Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney for Your Case?

Injury armThe pain and loss of a personal injury can be devastating, regardless of whether you were injured in a car accident, on the job, while at a store or business, or by a defective product. Unfortunately, insurance companies, businesses, and employers often do all that they can to reduce their payout for your case. This can significantly impact the future of you and your loved ones. Learn how an experienced personal injury attorney can help you fight back in your pursuit for full and fair compensation.

An Attorney Can Protect Your Rights

As a citizen, you are probably familiar with at least some of your Constitutional rights. For example, you have a right to bear arms, free speech, and protection from unlawful search and seizure. Did you know, though, that you also have the right to expect that others will act in a reasonable and responsible manner? This is where personal injury lawsuits are rooted - negligent actions that harm others open up the opportunity for a personal injury case. This is your right.

Unfortunately, the insurance companies and others who are faced with the possibility of paying out compensation do not want you to fully exercise this right. Further, they will do all that they can to keep you from doing so. They might attempt to offer you a low settlement, or they may delay your claim to try and convince you that you should give up. Some may even outright deny your claim, despite you having evidence of their wrongdoing or negligent behavior. An attorney can protect you against these situations.

An Attorney Can Negotiate on Your Behalf

In addition to protecting your rights, an experienced personal injury lawyer can also negotiate on your behalf. This can be especially critical in cases that involve less tangible damages, such as pain and suffering, loss of employment, or loss of a life or limb. You see, these damages are not like your medical bills; they do not have an exact dollar for dollar compensation. An attorney has the experience and knowledge needed to place a dollar amount on the pain and losses that you and your family have experienced at the hands of a negligent party.

An Attorney Can Reduce Your Stress Levels

While all the benefits of an attorney are certainly worth mentioning, few are quite as prominent as the reduced stress that many clients experience. Rather than having to communicate with the insurance companies directly, or turn in or fill out confusing paperwork on a deadline, or run from one office to another to try and collect your medical records, you can rely on your attorney for assistance. This can ensure you have the time, energy, and mental focus you need to heal and grieve.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
