Do Not Go It Alone
After a serious accident, many people are tempted to save a buck and try to handle their own legal counsel. Others try to skimp by getting the cheapest lawyer they can find. These are both terrible ideas, as there is a lot at stake in personal injury litigation, and it is easy to go wrong and hurt your own changes to recover full damages.
At The Herman Firm, in Walnut Creek, California, we know that there are many benefits to working with an experienced attorney for your personal injury claim. Our attorney, Michael D. Herman, is here to answer any questions you have throughout your case.
The Benefits Of Working With An Experienced Lawyer
A skilled and experienced personal injury lawyer will:
- Protect your rights: Working with an experienced attorney can ensure that you do not make any critical mistakes that could jeopardize your rights. A common mistake is to accept the insurance company’s settlement offer, leaving a lot of potential money on the table. Other mistakes include how to communicate with the insurance company about your injuries, various medical decisions, even social media presence. All of these things, if not handled properly, could hurt your case. A good attorney will help you protect your rights.
- Help you understand the process: The legal process in bringing a personal injury claim is complicated. It is easy to make mistakes along the way and hurt your own case without knowing it. Without having been trained or experienced in the legal process, you simply don’t know what to expect. Let our attorney help you through your case.
- Speed things up: When you work a case on your own, you have to do research to learn what to do in every step of the process. You need to learn how the law works, what previous cases suggest for certain areas of law, how the procedures work and a host of other things. These can take a long time and a lot of energy. Let the professional handle it. In addition to nearly a decade of legal experience and training, attorney Michael D. Herman has handled a lot of personal injury cases, so he knows the laws, the procedures and what to expect.
- Get you the money you deserve: This is the primary point of calling a lawyer after you’ve been hurt. You want to be compensated. The injuries you suffered were someone else’s fault, and you want that person to pay for it. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you do that.
These are just a few of the critical benefits of working with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
