LOS ANGELES, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- If you've been injured in an auto accident or any accident for which you were not at fault, hiring a personal injury attorney with experience and background such as Cameron Yadidi Brock, Attorney at Law, can help you receive a fair settlement from insurance companies. Without the help of his expertise, or any personal injury attorney, you run the possibility of being taken advantage of by large corporations. Cameron Yadidi Brock encourages injured individuals to check out the DMV's three biggest reasons for hiring a personal injury attorney before they commit to any lawyer:
Personal injury laws vary by state, and individual situation. Unless an individual is a law student or personal injury professional, they are likely unfamiliar with all the laws pertaining to personal injury claims. Most Los Angeles residents probably do not know what they are legally entitled to, and could therefore be taken advantage of by an insurance adjuster. Of course they can always look up the personal injury laws in their state, but a personal injury professional can help interpret and apply those laws to an individual's particular case. For this reason, it is advisable to hire an attorney that specializes in personal injury claims and has extensive experience representing injured persons.
Having knowledge of personal injury laws is imperative to receiving fair compensation from an insurance company. Because insurance companies can profit by undercompensating injured persons, many companies will automatically offer a lower settlement to persons not working with a personal injury attorney. For this reason, many people opt to hire personal injury lawyers even before they have been offered a settlement.
Still, many others only hire a personal injury attorney when they seek to dispute a claim. For example, if an individual has been offered a personal injury settlement they believe is unfair, a personal injury attorney can dispute this settlement in a court of law. The majority of personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they take a percentage―typically one-third to 40%―of the final settlement amount. In addition to the contingency fee, you could be liable for court fees and related expenses. Be sure to inquire about all fees and expenses prior to hiring a personal injury attorney.
