An attorney should be hired immediately after an incident, NOT after you're tired of fighting with the insurance company
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) July 26, 2011
Many people don't know when or why they would need a personal injury attorney. Whether it's for a not-at-fault car accident, or a lawsuit against a company that makes a defective product, many people can benefit from hiring a personal injury attorney to help them get the compensation they deserve. Glen J. Lerner and Associates of Las Vegas, Nevada, want to clear the air regarding the personal injury process, and explain the benefits of hiring a lawyer rather than dealing with insurance companies on your own.
For example, if an individual is injured in a car accident that is not their fault and incurs medical bills that exceed the state minimum requirement for coverage, hiring an attorney is potentially beneficial because an attorney will file a lawsuit against the insurance company, requesting more money and negotiating reductions in medical costs.
However, getting an individual more money is not always the most rewarding benefit- according to past clients' responses, the most appreciated experience about working with Glen J. Lerner & Associates was the peace of mind that came along with knowing so many people were looking after them.
In all cases handled at Glen Lerner's firm, the goals for each client are simple. First, it is important for the client to receive the medical attention they need. Knowing that one can seek medical care as soon as possible, without having to worry about up-front costs, can relieve a large amount of stress. If the injury occurred in a car accident, most likely the individual is left without a vehicle. Glen Lerner's firm assists in securing transportation as quickly as possible, but will also accommodate clients by making house visits, and assisting the client in seeking medical care that is conveniently located, or in some cases, mobile. Each client is assigned an attorney, a case manager, and support staff to manage and keep them informed of their case. All of these people are there to assist the client or work towards getting them the maximum recovery possible. The team at Glen J. Lerner and Associates has settled or litigated to judgement over $65,000,000 for clients in the last year alone, making Glen Lerner the most successful Las Vegas injury attorney.
In many cases where an individual does not hire a lawyer, insurance companies may offer very little in the form of compensation. Many people will accept this compensation simply because they don't know the full extent of costs that an injury may incur. Most forget to factor in their time dealing with insurance companies, getting any property damage fixed, and the potential loss of work that may result from an injury.
"An attorney should be hired immediately after an incident, NOT after you're tired of fighting with the insurance company. I watched my family struggle and stress for months fighting with the insurance company to get medical bills paid, only to have them refuse the claims. I wish my family had hired an attorney, it would have saved them years of headaches, " said Tabitha Scarbrough of Las Vegas.
A common misconception about hiring a personal injury attorney is that the attorney fees are so outrageous that there is little left for the client. This is generally inaccurate. While there are service fees associated with winning a case, this is agreed upon by the firm and the client before opening a claim. Most of the time, after the firm is paid for their services, the client still walks away with substantially more money in their pocket than if they hadn't hired an accident attorney.
Though injury attorneys are often the subject of criticism due to the nature of their work- nicknamed "ambulance chasers" in many cases (a term Glen Lerner himself parodied in a recent commercial)- the benefits to hiring an attorney outweigh any negative perceptions. A personal injury attorney will help you get the care you need, and potentially save you time and hard work in an effort to get you maximum compensation.
