What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney?

One of the most common questions we’re asked is, “Why do I need to hire an Illinois personal injury lawyer?” We understand why our clients ask this. After all, if you’re dealing with the stress of an injury or dealing with a family member’s injury, the last thing you’ll probably want to do is spend more time dwelling on the problem or dragging the resolution out. Unfortunately, if you choose not to hire an attorney, whether you’ve gotten hurt at work or endured a personal injury in Chicago, you may be at a disadvantage when it comes to advocating for yourself.

Insurance companies are driven by their bottom lines. They need to make profits, and for that reason, it’s crucial to realize that they’re not really on your side. They have no motivation to pay out large settlement amounts, and in some cases will even hire consultants who help them figure out how to avoid paying policyholders, even by skirting the law.

To fight back, it makes sense for those Illinois personal injury claimants and those who have workers’ compensation cases to hire attorneys. A recent study showed that claimants who were represented by lawyers received two to three times more compensation than claimants who were unrepresented. Think about that figure if you’ve been debating going at your case alone. That means that even after you’ve paid our fees, you can get more money than you would get by dealing with your insurance company alone. It just makes sense to get an attorney. On top of that extra money, you’ll also save time, frustration, and anxiety, since you won’t have to deal with the insurance company on your own.

When you hire the Illinois personal injury lawyers at Malman Law, PC, you can rest easy. Don’t dwell on the case—spend time healing and taking care of yourself and your family.
