Do I need a car accident lawyer?

by | Feb 20, 2020 | Car Accidents |

People in car accidents can often suffer from serious injuries. Some of these injuries can include back pains and strains, shoulder injuries, broken bones, concussions, lacerations, and even loss of mobility. Car accident victims who suffer injuries are entitled to compensation. Rightful compensation may include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Insurance companies do not want to pay you what you are entitled to

It can be very difficult for you to receive compensation without a strong understanding of the law and your rights, and proper legal representation. It is no secret that insurance companies will regularly challenge who was at fault for an accident and often minimize the seriousness of your injury in an attempt to reduce the amount that you are paid.  Insurance companies often low-ball and challenge victims of car accidents to avoid paying them rightful compensation. They will question who was at fault for the accident, even if it is obvious that you are the victim. They may also question and diminish the severity of your injuries.

What can a car accident lawyer do to help me?

An aggressive and dedicated accident lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation into the facts surrounding the incident and will also document your injuries and other damages using medical records and bills and financial and employment records. Moreover, a car accident attorney will be able to determine if insurance companies are engaging in victim-blaming tactics and fight for the compensation you deserve. Without a personal injury lawyer, it is possible that you may accept a settlement offer that is much smaller than what you actually deserve under the law to cover your injuries and other damages.

Can I represent myself?

By hiring an accident attorney to handle your claim, you can avoid  settling your case before you know the full extent of your injuries and damages. A lot of people who decide to negotiate their own claims end up settling way too early before they know the full extent of their injuries or have completely recovered from their car accident injuries. After you settle your claim, you cannot re-open it and go back to ask for more compensation. Once you have settled the claim, your case is closed.
