Do I Need an Attorney for My Car Accident Claim?


It may seem tempting to try to handle your car accident by yourself, particularly if you are not sure about the types of injuries you have sustained in an accident. However, far too many people undervalue the extent of their legal claim and could jeopardize their ability to recover full and fair compensation for their injuries.

A car accident can have a significant impact on the rest of your life and this is why you need to take it seriously and retain a personal injury lawyer who cares about you and your future. In order to avoid undervaluing your claim or accepting a low-ball insurance settlement offer, consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident has happened.

This gives you the best possible opportunity to understand all of your options and to begin crafting a compelling legal claim. Gathering all of the evidence and evaluating your medical records can assist you in figuring out how to protect yourself in this situation. There are many different things on the line when it comes to a personal injury claim for a car accident. Your attorney can play a crucial role in helping you navigate this complex system.

First of all, your attorney can be the go-between for the insurance company. If the insurance company is dragging their feet, your lawyer can help to apply pressure so that your claim is moved through more quickly. Furthermore, your attorney is likely to be familiar with the negotiation and settlement tactics often used by the other side or by the insurance company in question. This gives you a better chance of walking away with a settlement that is more in line with your individual needs and giving you the peace of mind you need to focus on recovery.

You do need an attorney for your car accident claim any time that the injuries are severe or if you are not sure about the value of your claim. Scheduling a consultation with an experienced car accident attorney may be the only way for you to identify how to best represent yourself and how to avoid some of the most common missteps affecting people who have to file a personal injury claim.
