Your Injury Claim: Not a DIY Project

by actuate | January 18th, 2016

If you think handling your own injury claim is a good idea, think again. Filing a strong injury claim can be a complicated process that is not a do-it-yourself project. Just one missed deadline or filing mistake can be the difference between getting the compensation you deserve and leaving a lot of money on the table. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, an experienced Norfolk personal injury attorney can help ensure nothing falls through the cracks.

Here are 3 reasons whey you should hire an attorney to handle your personal injury claim:

  1. Filing requirements—Filing an injury claim requires an in-depth knowledge of the process. The paperwork alone can be overwhelming, and then there are a number of filing deadlines that you must observe in order to have you claim considered. An experienced lawyer will process your paperwork and meet all deadlines on your behalf.
  2. Insurance company missteps—The insurance company loves do-it-yourselfers, because it makes their job so much easier. Do-it-yourselfers often make mistakes that the insurance company can take advantage of, potentially giving them everything they need to deny your claim all together.
  3. Ease of mind—If you’ve been injured, you need to focus your energy on one thing: getting better. An attorney can take the burden off your shoulders, representing your best interests while you focus on recovery.
