People are often hesitant to call an attorney after a car crash, even one that causes serious injuries. Sometimes this is because they trust that the insurance company is there to help them move forward; they have been paying their premiums, after all.
What many don’t realize is that a skillful car accident attorney can be the difference between getting the damages you need to recover and being left to cover the bills on your own. But how exactly does an attorney help you earn a fair recovery? Allow us to explain.
Taking the Stress Away
Car crashes are complicated, especially when they cause serious injuries. Every car crash requires mountains of paperwork, hours of phone calls, days of reviewing evidence, and tense negotiations with the insurance company. We believe that when you’re injured, you shouldn’t have to worry about all that.
When you hire an attorney, they’ll handle all of that for you, so you don’t have to worry about arguing with the insurance company while you’re in the hospital.
An Advisor on Your Side
A skilled attorney has helped others like you in their time of need. That experience, combined with a deep understanding of how insurance companies work, allows them to give you the legal advice you need to minimize your assigned fault and avoid some of the most notorious tricks and traps.
Earning a Fair Recovery
Finally, an experienced attorney can help you calculate the full damages you are entitled to. Often, the insurance company will make an initial offer far below what you need to pay your current and future medical bills. Your attorney can calculate the full value of your medical bills, property damage, and the pain and suffering you experienced as a result.
For these reasons, those who hire an attorney are far more likely to receive a fair settlement after a car accident than those who try to represent themselves. Not only that, but those who hire an attorney overwhelmingly receive a larger, more just settlement than the small handful who successfully negotiate by themselves.
