Why A Personal Injury Lawyer Is Needed After An Accident

Contributed by Tony Lafazanis — If you have been in an auto accident, it is vital to talk to a personal injury lawyer prior to making any other call. Even though you pay an insurance company to protect you, they do not work for you and their job is simply to make a profit for their company. By hiring a lawyer, you will know that you have someone who is on your side and represents your best interests.

Lawyers usually offer a free consultation for accident victims. During that visit, the personal injury lawyer will review your case and give you an honest opinion of whether you should pursue a claim or not. With experience backing them, they will use the law to help you reach a settlement that is fair for you and covers most, if not all, of your medical bills. Oftentimes, the lawyer can get a settlement for you without having to go to court. If this is possible, you will want to make sure you have a contract with the lawyer that covers fees. You will also want to know what will happen if a jury does not find the other party responsible for the accident.

Another benefit you will have if you opt to hire a lawyer is that you may be able to get pain and suffering in your compensation package. If you take a settlement right away, you may not get money that covers loss of work, all medical bills, or even the full value of your vehicle. Remember that insurance companies use their own adjusters for a reason.

If you try to negotiate with both your insurance company and the company of the negligent person, you will have lost a significant amount of time. There is only so much time before the statute of limitations runs out. Lawyers will help keep your claim on track and get the evidence that you will need in in order to fight the insurance companies.

Accidents can bring both emotional and physical pain. Emotions have the ability to cloud your vision and cause you to rush into a decision. When you hire legal assistance, you can recover from the physical injuries, as well as the emotional ones. A good law firm will do the hard work and collect reports from police, statements from you, and visit the scene of the accident to prove that negligence was involved in the case. There is no need to fight the battle alone. Let a personal injury lawyer help you, standing by your side every step of the way.
