Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you've been involved in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another party or individual, it is advisable that you file a claim against the defendant so you can get compensated for the damages and injuries suffered during the accident. In most instances, it is the responsibility of an insurance company to pay or settle personal injury claims.
However, it is worth noting that insurance companies will always do their best to ensure that they pay the least amount of money, especially when it comes to claims that cost a lot, like those that involve hefty medical expenses, in order to stay profitable. Our attorneys know all the tricks insurers use to ensure they pay the least amount possible and can help you avoid being tricked or arm-twisted by insurance companies into accepting meager payouts.
Our skilled and experienced team of personal injury lawyers can be of service to you in the following ways:
Dealing With Insurance Companies
If an insurer tries to contact you, kindly let them know that all communication concerning the case is to be handled by us. In the meantime, we'll contact all the relevant creditors and let them know that there's a personal injury claim that's pending.
Investigating the Incident
We'll gather all the evidence needed to determine who is responsible for the accident. Whether it's a business, corporation, local government, or individual, we'll make sure that we identify the person or entity that's supposed to pay you for your injuries and damages.
Documenting and Calculating Your Losses
We'll help you determine the losses and costs associated with the accident. If it calls for it, we also work with experts from different fields to determine the long-term effects of injuries suffered, especially if the accident caused disabilities that negatively affect the plaintiff's employment and earning potential and which require ongoing assistance and care.
Negotiating Your Settlement
We understand how insurance companies work and know that they try to pressure victims into settling for less than what they truly deserve. As your legal counsel, we won't allow this to happen and will do our best to ensure you get well compensated for your damages and injuries. To make this possible, we'll document all of your expenses and losses to provide an extensive report of everything to be compensated.
Representation in Court
While a majority of personal injury claims are resolved out of court through a settlement, our skilled and experienced litigators are willing to (and will) take a case to court if the insurance company doesn't meet its obligations.
With Mike Bell Accident & Injury Lawyers by your side, you can rest assured you are in safe hands and that your case will be handled in the most professional way possible.

What Compensation Can I Receive Through An Injury Case?
When seeking compensation for injuries suffered due to the negligent actions of another, it is worth noting that insurers may try to use the law to their benefit. What most people do not consider is that insurance companies are businesses and are quite slick. As a result, they do everything they can to increase profits by using existing laws to either reduce the amount they payout as compensation or altogether avoid settling a claim. To ensure they mitigate the damages you suffered during the accident, insurers will use teams of investigators and attorneys to make sure things work out for them.
It's, therefore, a good idea to consider hiring the services of a professional, skilled, and experienced injury attorney that has good knowledge of personal injury laws and who can hold insurers accountable. With the right attorney by your side, your chances of getting compensated for your injuries increase considerably.
