Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney
Jan. 23, 2020
If you’ve been injured – whether in a car wreck, a premises liability case, bitten by a dangerous dog or injured in a medical procedure gone wrong – it’s highly advisable that you at least speak with a qualified attorney to assess your case and to help you determine whether to pursue a claim. At Chad West, PLLC, we take great pride in caring for our clients’ needs from the start and ensuring that they have an advocate by their side for the duration of the case. Aside from the physical pain you’ve endured as a result of your accident or injury, personal injury cases can be emotionally taxing and exhausting. Most of our clients come to us when they’ve reached the end of their rope and feel they just can’t handle any more of the phone calls, bills and managing an ongoing claim while also trying to recover physically from a debilitating injury.
We know the medical professionals. Over our years in practice, we have developed a trusted network of medical professionals who specialize in treatment and care for certain types of injuries. Hurt in a car wreck? Through our network of preferred providers, we will help you locate a medical practitioner who specializes in treatment of your specific injuries. We will recommend a provider who will give you the treatment you deserve. Our highly specialized network of providers also ensures that you have the right medical team in place should your case go all the way to court. You will have expert witnesses on your side.
We manage all the paperwork and billing so you can focus on recovery. When you have retained counsel with Chad West, PLLC, the phone calls and bills will stop. We will notify any medical providers who have treated you so far that we represent you and that all contact should come through our practice. When that happens, you can focus on your treatment and recovery. We'll also notify insurance companies that you are being represented by our firm. We'll help protect your rights and advocate for you.
We may be able to reduce the amount you owe for your medical treatment. We are proud of our proven track record of helping our clients come out ahead financially. The majority of our cases settle out of court for a sum that more than covers medical bills and leaves money in our clients’ pockets. Significant or severe injuries, such as those that occur during a car wreck, can impact not only your physical comfort but also your ability to work. One recent client was unfortunately unable to work for more than two months while she recovered. When you work with a qualified personal injury team, we can help reduce your out-of-pocket medical costs which ultimately helps if you are forced to take a medical leave of absence.
Some personal injury cases are more complex than the average person can handle on their own. Particularly with medical negligence claims or defective products claims, there’s a level of complexity to uncovering evidence that most people are not comfortable or familiar enough with to handle themselves. Leave it to the experts to handle discovery and requests for information to build a case.
Peace of mind. Quite simply, when you’re faced with a serious injury, you need someone on your side who can advocate for your rights. If the injuries are significant and you are overwhelmed, you owe it to yourself to at least get some answers. We offer free consultations to help evaluate cases and offer advice on whether you should pursue a claim at all. There is no risk to asking the questions that can help you make a more informed decision.
