Why You Might Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured and you believe the accident happened because of another party's negligence, you might need a Memphis personal injury lawyer. As a general rule of thumb, if you think you should call a lawyer, you should listen to your instinct and do so as soon as possible.

If negligence contributed to your injury or illness, technically you can file a claim against the liable party on your own. However, this is risky and could result in disappointment, lost time, and minimum recovery. You lose nothing by consulting a personal injury lawyer Memphis residents trust. If you're still unsure, consider the following:

  • A personal injury lawyer can speed up your case.
  • You can focus on your recovery while the lawyer takes care of the hard work.
  • You have a better chance at recovering more money.
  • Insurance companies, judges, and jurors tend to take a case more seriously if a lawyer is involved.
  • Lawyers, such as The Higgins Firm, are master negotiators.
  • A lawyer can handle all negotiations with the insurance company.
  • If a settlement cannot be reached, a lawyer should be ready to go to trial.

When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
