from your insurance company to hasten the end of your case, we absolutely advise that you speak with one of our attorneys before you agree to any settlement. This consultation is free. An attorney at our firm can review the facts of your case, help you understand an appropriate value, and negotiate a full and fair amount from your insurance company.
4. You Pay Nothing Unless We Win Your Case
Morici, Longo & Associates, handle injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means you will not owe any attorney's fees unless your lawyer secures compensation for you. And with complimentary consultations, there is absolutely no risk involved in speaking with a lawyer about your case.
5. We Level the Playing Field
