Having an injury or accident and needing to file a compensation claim is already a stressful process. You’ve been through the trauma already and may have had your life seriously affected. It’s obvious already that you’re owed compensation, but how could having a great attorney change your situation?
One of the biggest things a decent attorney will do is take a lot of the burden away from you. There are certain things which have to be done as part of the compensation process. Obviously you might need time to rest, recover or even rehabilitate after an accident, so it’s not ideal for you to be running around and dealing with the details. Add stress to that and you have even more reason to rest. Resting and staying stress-free are 2 of the most important recovery factors.Why else should you get a good attorney though?
Dealing With the Paperwork
As we said, keeping yourself stress free is important at this time. The last thing you need is to be running around filing paperwork or collecting evidence. All of this is time consuming and can be hard to understand because there’s a lot of bureaucracy involved. Leaving it to your attorney gives you peace of mind that everything is done properly, and on time. The due process will be followed every time and you never have to worry or second guess whether you filled out the forms properly.
They Know the Law
An attorney is a professional in the law, so they’re going to understand it better than you do. They know what can and can’t be asked of you, so they can best protect you from unnecessary intrusions. They also know what can be asked for on the other side and what type of evidence actually matters. All of this combines and gives you a better chance of winning your case or getting a bigger settlement.
They Have the Experience & Contacts
Firms like Hupy and Abraham have been in the business for many years, dealing with all kinds of claims. These firms have previous experience to call on when considering settlements and your actual chances of winning. They also have built contacts within the legal industry, and other sectors, which could be very useful in getting you good, fast treatment as well as dealing with the case.
Staying Stress Free & Informed
A good attorney has knowledge which helps you to stay stress-free. It’s already been established that mental and emotional symptoms can occur after an accident/injury. These will slow your recovery and could affect other areas of your life (relationships, finances, etc.) so it’s a good idea to minimize the stressors. A decent attorney will deal with all of the paperwork effortlessly and be able to explain the process to you in simple terms. This way you know exactly what’s going on and are well informed, yet you aren’t stressed and there’s very little workload on you. Your focus can remain with recovery & rehab, so you can get back to your life as soon as possible!
