If you are the victim of a negligent driver and sustain significant injuries and/or damages, it’s always a good idea to hire an auto accident attorney—and almost always a mistake not to. Here’s why…
Why You Need a Car Accident Attorney
Auto accident attorneys have in-depth knowledge about relevant laws and procedural rules affecting your case. They will advise you of statutes of limitations, filing deadlines, special exceptions, and so forth. They will also handle the paperwork for you, which can be voluminous.
An experienced auto accident attorney will also gather the necessary evidence to support your claim, such as police reports, medical records and bills, witness statements, and employment and lost-wages information. They will calculate how much monetary compensation you deserve and will deal with the insurance company’s lowball offers, delay tactics, and possible twisting of the facts.
An attorney can also file a lawsuit on your behalf and anticipate possible defenses raised by the defendant. They will also be familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of opposing attorneys and the tendencies of judges.
An auto accident attorney is your personal advocate. They will make sure your story is heard and that you are properly compensated for your losses. If cost is a concern, most attorneys are paid on a contingency-fee basis, meaning they only get paid if there is a successful resolution of their client’s case.
If you are injured due to another driver’s negligence, never go it alone; it’s a losing proposition. Contact an auto accident attorney to protect your rights so you can focus on healing and getting your life back in order.
