The Benefits of Hiring a Car Accident Lawyer
Many people will tell you that you should hire a lawyer to represent you after a car accident, but how can a car accident lawyer help you?
1. No fee until we recover for you
In all cases, you pay absolutely nothing until we recover compensation on your behalf. This enables you to benefit from the best legal representation immediately without any worries about how to pay for it.
2. Communication with Insurance Companies
Your accident and claims almost always involve multiple insurance companies. This includes your own, as well as the insurance company for the at-fault driver. But it can also involve issues with your health insurance, as well as other third parties who will be looking to protect their own interests as a result of the accident. The at-fault driver’s insurance company will always be looking to pay you as little as possible for your injuries and other harms. Even your own insurance companies could seek reimbursement for treatment or benefits that you have not considered.
Our experienced lawyers know how to effectively communicate with insurance companies to protect YOUR interests and obtain the highest compensation for your injuries and losses. With a car accident lawyer working on your behalf, you won’t have to worry about dealing with insurance companies on your own or obtaining the benefits and compensation to which you are entitled.
3. Get Compensated Faster
Not only do our lawyers do most of the talking, but they can also help you get your much-needed cash sooner. It is in the interest of insurance companies to seek excuses not to pay, pay less than they should, or delay compensating injured victims. They’ll drag out the process so that you’ll give up on receiving proper compensation.
Our car accident lawyers have worked for the insurance companies and now use that experience for YOUR benefit. We are familiar with the claims and legal process, know when an insurance agency is not upfront, and ensure that you receive what you deserve on time.
4. Build a Case
Our car accident lawyers know how to build your case by gathering crucial evidence at the earliest possible stages. This includes police reports, photographs, witness accounts, medical records, and other evidence that can significantly compromise your case if not gathered efficiently and in a timely manner This evidence is then used to prove who was at fault, fairly assess your harms and strengthen your case.
Our lawyers are experienced at interpreting your medical records and working with your medical providers to assess that your medical care is managed and well-documented. Medical records are essential to proving that you have suffered pain or disability as a result of an accident and entitled to the monetary compensation to which you are entitled.
5. Negotiate on Your Behalf
Following an injury, the last thing you want to do is negotiate with anyone. It is also difficult for you to know what is fair compensation for your inuries and losses, knowing how and when to request that compensation or even when it might be necessary to put your case into a legal suit. Hiring a car accident lawyer takes the pressure off your shoulders to negotiate and takes the guesswork out of the value of your claim. Instead, you can focus on healing.
6. Avoiding Pitfalls
In many cases, the rights and interests of third parties, such as health insurers, workers’ compensation insurers, Medicare, or Medicaid, are implicated in the resolution of your claim. Failing to recognize these interests can adversely affect your case and significantly compromise your ability to receive compensation. Our lawyers are experienced in identifying these issues and managing them to your benefit.
