Why Do You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

Reading about statistics can be extremely boring. And it has been proven that countless times that statistics can be manipulated to show just about anything that the researcher wants it to show. It is refreshing to find a study that is entertaining and a bit informative. Take for example an Australian research group that studied which zodiac sign was more likely to be involved in an auto accident. The results were that Aquarius and Cancer are the two most likely zodiac signs to be involved in an auto accident. Those two groups are going to need a personal injury attorney if they are ever seriously injured.

Why do you need a personal injury attorney? It all comes down to money. The person's insurance who was at fault wants to pay as little out as possible. They may pay for your vehicle to be repaired or replaced. They may even pay for a few of your medical bills if you were injured. But the real bottom line is that they want you to receive as little money as possible.

Personal injury attorneys work with people who have been injured due to the negligence of someone else. They work to get insurance companies and the people at fault to pay what is due. The insurance company may not pay for pain and suffering as a result of the accident. Your hospital bills may total over a hundred thousand dollars but they only want to pay half of that. Personal injury law works by getting you the money that you need to pay your bills and to compensate you for someone else's negligence.

There are lots of injury claims against negligent people each year. Some are a bit far fetched. A fender bender in which just minor damage occurs is not worth a quarter of a million dollars. Your accident attorney will advise you on how much money you can realistically expect to receive if your case goes to court. Hopefully, the insurance company will offer you a fair settlement so you never have to go to court.

Do the Zodiac signs Aquarius and Cancer really have more accidents than any other sign? Well, according to the study they do. But it is interesting that someone born under the Libra sign is the least likely to make a claim. If you are a Libra and you have been hurt in a vehicular accident because of someone else's negligence, then you need to get a personal injury attorney to make sure you are protected and that your expenses are covered.
