When Do You Need An Injury Attorney?

There are times, despite your best effort to settle your own personal injury case where you reach a point where you know that you are going to have the intervention of a Waukegan personal injury lawyer. You may have substantial injuries, there may be complications associated with your claim or the insurance company just refuses to make an offer which you consider to be acceptable.

There are a couple of good reasons why you may need to work with a personal injury lawyer:

   * The claim may be too large or complex for you to handle, you might start the process only then to realize that the complexities and legal technicalities are beyond your scope and ability.

It may be that the injuries you sustained in the accident are severe or disabling and you realize the value of the claim is far greater than what you could expect to recover.

Many people are simply not comfortable in becoming involved in issues which are out of their comfort zone. It may not be until you have started to process the claim that you realize you will be best served by a seasoned Waukegan personal injury lawyer.

   * There are numerous examples of people that have handled their cases admirably only to find out that the insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement offer. Personal injury attorneys can get you a far better settlement.

Insurance companies can be very difficult to work with; they are happy to claim their client is innocent and simply refuse to even discuss a settlement. They hope that you will give up; when you hire a Waukegan personal injury lawyer you are sending the message that you have no intention to do such thing.

In situations like this you must consult with a lawyer, only a knowledgeable lawyer is in a position to advise whether your claim is strong enough to pursue.

If you have been injured and the insurance company of the at-fault party is reluctant to settle then you will need a Waukegan personal injury lawyer to pursue the case on your behalf. You are invited to contact Shea Law Group. Follow us on our google+ page.
