Why you should hire an attorney after your car accident
So you’ve been injured in a car accident. Now what?
Well, if you haven’t seen a doctor, stop reading this and get yourself checked out. Right now. Your health is important, and if you’re not properly examined you could be putting your health – and your claim – in jeopardy.
But if you have been checked out and are wondering what to do now, we suggest you hire an attorney.
Free Consultation. You can’t argue with seeing an attorney when they’re offering to review your car accident with you for free. I mean, you’ve probably already racked up some hefty medical bills. At this point, you’ve got nothing to lose (except for about an hour of your time) and potentially everything to gain if they offer to take on your case.
Contingency Fee. Most attorneys offer their services on a contingency basis. Meaning, if they can’t prove your case, they don’t get paid. It also means they have some serious skin in the game, maybe even as much as you do. They’ll be working extra-hard to reach a settlement for your car accident.
Negotiation Tactics. Let’s face it – unless you’ve got a background similar to those of most reputable personal injury attorneys, you are simply not qualified to deal with insurance companies when it comes to your claim. Leave it to the professionals. They do this for a living – so let ‘em. They’ll know what to expect from the insurance companies so you’re not blindsided, low-balled or bullied. And they’ll know the tricks of the trade to reach your settlement.
Property Damage. If you were in a car accident, your vehicle probably suffered some damage. You may even find that your vehicle isn’t even fit for the road anymore. An experienced personal injury attorney can help with getting a rental car, as well as rental car reimbursement. They can also assist in getting you compensation for your vehicle damages – even if your car’s a total loss – and reimbursement of your collision deductible.
Knowledge of Personal Injury Laws. Again, unless you went to law school you’re not going to be well-versed in personal injury law. And since personal injury law differs from state to state, it’s pretty tricky. That’s why you need an attorney. A personal injury attorney can help determine liability, dispute traffic tickets and file your claim before the statute of limitations runs out. That’s right, folks – you’ve got a deadline to file a claim. So don’t wait.
Peace of Mind. You’ve already been injured in a car accident. Isn’t that enough? Why would you want to take on the added stress of trying to figure out how to settle your case? Hire an attorney to carry that burden of proof for you. Let them deal with the headache of insurance adjusters and claims statuses. Spend your time recovering.
Being in a car accident can be very traumatizing. Make sure you’re taken care of. Hire an experienced personal injury attorney who will work for you.
