Many automobile accident cases are referred to us by medical providers, like chiropractors, because their patients ask for a referral to personal injury attorney. Often times, the patient’s accident occurred days, weeks or months ago. For some reason, injured accident victims in Carroll County are shy about hiring a personal injury attorney.
Our office always asks potential clients: Why did you wait so long to speak with an attorney?
Recently, a new client told us that they waited to speak with an attorney because in their opinion attorneys are “sue happy” and this client didn’t want to sue anyone.
Do you have to file a lawsuit if you hire a personal injury attorney?
Hiring a personal injury attorney does not mean that you are filing a lawsuit. Injury attorneys can help you in a number of ways.
For example, in an automobile accident case, a personal injury attorney will help you organize your case so that you claim every bill and loss that you suffered. Additionally, your attorney will request all your medical bills and records and lost wages. The most helpful part of having an attorney is when dealing with the insurance adjusters. If you have an attorney, then the insurance companies won’t bother you and will call your lawyer.
You need to focus on your injuries and treatment, not answering the questions of an insurance adjuster.
Just because you hired a personal injury attorney doesn’t mean you are filing a lawsuit. Are lawyers “sue happy?” Perhaps, but in most cases, it is to make sure their clients are being treated fairly by the insurance companies. Sometimes, that requires going to court.
Remember, a car accident attorney can be helpful in a number of ways. Consider speaking with our office about your case, before deciding that attorneys just file frivolous lawsuits.
