Do I Need a Lawyer After a Car Accident?

If you’ve been in a car accident recently, you may be wondering if you should hire a lawyer. If there have been few damages and no one was injured, then your regular insurance company can usually handle the details. But if you have suffered injuries you should always call a car accident lawyer first before speaking with any insurance company.

Not only will you obtain qualified advice by calling an attorney, but they can also provide you with peace of mind knowing that your questions will be answered, and that you haven’t missed anything.

This is perhaps most true if you have been involved in a car accident that has resulted in broken bones or hospitalization, you will want to immediately hire a lawyer. You should also hire a lawyer if you’ve experienced any paralysis, whether temporary or permanent or if anyone one in your family died during the accident. These are all critical situations where you want to understand your rights before speaking with any insurance companies.

An attorney can also help you understand what you might not know. It’s a funny way to think about the situation, but you don’t necessarily know what you don’t know. Injury attorneys live and breathe these situations every day, and they know the industry inside and out. There are consumers who are hurt and taken advantage of everyday because they believe they understand the whole process, or worse, they trust the insurance company that has only one goal – pay as little as possible.

Consumers are taken advantage of everyday because simply aren’t aware that there may be special issues involving a car accident involving trucks, commercial vehicles, pedestrians, government owned vehicles, or if the accident occurred on private property or in construction zones.

There is also often paperwork and forms can be complicated to fill out with technical, legal, or medical jargon involved. You may discover that the limits of your liability insurance may be low and don’t cover all your injuries or the loss of your car. However, there may be other opportunities out there to help you that aren’t immediately obvious.

If you feel that you need to hire a lawyer to help you go over confusing forms or paperwork, or your medical bills and expenses are piling up after a bad car accident, it’s important to immediately hire one and we believe we are the best.
