Contacting an attorney is vitally important if you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of an auto accident, whether as a driver, passenger or pedestrian. This can make the difference in Getting the Compensation You Deserve!
Following a car accident it is understandable for an individual to want to settle the matter quickly and move on as soon as possible. As a result, many people are tempted to try to take care of all issues--including legal issues--without getting help from an attorney. Before proceeding on your own, it is crucial to understand the pitfalls of trying to handle your case without legal representation.
You can be sure that those representing the negligent party--usually an insurance company--will be lawyers working to pay out as little as possible. Insurance companies and their attorneys often calculate the value of your claim based on how aggressive they feel the injured party will fight for full compensation for the harm caused. When you retain a lawyer to fight for you, you are essentially ensuring that you are not taken advantage of by the other side.
You should retain an attorney who has vast experience in handling car accident cases and one who is able to stand up to the insurance company at all costs. If the other side is not cooperating and your case requires a law suit being filed, the attorney must be prepared to take the case to court to ensure full and fair recovery. Knowing that you are willing to go as far as necessary to ensure justice by obtaining experienced legal counsel often means that the opposing side will deal more reasonably right from the start.
