Legally Reviewed and Edited by: Terry Cochran
If you’re the victim of a personal injury, you know just how trying and life-altering these situations can be. These injuries can have severe and life-altering effects that lead to pain and suffering and a long list of financial struggles, from costly medical bills to lost wages. Your injuries can even affect your ability to work and earn income in the future.
Beyond the support of family and friends, you need someone with legal expertise who can guide you through this difficult situation and get the compensation and justice you deserve. If you wish to seek reparations for your personal injury, here’s why you should hire a personal injury lawyer.
How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You
Personal injury claims are complicated. They require strong evidence, extensive medical records, eyewitness statements, and accident reports to prove your case. Working with a personal injury lawyer who has extensive experience in personal injury cases and knows how to build a strong case enables you to heal while they handle the legal work.
When working with insurance companies, having an attorney on your side can help level the playing field to ensure you’re not taken advantage of by insurance companies that routinely limit or deny compensation. Because your lawyer knows what your case is worth, they can help you obtain a fair and timely deal with insurance companies.
Additionally, an experienced lawyer can help you avoid costly mistakes, like missed deadlines or saying something that could be used against you in your case. With their guidance and expertise, you can avoid common pitfalls that may hurt your chances of winning your case.
At Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you aren’t charged any fees unless we secure a settlement on your behalf. Your attorney assumes the risk, so you don’t have to stress over upfront fees while you’re dealing with a mountain of other costs.
When to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
While not all personal injury cases require the assistance of an expert in personal injury law, many situations warrant the decision to hire a lawyer. Consider finding an experienced lawyer if:
- Your injury is the result of an intentional act by someone else
- Your injury is the result of someone else’s negligence
- Your accident resulted in serious injuries or someone else’s death
- The accident has caused temporary or permanent disability
- You’ve missed work due to your injury
- You’re not certain about the full extent of your losses
- You’re concerned your losses will not be covered
- Your injuries have emotionally impacted you
- You want to seek compensation for your injuries
- It’s unclear who is at fault in the accident

Seeking legal help in any of these instances can ensure you have someone in your corner fighting for you. If you were injured in an accident, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney from Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., drastically improves the odds of winning your case and ensures you get the amount of compensation you deserve.
