How Can a Car Accident Attorney in Belmont Help You?
Victims of motor vehicle collisions must file a civil lawsuit to make a damage claim. While many car accident cases do end up settling with no need for litigation, it is the risk of a lawsuit that brings the insurer to the table to negotiate compensation.
If you settle your case, you’ll have to sign a waiver of liability promising not to sue. If you do not settle, your case will move forward through the court system. Timely filing of a lawsuit is essential, even if settlement negotiations are ongoing, as you do not want your claim to be barred by the statute of limitations.
A car accident lawyer in Belmont will help you to decide where, when, and how to file a civil lawsuit. Your attorney will also assist you in:
- Deciding who it is best for you to pursue a claim against (there may be multiple parties liable for losses).
- Conducting an investigation to obtain the strongest evidence you can to make your case for compensation.
- Dealing with all court rules and procedural requirements for filing your case and moving it forward.
- Negotiating a settlement with the insurance companies involved in your claim or, when no settlement is reached, making a compelling argument on why a jury should award you compensation.
These are just a few of many things a car accident lawyer does for clients in Belmont who have been harmed.
