While doing some cleaning out last weekend, we came across this old Peanuts book titled: Security is a Thumb and a Blanket. 2020 has certainly caused many of us to long for more security whether it be in our economic situation, our health, our relationships, etc. If only a thumb and a blanket could keep us from danger or threat. As we flipped through the book, we saw the above photo. It is a great reminder of the importance of choosing the right team. If you think you or a loved one might need an injury attorney, read on to learn more about how to pick the right one for you – even if it is not us.
Let me begin by saying that if you have been seriously injured in an accident, hiring a lawyer is in both your short-term and long-term best interest. In the short run, you can hand-off all of the responsibilities, work and hassle of pursuing your case to someone who is experienced in doing all of the things necessary to protect your rights. For just a basic overview of what you will need to do if you go it alone, check out this FAQ page. And don’t forget, we handle your case on a contingency basis so it costs you nothing out-of-pocket to have us do the work for you. Next, in the long-run, your recovery will likely be significantly greater. In fact, the Insurance Research Council studied this issue and found that injury victims who hire a lawyer typically receive 3 ½ times more in compensation than those who try to handle the case themselves.
When hiring any lawyer, you need to do your homework. We have created a checklist of things you should ask so that you can make an informed decision. You can find the checklist here. We believe our team of award-winning lawyers, full-time nurse paralegal and professional staff will exceed your expectations.
