For car accident victims, even if the crash was caused by another party, it can be upsetting, confusing, and disorienting. You may have been injured, your property is probably damaged, and you’re going to have insurance companies and police reports to deal with. Even if the accident wasn’t your fault, one way or another, you’re going to be in a world of hurt. Should you get a lawyer?
We simply cannot stress enough that the answer here is a resounding, “Yes!”
Even if the police report faults the other party, don’t think for a moment that they or their insurance company isn’t going to try to blame you in some way, shape, or form.
Hire an Experienced, Reputable Attorney
So, getting a lawyer is essential. Not convinced? We’re going to introduce you to a number of reasons why you need to get a lawyer – preferably one that is experienced in personal injury cases – to represent you, your rights, your assets, etc.
Reasons Why You Need an Attorney for Your Personal Injury Claim
- An attorney can handle all of the legal and financial paperwork so that you don’t have to. Now you can put the accident in your rearview mirror (so to speak) and move on with the rest of your life.
- Pesky letters and phone calls from the insurance company representing the other party can be a real nuisance and they might try to trick you into saying certain things that hurt your claim. If you have an attorney, you can direct all of the letters and calls to them.
- Without an attorney, the insurance company most likely will ask you to sign a general release of information to access your prior medical history. Do not sign this and hire an attorney immediately.
- Without an attorney, the risk of financial loss increases exponentially.
Are You Required to Have an Attorney?
No, an attorney is not an absolute requirement, even if you’ve been injured in an accident or incident. It is, however, the best course of action in order to understand your rights and prevent additional financial loss… and make sure you are compensated fairly.
Paperwork is mind boggling. Car Insurance companies over reach. Hospital bills are frightening. Your own health insurance carrier can be a problem. The adjuster and/or lawyer representing the other party can be intimidating. Court is scary. You don’t have to worry about any of that with a reputable attorney on your side. They work with you throughout your claim and make sure your rights are protected.
