When it comes to personal injury, lawsuits can be difficult. Oftentimes, individuals are dealing with the aftermath of a serious injury or death of a loved one. The health concerns and medical bills can seem like a lot to deal with on their own, not to mention a personal injury suit. That’s why, attorney Daniel J. Murphy, Jr. is committed to helping individuals get the maximum compensation for their case and make the entire process as easy as possible. That being said, there are a few things you should know:
In some cases, a personal injury case may be very short and easy. This is especially true if a trial is not necessary because a settlement is reached. You and your lawyer are the only ones who can determine whether taking a settlement is the right decision for your situation. The vast majority of cases never go to trial, instead, they end in a settlement. However, sometimes a settlement can’t be reached and a case will go to court. In these cases, it’s difficult to tell how long the process will take. Sometimes, it can get lengthy.
Most personal injury cases end in a settlement from the insurance companies. Only you and your attorney can make a decision whether to accept the settlement offer. That being said, insurance companies don’t always offer fair settlements. In some cases, you or your lawyer may believe you are entitled to more compensation. In these cases, going to trial may be the best decision. Just because you were offered a settlement, does not necessarily mean you should accept it.
The experience an attorney has is important in just about every area of law. However, when it comes to personal injury, experience is even more important. Only and experienced personal injury attorney can estimate the compensation you are owed accurately and offer sound legal advice about whether you should accept or reject a settlement offer.
