Yes. A trusted attorney will protect your interests in a way that your insurance company may not and there are uncertainties in each case that make this important. The insurance company knows the ins and outs of the personal injury claims process and will do everything in their power to limit payouts for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages related to your car accident.

In other words, you don’t know what you don’t know. That is why approaching a case strategically with strong legal counsel is needed to give you the best chance for maximizing recovery. The best way to protect your interests is to have a proven advocate fighting for your rights and looking out for you and your family only.

A Lawyer Can Help You Get The Care You Need After An Accident

One example of a personal injury lawyer’s value is their ability to provide guidance on how to most effectively seek the medical care you need after a crash. Insurance companies may view various types of medical treatment as questionable or “red flag” certain doctors as overpriced. They may create barriers for your treatment by referring you to specific therapy centers or other treatment resources that they’ve deemed to be friendlier to their bottom line.

An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to help inform you about things like this that can substantially affect your recovery.

The Insurance Companies Know You’re Better Off With A Lawyer

Allstate Insurance’s own website says “represented claims settle 2-3 times more than unrepresented claims.” The facts point to the importance of hiring an attorney who will pursue all avenues for securing the compensation you deserve.

Hiring An Attorney Doesn’t Force You To Go To Trial

Contrary to the episode of The Brady Bunch that features a personal injury trial, having an attorney does not mean you have to go to trial over your claim. In fact, about 90 percent of our claims are settled prior to going to trial. However, an experienced personal injury lawyer will be ready to make your case at trial if it becomes a necessary step in achieving a fair outcome for you and your family.

A Personal Injury Attorney Has Walked This Trail Before

Walking a trail through Wisconsin’s north woods can be beautiful during the day but downright frightening at night without a flashlight. The personal injury process is similar; trying to determine what your case is worth and whether you are getting the resources you deserve can be scary. You don’t want to lose your chance at making yourself whole. Who better to give you advice on the value of your claim than an attorney who has dedicated their career to making things right for car accident injury victims in Wisconsin.
