No one ever anticipates that they will be in the position to consider hiring a Louisville injury attorney. It may seem like a daunting and intimidating process and one that you avoid. Knowing when to hire an attorney for your personal injury case can be challenging. This is especially confusing when you are trying to recover from injuries that you have received. The last thing you want to think about is the finances or the legal situation that you are in. If you have been injured due to the negligence or intent of another, you need to talk to an injury attorney from Gerling Law as soon as possible.

Why You Need a Louisville Injury Attorney

If you have been injured, you are going to be busy recovering from the injuries. There will likely be many questions and calls from others involved in the incident. The bills will accumulate, and you may be out of work for a long time. In some cases, you may need to deal with being out of work for some time in the future. One of our Louisville injury attorneys can help relieve some of the stress that you are going through by being the main contact for attorneys, insurance companies and others that might need to be in touch with you regarding the incident. They will protect your rights throughout the process and provide you with the information that you need to make informed decisions.

What to Expect When Hiring a Louisville Injury Attorney

When you hire a Louisville injury attorney, one of our professional lawyers will talk with you about the incident that caused the injuries. They will then want to know about your current physical situation as well as the prognosis if one is known. In some cases, a prognosis comes much later requiring that the attorney keeps in touch with your physician to stay up to date on your medical situation. We will ask you to provide them with any documents you have on hand relating to the injury as well as ask you to sign a release allowing them to obtain documents directly from the medical team that is working with you. The permission may extend to your employer and others. We also may write a letter to anyone involved in the situation to let them know they should contact the attorney directly instead of reaching out to you. The faster you get started, the more peace of mind you will have. Call Gerling Law at 888-437-5464 for more information.
