Hiring an injury attorney to represent you will even the playing field. Your attorney can negotiate on your behalf.
They Understand Your Legal Rights To Compensation
Many people don't know how to calculate compensation for pain and suffering or lost wages. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, about 22% of slip and fall accidents result in 31 days of missed work. If you were in a similar situation, how much money would you be losing? An attorney can calculate the appropriate amount of compensation using the right formula to ensure your needs are met.

An experienced attorney knows all the tricks that insurance companies can use. They'll keep pushing your claim through any obstacles the insurance company puts in place. You'll likely be able to settle your claim faster with the help of an attorney.
