When to Hire an Attorney in Marin County

When you have had a personal injury in Marin from an auto accident, work related accident, manufacturers product defect, medical error or malpractice, it’s important to have the council of an attorney as soon as possible to handle the multitude of factors that need to be considered. Most people become easily overwhelmed without the help of an attorney that has a clear understanding of the law. Unfortunately most people in Marin County wait until dealing with a personal injury has become unmanageable before hiring a lawyer.

Why You Need To Hire a Lawyer ASAP

There are many costs that result from a personal injury. You can be compensated for the majority of these costs if you are working with an experienced attorney that will advocate for you.

Some of the costs of a personal injury include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage (from auto accidents)
  • Funeral costs (in the event of death)

It’s easy for someone to get overwhelmed if they are trying to navigate the system themselves. If you are trying to deal with insurance companies yourself, it is easy to make critical mistakes, like admitting fault or signing legal documents. Remember, the insurance company’s only interest is in minimizing claims. Any information that you give them can and will be used against you for this purpose. This is why it is important to hire an attorney as soon as possible after an accident.

Benefits of Hiring a Marin County Personal Injury Lawyer Early

There are many benefits if you hire a Marin County personal injury lawyer early.

Benefits include:

  • Insurance companies ask questions immediately
  • Police will ask questions immediately
  • Get the best criminal defense

Both your insurance company and the other side’s insurance company will begin asking questions immediately. If you try to deal with them yourself you could severely limit your settlement or even negate it. In addition, depending on the severity of your case, like an auto accident, the police may be involved and will want information right after the incident. An experienced personal injury lawyer like the lawyer at The Law Offices of Craig Dykman will field these questions for you and give you peace of mind while ensuring that you receive the largest settlement possible.
