Going into a trial can be a scary thing. Especially if you have been injured, and the person you are suing owes you money for the resulting bills. Not only is the trial itself a scary thing, but the chance that you might not get that money is something you may not even want to think about.
Getting a personal injury lawyer is a smart move. Yes, it might cost more out of your settlement than going it alone, but it will significantly improve your chances of success in the trial. Injuries can result from many different instances: car accident, something falling on you, uneven ground, or even hot coffee. These are generally not malicious acts, but they were still caused by someone’s carelessness and so there needs to be some form of restitution for the damage caused.
An attorney knows how the system works, and is familiar with things like going into a trial. These are strange events for most people–some may have never seen the inside of a courtroom before–, so having the aid of an injury lawyer can help take some of the stress off of the right person: you, the victim. With experience on your side the trial should go smoothly and, hopefully, after all is said and done, you will come out on top with your health back to normal and your bills taken care of.
