Most people are still unaware of how important it is to hire and/or consult with a personal injury attorney right after an accident. Here at Silverthorne Attorneys, we can tell you that it is absolutely crucial to hiring an attorney after your accident. A bodily injury attorney can help you retrieve a settlement that you need in order to heal from any injuries that were caused by your accident.
The Importance of Hiring the Right Personal Injury Attorney
One of our most recent cases involved our client being injured in an accident involving a semi-truck. Our client was sitting in his car that was parked in front of a driveway when the car he was sitting in was struck by the truck. The collision caused an immediate onset of pain in his back.
He had contacted a lawyer prior to retaining a personal injury lawyer at Silverthorne Attorneys and unfortunately they did some damage to his case. Luckily, a bodily injury attorney in our office was able to settle the case at approximately 16 times the pre-trial offer. The importance of having a dedicated personal injury attorney who will fight for you is critical to getting the kind of settlement you deserve for the injuries you sustain.
Why it is Critical to Use a Personal Injury Lawyer
Another recent case involved with our client being hit from behind while at a stop light. He blacked out due to the collision and afterwards he suffered from dizziness followed immediately with neck pain. He continued to suffer from neck pain and numbness that went down his arm. When he came to our firm, he was unable to enjoy his normal everyday activities. A Silvethorne Attorneys bodily injury lawyer was able to open the policy, which this forced the insurance company to settle for three-times the policy limit. We were even able to get a well renowned surgeon to sign a lien; which is a very rare occurrence in certain cases involving surgeons.
The Insurance Will Likely Place You at Fault without an Attorney
We have seen it time and time again. People who do not retain the services of a personal injury attorney are placed at fault after an accident. This happens a lot more than most people realize. In one particular case, our client, who was involved in a bike accident, was originally placed at fault because he had not retained the services of a personal injury attorney in our firm. After he came to us, we were able to get him the settlement he needed for the injuries that he sustained in his accident.
Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney will Save you Time and Money
In a case involving a client who suffered from a brain injury, our client came to us 44 days before the expiration date to make a claim. The insurance company only offered her $1250 to settle. After retaining a bodily injury attorney at Silverthorne Attorneys, we were able to settle the case for the policy limit – which was exponentially greater than the insurance companies original offer.
It is so important to hire a personal injury attorney after your accident. We can help you get the settlement you deserve and we will not only fight against unfair settlements, but we will fight the insurance companies when they are taking advantage of you.
