Why you should hire a car accident attorney

On Behalf of | Nov 21, 2022 | Car Accidents |

Should you consult with a personal injury attorney after sustaining injuries in a car crash? Yes!

On your own, you are at a significant disadvantage when trying to deal with experienced insurance adjusters. You can only benefit from the help of an experienced personal injury attorney. There are many pitfalls for the unwary, and you can unintentionally limit yourself, your insurance benefits, and your ultimate recovery without a skilled personal injury attorney in your corner.

There are many tasks that a car accident lawyer will handle for you so that you can focus on your recovery. Those necessary tasks can be time-consuming and frustrating. Being injured in a crash, plus dealing with these tasks, can be overwhelming you if you have to deal with them on your own. While pursuing medical treatment, being out of work and trying to keep up your family and household can be so daunting that you may think pursuing a personal injury case is the last thing you have time for. A skilled personal injury lawyer will take those tasks off your hands and take active steps to gather the right evidence, make sure you’re treated fairly by the insurance companies, help you deal with medical billing issues, and monitor various facets of your case—all so that you can focus on what really matters, rather than on multitudes of paperwork and phone calls from insurance companies.

A guide, ally, recordkeeper, and protector

Working with an experienced personal injury attorney, you gain the benefit of a legal advocate prepared to help you through every post-collision step and seek a fair resolution for your case. An attorney will serve you as a:

  • Knowledgeable guide: For the uninitiated, the justice system can be overwhelming. With a personal injury attorney on your side, you gain a legal counselor who can review your case, provide valuable insight, explain potential outcomes, and represent you at every step, from intake to trial. Knowledge, training, and experience are central to choosing an advocate for your personal injury case.
  • Meticulous recordkeeper: Building an effective legal case requires a skilled attorney who will get things moving swiftly. There are often mountains of emails, letters, records, bills, and other correspondence and evidence that need to be tracked and organized in order to present your case as effectively as possible. Obtaining evidence in support of your case before it vanishes or witnesses start to forget—or can’t later be found—is something an experienced attorney will manage for you. An attorney may hire private investigators to obtain crucial documents, review the crash details, and interview witnesses, and work to preserve evidence that may otherwise disappear without quick action.
  • Valuable ally: Extensive injuries may require a great amount of medical treatment. While your medical treatment should be determined between you and your treating doctors, an attorney may have insight or help direct you to appropriate medical professionals, while also dealing with inquiries from insurance companies and hospitals. A skilled personal injury lawyer will be in your corner and can help take care of your legal case while you focus on your recovery.
  • Reliable protector: You should look to hire an attorney who has your best interests in mind at all times, whether seeking a settlement at the negotiating table, or a jury verdict in a courtroom. An attorney protects you from the pitfalls of the legal system, self-interested insurance companies, and other issues as they come up while seeking a fair resolution for your personal injury case.

If you’ve been seriously injured due to someone else’s driving conduct, a personal injury lawyer can be invaluable. Most attorneys represent personal injury victims on a contingency fee basis, so it can only help to consult with a personal injury lawyer early in your case. On the other hand, waiting too long can result in irreparable harm to your case. If you have been injured in a car crash, we recommend you consult with a lawyer at your first opportunity. At Klampe Law Firm, we offer free consultations to personal injury victims
