Why Do People Hire Personal Injury Attorneys?

Posted Aug 15, 2022 by Matt Boulton

For every profession there’s a widely held belief that proves to be less than accurate. Some of the biggest myths are attached to personal injury attorneys.

In fact, the very thought of a personal injury attorney might trigger negative emotions in some people.

So why would someone hire an Indiana personal injury attorney?

Matt has helped thousands of Hoosiers and their families, each with unique stories and cases, however, the reason they hired him falls in one of three categories.

3 Reasons People REALLY Hire Personal Injury Attorneys

  • A Friend or Family Member Referred Them

Several of Matt’s clients have said to him they never would have hired a personal injury attorney had they not heard about a positive story from a friend or family member who had previously retained him for legal representation.

Boulton Group is proud to say that our Indiana personal injury firm was built on referrals, and our present case count continues to be largely made of individuals who came to us by the recommendation of a prior client.

  • They Don’t Want to Deal with the Hassle

Some people simply don’t want to be involved with a process that can take months or years to resolve.

On average, a soft-tissue case may take anywhere from 3-12 months to settle for maximum value. Of course, there are always circumstances that will affect this timeline, e.g., a person settles immediately and takes a smaller offer.

Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney who dedicates their entire practice to Indiana accident law can help to expedite the process and obtain the maximum settlement possible.

Also, it’s not uncommon for Matt to speak with a client who tells them about a bad experience they had with an insurance company. Stories involving canceled policies, raised rates, bad customer service, etc.

  • It Happened to Them

This one is about perspective and experience. Unless you have suffered an injury in a car collision or similar incident, you can’t truly
understand the emotions of the person involved.

Specifically, Matt has talked with a number of Hoosiers who felt the need to tell him: “I’ve never been the type to think about suing or
hiring a lawyer, but this isn’t fair.”

It’s ok. There is never any need to justify why you wish to hire a personal injury attorney. The fact is that you were wronged and you simply want to put things back in place.

Don’t let anyone else tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. Make your decision to hire an attorney based on your needs and be comfortable with it.
