Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

The Personal Injury Attorneys at Owens / Pinzelik, P.C. are Results-Driven Professionals, Working with Clients to Protect their Rights

How do you decide when it is appropriate and advantageous for you to hire an attorney? Some people who have been injured choose to deal with the insurance companies and the legal system on their own. This can be beneficial when an insurance company immediately accepts your claim or when the monetary amount of the claim is very low. But in any situation where there is a doubt that you will recover the full amount you are entitled to or the claim is for any substantial amount of money, it is essential to hire an attorney to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

What the personal injury attorneys at Owens / Pinzelik, P.C. can do for you:

In our experience, represented clients generally have higher damage recoveries than unrepresented clients. This is because lawyers know how to make a strong case to insurance companies and in court. We will thoroughly investigate your claim and make a well-researched, articulate, and compelling argument for your case. It’s our job.

Time and time again we see that opposing parties and insurance companies are more likely to give you a favorable settlement when you are represented because they know that a competent lawyer will not be afraid to take your case to court. Many insurance companies think that an unrepresented person will be afraid to take a case to court so their settlement offers are low. Don’t assume that a settlement offer is fair. Insurance companies have teams of investigators and lawyers looking after their interests; let our experienced attorneys look after yours.

Our lawyers and staff can request copies of police reports, contact insurance companies on your behalf, and ensure necessary paperwork is filed on time. There are many statutes of limitation and other deadlines for insurance claims and personal injury cases and it is important that you have an attorney retained who is mindful of these deadlines.
