You hire a personal injury lawyer after an accident for the same reason that you hire an expert/professional to handle anything.
You need us, just like you need a mechanic when your motorcycle won't run and you can't figure it out. This is what we do every single day, we're here to help. This is what we have dedicated our lives to and are experts in.
A qualified attorney is crucial to ensuring you pursue your claim in the most effective way possible, and to ensure no mistakes are made (see video above). Hiring a proven and trusted personal injury or wrongful death attorney is the best way to ensure you get the best representation for your interests. Specifically, we're your best chance to get the compensation you are entitled to.
That classic line from the Miranda Rights, "anything you say can and will be used against you..." is especially true when talking to insurance adjusters after a crash.
So is the other part: "You have the right to an attorney."
If you have follow-up questions, send 'em our way.
