Egan Explains: Do I Need a Lawyer for a Personal Injury Claim?

Picture this: You’re enjoying a weekend bike ride when a car door swings open, sending you sprawling onto the pavement. The pain is immediate, and fear sets in as you assess the damage – a broken arm and a concussion. Weeks pass and the medical bills start piling up, and the insurance company tries to minimize your claims. You may ask yourself, “Do I need a lawyer for a personal injury claim?”

Your Options After a Personal Injury

Following an accident, you have several paths you can take:

  • Handle the Claim Yourself: You can attempt to negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance company directly. However, insurance companies are great at minimizing payouts to their clients, and navigating legal jargon can be difficult.
  • Hire a Personal Injury Attorney: This is the most strategic option and the one that insurance companies hope you won’t take. A skilled attorney will handle all communication with the insurance company, fight for the compensation you deserve, and make sure your rights are protected throughout the process.
