When to Get an Attorney in McAllen
Not sure if you need an attorney after an accident? It's not always an easy choice. However, there are a few signs that it might be time to explore your legal options:
- You were injured in an accident, by a product, or through an act of negligence -- If your injuries are serious, you could be facing a long road to recovery. You might not be able to work for a long time, if at all. You could have high hospital bills, physical therapy expenses, and ongoing medical costs. Your current and future earnings power could be adversely affected, making it even harder to cover these expenses and virtually impossible to maintain your standard of living. In addition to financial losses, pain and suffering and other non-economic damages may affect you. Getting an attorney involved is crucial in holding those at fault accountable. The sooner you do so, the better.
- Someone you love died or was seriously injured due to an accident, product defect, or negligence -- As the spouse, parent, adult child, or loved one of someone who was wrongfully killed or seriously injured, you may need an attorney. Again, medical expenses and lost earnings are common damages sought by plaintiffs. In the case of wrongful deaths, you'll also have funeral expenses to cover as well as lost companionship and other non-economic damages. An attorney can help you to seek justice on behalf of your loved one.
- You're uncomfortable with the insurance company -- Whether the claim has been denied, a low settlement offer has been made, or the entire process leaves you feeling uncomfortable, it might be advisable to get your own attorney. Having your own attorney working on your behalf ensures that your best interests are being looked after and fought for. Don't let the insurance company set the terms, get involved in the process by retaining an attorney.
