5 Signs it’s Time to Call a Personal Injury Lawyer
You’ve heard the term, “accidents happen,” right? Well, they do. In the case of a minor parking lot bumper-tap in which no one is hurt, two drivers exchange insurance information, and the whole thing is dealt with swiftly and easily. No lawyers necessary. Or maybe you slip and fall at a party, and the homeowner offers to pay your medical expenses. Again, an unfortunate accident, but one in which both parties feel comfortable with the outcome.
If only all accidents were so easily fixed…
But they’re not. Accidents can get extremely complicated when people get hurt, cars get wrecked, bills pile up, and multiple insurance companies get in the mix, each with its own set of complex rules about what it will and will not cover.
When that’s the case, and you’re trying to fight for your rights to compensation on your own, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and even to give up. But when you do, you end up taking on financial burdens that are not yours to carry. It’s important to know when it’s time to seek help.
At Salmu Law Firm in San Diego, our skilled personal injury lawyers can help keep that burden off your shoulders by getting you the compensation you deserve.

5 signs that it’s time to call a San Diego personal injury lawyer
You have severe or long-term injuries
“Some” compensation is not enough. A personal injury lawyer can help make sure you get enough to cover your medical bills as well as the length of time it takes you to recover.
You’ve experienced a significant loss of wages due to the accident
Even if your insurance company has agreed to pay your medical bills, you could still end up in debt from a loss of wages. A personal injury lawyer can help make sure your settlement covers auto repair, lost wages, and other expenses beyond your medical bills.
You’re the victim of medical malpractice
Medical questions and legal rules involved with malpractice suits can be complex and confusing. A skilled personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the complexities and win your case.
The homeowner refuses to reveal their insurer
When you’re injured at a neighbor’s house due to their negligence (a faulty handrail or poorly placed rugs on the floors or stairs), you’ll want to go through their homeowner’s insurance. But if they refuse to reveal the insurance carrier, you may need a personal injury lawyer to take action against the homeowner and get you the compensation you deserve.
Your insurance claim has been denied
When an insurance company or a government agency refuses to make a fair settlement with you, despite your medical bills and lost wages, a personal injury lawyer can help you fight for what you deserve.
