You should hire a personal injury lawyer to help you recover damages after a motor vehicle accident if your injuries are very serious, the at-fault driver did not have liability insurance, or your insurance company is putting up obstacles to paying a satisfactory amount for your claim.
The court systems of Florida are meant to be accessible to everyone, and it is possible to represent yourself, as opposed to hiring an attorney, in most kinds of legal actions. It is possible to represent yourself in a personal injury case, where an injured person seeks compensation for their injury-related financial losses from the person or company whose negligence caused the injury, but if your case is so complex that filing a lawsuit is the only way to resolve it, you should probably hire a lawyer. In uncomplicated cases, you simply file a claim with your insurance company and get a sufficient insurance payout. These are some situations in which you should hire a Boca Raton car accident lawyer to help you recover compensation after a motor vehicle accident.

The More Money at Stake, the More You Need a Lawyer
You have probably never thought much about your insurance policy limits. Medical bills are so expensive, though, that an injury that is severe enough to require surgery followed by months of physical therapy can easily exceed the limits that insurance companies are required to pay, according to the terms of your policy or that of the at-fault driver. If you had to miss work for more than a few days because of your injury, then the money you need to compensate for your accident-related losses (medical bills and lost income) can easily exceed the policy limits.
Trouble With Insurance Companies
Suing people is not all that personal injury lawyers do to help injured people get the money they need. They also negotiate with insurance companies and persuade them that offering an adequate settlement without going to court is in everyone’s interest. Insurance companies prey on consumers’ lack of knowledge on the industry and on the vulnerability of injured people. You should hire a personal injury lawyer to help you deal with the insurance companies if you have received an insufficient settlement offer or if it is taking an unreasonably long time to get your money. If possible, you should have your lawyer talk to the claims adjusters, instead of talking to them directly, so that they do not ask you trick questions and use your answers against you. Even if you have already given a recorded statement to the insurance company, it is not too late to get a lawyer involved.
