Have you been injured in a car accident, and you think you might qualify to file an injury claim? You may even be wondering whether you should attempt to figure out the claim process on your own or whether you should hire a lawyer. Getting a lawyer is usually a good way to go, and we have rounded up three reasons why.
Check out the top three reasons you may want to call a lawyer for help with your injury case.
Let’s face it—you’re in no state to go running around your car accident scene gathering clues. You have just been injured in a crash, and you’re likely in the back of an ambulance on your way to the hospital. You probably don’t even know your last name right now, let alone have the mental capacity to think about taking pictures of the crash scene or interviewing witnesses.
So what do you do? How will you prove your car crash claim? A vehicle collision attorney can help you collect the evidence you need to prove fault. Your lawyer can interview witnesses, look for video surveillance footage of the crash, request the police report, partner with crash scene investigators, and more.
That’s a lot of work that you don’t want to be doing while you’re hobbling around on crutches.
Not a fan of mathematics? Good news: We can help you add up your car crash damages. It’s not easy to do hypothetical math, but we can do that, as well. We can help you guesstimate how much your medical bills, lost income, and other car accident damages will cost you in the future. Because guess what? You’re owed payment of any future financial losses, as well.
Your settlement check from the at-fault person’s insurance company should account for every single loss this accident caused you.
Claim paperwork is no one’s idea of a good time, but it is satisfying for your attorney when they complete your claim and get you the money you need for your accident. Your lawyer can put your claim together and submit it with the insurance company for you.
Your lawyer will then negotiate with the insurance company to see that you get what’s owed you and not a lowball settlement. If necessary, your lawyer can even take your case to court. Your attorney is willing to fight for you, because every accident victim who didn’t cause the crash that injured them deserves to receive justice.
You didn’t want to be injured in an accident, but it happened. Now is your chance to recover justice and financial compensation. You will need to reach out to a lawyer if you want help with your claim.
