If you have been injured due to an automobile accident, slip and fall, defective product, or any other type of injury, a personal injury attorney can help you navigate the extremely adversarial situations you will face with the 3rd party insurance, and very likely your own insurance. Make no mistake, even your own insurance is not incentivized to assist you. As such, at Vaksman Khalfin, we always advise our clients to let us handle all communications on our client’s behalf.
Additionally, a personal injury law firm will help coordinate your medical treatment. We have found that most clients tend to undertreat their injuries, and this is a huge disservice to you, both medically and legally. The fact is that you will only have one settlement for your matter, and if you later realize that you are still in pain, you won’t be able to re-negotiate at a later time. Our firm will thus help ensure that you get the treatment you require, while maximizing benefits from all the parties involved.
Finally, after you have completed treatment, we are relentless in seeking full compensation for your injuries. In sum, the answer to why you need an attorney for a personal injury matter, is that, in our experience, unrepresented clients are likely to get less treatment, and less financial recovery.
