Do I Need an Injury Attorney?

When You Need a Good Lawyer

When you've been injured in an accident, you may wonder if you really need an injury attorney. If your injuries were more than minor cuts and bruises, you should meet with an injury lawyer for a free consultation. The lawyer can outline potential types of applicable insurance coverage and the insurance claim process to help you decide.

The Limitations of Insurance in Accident Claims

There are several good reasons why you would benefit from having a lawyer on board. You may need an attorney because there are complex legal rules involved in your particular claim, or because the severity of your injuries may require that you receive compensation above the norm, or simply because an insurance company refuses to agree on a fair settlement.

Even when you're injured in a car accident that wasn't your fault, there is no guarantee that your medical bills will be paid by the other driver's insurance company or that you will receive the compensation you deserve. It's important to remember that insurance companies and their aggressive legal teams are proficient at minimizing settlement claims in bodily injury cases, thereby putting the average person at a disadvantage when they attempt to handle their claim on their own.

You should strongly consider hiring a Walla Walla personal injury attorney from Hess Law Office, PLLC if:

  • You suffered severe injuries
  • The at-fault driver was uninsured or under-insured
  • You are feeling pressured by the claims adjuster to agree to an unfair settlement
  • You are concerned that you are not fully compensated for your current and future losses
  • You suffered long-term or permanently disabling injuries

Remember, Insurance is Big Business

It's important to remember that insurance is big business and insurance companies are for-profit companies that are focused on their own bottom line. Injury victims generally have no idea what their claim is worth, nor how much they are entitled to receive, and in effect, they may blindly enter into a settlement agreement with the insurance company and accept a "low ball" settlement offer.
