Advice From an Ottawa Dog Bite Lawyerdogbite

A lot of accident victims wonder whether or not they should hire an Ottawa dog bite lawyer or personal injury lawyer after they have been in an accident or sustained an injury. It is a very common issue. Studies have shown that approximately *60% of all accident victims settle with the insurance company without ever consulting a personal injury lawyer. Are these people saving money in legal fees or losing money by settling for less than they deserve?

It would not be practical to make a decision on the perceived size of the claim without a lawyer’s input. If the victim assumes that the claim is small and is not significant enough to justify the legal fees, a quick consultation with a lawyer will help to determine the actual size of the claim. Claimants may be surprised to learn the actual value of the claim when working with a lawyer that can determine who responsible for the injuries and understands where the damages can be recovered from.

When should you hire an Ottawa dog bite lawyer ?

Larger, more complex claims are always best left with an experienced personal injury lawyer who :

* Can achieve higher settlements than what the claimant can on their own

* Can explain legal documents and related paperwork

* Has claims assessment expertise

* Is experienced in working with defendant’s lawyers and insurance company lawyers

* Will represent the victim and work towards the best possible outcome

Understanding when you should seek out the services of an Ottawa dog bite lawyer or personal injury lawyer is essential to getting the compensation you deserve. Don’t let the negligence of another party cause you undue stress and pain. If you or a loved one has been hurt in an injury or accident, contact our personal injury lawyers  for a free consultation.
