Potential clients wonder if they should hire a lawyer at the beginning of the case. Most should hire a Lawyer as soon as possible. The next step is finding the right lawyer to help you navigate a complex system that will be unfamiliar to you and your family.

Why Should I Hire a Lawyer Now

The reluctance to contact a lawyer is shared by many individuals. Many people don’t want to be the lawsuit type. In our experience, no one wants to be in the position to have to file a claim for their medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. However, by delaying your decision, you may hurt your ability to receive full compensation. There are three general reasons to hire a lawyer as soon as possible.

  • Responsibility

    When you broke the neighbor’s window playing in the yard, your parents made you take responsibility for your actions by paying for it, helping the neighbors with chores or doing more chores at home. This simple act by your parents made you more responsible and probably taught you a valuable lesson.

    Similarly, some injuries in real life are more than accidents. In some instances, you may not even know the cause. Would you be aware of a recalled drug carried an increased risk of medical complications? How long do I have to file a lawsuit? In these occasions, an experienced lawyer can assist you in answering these questions and finding the responsible party.

  • Best Evidence

    The circumstances surrounding a personal injury or work injury require immediate attention. Witnesses move. Memories change. Evidence is lost. As a result, the retention of a St. Louis personal injury and workers' compensation attorney is a step to preserve the evidence that may be necessary to prove your claim.

  • Full Value

    Another questions we often receive is – what is my case worth? Insurance companies push quick settlements that may release all of the parties that caused your injury. You may also be owed more than the insurance company is offering. How do you know? With our years of experience in personal injury and workers compensation cases, we understand and know the value of these cases. It is important to discuss your settlement offer with an experienced Missouri personal injury attorney.
