Many folks try to navigate the legal aftermath of a car accident on their own. This is especially true when they aren’t at fault for the crash. Unfortunately, I’ve watched this approach backfire again and again. Sometimes, even a seemingly simple accident can get complicated.
If you’re in this situation, don’t worry. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you understand what problems to anticipate, avoid liability, and ensure you receive full compensation.
Why hiring a personal injury lawyer might be your best move.
Choosing to hire a car accident lawyer can come with a lot of benefits. For starters, lawyers know the laws of your state and how they might affect your claim. Second, a car accident case might seem straight forward, but the unexpected can always come up. Third, it can be a challenge to get the full compensation you deserve after suffering an accident. For example, you might be left with car repair expenses and high medical bills. Even if those bills are covered, that doesn’t necessarily cover the full scope of your financial burden. You may also be eligible to collect:
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive Damages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Lost wages
This is why having a personal injury lawyer help you with your claim is vital.
Can a car accident lawyer help me deal with my insurance company?
With car accidents in particular, you’re dealing with aggressive insurance companies who don’t have your best interest at heart— even when you’re the victim. Sadly, no matter how badly you’ve been hurt, their primary focus will always be on paying out as little as possible. They may use your words against you in order to say you were at fault. They might find reason to say you don’t deserve the full amount you’re seeking. Or they may even try to deny your claim. Trust me, you don’t want to go up against that alone, especially during a time when you should be focused on healing.
In this case, your best chance at success is to hire a personal injury lawyer. We understand how insurance companies operate and can instruct you on what to say to investigators.
