Do I Need an Auto Collision Lawyer? The Ultimate Legal Guide for Car Accidents

Auto collision lawyer

September 1 2020 - To survive a car crash is a blessing. After all, about†1.35 million people die†each year due to a car accident. Between 20 and 50 million more sustain injuries, with many resulting in disabilities.

However, the repercussions of a car accident can be long-lasting, more so if you got injured. Even if youíre not injured, a car crash can be a life-altering event.

Thatís when you need to ask the question, "Do I need an auto collision lawyer?"

Many people donít know when itís necessary to hire an attorney after a†car accident. Most prefer to let the insurance companies of the parties involved handle the situation. If you go this route, you might not be compensated fairly for the injuries and damages you suffered.

Here are some of the reasons why you should consider hiring a car accident attorney.

Don't Leave Yourself at the Mercy of the Insurance Company

While we want to believe that the insurance company is on our side, donít forget that theyíre a business first and foremost. Theyíre always looking out for their bottom line and paying you money cuts into their profits.

Theyíll try every trick in the book to keep the compensation you should receive as low as possible.

They may attempt to settle the case quickly while youíre still under a lot of stress. Or the reverse can happen, theyíll try to drag out the case and let your medical bills pile up. It will get to the point that youíre so desperate for cash that youíll take whatever they offer.

Without an advocate by your side, youíre helpless to these shenanigans.

Talk to an Auto Collision Lawyer If Things Are Confusing

Youíre probably wondering, "when do I need to†speak to my car accident lawyer?"

You should talk to an auto collision injury lawyer as soon as you can. In the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident, youíre in a haze. You have all these questions popping up in your head.

How am I going to pay for medical expenses? Whose fault was it, am I going to jail? How can I earn money now that Iím injured and canít go to work?

An attorney can answer your questions and get you the support that you need. You donít have to deal with this alone. Instead of stressing out about the claims process, you can focus on how to recover physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Youíll also need someone to guide you in the investigation and the gathering of evidence. Your claim is only as strong as the evidence that you can provide. A lawyer will make sure that you donít miss anything crucial to the case.

Get the Compensation You Deserve

Most people donít understand all the damages that theyíre entitled to. It doesnít help that insurance companies will attempt to downplay your situation to reduce your compensation.

Aside from your medical bills, you should also be able to recover your lost wages. You may also be able to claim damages from the pain and emotional distress brought about by the accident.

What to Do After a Car Accident

If youíve been in a car accident, after your physical safety, you also need to preserve your legal and financial security. The most important call to make (after 911) is to your auto collision lawyer.
