3 Ways a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, workplace injury, hurt in a private or public place or as a result of a criminal act, it can be baffling to know which step to take next, right? Enter the personal injury lawyer. Personal injury lawyers can help demystify the claims process by handling everything from insurance companies to medical practitioners and examinations, as well as carry your claim from start to finish, so you can focus on recovery. Specifically speaking, how can Peninsula Personal Injury Lawyers help?
Advise you on your rights
Exactly as it sounds, our personal injury lawyers can offer advice to inform you exactly what your rights are according to your specific situation. All incidents are different. So, we will get to the bottom of what has occurred, and help ensure your insurer is doing the right thing by you. Making an insurance claim is no easy feat for anyone, so it helps if you know exactly where you stand, what your rights are and also have someone reassuring to speak to.
Provide access to appropriate medical assessments
In the unfortunate event you have to make an injury-related insurance claim, your insurer will send you off for a medical examination with a doctor of their choice. Clients often divulge to us that they are not happy with the results of this examination, and we find some doctors are a little too optimistic. Meaning, the outcome of the claim may not be accurate or deemed satisfactory by the client based on what the doctor has reported. Should you employ the services of a personal injury lawyer, however, our doctors tend to be a little more pessimistic about your recovery and will give you the benefit of the doubt. You can therefore be sure your claim is as accurate as can be and assessed appropriately.
Carry your claim
Aside from hefty up-front medical costs, one of the worst things about personal injury claims is dealing with insurers (if you’re an insurer reading this – no offence!). The long phone call wait times, getting a different staff member each time, having to explain yourself over and over and over… you know what it’s like.
To ease these burdens so you can focus on your recovery, we carry your claim from start to finish – it’s exactly as it sounds. We’ll take care of the medical costs (all of them – which often lie anywhere between $2,000 – $4,000), and we will directly liaise with your insurer so you don’t have to. We also won’t charge you a dime for our services. Yes, it is a relief, and no, not all lawyers actually offer this service. At Peninsula Personal Injury Lawyers, we do. At the settlement of your claim, we recover all the above costs from the insurer.
Here at Peninsula Personal Injury Lawyers, we have the experience and knowledge to negotiate with insurers. We can also provide you with informed strategic advice to ensure you get what you are entitled to out of your claim.
