Why Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer is the Right Move After an Accident

Being in a motor vehicle accident can be a traumatic and overwhelming experience. You may find yourself with financial losses and physical pain due to another driver's negligence or recklessness, and you're not sure where to turn. That's why, after being hurt in an accident, it might be time for you to hire a personal injury lawyer.

Here are three reasons why hiring an attorney could benefit you after an auto accident

#1 Experience with the Insurance Companies

When you've been injured in a car accident, you'll likely need to file a claim with your own insurance company as well as the at-fault driver's insurance company. Working with insurance companies can often be tricky; they may try to trick you into admitting fault or accepting a settlement that doesn't reflect your true damages. A personal injury lawyer has experience dealing with insurance companies and knows how to protect your rights when negotiating for the best possible settlement offer.

These are some of the largest insurance companies in the United States, especially Florida, New Jersey, & New York.

* State Farm

* Allstate

* Geico

* Farmers Insurance

* Liberty Mutual

Here at The Sheldrick Law Firm, we negotiate with majority of these insurance companies just about every month. So don't worry if you are unsure how to proceed when it comes to negotiating with the insurance companies, hire our firm and we will lead the way.

#2 Knowledge of the Legal System

Personal injury lawyers understand the complexities of navigating through the legal system, from filing paperwork correctly to appearing in court if necessary. Your attorney will know which evidence is needed to prove that someone else was at fault for your injuries and will help ensure that all deadlines are met so that your case isn't dismissed due to technicalities. An experienced attorney is also familiar with your local Florida laws related to auto accidents and can use this knowledge to build your case. There are many statutes in the legal system that may leave a door open for you to make a claim for compensation regarding your injuries, and only an attorney well-versed in the law will know how to properly take advantage of these opportunities.

#3 Maximizing Your Settlement Offer

Your injury lawyer (Kayla Sheldrick) will fight hard for every penny of compensation that you deserve following an auto accident; she will not let insurance companies get away with the common practice tactics such as lowballing settlement offers or denying claims based on minor details. Ms. Shedrick and her firm will work diligently on your behalf to help maximize the amount of money that you receive from both your insurer as well as the negligent driver's insurer. In addition, if it becomes necessary to take legal action against an individual or business entity, your attorney can handle all aspects of litigation on your behalf—from preparing documents & filing paperwork up through trial if necessary —so that you don't have to worry about any part of the process.

If you've been injured in an auto accident, hiring a personal injury lawyer like Kayla Sheldrick should be one of your first steps toward obtaining justice and getting back on track financially following such an event. An experienced attorney will have knowledge about local laws related to car accidents, know how to negotiate with insurance companies for maximum compensation, and understand what evidence is needed for someone else’s negligence to be proven legally responsible for causing injuries. By giving yourself access to skilled legal representation, such as The Sheldrick Law Firm, you can focus on recovering physically while knowing that we have your best interest in mind when it comes time for dealing with insurers and seeking justice according to the law.

We believe that it is in your best interest to hire a lawyer after being hurt and/or injured in an automobile accident that was not your fault.

Not everybody can afford any lawyer nor do most people know how to go about doing so. Here at The Sheldrick Law Firm we want to make it possible so that any accident victim has the fair opportunity to seek justice for their injuries and/or suffering.
