Do I Need an Attorney for a Car Accident?

Car accidents and the physical injuries you sustain are inconvenient and take a considerable time to settle. If you have been in a car accident recently, you may be wondering whether you should hire a lawyer to assist you in handling the case. Attorneys are very helpful in determining liability. Read on to learn when you should consider hiring a lawyer for your case.

You should sit down with a personal injury lawyer who offers a free consultation to discuss your case before deciding about hiring an attorney. During the consultation, you will be able to explain the details of the accident, and the lawyer can advise you concerning pursuing a personal injury claim. It is unwise to speak with the insurance company without reaching out to an attorney first. The insurance company’s goal is usually to find a way to reduce or eliminate your compensation. Discussing your case with a personal injury lawyer ensures that your rights remain protected.

In some instances, you may decide not to hire an attorney. If you incurred little property damage and did not sustain injuries, you may not require the services of an attorney. Under these circumstances, insurance companies can handle small claims. Nonetheless, it is still wise to consult with an attorney before moving forward without one.

While less serious accidents may be handled without counsel, there are many instances when you will certainly need a personal injury attorney to represent you. Cases involving serious injuries or death, significant loss of earnings due to missing work or large medical bills are all instances when you should seek a lawyer. Many insurance companies make it extremely difficult to receive compensation; a personal injury attorney will represent your best interests and ensure you receive a fair settlement for your your injuries, medical expenses, loss of earnings and pain and suffering.
