Car accidents are a startling experience that can have a lasting impact on physical and mental well being. When people are injured in a car accident they will often work directly with their insurance company for a settlement. While this can most certainly be done, working with an attorney after a car accident can be in your best interest.
Here are five reasons why you should consider hiring an auto accident attorney.
1. Insurance companies do not always have your best interest at heart
Insurance companies are businesses that have many factors to consider when assessing your claims, including their bottom line. Because of this, your interests and theirs may not always align. When you work with an auto accident attorney, you are hiring a representative for you and your best interests. This ensures someone is always in your corner and advocating on your behalf to reach a fair settlement.
2. Claims are not straightforward
When people think of car accident claims, their mind may be immediately drawn to receiving compensation to cover medical bills and help with injuries. But, there are many more damages that you may deserve such as pain and suffering, emotional distress or lost wages. Settlement cases aren’t straightforward and working with an attorney will make sure you’re getting all of the damages you’re entitled to.
3. Filing a claim is a complex process
Filing an insurance claim for a car accident involves a lot of paperwork, phone calls, negotiating with adjusters, paying bills and reviewing and understanding policies, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. When you’ve been injured in a car accident, the last thing you want to do (or should do), is overburden yourself with the process of filing a claim. When you work with an attorney, they take care of this process for you so you can focus on healing and getting back on your feet. Your personal health and well being should always be a priority.
4. Proving liability is complicated
One of the most complicated parts of a car accident injury claim is proving that another person’s negligence caused your injuries. This is a crucial part of an accident claim. It’s impossible to get the compensation you deserve if you can’t demonstrate that your injuries are a the result of someone else’s negligence. When you work with an experienced car accident attorney they will be able sift through the evidence and put a together a strong case to help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
