Get a Lawyer for Your Injury Claim
A common misperception that an injured person has after an injury is that they can go it alone. An injured person may believe that they do not need a lawyer to represent them or they can wait a while to see how the situation progresses before hiring a lawyer. An injured person should keep in mind that in many personal injury situations there are very short time deadlines for providing appropriate notices. Common examples include notice to government agencies and in certain fact situations notice regarding uninsured motorist coverage. A person unfamiliar with the legal system would not be familiar with providing these notices and would be unaware how the notice should be drafted and delivered.
A personal injury case that can seem at the outset to be straightforward can very soon turn complex. That is why at Herrick & Hart we strongly recommend that you do not go it alone. In a personal injury case, a contingency fee agreement is typically offered to the injured person. That allows the injured person to continue to treat for their injuries without having to worry about how they are going to pay their lawyer. If you have been injured due to the fault of another, take time to make the informed choice and consider contacting Herrick & Hart. We have been helping the injured for over 65 years.
