Aiken, SC – Attorneys at Braithewaite Timmerman, LLC recently explained to the public specific cases where people should hire a personal injury lawyer if they have suffered an injury.
When a person is injured in a car accident caused by someone else, they may mistakenly believe that their insurance company and the insurance for the other driver will handle everything. Unfortunately, this isn’t true.
The goal of all insurance companies is to make sure they keep their losses to a minimum. The insurance company for the at-fault driver wants to make sure they pay the very least amount of compensation that they possibly can. The at-fault driver’s policy will have a cap on it – meaning they will not pay any money over that amount.
Insurance companies will set a limit on how much they will pay to replace the injured person’s car, as well as how much they will pay for medical expenses. This is one of the main reasons why residents of the CSRA who have been injured in a car accident must find the best personal injury attorney.
The attorneys at Braithwaite Timmerman, LLC know how insurance companies work. Victims need more than the bare minimums covered by insurance. Victims need to be reimbursed for possible future medical care. They need to be compensated for pain and suffering. There is also the issue of lost wages while the victim recovers. Only an excellent personal injury attorney knows how to recover these losses.
Having a local firm represent the victim makes sense. Attorneys who have been living in the CRSA all their lives know the best way to proceed with particular cases. They know how local insurance defense attorneys operate. They know the judges.
It’s not just car accidents where victims need an experienced lawyer. Many times, the elderly are neglected or injured in nursing homes due to substandard care or abuse. This kind of injury is impossible for non-attorney to handle on their own. Other times a person might be injured at work, and the worker’s compensation insurance is not paying everything they should.
Medical malpractice and wrongful death are two more areas where victims must be sure to hire a personal injury attorney. It’s tough to prove medical malpractice. Victims need to have an experienced attorney who has done this kind of work before.
Hiring a good personal injury lawyer will assure victims that they are receiving the proper compensation that considers all of the parts of the victim’s life that have been adversely affected.
