Benefits of hiring


If you or a family member was seriously injured in an accident, you may be debating whether to contact a personal injury lawyer. You might have concerns that the cost of a lawyer exceeds the benefits of representation. We can say confidently that, for most accident victims, the benefits of hiring a personal injury lawyer are vast and worth the time to schedule a free, confidential consultation. Below is a list of just some of the benefits associated with hiring an experienced Los Angeles & San Jose personal injury attorney.

Free, Confidential Case Evaluation

The personal injury attorneys with RS Law Offices provide free, confidential consultations to all prospective clients. This affords you an opportunity to explain what exactly happened, the harms you have suffered, and what you are hoping to achieve from a personal injury claim. It also affords an opportunity for the lawyer to assess the viability of a personal injury case and determine if it makes sense to go forward.

Reduced Stress and Anxiety

Once you hire an attorney to handle your personal injury claim, the attorney will deal with the insurance company and advocate for you. This means reduced stress and anxiety for you since the burden of pursuing financial restitution is taken off your shoulders. You should focus on getting your life back to normal after the accident.

Oversight of Filing Deadlines

Many people injured in serious accidents lacking representation fall victim to the statute of limitation. Statutes of Limitations. These are cut-off periods of time and if you attempt to file a claim after the statutory period has expired, you could be prohibited from ever pursuing financial restitution for your harms and losses.

Ability to Effectively Negotiate

It is quite common for insurance adjusters to try and take advantage of claimants lacking representation. This is because adjusters believe they can make lowball offers to a claimant who is not well versed in the law or insurance policies. An experienced and skilled Los Angeles personal injury attorney can level the proverbial playing field. They know how to negotiate and know what to expect from insurance adjusters.

Someone to Talk To During a Difficult Period in Your Life

A personal injury claim is a new and frustrating experience for many people. Your attorney will be with you every step of the way to advise you on important matters related to your case or claim. You will have someone that you can call or send an e-mail to, who can answer your questions and to advise you along the course of your claim.

Representation in Court

It is perfectly understandable to be intimidated and overwhelmed by the prospect of going to court. There are a litany of court rules and procedures you need to know and you will be going against an experienced insurance defense attorney. When you have an attorney on your side, they will put your mind at ease and handle all aspects of the litigation.

Having Court Costs and Expenses Advanced

The personal injury lawyers in RS Law Offices will advance costs for medical experts and the costs of litigation. Litigation can be quite expensive and many people do not have the resources to fight a big insurance company alone.

Access to Medical Treatment on a Lien

This is one of the biggest benefits of attorney representation. Health care providers who deal with injury claims want some guaranty that, if the insurance company pays you money, that their interest in getting paid for their services will be protected. Unrepresented claimants have been known to go south with the settlement proceed and not pay their health care providers. Attorneys are bound by ethical rules concerning liens. We must satisfy liens (or negotiate liens if the settlement proceeds do not give the claimant adequate compensation) out of the proceeds of a settlement. This is the health care provider’s insurance that they will be paid. Generally, you cannot get treatment on a lien if you are not represented.
