When Should You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you are injured in an accident at no fault of your own, it can be hard to know what next steps to take. You are already dealing with the injury, medical stress, financial stress, and emotional struggles that come with the accident. The last thing that may come to mind is hiring a personal injury lawyer. However, contacting and hiring a personal injury lawyer is one of the first steps you should take if you have been injured. 


What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you are in an accident such as a car accident that is not your fault, if you slip and fall on someone else’s property, are involved in an oil field injury, nursing home abuse, or if you were injured due to the negligence of a corporation, a personal injury lawyer can help. Essentially, a personal injury lawyer can help you handle the claims process, help you be made whole again, and can discourage the offending party from making the same mistakes again. 

Personal injury lawyers are able to do this due to their expertise in tort law. Tort law is a specific kind of litigation that deals with civil offenses rather than criminal ones. A personal injury lawyer can navigate the ins and outs of tort law, gather evidence, create a case for you, and more. As you can imagine, this will ensure you have what you need to be made whole again. 

The stakes for hiring the right personal injury lawyer could not be higher. With your livelihood on the line, you want to work with someone you can trust. 


Finerty Law

Finerty Law has been trusted by Oklahomans for over 30 years. While insurance companies primarily look to maximize their own profits, we work our cases with you in mind. We care about our clients and will always work to make sure you are put first and taken care of. Why work with someone else when you can work with someone you trust?

When you are in an accident, you are probably worried about what might happen. The thoughts of losing wages and not being able to pay your bills or messing up your application may cross your mind. Why not get some aid in the process to make sure everything is done right? 


When to Call a Lawyer

Put simply, you should hire a personal injury lawyer whenever you are involved in an accident that is not your fault and that brings bodily or mental harm. While it may be tempting to handle your own claim, a personal injury lawyer can net you more than three times the compensation that you may have gotten handling your own claim. When faced with medical bills and other damages, this is significant. A personal injury lawyer can make the difference between dealing with the fallout of an accident for years to come or starting to get your life back. 

Your injury does not have to be a visible injury like a broken arm or leg. Many people involved in accidents can struggle with mental health in the aftermath of an accident, which is not as visible as bruises or a broken bone. Additionally, accidents can cause nerve damage that can lead to headaches that affect your day to day life. Personal injury lawyers can help in these cases as well. If you suspect that your headaches or mental health struggles are the result of a recent accident you were involved in, contact Michael A. Finerty’s Law Office today.
