How Failing to Seek Legal Help Can Harm Your Lake Havasu Personal Injury Case
If you were injured in a Lake Havasu personal injury accident, whether that incident happened in a car crash or another way, and you have yet to seek legal help with your claim, you could be jeopardizing your rights and your ability to get the compensation you deserve. Many people believe that the insurance company will take care of everything that is needed to help them recover, including repairs to their vehicle (if applicable), injuries, medical bills, and other bills that cannot be paid during the recovery period due to lack of wage earnings. However, this isn’t always the case, and it’s critical to seek out professional help in order to ensure that you are taken care of properly by the at-fault party and their insurance company. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should seek legal help after an accident.
- A lawyer can help ensure that your case is filed within the statute of limitations so that you don’t lose your right to seek recompense. Most personal injury accidents, but not all, have a statute of limitations that is two years in Arizona. Some have shorter timeframes, depending on the circumstances. If you are working your case alone, it could take you longer than you have on this timeline to gather the evidence and file your claim, leaving you without legal standing.
- An attorney will gather evidence and put together your claim for you so that you can focus on getting better. Imagine trying to recover from a broken leg and a broken arm, or a traumatic brain injury while gathering evidence and building a case against the person who caused your injuries. It isn’t a pretty picture. A skilled personal injury attorney will let you rest and recover while performing all the hard work in your place. And that’s the way it should be.
- Your attorney will take the lead and will protect you from being bullied and from being coerced into saying things that make it look like the accident was your fault. The truth is that insurance companies and lawyers on the other side, and sometimes even your own insurance company, are only out to settle the case fast and cheap. Without an attorney protecting your interests, you may find yourself in a precarious position.
