Why do you need a personal injury lawyer?

You’re smart, capable, and remember your accident perfectly. So why do you need a lawyer? The truth is, an accident can change your life in seconds. Whether a negligent trucker, distracted driver, or poorly-designed product caused your injury, you have the legal right to pursue compensation from the insurance company or the other party themselves.

Your instinct may be to try and recover that money by yourself, but the chances of obtaining the money you need on your own are extremely slim. Insurance companies pull tricks to devalue your claim and give you next to nothing. This is not what you deserve after you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault.

Of course, if you were injured, you’re likely facing mountains of medical bills and other expenses. You may assume hiring a lawyer is out of the question, but the attorneys at Langdon & Emison will not charge you anything until you’ve been awarded a verdict or settlement.

1. A Lawyer Will Protect Your Legal Interests

Insurance companies aren’t looking out for you. They are businesses, and they stay afloat by “offering” injury victims the lowest possible settlement. If they gave everyone the money they needed, they’d be out of business.

Don’t accept the first offer they put on the table. It will not be anywhere near the maximum amount of compensation possible. Instead, you need a personal injury lawyer to protect your legal right to pursue equitable compensation.

At Langdon & Emison, we will calculate all the expenses related to your accident and will not settle for anything less than what you need. You may have injuries you’re not even aware of yet; don’t settle for an offer without consulting an attorney first.

2. A Lawyer Can Help You Get the Best Medical Care

At Langdon & Emison, we are committed to your full recovery. Part of that is getting you the money you deserve, and part of that is ensuring you receive the best possible medical care for your injuries. We are fortunate to have a relationship with some of the best medical professionals in Missouri and Illinois, and we can help you find the best treatment for your injury.

Because we have a close relationship with these doctors, we can also use their testimony as evidence in court. That means you’ll get the most out of your personal injury claim and be backed by professionals in the legal and medical industries. The insurance company or defendant will be much less likely to devalue or deny your case when we can prove the extent of your injuries through a doctor’s testimony.

The personal injury lawyers at Langdon & Emison will evaluate all the facts of your case. We will speak with your doctor or medical team to get the most accurate estimate of the cost of future care, and we will work to recover every penny that you deserve.

3. Lawyers Are Experts at Evaluating Damage and Obtaining Evidence

The defendant will try and prove they’re not responsible for your injuries. Without a personal injury attorney on your side, they’re much more likely to be successful in doing so.

An attorney will prevent that from happening by conducting a thorough investigation of your case. For example, if you were injured in a car crash, we can hire accident reconstruction experts who will use scientific methodology to determine the circumstances and contributing factors of the crash.

We leave no stone unturned, and we will speak with as many witnesses and experts as necessary to prove that you were the victim in your accident and deserve equitable compensation.

4. Lawyers Offer Peace of Mind

After suffering injuries in an accident, you’ll likely feel stressed, confused, and uncertain of the future. You likely have piles of bills to pay and are unsure how you’ll pay them. This is why you need a personal injury attorney from Langdon & Emison at your side.

We won’t settle for low payments from the insurance company. Our strength lies in getting our clients what they deserve; we will represent you relentlessly from the moment you call us to after you receive a claim you are satisfied with.
