When to Get an Attorney for a Car Accident
Many people who are involved in a vehicle collision know that they should file a car accident claim to recover their damages, but they don’t always know when to get an attorney for an auto wreck. In most cases, it’s generally safe to skip hiring an attorney if you’re in a very minor fender bender and have limited damages.
For all other auto wreck cases, it’s typically best to at least contact a lawyer to discuss your case. Why waste your time talking with a lawyer? For one, attorneys at our firm offer free case reviews. It’s worth it to find out whether your case is serious enough to warrant an attorney’s help—the discussion is free, so you don’t have anything to lose.
If you do have a serious injury case, hiring an attorney is imperative to winning the compensation you deserve.
Understanding How Your Attorney Can Help You
It’s true that you can file an injury case on your own, but is this in your best interests? It’s common knowledge that insurance companies take advantage of those who file claims without the help of an attorney. They might try to offer you the lowest settlement they think they can get away with.
When you have a lawyer on your team, you can bet that no one will able to get away with paying you unfairly for a car accident you didn’t cause.
Your attorney can help in other ways, as well, including the following:
- Investigate your auto accident to determine the cause
- Find evidence that proves fault
- Gather witness statements
- Assist you with documentation of your injuries, medical expenses, and non-financial losses
- Give you legal advice
- Possibly take your case to court, if needed
