Why Should I Hire a Personal Liability Attorney?

When an individual faces the prospect of representing themselves in a court proceeding, it can be difficult to determine when the right time is to call a personal liability attorney. It’s important to understand that when it comes to defending your rights, the earlier you have experienced representation, the better.

Essentially, this person is an advocate – someone in your corner who knows the law and is willing to fight for your rights. Below are a few specific instances wherein a personal liability attorney can help you.

DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN INSURANCE CARRIERS

If you’re involved in an accident, don’t fool yourself into thinking there won’t be a time when you need to speak to either your insurance company or the other party’s insurance company.

In fact, there will probably be numerous conversations you need to have. One of the best reasons for having a personal liability attorney is that they can speak on your behalf and ensure that your rights are protected.

TIME CAN RUN OUT

If you’re unfamiliar with legal proceedings (as many are), you might not be aware that in certain situations, there is a statute of limitations. After a certain period of time, you can no longer make a claim that will be permissible in court. A personal liability attorney, on the other hand, is aware of these limitations, and can get your case moving forward within the proper timeframe.

INSURANCE COMPANIES HAVE EXPERTS

One of the biggest reasons that individuals hire representation, especially for car accident cases, is because they’ll be going up against experts. These opposing representatives of either the insurance company or the other person involved in the accident do this day in and day out, and they’ll do everything they can to discredit your claim.

SUPPORT STAFF

The legal process is complex and specialized. Even looking at a legal document can become overwhelming if you don’t have a background in law. A personal liability attorney, however, understands this process and can walk you through it beginning to end.

An attorney will also have support staff on hand such as an investigative team that they can use to back up your personal injury claim. They can help recreate accident scenarios, provide pertinent information to the attorney, get crime scene photos and more.
