Do you need an attorney?

It’s certainly possible for an injured person to handle their own personal injury claim without the help of an experienced attorney. However, there is no question that risks are involved. Negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company, is most likely going to be difficult. Especially if there is a question about who is liable for a crash.

Indeed, the insurance company may be obligated to compensate your losses, but without the expert guidance of an attorney how will you truly know how much your claim is worth? You can take their word for it, or you can put your trust in a competent attorney who has handled thousands of cases. Johnson Attorneys Group wants you to know your legal rights and get everything you are entitled to. Call us for a free consultation with no obligation at 800-235-6801.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
