Updated on October 20, 2014

It Could Happen to You

Each and every year, millions of Americans all over the country are seriously injured in accidents that result in a life changing disability, or a change of life for their families. Unfortunately, you can't turn back the clock but you can make sure that you and your family members are taken care of going forward.

Hiring a personal injury lawyer can be a difficult task but the benefits can be life-altering.

#1 Better Compensation

Did you know that insurance companies profit from giving the injured parties less than they deserve? Many insurance companies will under compensate you if you're not working with a personal injury attorney.

By hiring a personal injury attorney, you are increasing your odds of getting a fair settlement from the insurance company.

For this reason, I advise you to hire a lawyer whose strong suit is personal injury before filling out your accident claim.

#2 Years of Knowledge and Expertise

Understanding all laws pertaining to personal injury law is like knowing every single bone, organ, and muscle in your body.

Personal injury laws are different within each state (and every situation). If you are a law student you might be familiar with these laws but chances of knowing everything are slim.

It's a David vs Goliath situation. You're David and the insurance companies are Goliath. If you don't have a Goliath on your side (PI lawyer), chances are you'll miss out on items you're legally entitled.

Though there are many instances when you could get away without hiring a professional (like changing your car's oil or repairing broken sprinkler heads), when it comes to your (and your family's) personal health and well-being, I know I wouldn't want to leave that up to my ability to learn everything I needed to know and face Goliath in 3 weeks. Talk about stressful!

#3 Fair Settlements

I recently watched a fascinating film called Flash of Genius, starring Greg Kinnear. This film accurately tells the story of Robert Kearns (an inventor) who takes the Detroit automakers to court because he felt they stole his idea of the intermittent windshield wiper. (Sounds like a boring film, but was pretty interesting).

-- MOVIE SPOILER --

While Robert Kearns does win the case at the end of the movie, it wasn't without consequence. He had spent 7 years of his life learning how laws work, spending money on courts, losing his wife to another man, losing his kids (for a while), becoming depressed to the point of extreme anxiety, and much more.

While he did end up winning the settlement of 10 million dollars, these types of incidents are rare.

Avoid losing in court because you thought you could do better than professionals. Hire a personal injury lawyer today. They have the knowledge and expertise to save you time and energy fighting for your cause.

Call a Personal Injury Lawyer if...

If you or anyone you know has suffered from the following conditions, I recommend contacting a Personal Injury Lawyer.

1. Herniated discs
2. Slipped discs
3. Any sort of fracture (broken bone)
4. Any sort of internal injury such as internal bleeding, bruised organ(s), collapsed or punctured organ(s), etc.
5. Brain injury (traumatic brain injury or TBI)
6. A serious ligament tear such as a torn rotator cuff, torn ACL, torn MCL
7. Shoulder or Hip or Knee Dislocation
8. Anything that requires surgery
9. Anything that requires at least an overnight stay in the hospital
10. Death

Most calls take only a few minutes but have lasting benefits. So if you've been in a serious car or truck accident, call this number today to get immediate help.

NOTE: Whiplash and/or muscle spasms, otherwise known as soft-tissue injuries, do not constitute serious injuries.
