During these harsh times, catastrophic injury victims are having a difficult time recognizing when their case warrants a personal injury law firm evaluation. Since insurance companies are denying claims like a prom queen at a dive bar, car accident victims are taking matters into their own hands and taking their cases to small claims court. Under some circumstances, this is the best thing to do; under most, it is the worst possible action one could take to receive compensation for their injuries. So how is one to know when they need an attorney? The answer differs on a case-by-case basis.
Personal Injury Cases with Minor Injuries
No accident victim wants to hear that their injuries are minor, but if you want to obtain fair compensation you will have to adhere to a thought process that is anything but just. Insurance adjusters are in the business of making money. They do not care that your life has been flipped upside down and that you will forever be scarred as a result of your accident. They prove this every time they limit insurance payouts. If they deny a claim and the injuries are relatively small, personal injuries attorneys will not pick up your case because it will cost too much for you to pay them. This has resulted in many victims with minor injuries to seek justice in small claims court, but many of them did not realize the extent of their injuries until it was too late.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my tenure writing articles such as these, it’s that settlements often depend on certain intangibles — critical facts and details that aren’t easily apparent to the average person (or to many attorneys, for that matter). And it’s on those very facts and details that a case may turn significantly. Sometimes, there are inconspicuous issues in a case that, once uncovered, can very suddenly and quite dramatically transform a personal injury settlement from the realm of the ordinary to the extraordinary. To unearth those nuggets, it takes relentless determination and a reliable base of knowledge and instincts. That extra gear is not always easy to define, but, more often than not, it does seem to accompany those who are willing to go the extra mile and put in the work.
