Do I Need a Lawyer for a Car Accident?
Working with an attorney when you’ve been in a car accident isn’t a requirement if you are hoping to file a personal injury claim, but it can be tremendously helpful to those who aren’t versed in tort law or those who don’t have the time to deal with the details of the litigation process.
If you choose to hire a lawyer to work on your claim, you’ll be able to spend your time recovering while we conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of your crash and handle the claim and negotiations with the insurance company.
It might seem easy to establish liability in a car accident, especially when you’ve been struck by another driver. While the other driver typically is found to be partially culpable for the collision, whether that’s due to drunk driving, aggressive driving, or distracted driving, accidents are sometimes beyond the control of the other driver.
On occasion, parts manufacturers and vehicle technicians can be responsible for the crash if they’ve installed faulty parts or failed to issue a recall on a defective part, giving consumers an opportunity to get the defective part fixed before a crash occurs.
Government road authorities could also have played a part in the collision if road debris, missing street signs, or other road hazards they are responsible for contributed to your crash.
Having the help of an attorney can ensure that the correct party is held accountable for his or her actions so you are able to maximize the compensation you receive.
Help Handling the Insurance Company
You might think that filing a claim with the insurer for the compensation you deserve would be simple. Unfortunately, this is not usually the case. Many claimants find that their claims are denied, despite providing the necessary information and documentation to support their cases.
When you’re healing from an injury you sustained in a car accident, the last thing you need is to be on the phone with money-hungry insurance companies who don’t have your best interests in mind. Having an attorney who isn’t intimidated by the insurers and will fight for the funds you’re entitled to can give you peace of mind so you don’t have to worry unnecessarily.
