If you were recently in a car accident and are unsure if you need a lawyer, hopefully, we can help you clear the air. Here are a few instances where you want to consider hiring a lawyer.
If you are injured
If you were injured by another driver and had to seek medical attention, you should get an accident attorney. They will know how to get you the money you deserve from your injuries. This will hopefully ensure that your medical bills are covered and you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket.
If you lost wages due to injury
If you were injured in an accident and then couldn’t work, you will want an attorney to not only fight for your medical bills and pain and suffering but your lost wages as well. An accident attorney will know what to do for you to recoup the wages you lost when the injuries you suffered in the accident make you miss work.
The other driver’s insurance company doesn’t find them at fault and refuses to pay
Many insurance companies will believe their policyholder over you (after all, they are the ones paying their insurance premiums). Insurance companies are businesses and, as such, want to get away with paying out as little as possible. This may hold true even if the police report puts their insured at fault.
If it is a large claim (thousands of dollars)
A few hundred dollars is a claim that you might be able to handle on your own, however, once it reaches the thousands, it is the time to seek help. An attorney will know how to fight your case to maximize your financial result without you getting cheated by large insurance companies.
It’s been a while since the accident
Large insurance companies like to wait it out, hoping you will be desperate to pay your bills. They know when you get desperate you are more willing to settle. Don’t let this happen to you. An experienced attorney will know how to handle this for you and can guide you through the process.
If any of these situations pertain to you, you should hire an accident attorney. They will know how to guide you, protect you, and fight for you.
