When do I need to hire a Milwaukee personal injury lawyer?
Not every injury requires the assistance of a lawyer, and not every personal injury is eligible for reimbursement from someone. In addition, it’s not legally required that a victim hire a Milwaukee personal injury lawyer in order to file a claim or lawsuit. However, representing one’s self in court is rarely a good idea and is why even lawyers will usually hire an attorney. Let’s take a look at whether or not you may benefit from a personal injury lawyer.
Who was responsible for causing your injury?
If not, then you probably do not need a personal injury lawyer.
If someone else was negligent or caused your injury intentionally, you may benefit from working with a Milwaukee personal injury lawyer.
How serious is your injury?
If it is mild, did not require medical treatment, and will heal completely, then you probably do not need a personal injury lawyer.
If it required medical treatment, has or will cost you significant costs for treatment and/or lost wages, you may benefit from working with a personal injury lawyer Milwaukee WI residents hire from Hickey & Turim, S.C.
Has the at-fault party’s insurance company offered a fair settlement and paid it to you in a timely manner?
If yes, then you probably do not need a personal injury lawyer.
If their insurance company denied your claim or offered you a ridiculously low settlement amount or has significantly delayed paying you, you may benefit from working with a lawyer.
Are you filing a lawsuit against the at-fault party and/or their insurance company?
If you have not yet made that decision, you may not yet need a personal injury lawyer.
