As a MA and Rhode Island personal injury lawyer, you’ll probably think I’m kidding when I say this…
So I’m just gonna say it:
You don’t always need a personal injury attorney.
It’s true though. If the injuries are minimal, then hiring a Massachusetts or Rhode Island personal injury attorney may actually leave significantly less money for you if your case is settled.
And truth be told, cases with minor injury may take away from the more significant cases that we handle at our law firm. Cases with minimal if any, personal injury are not the kinds of cases we handle.
The Kinds of MA and Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyer Cases We Handle
However, if you’ve suffered a significant injury, then our firm is more than willing to help you.
If it’s just a few bumps and bruises, then you don’t need us in most cases.
But if you do need us, then buckle up…because the insurance companies don’t like to play nice. And although you may not have known it when you got injured, settling a personal injury claim is akin to going to war.
That’s because the large insurance companies have been influencing consumers in their advertising campaigns for years, portraying themselves as friendly and honest – think how friendly “Flo from Progressive” is or the cute little Geico gecko. They are funny. They are cute.
But don’t be deceived…they create this image so that you are more liable to take their piddly settlements and so juries are more liable to rule in their favor.
Hire a Mass-based or Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyer Who Knows Their Stuff
Arming yourself with a well-prepared and seasoned personal injury attorney allows you to not only put up a strong defense against the insurance companies, but also to go on the offensive to gain the upper hand in getting you a better settlement amount.
Far too often, many claimants make the mistake of trying to handle their personal injury case on their own. They quickly find that representing themselves in a personal injury law case can be one of the most confusing, stressful and time-consuming endeavors they’ve ever undertaken.
By hiring a personal injury attorney who can take care of all the details from getting you the medical care you need, to getting you a settlement amount from the insurance company that is fair and just, you immediately start playing on a level playing field. If you choose to go it alone, you’ll be at a distinct disadvantage.
And the numbers prove this too.
In a study done by the Insurance Research Council, it showed that accident victims who utilize personal injury lawyers to settle their claims receive on average, three and a half times more and settlement amounts then those who did not use any legal representation.
Yes, three and a half times more money than those who did not use a personal injury lawyer.
If THAT isn’t a good reason to speak with a personal injury attorney about your injury claim, then I’m not sure what is.
