Finding a Manitou Springs personal injury lawyer used to be a chore. Either you had to search online, scouring through review after review (which takes forever). Or you had to arrange meeting after meeting with different attorneys until you found the right one. Well, either that, or you simply pick the first one you find. But how does that give the best outcome for your case?
Fortunately, there’s a new way to find the best local lawyers. 719-PAIN is a service just for the people of Colorado Springs and the surrounding area. We can help you find attorneys, physicians, and chiropractors: all without charging. Interested? Read on to find out how it works. First off, though, let’s take a look at why you should always hire a lawyer instead of taking on a case alone.
Why Hire a Manitou Springs Personal Injury Lawyer?
Because the process of finding a lawyer might seem like a chore, it’s tempting to avoid the problem altogether. After all, you can process compensation claims on your own. But there are a handful of complications that you have to watch out for. For example:
- The statute of limitations and other regulations mean that your papers have to be filed in a timely manner. If not, your claim won’t count for anything.
- Insurance companies are happy to delay cases, call every piece of evidence into question, and low-ball you at every turn. It often takes an expert to navigate their many tricks.
- If your case eventually goes to personal injury mediation or court, the process gets more complex. You have to be prepared for this, or you can end up losing your case on a technicality.
Hiring an attorney effectively avoids these problems. Personal injury attorneys know every single trick that insurance companies pull. They’ll help you navigate the tricky process of getting a case to its conclusion. Not only that, but they’ll be able to get you a bigger settlement by the end, too. If that’s not a reason to hire one, what is?
So, the question turns from why hire a Manitou Springs personal injury lawyer, to how to hire a Manitou Springs personal injury lawyer. There are a few approaches that you should be aware of. Each has its own pros and cons. Let’s take a look at each in turn, before considering what 719-PAIN can do for you.
Ways to Find a Manitou Springs Personal Injury Lawyer
There are three main ways to find a lawyer (aside from 719-PAIN!) Each has unique pros and cons.
The most common way that people find attorneys these days is online. Every attorney has an online ‘presence’ these days, and it’s easy to find some just through a simple search. But recent news has indicated that you can’t quite trust what you read online these days. For example, did you know that businesses buy and sell five star reviews online? It’s true, and it’s not illegal. Online platforms allow freelancers to sell online review services for as little as $5.
Attorneys are generally more trustworthy than your average business. But even so, this practise is surprisingly widespread, and can mean the difference between earning clients and not. So, while you can find plenty more choice by searching online, using reviews to judge a business might not be the smartest way to work.
Through Word of Mouth
Next up, you could find an attorney through word of mouth. This can be a great idea, because it gives you a trustworthy ‘review’. Ask around among friends, family and colleagues: anybody that you trust. Unfortunately, though, there’s one big drawback to going on word of mouth. You don’t get any real variety.
Most people simply find an attorney after a quick online search and one consultation. It’s little wonder: after a personal injury, you need plenty of time to recover. You have to get your car back on the road, fight your claim, attend physiotherapy and hospital appointments, and spend time with your family. There simply isn’t time in the day to scour through hundreds of online reviews and testimonials. So your friend or colleague probably won’t have done their research. Plus, you’re likely to only hear about one or two potential options. That’s no choice at all.
In Real Life
The same goes if you search ‘in real life’. You can set up free consultations with attorneys, which is fantastic: you get to meet them face to face and find out lots more about them. Unfortunately, this too eats up plenty of time. Plus, you have no idea if it’s all a sales pitch. What if the ‘real thing’ isn’t as good as it seems? That’s a risk you just have to take if you search for attorneys using face to face consultations.
It’s enough to make you wish there was an alternative. Fortunately, there is.
