You were recently involved in an accident. As a result, you received one or more injuries. You are unable to return to work, your medical bills are over the roof and on top of that, you are experiencing severe pain.

The question is what do you do next?

Well, if you live in Spokane Washington, and this happened to you, consider speaking with a legal representative. If you do not know which attorney to call, give us a call. Call our offices and speak with our Spokane personal injury attorneys today to receive a free case evaluation. Perhaps you were a victim, and are eligible to file a personal injury claim against the party responsible for causing the accident.

Many people believe that they do not need an attorney and that attorneys are “too expensive”. This is a common misconception; you always need an attorney and they are cheaper than you think. 

Here are some of the most important reasons why you should hire a personal injury attorney in Spokane.

An Attorney Will Handle Your Case

The chances are that you have no idea what a personal injury case is, and how the claim is filed. If that is the case, you should definitely contact our attorneys as soon as you are able to. The best time to give us a call is right after the accident before you talk with anyone else.

If you do not get legal representation, you will not know what to do next and will end up speaking with the insurance adjusters. You will most likely give them enough information to use against you, accept a lesser deal, or sign a statement that will not benefit your case, but quite the opposite.

Remember that we are the only ones on your side and that our job is to protect your interests. Give us a call as soon as you are able to, and our personal injury attorneys in Spokane will take over your case and handle it properly. They will listen to all your needs, provide you with much-needed guidance and assistance, and respond to all your questions.

Help With Damage Calculations

Another reason why you should hire our attorneys is to help you calculate your damages. There are usually two types of damages that can be calculated and compensated. These include:
  • Economic damages
  • Non-economic damages

Economic damages are easier to calculate, and they include:

  • Your medical bills, both current and the future ones
  • Your lost wages, as well as the loss of your earning potential
  • Your property damage (if your vehicle was damaged)
  • Loss of career
  • Cost of retraining
  • Other recovery costs that include house care, walking aid, wheelchair ramps

Non-economic damages are more difficult to calculate, as they represent damages that you are suffering since the accident. These include:
  • Your pain and suffering
  • Your emotional trauma
  • Your mental anguish
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Loss of consortium and companionship
  • Loss of reputation
  • Loss of a limb
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement

Remember that non-economic damages take more time to calculate and that you do need help from an experienced individual who can help calculate your damages properly.

Help Gather The Evidence

In order to prove the other party’s negligence, you will have to collect evidence which clearly shows who was at fault. To do so, you are going to hire an attorney, someone with resources and connections. If you cannot think of an attorney to call, feel free to give us a call. Our Spokane personal injury attorneys will get in touch with certain professionals who will help investigate your case and find enough evidence to support your claim.

Gathering crucial pieces of information is essential for every personal injury case. Without it, you will never be able to prove negligence and will not have a case, to begin with.

Interviewing Witnesses

Another thing that most personal injury attorneys are good at is interviewing witnesses who witnessed the accident. Most of the time, you will need that crucial evidence to help you prove your case and file a valid, strong claim against the party who caused the accident. And the only way to obtain the evidence will be by interviewing a witness. If you can get them to testify and say what they saw, you will have enough to get the highest settlement possible. Even if your case goes to trial, it will be enough to convince the jury and get you what you want.

Help With The Negotiations

You will need someone to represent your best interests when speaking with the insurance company. Our attorneys will help you with the negotiations, and do everything in their power to help increase your total settlement. Keep in mind that without the help and representation of a legal professional, you will most likely accept a lesser deal, one that will barely cover any of your expenses. 

The worst-case scenario is that you receive enough to cover all your bills and have a little extra on the side. How bad can that be? Call our attorneys today and schedule your free initial consultation.

Acting In Your Best Interests

Personal injury attorneys are your only friends. They are the only ones that you can rely on after suffering an accident, and the only ones who will act in your best interests. If you believe that the insurance company is your friend, you are wrong. Contrary to our personal injury attorneys in Spokane, the insurance company will do everything to try and stop you from getting the compensation that you are after. In addition, they will use different legal methods to try and lower your settlement. 

Speak with your friends and family members, and see if anyone had a similar experience in the past. They will all tell you that hiring a personal injury attorney is the best way to go. Give us a call whenever you can, without hesitation, and we will take your case and see that you are awarded the highest compensation possible for your damages.
