Why You Should Call an Attorney After a Car Accident

call an attorney after a car accidentIt’s not unusual for people to question whether or not they should call an attorney after they have been involved in a car accident. The question most often comes up when the accident results in property damage or injury. There is no doubt that foregoing the hiring of an attorney will save you some money, but a lawyer skilled in representing people after automobile accidents can help you in many circumstances. Here are the top reasons to seriously consider hiring legal representation.

1. There Are Severe Injuries

If you or someone in your vehicle suffered severe injuries in the accident, you want an attorney. Your lawyer will have experience in personal injury law and can help you fight that insurance company and their lawyers. You can expect your attorney to act as your advocate from the beginning of your case to the end.

2. Liability Is In Dispute

When you hear the phrase “disputed liability” coming from the other party’s insurance company, it means that the insurance company is arguing the fact that their client was at fault for the accident. If this is the case, they do not plan on paying any claim you have filed. An accident attorney can gather and show proof that the other party was at fault, if this was the case, and help you stand up to the insurance company.

3. A Refusal to Pay

The insurance company may be refusing to pay a fair amount or any amount altogether. You don’t have to fight the insurance company for a settlement when you have an attorney. Your lawyer will do it for you. An experienced lawyer will determine why the insurance company is refusing to pay and help you get what you deserve under law.

The list of prior client settlement results and client reviews/testimonials, do not constitute a promise of any particular result in any particular case, as each and every case is unique. Each case was handled on its own merit, and the outcome of any case cannot be predicted by a lawyer or law firms past results.

If a recovery or settlement by trial is made, the client will be responsible for costs advanced in addition to attorney fees. Client remains responsible for costs, expenses and disbursements, including medical bills, within the scope of representation.
