When to Get an Attorney for a Car Accident

Never been in an auto wreck before? Then you probably don’t know when to get an attorney for a car accident. If your collision was fairly minor, such as a fender-bender, you may not need to hire an attorney.

You’ll file a claim with your insurer, and the insurer will cover the damage to your car and any minor medical expenses you incurred. You may have to pay a deductible, but life should quickly go back to normal.

What if your crash was moderate to serious, though? That’s when you will want to contact a car accident lawyer.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer for a Car Crash?

When you’ve sustained serious injuries, you will probably want to file a personal injury claim against the party responsible for the collision. Your damages are likely to be expensive and could quickly exceed the limits of your policy. A serious auto wreck can have a devastating financial impact on your life.

Here are some common financial damages an auto collision can cause:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Physical therapy
  • Mental health treatment
  • Transportation costs

Here are some non-economic damages you can be compensated for after a car accident:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of life enjoyment
  • The way the crash has impacted your family

Your attorney will help you file a personal injury claim, prove the accident was the fault of another party, and negotiate fair compensation with insurance companies. Attempting to handle all this on your own can lead to stress, and you’ll be less likely to get the full compensation you deserve.
