Signs It’s Time to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

 

Hiring a personal injury lawyer at the right time can determine the success of your legal case. Over the last decade, the team of compassionate and professional lawyers at MacGillivray Law have represented victims of motor vehicle accidents, individuals injured at the fault of another, victims of slips, trips, and falls in the workplace, and more. Personal injuries are not always apparent after an accident. To ensure your safety and security, here are a few signs you should consider hiring legal representation:

Outstanding Bills and Fees. If you have experienced an accident, and as a result are struggling to pay bills for things like medical care or vehicle repair, you will benefit from legal help. Your personal or work insurance may not cover the full expenses, and a lawyer can file a suit against the other party to ensure you get back what is rightfully yours.

Serious Injury. After sustaining a serious injury, your health and wellbeing are of utmost importance. The next step is getting the compensation you deserve. If, following your injury, you are unable to readjust to day-to-day life, are missing work, or paying other costs associated with your injuries, hiring legal aid can get you the help you need.

Stubborn Insurance Companies. Are insurance companies giving you the turnaround? Are you having trouble filling out the paperwork to file an insurance claim? If you are struggling with any of these issues, a personal injury lawyer can help. Depending on your coverage, your insurer should, without hassle, cover some or all of the cost associated with an accident. Some insurance companies, however, go out of their way to ensure you get as little money as possible. If it is your first time making an insurance claim, the process can be confusing and overwhelming. Let our knowledgeable lawyers at MacGillivray Law help you get the compensation you deserve.

Contact from Insurance Companies. If you are being contacted by insurance companies, the first thing you should do is hire a lawyer. For the most part, insurance companies want you to settle for much less than what you are owed.  If you are being pressured or threatened by insurance companies, legal representation will ensure your interests are properly represented.

A Death Has Occurred. If a death has occurred as a result of an accident, our personal injury lawyers at MacGillivray Law can help. Whether you need to file a wrongful death claim, contact and negotiate with insurance companies, or question law enforcement, we have the resources to give you the protection you need.
