If you or a loved one were seriously injured by a negligent person or company, the answer to this question is almost always yes. Some people who wish to avoid paying legal fees attempt to handle their injury claim themselves; however, there are benefits to hiring professional legal representation, especially in cases involving serious injury and death.
For starters, one slight misstep or missed deadline in your lawsuit could cost you thousands and bring your case to an abrupt end. In addition, the negligent party will likely be defended by their own attorney or insurance company that intends to exploit any and all weaknesses in your case to get out of paying their fair share.
By hiring an attorney with the right experience and expertise, you can ensure that you have a knowledgeable legal advocate in your corner who will not only anticipate and intercept these weaknesses but also build a strong case that ensures you get the maximum compensation possible.
