Free Consultation - What to Expect in Your First Meeting
Fayetteville, AR Accident & Injury Lawyer
If you have been injured or are working to secure Social Security Disability Benefits, taking the first step to meet with a lawyer can seem overwhelming. At the Law Office of Jason M. Hatfield, we want to take the stress and anxiety out of the legal process for our clients. We begin the process with a no-obligation, confidential meeting so we can answer your questions. Our goal in the first meeting is not to pressure you to sign up; it’s simply to help you understand how Arkansas law applies to your situation, and give you options for moving forward with your case should you choose to do so.
A lot of my clients say “I don’t want to sue anyone”
Most people have a lot of hesitant about trying to “sue” the person or people responsible for their accident. It’s important for you to understand that are not suing any individual person, rather you are working to settle your claim with the insurance company. Accidents happen, and that’s why drivers, businesses, home-owners and other parties that may end up being responsible for an injury carry insurance. However, many insurance companies will work to deny or minimize the claims of injured people to protect their profit margins. That is why it’s critical to have an attorney to protect your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
Your Own Health Insurance May Deny Your Claim
Another important thing to understand when considering whether or not to hire an injury lawyer is that your own health insurance provider may deny your claims from treatments where you were hurt in an accident. If you have received a letter from your health insurance provider asking about either your auto insurance or the insurance of the other driver, contact our office today. Having a lawyer on your side will make sure that your hospital bills are paid and that you have access to on-going care.
Hurt at Work? You Have Options
If you have been hurt at work you will likely file a workers’ compensation claim. The workers’ compensation process can be confusing and complex. In addition to getting the compensation you are entitled for missed work, people who are unable to return to work may be eligible for re-training or other educational opportunities. Having a workers’ compensation lawyer on your side ensures that your claim is handled correctly and that you have access to all of your options under the workers’ compensation laws.
Denied Social Security Benefits? We Can Help
The Social Security system is large and slow-moving, and the people who rely on it often need help right away. Don’t get caught up in the system and have your claim delayed or denied; working with a Social Security Disability lawyer will help you cut through the red tape and get the benefits that you deserve.
