If you’ve been in an accident, you may be worried about hiring a lawyer. After all, If I hire an attorney will that prolong the resolution of my case or guarantee that it goes to trial? The answer to this is actually no. There is no definite way to know how long your case will take and often an attorney will help you avoid going to court.
Length of Time for Your Case
Hiring an attorney doesn’t necessarily mean that it is going to take longer for you to obtain compensation. In fact, without an attorney you may not receive compensation at all. Your attorney will try to complete your case as quickly as possible and make sure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to. In most cases, the case will be settled through negotiations, which are faster than going to court, so you don’t have to wait through a lengthy court case.
When You Need to Go to Court
An attorney will begin working your case by negotiating with the insurance company. Most of the time, a case can be resolved through negotiations. Your attorney will recommend going to the court of he believes it will benefit you, but this is usually after negotiations have not been successful. Again, your attorney is going to try to complete the case as quickly as possible for you while still making sure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to. Your attorney can let you know of they believe negotiations will be successful in your case or if you may need to go to court. In cases where going to court may be necessary, you may not be able to obtain compensation on your own, so it’s likely a good idea.
If you’ve been injured in an accident and you’re worried about hiring a lawyer, you may be wondering, If I hire an attorney will that prolong the resolution of my case or guarantee that it goes to trial? The answer to this is generally no, but a specific answer would be tired to your particular case.
