If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you have two choices. You can handle the claim yourself or rely on an experienced attorney to help handle it for you. Here are some reasons why it makes sense to hire an attorney for your car accident claim:
Experience and Expertise
Even if this isn’t your first car accident, it’s doubtful that you have handled as many car accident claims as an experienced accident attorney. There is nothing simple about a car accident claim. Without an attorney on your side, you’re at the mercy of the insurance companies and the lawyers they have on their side. Insurance companies are in the business of making money. This means they are trying to pay out as little on your claim as possible. Having an attorney on your side can level the playing field. The attorney will use their expertise to ensure you get the compensation to which you are entitled.
Knowing How to Deal With Insurance Companies
An experienced accident attorney knows how to deal with insurance companies because they do it every day. Insurance companies don’t make it easy to settle your claim. They’re hoping that if you’ve been injured, you’ll be inclined to accept the first settlement offer. An attorney can help make sure you’re treated like a person and not just a claim number. An attorney can handle all the hurdles put up by the insurance company, and you can focus on healing.
Proving who was at-fault in a car accident case can be a complicated matter involving different types of evidence. It’s not easy to put together this evidence on your own. Attorneys are skilled at collecting and effectively presenting the evidence to ensure your case has the best chance at success.
Maximizing the Value of Your Claim
The first offer from the insurance company is not their best. But how much money will help compensate you for your injuries? Medical bills and lost wages add up, and maybe you’re not ready to go back to work. An attorney with experience handling car accident claims can ensure that you are fairly compensated for your losses because this isn’t their first time negotiating a settlement.
