Why Contacting A Lawyer After A Car Accident is Important

When you find yourself in a car accident you are usually worried about a thousand things like calling 911, getting the other person’s information and shocked by what just occurred that calling a lawyer might be the last thing on your mind.

However, after you are done with all of the above, calling your lawyer can help you save thousands of dollars and get the fair settlement amount you deserve from your accident.

Dealing with the Insurance Company
Although having insurance is quite important, insurance companies are still after their own profits and that can lead to minimizing the amount of money they will pay out to your claim.
Calling a lawyer right after the accident happens can help you have yourself represented accordingly where the lawyer will: 
  • Assist in preparing your statement 
  • Negotiate with the Insurance Company for you 
  • Handle the claim details
  • Get you the best deal possible

Proving Liability for your Injuries
After getting into an accident, there are many things that can happen to you that could cause lifelong effects, whether it is pain, discomfort, or emotional trauma. A lawyer can help you get the compensation needed for all those.

Part of the process to get the compensation needed is to interview witnesses of the accident, review medical records, and reconstruct the scene. This is vital especially when the other party can attempt to shift the narrative and build a persuasive argument against yours.

Negotiating a Fair Value for Settlement
Insurance companies will avoid accident cases from being taken to court and offer a lower settlement for the cost of the accidents. Hiring a lawyer can help you present true values for the injuries experienced – from physical to emotional trauma and suffering the accident has caused.
When aligned with a good lawyer, you are able to be represented in the best manner possible and get the best value you deserve.

When to Call Lawyer
It is vital to call your lawyer as soon as the accident happens, even before reaching out to your insurance company. You may also consult with a lawyer after the fact, if the insurance company isn’t willing to pay or has offered a low settlement for the accident.
