Car accident

Car accidents can be devastating and if you have never been in this position before, you may not be aware of your rights or the insurance claim process. Therefore, it is imperative to hire an attorney. You should hire a car accident attorney to:

Investigate and gather information
Sometimes car accidents are fender benders but they can be fatal as well. An investigation may be necessary to decide liability for injuries and property damage as a result of the crash. A car accident attorney is knowledgeable in the investigation of the accident and gathering pertinent information and evidence for a successful car accident claim.

Handle the insurance claim process
Typically, insurance companies try their best to work in their favor instead of yours. However, when represented by a lawyer, rightful compensation is more easily gained. The insurance company will not delay claims or offer less compensation with an attorney involved.

Negotiate a settlement
If your insurance claim is approved, there is a high chance that you may not receive a fair and reasonable offer right away. An insurance company will try their best to minimize the compensation. An experienced car accident attorney will know how to determine the value of your claim and negotiate a fair settlement.

Represent you in court
Unfortunately, not all car accident cases are resolved through insurance claims. A personal injury lawsuit may be necessary to recover compensation. An experienced car accident attorney will represent you and handle all legal formalities.

It’s Not Clear Who is Liable for the Accident

When there is disagreement about who caused the accident, it is best to hire an experienced car accident attorney. An attorney will help work through the evidence and present a case in your favor.

You Don’t Know How Much Your Claim is Worth

Usually, an insurance company tries to settle accident cases for as little as possible. There is a risk that you may be persuaded to settle for a no or little compensation. However, an experienced car accident attorney will estimate the value of your case and negotiate in your favor.

Your Injuries Are Serious

If you incurred serious injuries in a car accident, it is advisable to consult with an experienced car accident attorney as soon as possible. An attorney will enable you to receive compensation for your medical bills and other damages.

car accident

Car accidents can be devastating, but even more overwhelming once authorities and insurance companies become involved. People struggle with the thought of whether they may be obligated to go to court after a car accident.

Whether or not you go to court following an accident will depend on whether you receive a court summons or decide to sue the other driver for your injuries or damages.

Court Summons

Although you were not at fault, if the other driver sues you after a car accident, you may receive a court summons that requires you to appear in court. Therefore, it is in your best interest to consult with a car accident attorney after an accident to help with the legal process.

If you were not at fault for the accident, suing could be an option for you in recovering compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages.

Negotiations Prior to Court

Filing a lawsuit does not necessarily mean you will end up in court. In fact, filing a lawsuit may cause the liable party to negotiate and for a reasonable settlement.

When to Go to Court

You ultimately go to court when the liable party or insurance company is not willing to make a fair settlement or is unwilling to compensate at all.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence, you need an experienced car accident attorney by your side. A qualified and experienced car accident attorney will help you deal with the insurance companies and secure compensation from the responsible parties.
