Accidents happen every single day. Most of the time, they are simple affairs: fender benders. However, there are some instances in which things become more complicated; at that point, you need a San Antonio accident attorney in your corner to handle your case. Here are some reasons why you need to hire an attorney if you have been in an accident:
- When the fault of the accident is contested. If the other driver or their insurance company does not admit or accept fault, you need someone to fight this battle for you in court. There is too much at stake for you to try to do it alone.
- When you have paid a substantial amount of money out-of-pocket. If your medical expenses and loss of income begins to eat into your savings significantly, it is time to consult an attorney. An attorney can help speed along with your case and prevent your losses from mounting further.
- When you want to use an alternative dispute resolution method. An attorney can handle negotiations with the insurance company and the other party/parties involved in the accident. Your attorney can try to get a settlement for you without having to go through the courts or put you through any additional mental or emotional strain.
- When you don’t have more time to invest in settling your claim. If you have missed time from work, you are probably already out a substantial amount of money and simply cannot afford to spend any more time in court. If you turn your case over to an attorney, they can handle all the details so you can concentrate on life.
No one ever wants to be in a car accident. It is at best a nuisance and at worst a life-altering event. Having a San Antonio accident attorney on your side can help ease some of the distress you are experiencing. For more information, contact the Law Offices of Pat Maloney at (210) 934-6609.
