Questions to Ask a Lawyer After a Car Accident
After a car crash, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed and confused. However, it’s important that you take the right steps. Being smart about what you do now will improve your chance of recovering compensation for your damages.
To that end, you’ll likely want to become familiar with the questions to ask a lawyer after a car accident. Seeking the right type of information will ensure you are well-prepared and that you choose the right lawyer.
Our team at Haffner Law understands that this may be a bit confusing if you’ve never been through it before. We’re here to help, and we’ve put together some questions to consider below.
Do I Have a Viable Case?
The first, and likely most important, thing to find out is whether you have the grounds to take legal action. For example, if you were the one who caused the crash, you may not be able to file a claim seeking compensation from the other party. Your attorney will evaluate the details of the case to figure out whether you have a viable claim.
What Evidence Will You Need?
To prove your blamelessness and make sure the insurance company provides you with the compensation you deserve, your lawyer will need to build the strongest case possible. To do so, we’ll need a few key pieces of evidence.
This may include the police report, any photographs or videos of the crash, associated medical records, and the contact information of any witnesses.
Should I Talk to the Insurance Company?
You likely already know that, to get the compensation you’re seeking, you’ll have to be in touch with the insurance company at some point. However, your attorney will likely advise you to let him or her handle the communications.
The insurance company may try to trap you in a recorded statement in which you accidentally make yourself liable, or it may try to pressure you into accepting a lowball settlement. To prevent such outcomes, your attorney can handle the discussions on your behalf.
